Design Trends: Farmhouse Chic
If you’ve ever watched the cable channel HGTV, then you’re probably familiar with Joanna Gaines and her signature rustic style. Though she has made it better known, Farmhouse Chic has been a prominent interior design style for over a decade. Made accessible by Pinterest and Houzz, Farmhouse Chic is a trend that is here to stay!
Defined by its neutral color palette and use of reclaimed wood, leather, and metal, this approachable style to decorating works well in many homes. To best achieve this look, start with pieces that have an industrial look and distressed details. Upholstered furniture should have a linen-esque feel. Simple artwork is ideal and tones of charcoal, or black and white work best. Antique architectural finds such as shutters, doors, windows, or benches complement this style; use these weathered accents to hang on the walls or use as seating for the dining table.
Furniture with clean lines keeps the look sophisticated but don’t forget to layer with fresh patterns and textures to add visual interest. Clutter and disarray are frowned upon in the farmhouse chic style; every item should be in its place and have a purpose; whether that is purely for aesthetics or truly functional.
One of the best features of the farmhouse chic look is the use of reclaimed and vintage goods. In a time where being environmentally conscious is a growing trend, salvaged and upcycled items serve a new purpose and get a second chance at life. They also add a sense of history and character to the home.
We love this style at Oskar Huber and have selected some items to inspire you to create your own farmhouse chic home!
