Farmhouse decorating is warm, cozy, relaxing, and full of charm and character. It eschews modern sensibilities and goes back to a simpler time. That said, farmhouse style is surprisingly savvy. To keep a farmhouse from looking too “country kitsch” there needs to be a balance of old and new.
Originally, farmhouses were decorated with whatever was handy and practical. These days more thought tends to go into decorating in farmhouse style, but practicality is still an important factor. Nothing should be too delicate or precious. Instead items should be hardy while still maintaining some sophistication and style. Also, a home decorated in this style should consist of hand-me-downs and flea market finds combined with newer pieces. For instance, an old harvest table and shaker cabinets combine beautifully with stainless steel appliances and modern light fixtures in a farmhouse kitchen.
