The classic farmhouse can be chic while embracing a simpler style in décor. With a mix of rural living and relaxed and modest design aesthetic, farmhouse designs are making a strong comeback. While I may like the design and feel of a farmhouse, I still prefer the convenience of living in the city. Because of this, I’ve found a way to incorporate the vintage appeal to my home.
Originally, farmhouses were decorated with whatever was handy and practical. These days more thought tends to go into decorating in farmhouse style, but practicality is still an important factor. Nothing should be too delicate or precious. Instead items should be hardy while still maintaining some sophistication and style. Also, a home decorated in this style should consist of hand-me-downs and flea market finds combined with newer pieces.
