How To Achieve The Farmhouse Look

The farmhouse look is definitely a trend I am completely on board with. I love it. I think we have to give HGTV's Fixer Upper credit for this one. Joanna Gains is best known for her classic farmhouse style. She has an effortless way of making homes beautiful, and though she doesn't always use her classic style, viewers swoon towards her decor. Achieving this farmhouse style is easy when you know what to look for and how to use the pieces you find. 


One thing that is classic farmhouse style is using fresh flowers and greenery. Joanna does this all the time and it's beautiful. 

This wooden vase centerpiece is from Kirklands. I love how the vases are at different heights and the mix of the rustic wood with the glass bottles. This would look beautiful in the center of a farm table. 



This hanging vase trio from Magnolia is another favorite of mine. This would look adorable in a little girls room, or even on a back porch. It's a piece that is so unusual and so beautiful it will be a showstopper anywhere. 

I love using fresh flowers in decor. It brings such a fresh feel to the space. Don't be afraid to step outside the box either. It doesn't have to be your traditional vase of flowers. Anyway you can bring fresh floral in a room will make a huge impact. 

Another way to incorporate farmhouse style is to mix materials, such as metal and wood. This is a trend you will see a lot out in stores. This tiered tray from Antique Farm House is such a great way to incorporate this trend. I love using trays like this for entertaining. The different heights add interest to your table, plus they're really pretty to look at! 



Lighting is a fun way to bring out farmhouse style. This beautiful chandelier from World Market is another great way to use mixes materials. Everything about this piece is beautiful. I love the lantern look. This light would look perfect in a kitchen over an island, or in a dining room over a table. 



Let's talk wall decor. This is an easy way to add design to a room and with the right piece it can add some farmhouse style. You have probably seen wall signs everywhere lately. They are a huge trend and I love it. This one is from Etsy and is one of my favorite sayings. I've seen it all over Instagram and I'm surprised I haven't bought one yet. The simplicity of the design and what it says emanates farmhouse style. 


On the topic of wall decor, chalkboards are a classic farmhouse staple. They are rustic and simple and the perfect piece of wall art. You can change out what it says from season to season, or you can use them for to do or grocery lists. This chalkboard from Gordmans is a great one. It has hooks on the bottom so it really is a dual purpose piece. 




I can't talk about farmhouse style without talking about tables. When you think farmhouse you probably think farm table. This is a staple item when incorporating farmhouse style. There are a lot of different styles of "farm tables". These are a few of my favorites. 

All of these tables are perfect for farmhouse style. They are each different and all fit into the style. They are rustic, yet can be made formal with the right chairs and accessories. Put a beautiful table runner on it and a pretty floral arrangement in the middle and you have the perfect centerpiece to your home! The dining table is one of my favorite pieces in a home. It's where the family gathers and so many memories are made. 

I hope this helped you think of ways to incorporate farmhouse style into your home. When in doubt, just tell yourself to channel your "inner JoJo".
