Style of the Month: Farmhouse Design

Characterized by items typically found in a rural American farmhouse, this design style uses natural wood, worn metals, enamels and other accessories to bring new meaning to the phrase “what’s old is new again”. Farmhouse interior designers prize comfort above formality and believe mismatched charm will trump perfect every time.

One of the most enticing things about the farmhouse style is that you don’t have to give your home a complete makeover to give it a try. When done right, you can enjoy the charm of this décor without breaking the bank.
