What is Urban Farmhouse?January 22, 2017
Do you love the country farmhouse look, but maybe not the chickens in the backyard? Love your neighborhood but wouldn’t mind accessorizing your home as if you lived in the country? Well it’s easy to incorporate a farmhouse look into your home. It’s called Urban Farmhouse and we scouted the shop for some easy ways to incorporate the look into your own home, without betting the barn:
Chicken Wire: There are many ways to accessorize your home using chicken wire and this basket is a great, functional piece. I’ve also seen ideas online using chicken wire in lighting, cabinet fronts, and picture frames.
Distressed Furniture: This rustic table is a perfect example of how you can work a distressed piece of furniture into your home decor to give it a farmhouse feel. I can just imagine all of the wonderful meals that were eaten on this drop leaf table.
Statement Signs: If this rooster wall hanging doesn’t scream farmhouse, I don’t know what does! Incorporating antique or statement signs is a great way to create a country look with minimal effort.
Checked Prints: Our Logan check valances are the perfect farmhouse compliment for any room. You can find similar checked prints in tablecloths, napkins, bedding, and throw pillows.
Rustic Metal: This six compartment metal bucket is a must have for any farmhouse kitchen. Works great for backyard picnics and on game day too. Galvenized is the way to go.
Sunflowers: You can never have enough sunflowers in an open field! Look for ways to use these beautiful blooms in your decorating…even if the real thing is not in season in your countryside.
Canister Display: Keep the most used kitchen items at the ready with a lidded canister set.
Cotton Wreath: We just received a shipment of the springy-est cotton wreaths you can imagine. Any natural element is going to be a perfect compliment for farmhouse decor.
Rustic Wood: Even something as simple as a rustic wood picture frame can add a farmhouse touch to any room.
As you can see, it’s not difficult to bring the style and comfort of Urban Farmhouse into your home decorating. Just look for simple, natural elements that embrace a relaxed feel. Urban Farmhouse embraces simple lines, imperfections, and the beauty of the outdoors.
