Design Staples of the Farmhouse Interior Design Trend

Some easy steps to take to turn your home into a cozy, rustic dream.

As fall approaches, it’s that time to be reminded of the comfort of the farmhouse aesthetic. While it is good for all seasons, autumn in particular evokes feelings of wanting to cuddle up under a cozy blanket (preferably plaid patterned) with a cup of warm tea.

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood floors are an essential for the rustic farmhouse look — especially light neutrals. Typically, the wood doesn’t look too polished or manufactured. Knots in the wood and other small flaws can add to the rustic and organic feel of a home. The farmhouse style never wants anything to be too perfect!

Wood Accents

Yes, we know we just told you that hardwood flooring is essential for a farmhouse style, but when it comes to the farmhouse aesthetic, the more wood the better! The more wooden accents you can place around your home, the better.

Industrial Accents

Don’t worry, there’s more than just wood that goes into the basics of a farmhouse aesthetic (but it is a lot of it). Industrial accents are also an essential for every rustic look. These can be either decorative or serve a purpose within the house — or even both!
