Adding Farmhouse Style to Your Home

May 04, 2016

 

Farmhouse style is all the rage at the moment.  A big reason due to the ever talented Joanna Gaines from HGTV's Fixer Upper.  She has brought modern farmhouse style to the living rooms of millions of fans.  I being one of them.  I just can't get enough.  

In a perfect world, we would be friends. ;)

So, if you are like me and love this style, then this post is for you!  

Adding farmhouse style to your home is easy.  You don't have to actually live on a farm to achieve this look.  Farmhouse style is no longer just cows and chickens.  It's a feeling and a lifestyle. A blend of character and comfort.  A mix of old and new.  Rustic and refined.  

Here are some great elements to add to your home to achieve this look.  

1.  Rustic/Weathered Pieces
These pieces whether old or new tell a story.  They evoke a feeling of the past.  Something that has been cherished for years and will be cherished for years to come.
