On the show Fixer Upper, Joanna Gaines’s enthusiasm for farmhouse décor boosted the popularity style. But there’s more to the look than what Gaines favored. In a bedroom, it takes only a few objects – a wooden sliding door and chandelier, for example – to move closer to farmhouse style. Combining woven materials and old wood accents blurs the line between boho and farmhouse. Farmhouse can also meet industrial by adding metal and bursts of saturated color. A dramatic farmhouse style can be accomplished by introducing black colors. Farmhouse is similar to shabby chic with a European aesthetic, breezy coastal, and many other creative designs.
- It is entirely possible that the creaky floorboards and down mattresses of old farm houses were just the best those old farmers could do.
- But seen through the rose-colored glasses of later generations, those problematic portions of old-world living seem charming.
- So charming and desirable to modern eyes, do these accouterments seem, that a whole design is now called “Farm.”
“The wooden sliding door and chandelier are unmatched statements that play nicely against the wooden ceiling, white walls, and bedding without feeling too gritty.”
