The Vintage Farmhouse Decor Style

 

From the most basic point of view, a farmhouse is the main residence on a farm. Since most farms are in the rural areas, farmhouses were made almost entirely from materials sourced either from local markets or from within the farm.

Today, the vintage farmhouse style is becoming popular among homeowners. The idea of having this decor style is, however, not to make the house look old but to incorporate modern decor designs with traditional housing ideas.
 

 

Tips to Transform Your Home Into a Vintage Farmhouse

 

This transformation process is not a complete makeover of your home. The idea here is to help you come up with ways of adding a vintage farmhouse touch to your house, give you some tips on how you could accessorize your home and then leave the rest to you.

The best part is that you can actually do it all by yourself.

So, let’s do this.  

 

The Kitchen

 

If you’re going to have a farmhouse kitchen, make sure you don’t leave out a large to medium size sink. You often find white sinks made of stone in a farmhouse. It really adds a touch of rustic to the kitchen.

Think of the right size that would have been used to hold farm produce. A soapstone sink will do well for most people.

# Next, we have white kitchen cabinets and open shelves for placing everything you need. If you are short of space or have a small kitchen, adding a kitchen pantry will solve storage problems. I love the look of this one:

# Also, add in some wooden utensils. These could include spoons, plates, and racks. The idea here is to bring some history into the kitchen, and almost create the impression of having inherited some utensils from your great grandma.

# Another classic to have in a farmhouse kitchen is a wire basket and/or shelving. You can use them to store kitchen towels, aprons, and some groceries.

The Bedroom

 

Rustic wooden flooring is good for the whole house but just perfect for the bedroom. You can decide to leave it plain and natural or bring in an old but clean carpet. Some stores stock antique mats and carpets to complement wooden floors so it should not be hard for you to shop for nice traditional designs.

The one below with a distressed design is perfect for the bedroom or living room.

Consider getting new bed frames, especially classic designs or wrought iron and shop for vintage themed quilts for your bedding. I have also seen people who have used grain sacks to create nice pillow covers.

If getting a new bed sounds too large scale, try pairing the one you have with a vintage chest and a vintage bedside lamp.

Create a warm and cozy atmosphere with this lamp. A perfect addition to a farmhouse style bedroom.

The Living Room

 

This is where most of the attention goes. Everything about a farmhouse living room revolves around vintage furniture, and you know this is something to invest in. Mix and match your current fittings with side chairs, stools and small tables made of rustic wood.

A rustic fireplace could be the focal point of your living room. For a distressed fireplace style mix bricks and wood. Add few rustic ornaments to complete the look. So beautiful!

A farmhouse living room also looks great with rural artifacts like paintings of livestock and the beautiful countryside. Then, whatever you do, don’t forget the lights. Barn style pendants, rustic style lamps and gooseneck sconces look amazing anywhere in the house.

For the dining area, have a nice classic farm table preferably crafted entirely by hand. And remember, a farm table should be made entirely of solid wood.

The Porch

 

Since almost all farmhouses had an extended living space on the porch or patio, your new vintage home should have one too. To create the full farmhouse style you can get potted flowers and plants, rustic signs, two or three rocking chairs and a swing.

Extra Vintage Farmhouse Decor Tips

 

If you haven’t noticed yet, the secret in making a vintage farmhouse is in the mixing and matching. So, I encourage you to try as much as possible to get small old accessories and look for places to put them.

In addition, you could also plant a small garden for herbs. If you don’t have enough space, plant some of the herbs in pots and have them join the flowers on the porch. These plants will invite beautiful butterflies to your home while at the same time keep off bad insects like mosquitoes.
