There's nothing hotter in interior design right now than farmhouse style. Think vintage linens, scuffed pine floorboards, family-style dining tables and galvanized buckets overstuffed with cozy quilts. Here: five simple ways to get the look you crave for less than you might think!
Time to freshen up the walls with a new coat of paint. Colors like gray, taupe and cream will form the base of your farmhouse style. These colors give your home a white-washed look, a fresh slate and a neutral background. A couple of gallons, and you'll be amazed at the immediate change.
Change the entire look of your living room, family room or dining space in a matter of minutes. Choose a beautiful, easy-to-apply sticker with a saying that brings a smile. After the simple application, build a new gallery wall around it with family photos. The matte finish of the decal ensures that it looks painted right on – and better yet – won't ruin your new paint job.
Don't underestimate the difference a simple tablecloth can make in updating the entire look of a room. Simple stripes, faded patterns or even a burlap runner give your space style to spare. Extend the life of your old sofa or ottoman and match your new space by working on some DIY slip covers.
Have a bookshelf or china cabinet? Box up some of your tired décor and freshen your space with a new collection in white or cream. Visit your local thrift store and pick up white platters, bowls, pitchers, and plates. Display the items as a group and stand back to admire your handiwork.
With just a few dollars and a weekend's time, you'll be well on your way to updating your home décor. Farmhouse style is cozy, warm and inviting – we're sure you're going to love it.
