Decorating in Farmhouse Style

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

Farmhouse style is all about rustic decor, primitive accents and going back to our roots. Like a photo from the past, this room exemplifies all that is charming about the perfect farmhouse; take a look below as we break down each element.

Rush Seat Chair in English PineWood Furniture

The drop leaf wood table beautifully takes center stage in this room, and is surrounded by simple slat-back chairs that have distressed surfaces and a well-loved appeal. They feature a similar finish, but could vary in design for a mismatched look brought together by the rustic, minimal aesthetic.

Large Armoire or Hutch

Also wood, this hutch could be used for storing linens, table settings and so much more, and its large stature fills the room with primitive appeal. This is a practical furniture piece because you can display items on top and have decorative storage space for many of your things in a dining room, bedroom, kitchen or hallway.

Period LightingBlack Onion Lantern

Did you notice the onion lantern and candlesticks near the hutch in the back of the room? These are perfect for creating the farmhouse look, in addition to bringing extra light to a room.

Rustic Wall Art

Folk art designs and country landscapes complement the rustic contents of the room, especially if the wall art itself is crafted out of wood, features a warm patina or is a historical reproduction.

Other Accents

The wing-back chair was historically used to protect the sitter from drafts and to keep the heat from a fireplace around the seating area. They may serve the same purpose in some homes today, but this elegantly designed chair also adds notes of formality and decoration to any space. In the room above, a large pattern covers the upholstery, which enhances the beauty of the wooden legs and traditional appeal of the other furniture. Large area rugs also adorn the room in pattern and folk art color, protecting the beautiful hardwood floors and adding an extra element of comfort underfoot.

The Barn Door: A Favorite Indoor Trend

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

Now that spring has almost entirely taken over our minds, gardens, pastels, fresh curtains and lighter bedding are all factors in our spring redecorating projects. If you’re planning a renovation or major redecorating endeavor for the spring or summer, now is the time to get started! A trend that has been gaining in momentum for the past couple of years is the addition of a barn door, especially indoors. While many of you may have actual barns with original barn doors, or have already incorporated a barn door into your country home, seeing different ways they are used and different variations on the barn door may spark some interest to change its appearance or function this year. And, if the way you use or display a barn door in your home is different than what you are about to see, share a picture with us; we always welcome more inspiration. Here are some of our favorites.

Rustic Meets Modern
The beautiful stain and the primitive hardware of this large door is in harmony with the bright yellow wall and recessed lighting by way of the hardwood floor and trim, giving it new life.

Just Modern
This barn door is hard to miss – even with a large plant between it and the camera. We like this pop of color because it brightens up the room and makes the door itself a piece of art.

If it looks like a door…
It probably is one, but we like how this barn door is used simply to brighten the space and add interest to a bare wall. It may not open to another room, but we like how creatively it is being used: the glass panels give the almost grungy look of the room a cleaner aesthetic.

Seeing Double
We like the glass panes at the top of this single barn door…

…but we like them even better at the top of the double doors. Whether they close or not, the doubled version really gives the space a homey feel, and ties the fun country look together while maintaining the formal look of the wood floors. And for those who need symmetrical accents, these are the ones for you.
