Right now, the rage in decorating is farmhouse style. I have always been a fan of this rustic chic way of decorating. Typically, rustic chic is a blending of the old and warm accessories with more modern and cool details. Farmhouse style incorporates a lot of rustic or vintage items with a lot of white. A neutral palette with warm, rustic accessories make a room especially comfortable which basically defines a farmhouse.
How To Create Rustic Chic
It’s fairly easy to accessorize with vintage or antique pieces. There are so many antique malls, flea markets and garages sales that are filled with all sorts of that wonderful and nostalgic paraphernalia. But, decorating with the old isn’t the only way to achieve a farmhouse style. Decorating farmhouse style can also be achieved by creating something new for your space that is comfortable, warm and inviting. Decor craft projects not only provide a fun new accessory but the fact that the new accessory is handmade makes it perfect for a farmhouse style.
