There’s nothing like living in a place that reminds you of home. A place that is warm, inviting and brings back memories of grandma’s apple pie – homes with farmhouse style seem to do just that. This design style is very popular because it can be charming and cozy, but beware if you don’t get it right it can also be cliche: no roosters, gingham curtains with matching pillows or retro florals please!
Today’s farmhouse look is all about old-fashioned simplicity: a practical and clutter-free space that is in tune with nature. Neutral colors and weathered woods combined with small vintage touches can serve as the foundation for this style. Try playing with finishes, textures,and furniture styles to define the space and make it work for you. For example, mixing a little bit of old and new will give this traditional look a modern twist. In the kitchen, a culinary faucet like the Blanco Meridian, would add some edginess and contrast to the antique woods and natural materials. To bring in a more traditional feel try antique bronze finishes and faucet shapes with old world flair. A cozy country bathroom isn’t complete without a soaking tub, and to really get that farmhouse feel try a more retro clawfoot style. There are a couple of decor staples that can really bring farmhouse style into your kitchen or bath and we’ve rounded up some of our favorites below. Let us know what you think!
