Decoration Ideas for the 1800’s Farmhouse Plans
1800’s Farmhouse Plans – Many people dream of owning a farm and decorating or renewing it. However, really owning and decorating that house is a much more challenging proposition. The high ceilings, large windows and giant spaces that look so inspiring can become cavernous if not properly decorated. Use color, furniture, accessories and creative arrangement to make the most of your farm.
The traditional farmhouse looks for well-loved and vintage items in spaces full of color and light. You can go shabby chic and use handmade quilts and floral vintage textiles and wall art, or you can give it a bit of a Scandinavian angle with the purest white against the cool blue. Furniture should be sturdy and useful, such as a wooden dining table with benches to sit on or reuse an antique door as a coffee table. Painting the furniture with whitewashed or distressed finishes adds a down style home.
The country’s approach to decorating the country house has a little more color and patterns. The palette is often echoed by a sunny spring day, bright yellow, grass green, and blue sky. Curtains, tablecloths, napkins, and fabrics look great in gingham. Furniture is often primitive style, with details such as board balls, wrought iron hooks scrollwork. Vintage posters, metal wall art or decorative plates placed on brackets or mounted on the wall are ideal art. Accessories can include nest boxes, handmade dolls or a collection of old milk jugs.
