Farmhouse style has a way of looking effortlessly stylish but this is not your grandmothers style. There are some key elements to keep in mind to acheive an updated farmhouse style look…

  1. Maintain an artisan / vintage mindset when decorating and collecting items for your farmhouse room.
  2. Painting rooms or your house with a whitewashed, sunny, French provincial appearance is a good idea.
  3. Add shutters in a contrasting colour. When you consider the charm factor, barn red or China blue go well together with a brick-exterior house.
  4. Gravel, brick and flagstone have a typical farmhouse appeal.
  5. If your house isn’t made of bricks, paint the siding with French blue, farmhouse white, or bard red to give your home a unique and rustic look.
  6. Plant some English ivy during the spring or fall seasons and watch them trail up your exterior walls to achieve that ultimate rural feel.
  7. Maximise open space inside your home. Doorless cupboards extend your interior storage space and flaunt some of your collectibles and valuables.
  8. Add a butcher block to your kitchen for a timeless and elegant rustic vibe. If nicks build up inside, simply sand them off and apply some oil. You may also want to consider purchasing a farmhouse sink that retains its appeal for years on end.
