So does anyone else like watching “Fixer Upper”? Although as it’s been reported, Chip and Joanna Gaines last season is underway, their Farmhouse Decorating Style will stay with us for a long time.
And from fan favorites like Shiplap to open concept floor plans we’ve learned a lot from their Farmhouse decorating aesthetic.
But how do you develop a Farmhouse Decorating plan? Above all, Farmhouse design is an authentic design style with a sense of ease and confidence. So, enjoy yourself and let your creative side shine~
First, we’ll begin with Shiplap. And what exactly is Shiplap? Basically, Shiplap is a widely used term used for a wood plank wall design like the one below. In addition, shiplap can be painted or stained.
Second, home decor accessories. Notably, some widely used accessories are comprised of open shelving displaying authentic, everyday pieces like a collection of dinnerware & glassware. Including artisanal accessories or a simple sprig of greens in a glass jar.
And lastly, the use of wood. With this in mind, wood can be used in many forms. For instance, wood flooring, furniture, accessories or shiplap accent walls, wood is a major component of any Farmhouse design. And the design below has it all! From a pair of reclaimed wood doors, wood ceiling beams, wood mantle, wood flooring, wood cocktail table, wood & cane back chairs, and wood artwork.
Accessories are often times flea market finds intended for one use but transformed unexpectedly in artistic ways. Such as the wooden box turned planter on the cocktail table above.
My Simple Real Life Truth ~ I’ve always admired my friend Wendy’s design style, which was Farmhouse through and through. Her ability to hunt down flea market finds and transform them into works of art was inspiring. And more than that her joy was infectious! One of my favorite accessories is an antiqued door that she just leaned against a large wall as artwork, it is just stunning!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you’re all having a good week! ~ Nancy
