7 farmhouse kitchen must-haves

We’re always adding to and amending our dream kitchen wishlist, but most of us don’t have the budget for a total kitchen makeover. So today we’ve got seven farmhouse kitchen must-haves to achieve that classic country look on a classic country budget. šŸ˜‰

Farmhouse kitchen must-haves

 

Rooster decor

What country kitchen is complete without this traditional farmhouse staple? And these roosters won’t wake you up at the crack dawn!

Shiplap

The incredible criss-cross shiplap below adds instant character to any builder-grade kitchen island, and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. If you’re a little handy with a jig saw, hammer and a paint brush, you can DIY your way to a more charming country kitchen island. Googling “budget DIY kitchen island shiplap” is a great way to get you started.

Rustic brick or wood accents with a modern tile mosaic

We have some great examples of this in our Pinterest board on country kitchens, and you can find some darling wooden decor on our website.

WOW:

And don’t be afraid to choose an unorthodox color! We adore this farmhouse remodel with pastel blue-green cabinetry!

Is it galvanized accents you seek? Because we can definitely help you out with that.

Vintage lighting with copper and wood accents

You can find so many ways to incorporate copper accents into your decor, and since copper cooking utensils have made a big comeback, copper is a natural fit for a country kitchen theme.

Burlap or Tin letters

Accent letters are a great way to make a personal statement in any room of the house. The word “EAT” for instance, adds character and coordinates well if you have some of those galvanized accent pieces we mentioned above.

ICYMI: 4 mixed prints we dare you to try

4 mixed prints we dare you to try

Today we’re exploring how mixed prints can modernize even the most traditional country decor themes, and how you don’tĀ have to completely redesign a space in order to transform it.

When it comes to home decor, it’s safe to say we’re in the vintage camp. You won’t find a lot of funky squiggles and abstract geometric shapes here, and if you’re reading this, that’s probably just fine with you. But that doesn’t mean we’re behind the times. Even the most traditional country decor themes can rely on daring elements and boldly coordinated mixed prints.

The key to mixing your prints

  • * One print should be more simple and subtle, and the other print can be a littler rowdier.
  • * Match colors, not prints
  • * Coordinate prints with different size scales
  • * A single stripe, or simply striped pattern can be treated as a solid, or neutral pattern

Here are some ways you can blend patterns and incorporate mixed prints into some of our favorite country decor collections:

Grain Stripe with Summerville

Pewter Valance - SummervillePewter Striped Bedding

The single stripe in our Grain Stripe collection offers a simple design that’s easy to mix with other prints, like a plaid or even a differently patterned stripe. It’s the coordinating color palette that brings it all together.

Blackstone cotton braided rugs with Blackstone cotton valance

Woven Rag RugBlack plaid valance

These two coordinating prints are actually made for each other, so perhaps they’re not really that daring? But the black and tans do make a bold statement, and as mentioned above, the different scales of the plaid patterns are what adds character.

Stallion jute braided rug with Burlap stripe window treatments and decor

Earth tones are some of the easiest to coordinate because they don’t have to be a perfect match to look good. That’s why country braided rugs are so popular. You have warmth, charm, comfort, and they coordinate well with a variety of country patterns. Just add burlap!

Candlewicking florals + Mineral Stripe

Taupe valanceChindi style woven rug - Mineral Stripe

Florals + Stripes = LOVE. This is probably my favorite way to mix prints. You can really get creative and put a modern twist on traditional patterns. And the florals in our Candlewicking collection are subtle and easily coordinate with a variety of earthy tones.

we love to hear from you! How doĀ you mix country decor prints in your spaces?
