Emily's Farmhouse Style Tips

Mix + Match Metals and Woods

"While you want to keep things fresh, add hints of the unexpected. There's nothing wrong with matching your faucet, lighting and hardware, but it's that much nicer to do a mix of metals."

Step Inside

Incorporate Open Shelving

"Some may say this is trendy, but I think open shelving is timeless and a beautiful way to display both everyday and decorative items that you (and your guests) want to look at! If you're worried about storage or dust, just do a small section."

Layer Textures

"Farmhouse style is all about achieving a collected, lived-in look, and that means layering textures. This will add visual interest and build depth throughout your home."

Keep Colors Minimal

"I think the farmhouse style is appealing because it's so inviting. Too much color or too many bold colors, and it starts to get away from that." 

Step Inside

Add Herringbone

"Maybe this screams more Parisian apartment, but it's got historical roots and is the loveliest addition to a home, whether on the floors or the walls."

Incorporate Vintage-Inspired Elements

"Vintage items have stories to tell and can set your design apart. Sometimes vintage can be worthy investment, but there are also many beautiful and affordable accents you can find on places like Etsy and Ebay (and certainly more unique)!"
