You don’t have to live on a farm to appreciate the style of a rustic respite. There are plenty of lighting and décor options to help you achieve a farmhouse feel wherever you reside.
Vintage and Rustic Feel
The most common features found in farmhouse architectural style include a connection to the land and nature, as well as simplicity in design that reflects the life of a farmer. Rustic, recycled materials and DIY projects create a warm and welcoming environment for homeowners and guests. The look is generally unpretentious and uses repurposed and reclaimed design elements such as weathered wood and tarnished metals to evoke a connection to the past, in the same way vintage style reflects the look and feel of an earlier era.
A new lighting fixture is a simple way to inject a farmhouse feel into your living space. The Murray Feiss Hartsville Wall Sconce fits perfectly into any office or library. The sweeping silhouette of the Hartsville lighting collection by Feiss was inspired by the farmhouses and country life of the colonial American heartland. With a soft, distressed finish in dark weathered zinc coupled with weathered oak detailing, this design is perfect for any number of settings. Pair the fixture with vintage wooden furniture to create a relaxing, rustic work space.
Farmhouse light fixtures for any room
The kitchen and dining area have always been closely connected to farm life. The long-standing tradition of farm-to-table cooking and family gathering make it a fun area to try out a more rustic style. Illuminate your space with the Quoizel Tavern Chandelier featuring Victorian Edison style bulbs and detailed design, a true nod to the past. The rich rubber wood, a 100 recycled material, complements the darkest bronze finish and enhances the timeless look of this piece.
To give your living room the warm and inviting vibe of farmhouse living, seek out comfy furniture and welcome visitors and friends with a statement piece in the entryway. The Savoy House Ashland Chandelier brings an air of stylish, French Country beauty to your living space. A white washed driftwood finish highlights the intricate and elegant detailing while the wood pendalogues are sure to spark conversation among guests.
For the bedroom, choose neutral colors like grays and whites and consider decorating the walls with vintage art or antique style decor like the Uttermost Elliot Wall Mirror. With its hammered aluminum finish, distressed, burnished details and rust brown trim, the Elliot Wall Mirror brings farmhouse charm to your chambers.
The nice thing about farmhouse style is that it blends easily with other design styles so you can dabble in décor without having to fully commit. Focus on the details such as distressed finishes, primary colors and rustic touches to add some cozy country charm to any room in your home.
PRO TIP: Farmhouse style is all about do-it-yourself design. Look for items you can re-purpose or re-imagine. Use a mason jar in place of a vase, a bucket in place of a flower pot, make a small bookshelf out of a milk crate – have some fun down on the farm!
