At one time or another, everyone dreams of owning a one-hundred-year-old farmhouse with shiplap walls and a big wrap-around porch. The nostalgia and comfort invoked by farmhouse decor are almost universally appealing. Unsurprisingly, it has increased in popularity in recent years, and the neutral colors and inclusion of rustic antiques make it an easy to live with style.
35 Simple and Chic Farmhouse Living Room Design and Decor Ideas for Your Home
One of the keys to creating the perfect farmhouse livingroom is finding the right furniture. Casual and comfortable couches, rough-hewn barn-wood coffee tables, and natural decor elements typify the look. Since purchasing a whole new furniture set may be outside of your budget, making use of organically colored cotton or linen slipcovers, a few French country-inspired pillows, and thrift store finds can go a long way towards altering your livingroom’s look.
