Farmhouse is well known for its simplicity and functions. Simplicity usually comes from colors and how the decoration looks. As the name suggests, farmhouse was a type of houses that usually built in the farm area in many countries, which also includes a barn near the house.
Nowadays, people are known to modern farmhouse style. You don’t have to live on a farm to have the same atmosphere as the farmhouses. Just follow these ideas to bring the sensation close to where you are right now.
1. Strong Character of Color
One of the most crucial parts of achieving farmhouse atmosphere in your house is in selecting the colors. Pale colors are the most suitable for coloring the wall such as cream or gray, even most people would go white. It is recommended to use only one color for the wall, and don’t color your room differently. Should you have to color some parts differently, strictly avoid color that is overly bright, or too dark. These colors serve to make a simple calming and relaxing sensation inside the house.

2. Perfections In Imperfections
Farmhouses focus on functions, so not everything has to be shiny, polished or perfect, especially on the furniture. The older, the better. Old doors or windows, antique doorknob or window’s lock and all kinds of good-old furniture. Sometimes, you even have to add little distress to the furniture. All those imperfections will be the perfection.

3. Vintage Decorations
Get yourself some vintage points by adding wooden fixtures. Hanging shelves or wall shelves made of exposed wood are good. Have some unused wooden box or wooden barrels as a place to put flower vase. Have some spindles or wainscoting. Use a wired basket to put flowers or other things such as newspaper or magazines. Wall paneling using shiplap or beadboard will give extreme differences to the atmosphere, so having them is recommended.
These 3 ideas will surely give you drastic changes to your house if you apply all of them. Compared to other house styles, this style doesn’t require a lot of money, especially on decorations. Just look around your house. Used items are great for farmhouse style additions.
