I was recently asked to create a Farmhouse Cottage inspiration board for Hometalk, featuring some of my favorite designs and projects reflecting this particular decorating style.
If you aren’t familiar with Hometalk, it’s a wonderful how-to home and garden online community, where you can discover brilliant and affordable ideas for your home and garden. You can also ask questions and get firsthand advice from amazing homeowners and pros across the country.
Today, there are many interpretations of Farmhouse Cottage style. There’s modern farmhouse, shabby farmhouse, french farmhouse, yada, yada, yada. My interpretation of it may be completely different than yours, and that’s ok, it’s your style! And no, you don’t have to actually live in a farmhouse to incorporate this look into your own home!
Farmhouse decor is a reflection of a more relaxed, simplified, vintage inspired way of life.
Farmhouse Cottage style can be very simple, rustic, or primitive. It can also have a shabby, elegant, or romantic tone. Or it can incorporate bits and pieces of all of these elements.
I love the simplicity of Farmhouse Cottage style, but I also naturally lean toward anything frenchy, and I love gilt! I tend to mix several styles, and have never been one to follow the “rules” of decorating. Most of the time, I fly by the seat of my pants. I’m sure somewhere there are professional designers cringing over that statement!
Our Hometalk inspiration board is filled with lots of beautiful projects and photos, so that you can get some ideas for creating your own Farmhouse Cottage look!
Come visit with us on Hometalk and check out the board, click through the projects, see which one speaks to you and reflects your own personal Farmhouse Cottage style!
