Are you the type of person who likes calm, comfort and a romantic person? Then the farmhouse is the right style for your home. A farmhouse is a style of interior design that applies a rural atmosphere that is calm and blends with nature into the room of the house.
Although the farmhouse displays a typical rural atmosphere, this concept can also be applied to those of you who are in urban areas. So, how to apply this farmhouse style in the house? The following ways can help you get a warm and romantic farmhouse house design.
1. Farmhouse Bedroom Decorating Ideas
You don’t have to live on a farm to decorate in farmhouse style; You don’t have to live in a rural area. You just need to embrace the casual feel, nod to tradition, and the underlying heart-of-country vibe that typifies this welcoming, warm, and easy decorating style.
2. Old and New Mix in the Farmhouse Bedroom
Modern farmhouse style celebrates the traditional event while embracing the contemporary. Using found objects, antiques, or old-timey memorabilia as decor is a popular way to decorate the farmhouse bedroom. Here, three vintage straw hats add charm above the headboard.
3. Fireplace in the Bedroom
If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace in your bedroom, like the serene farmhouse bedroom from the wonderful decorating My Paradissi blog is shown here, you’re already halfway to country farmhouse style. If you don’t, but wish you did, consider installing the most real fireplaces that look almost real, but require no chips or produce, and no flames or ashes.
4. Shiplap Walls
Shiplap walls are a hallmark of farmhouse style. Often white, but sometimes colored in soft hues, like the pale grayish-green shown here, these wood-clad walls add a warm touch that almost feels nostalgic. If you are unable to panel your walls with real wood, check out the “real-looking” you have to get close to tell the difference “shiplap-design wallpaper.
5. Repurposing in the Farmhouse Bedroom
Repurposing, recycling, and “making do” are ways of life on the farm, and that outlook extends to the décor. While old shutters are a great substitute for traditional headboards, you can take the idea of even further, as the decorating blog for Thistlewood Farms did here. An entire wall of old shutters is an unexpected – and entirely wonderful – way to add whimsy and eye-catching style to a farmhouse bedroom.
6. DIY Headboard
Rustic wood and repurposed items are commonly found in the farmhouse style. For example, why settle for a traditional headboard when you could have a roughhewn and entirely wonderful DIY headboard made from old boards? And who needs a regular footboard when a vintage metal trough makes such a unique substitute?
7. Farmhouse Bedrooms and Quilts
Quilts and the farmhouse decorating theme go together like peanut butter and jelly. While you might be able to find a vintage quilt online, at an antique mall, or in a specialty shop, feel free to purchase a new quilt that merely appears to be old. Layering a quilt over a bedspread, as in the room shown here, is another hallmark of the farmhouse style.
8. Girl’s Farmhouse Bedroom
The farmhouse theme works just as well in a preteen or teen’s bedroom as it does in the master suite. Here, a charming modern farmhouse girl’s bedroom is sweetened with touches of pink, a small chandelier, and floral-decorated straw hats as wall art.
9. Yellow and White in the Bedroom
Buttery yellow is a classic farmhouse hue. Cheery as sunshine, warm and welcoming like a country hug at the end of the day, versatile enough to work with just about any other color, yellow walls set off the overall soft color scheme so prevalent in this casual decorating style.
10. Four-Poster Beds
Two pieces of furniture you’ll often find in the farmhouse bedroom are a four-poster bed and a traditional wooden rocking chair. Put together, as in this authentic.
