Farmhouse Style Is

2.24.2017

Farmhouse style has been all the rage the past few years and of course farms and farm houses have been around forever. It's so easy to add farmhouse style and today I'm sharing what farmhouse style is.


Farmhouse style is a mix of patterns.



It's mixing patterns and colors that you wouldn't thing work together, but they do since farmhouse style is about not matching.

It's old worn out quilts and a chippy bench.

It's painted furniture, antiques and maybe a farm tool thrown in.



It's cute art.

And maybe some cows.

It's a metal bed, layers of bedding and planked walls.

Old grain sacks can add a European or French farmhouse vibe.

The only thing new is the navy and white plaid pillow which I found several weeks ago at HomeGoods. It is huge and came with a very heavy feather insert and I bought it for a song and works perfectly in this farmhouse style guestroom.

Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. Very pretty and comfortable. It works so well with a lot of American architecture--the white farmhouse with a big porch.

    1. No, Linda, I'm afraid I don't. When I started painting that I didn't stop to take pics and write down each step. It just sort of happened.

  6. Beautiful Kim! You always do such an amazing job with bedding and bedrooms as a whole. Your beds always look like the perfect mix and are so inviting! You should write an e-book on styling beds. :)

    I love your carpet. I'm looking at different carpet for the bedrooms and wondered if you would pick this carpet again? I'm looking at something similar with a little darker jute color.

  8. Having grown up on a proper working farm I love farmhouse style and so much of what you say really is exactly as it was in England when I was a child. Things don't need to match, but they do need to be comfortable and inviting. I love this post, really great ideas for everyone. xx

  11. I wonder what the next big trend will be when this gets old. Remember when the country look was the rage in the 80's? I call his one Country Chic. My grandparents had a farm and their house didn't look anything like this but they did have a planked or ship lap wall.
