Farmhouse Interior Design Style
You are warm, sweet, and perfectly imperfect. Sitting on a porch drinking lemonade out of a mason jar while conversing with family members sounds like an ideal afternoon to you. You believe the kitchen is the heart of the home. You love things that tell a story or were part of something great. You find yourself frequenting the local antique shop. You are a great nurturer and probably have at least one recipe memorized. You like the objects in your home to have purpose and be pretty at the same time.
Design-wise, you probably have a collection of antiques and heirlooms, but struggle with knowing how to use them in your home. You are very nostalgic and may have a hard time editing through all the neat things you have acquired over the years. Finding a way to make things look cohesive may be a struggle for you. Also, you may want to break out of your monochromatic mold. Your home is probably more on the messy side, and want to know how to display your things and keep them organized at the same time.
The Farmhouse interior design style is one of the most persistent trends at the moment, however its origins date back centuries. The style originates from an agricultural-heavy America; small and rural farms. Today though, the history, traditions and characteristics are seen working cohesively with more modern features of our homes. Working agricultural features, such as wood and metal, this injects a rustic edge.
This style often includes:
- Rustic architectural finishes, such as wood and metals
- Structural beams
- Modern natural materials, such as leather, suede, wool and cashmere
- Where possible, incorporating agricultural hardware such as, hooks, door hardware and sliders
