There are days when I think it'd be absolutely lovely to live in a farmhouse. You too? If you love the farmhouse look, like I do, but don't live in a farmhouse (or anywhere near the country), there are some ways you can add some farmhouse to your home.
1. Open Shelving
2. Shiplap or Plank Walls
This is a feature I've admired for some time now. See this post. I'm also a big Fixer Upper fan (who isn't?) and I always love to see how Joanna incorporates shiplap into the homes they renovate. It's something I'd definitely be game to try someday in our home.
Never underestimate the power of a great light fixture. Light fixtures (and lamps, too!) can change the whole feel of a space. If you're looking to bring a bit of farmhouse to your home this way, look for fixtures like lanterns, metal barn pendants (they're a thing), and chandelier type fixtures that give off the farmhouse vibe, just to name a few. You'll know it when you see it.
4. A Farmhouse Sink
This is a for sure way to add a bit of farmhouse to your home. Your kitchen doesn't have to look like it came straight from the farm to have a farmhouse sink incorporated. A farmhouse sink can look really great in any kitchen.
Accessories, big or small, can be another great way to add a bit of farmhouse to your home. When choosing items look for natural, rustic, and/or vintage-y features. Think wooden bowls, natural fabrics (for rugs, pillows or curtains), jars, etc. You get the idea.
Your whole house doesn't have to be adorned with farmhouse features, but a touch or two, here and there, can be quite nice. What do you say? Are you a fan of bringing a bit of the farmhouse into your home?
