What is farmhouse décor? Plus, products to help you achieve the look at home

If you’ve dreamed of living a charmed life in the countryside, then the rustic chic elements that farmhouse décor offers will surely please your senses.

Recently, one of our favourite Hollywood celebrity couples, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, opened the doors to their home to reveal a big barn-style space that is the perfect embodiment of the farmhouse décor aesthetic. In his interview with Architectural Digest, Kutcher shares that he wanted his LA home named KuKu Farms to look like an old lived-in barn yet modern and relevant.

Kutcher isn’t the only one gravitating towards a country chic aesthetic with clean finishes. Think reclaimed wood, high ceilings with beams, sliding doors, whitewashed furniture, and rustic metal accents. A great embodiment of this type of home décor is A House We Built, a modern custom-made farmhouse with predominant hues of white, cream, beige, beige, and minimalistic finishes. If you’re looking to give your space the same fresh feels, then our selection of farmhouse décor pieces and styling suggestions is sure to add that heehaw to your home.

Whitewashed elements

The Decor Kart

Among the décor styles that once went out of favour but are now slowly returning to the scene are whitewashed elements. From small crafty components to big park bench style furniture, whitewashed pieces are an intrinsic part of barn style living. Our recommendation is to start small with decorative bookends from The Decor Kart with sparrows on both sides.
