The Barn Door: A Favorite Indoor Trend

We wrote about the barn door trend in 2016, and we still see it being incorporated into homes. A pantry door in a country kitchen; as a sliding entry into a powder room; the possibilities are quite endless.

Decorating in Farmhouse Style

This post was inspired by a primitive dining space that emphasizes the function, comfort and timeless appeal of farmhouse style.

Colorful Country Kitchens

Current farmhouse trends are commonly about whites and grays, so we compiled some colorful country kitchens that offer a more personal look.

Farmhouse Flooring We Love

This title really speaks for itself; is there anything better than a farmhouse [wood] floor?

Get the Look: A Cozy, Covered Country Porch

A must-have on – dare we say everyone’s – farm dream house: a beautiful porch. Since this is part of our Get the Look series, we’ve offered suggestions on how to attain the inspirational look with home accents from our catalog.
