Whether you live in an early 20th-century house on 10 acres of property or a high-rise apartment building in the heart of the city, you can make farmhouse style your own.
Make It A Natural
To enhance a rustic décor, you can’t go wrong with wainscoting painted in a soft neutral. Add dimension to the farmhouse look by painting the walls a darker neutral than the wainscoting. This will highlight the paneling and draw out the beauty of natural-wood furnishings.
Make every detail count
When you’ve got a great piece like an old unfinished bench, you need only a few extra accessories to make a memorable design statement. Choose a neutral color for walls; then, create just a pop of excitement by painting the trim or wall decorations a darker color.
