 Living Room Classic Farmhouse

Classic Farmhouse

The Classic Farmhouse style evokes feelings of being at ease. It's traditional without being meticulous, vintage without being like a library, and suitable for putting your feet up and staying awhile. This style is all about mixing relaxing furniture with recovered materials like recycled wood. Heirlooms and curios are right at home in Classic Farmhouse interiors, as long as they are sturdy. The texture of these heirlooms is crucial in the Farmhouse style. Most importantly, Classic Farmhouse is comfortable without being untidy.

The Classic Farmhouse is similar to the Country style; however, the Farmhouse style retains a certain sophistication level. Country style homes rely heavily on accessories while the Farmhouse style keeps them to a minimum.

How to Get This Look

 Let's start with the color, which is crucial to identifying the Farmhouse style. Paint with a color palette of warm or cool cream, beige, silver sage, or gray (aka neutrals). They all work together, so don't be afraid to mix and match. Then layer in some natural wood tones. Look for reclaimed woods with some scuffs and scrapes whenever possible, as this adds to the look's authenticity. If you like some of the rugs above, you can get them through the links below:

Beige  — Technicolor Bella Blue Area Rug

Gray — Karastan Euphoria New Ross Ash Grey

Silver Sage — Karastan Titanium Andeols Seaglass

Neutral White  — Technicolor Shelly Green & White Area Rug

Cool White  — Technicolor Hamilton Blue Area Rug

Warm White — Chateau Sydney White Area Rug

When it comes to patterns, you are safe with stripes, floral, and checker patterns. These patterns are known for being casual and relaxed; both vibes significant to accomplish that comfortable look.

When it comes to window coverings, look to; flat Roman shades, relaxed Roman shades, bamboo roller shades, cotton drapes, or wood shutters. These are all great choices since natural materials are integral to Farmhouse design.

Traditional rugs (like those listed above) or natural fiber rugs like those made from jute are incredible for Farmhouse decor. These are also inexpensive options that significantly push towards relief, an expected feeling to invoke with this style.

Paintings depicting farm life or wildflowers are an exquisite touch to a Farmhouse living room. These colors produced by the image can add vibrant color missing in the neutrals listed above. 

When in doubt, add mason jar candles or galvanized tin potted plants around to help liven the place. You may find this as an easy addition to any room in the house.
