  • Color Palette

One of the most vital details for trying to convert your home into casual farmhouse style is the color palette that you choose to work with. Usually starting in the largest, most central room notate which rooms are visible to one another as this will help you decide the color palette. Farmhouse casual usually incorporates neutral tones that are similar in hues, but also coupled with a sophisticated punch of color to keep your eye moving about the space, taking it all in. Choosing soft, neutral hues to help create the flow between one room and the next will give your home interest as well as depth, and you can also rest assured that your colors work well together.

  • Texture

Texture is one of the easiest ways to achieve the farmhouse ambiance. By encompassing rustic wooden accents, burlap or even galvanized metals, the textures will add visual interest. To include a country wood aesthetic try using aged wooden wall décor, this not only adds wood grain texture but also embodies the rustic flavor of a farmhouse. Add galvanized metal textures easily with the addition of metal baskets as they will influence the space visually and will also add storage. 



  • Furniture & Rugs

Bring your space to life with the addition of farmhouse furniture and rugs! When choosing furniture to fit in with your farmhouse décor the choices are broad and expansive! Select a neutral colored or linen slipcover sofa for your living room, as the fabric will lighten and brighten your farmhouse-casual design. The epitome of farmhouse-style is the dining table, the more ‘well-loved’ and character the piece offers the better! While choosing your rug, select one that is a natural fiber rug such as a seagrass or sisal as this will elevate your farmhouse casual design instantly.
