We’ve already shared some ideas to make your space more rustic and cozy, which is great for the fall. Today I’d like to continue the topic with farmhouse style. Farmhouse chic is also rustic charm but a bit different – it’s a kind of a mix of shabby chic and rustic styles. Farmhouse interiors are done in creamy shades and with stained wood, they are cozy and very comforting, that’s exactly what we want in the fall. Now let’s have a look how to add such touches to your interior.
Wicker furniture is an indispensable part of rustic, cottage and farmhouse interiors, not only outdoor spaces. Go for some cool pieces for your kitchen and dining zone: these can be wicker stools for the breakfast space and comfy chairs for the dining space. You can paint the furniture with grey or creamy paint to fit a neutral interior, and even neutral wicker furniture will add a texture to the space. There’s much modern wicker furniture of eye-catchy shapes, for example, armchairs, side tables and benches, they will look cool and cozy yet very chic and modern.
Stained wood is another feature of farmhouse interiors, and it’s a perfect idea to make your space cozy and timeless. You can get various stained wood furniture to different spaces – your home office, kitchen, bathroom and other rooms, and if you don’t have a proper piece, you can DIY it and choose a shade of stain you like. Stained shelves and countertops, headboards and sideboards, benches and chairs are right what you need for a cozy farmhouse feel in your home.
Shutters can be used for various decor and functional DIYs in your home, they are great to add a vintage feel while keeping the interior farmhouse-like. Shutters can be attached to the wall and become cool farmhouse-inspired decorations or even a headboard for your bed – sand them a bit to give them a worn look. Shutters can be also turned into benches, chairs, shelving units, even a kitchen island! Paint them pastels or cream, add shelves or a countertop. This is a creative way to add a farmhouse feel to the space while making it eye-catchy and interesting.
