The New Year is almost here so why not think about some fresh Farmhouse Decor Ideas and Designs for 2020. Comfy, Cozy, Friendly and Welcoming is what it is all about. Here are a few simple ways to add that special Farmhouse Charm.
Interior design is its own kind of artistry. An undecorated house is the equivalent of a blank canvas, where you have the freedom to express yourself however you want. At the same time, a blank canvas can be intimidating. Where are you supposed to start? If you don’t have experience with interior design, you may feel overwhelmed with choosing paint colors, picking out furniture and strategizing your decor.
The first step to any interior design is to pick a theme or a style that you are going for. Many homeowners are leaning towards farmhouse decor because it’s homey and makes any space feel lived in. It’s an easy and affordable way to decorate, if you know what to look for.
To help inspire you, check out these farmhouse decor ideas and designs for 2020. You’ll be ahead of the decorating trends, so your home will look its best throughout the next few years.
This fun post was written for us by our friend Kacey Bradley from The Drifter Collective I joined in and added example photos and commentary. I want to thank Kacey for sharing her thoughts with the whole The Cottage Market Family!
If you love comfy cozy… drop by Liz Marie’s Blog for tons of DIYs… Ideas… Inspiration and more! I think these two little ones are pretty COMFY!
Ladder Drying Rack
Warm up your laundry room by hanging an antique ladder across the ceiling to dry clothes on. Paint it to match the appliances or walls or leave it in its vintage quality. You can also hang a ladder outside in a greenhouse or back porch if you need a place to hang and dry your own herbs.
This one from Pottery Barn has tons of charm and personality but if you are more into DIY…
You can make this beauty with the tutorial from DIY in PIX
Homemade Cookbook Stand
When you picture a farmhouse kitchen, you probably imagine lots of homecooked meals and baked goods to feed the people running in and out of your home every day. Farmhouses are busy places, so create the vibe of a busy and down to earth kitchen by making a homemade cookbook stand.
You can use old scrap wood to form the base. Finish with a coat of stain to make the board look aged and your stand will be ready to go when the time comes to pull out a dinner recipe.
If you love this Cookbook Holder… you are in luck… get the DIY over at The Learner Observer... the best part is is that you can make it out of scrap wood.
Doily Table Runner
Vintage decor and farmhouse interior decorating go hand in hand. That’s why if you make a doily table runner, it’ll look at home in any kitchen. Pick different sized doilies and lay them out on top of each other to create a longer runner. Glue or sew them together, depending on your preferred method of crafting. Doilies look great in any season, so you can place any seasonal candles or flowers on this table runner and nothing will look out of place.
Collect some beautiful doilies or purchase them new… then head on over to Craft Warehouse and she will show you how to put one together.
DIY Distressed Furniture
Another part of the farmhouse interior design concept is that everything is aged. Farmhouses are traditionally passed down through family generations, including the furniture.
That’s why distressed furniture fits a farmhouse theme perfectly, especially if you make it yourself. You can create your own distressed furniture with a little sandpaper and steel wool. Distress the paint on the furniture until it looks aged, so it has the feel of family furniture that’s been used by generations.
If you want to try distressing your own furniture… maybe you have an old piece… a Thrift Store item… a Garage Sale find… here is a great super simple tutorial over at Salvaged Situations.
Chicken Wire Decor Frame
You may be one of the many homeowners who don’t actually own a homestead. You don’t have the space to raise animals on your property, but you still want the farmhouse vibe.
A chicken wire frame can help you reach that interior design look. You don’t even need to buy one, since you can make it on your own with very little supplies. Cut the chicken wire to the right size and staple it to the back of the frame. Use clothespins to hang notes on the frame or hooks to hang wreaths.
Jamie from Anderson + Grant will show you how to make this beauty If you would enjoy some more Chicken Wire DIYS… come and check out this wonderful large collection of Chicken Wire DIYS at The Cottage Market!
Wicker Sphere String Lights
People hang string lights around patios and outdoor firepits because they create the perfect mood lighting for spending time with family outdoors. You can do the same and make them more farmhouse themed by adding wicker spheres to the lights.
Wicker spheres, also called rattan balls, can be bought at any craft store for just a few bucks. Slide the individual string lights into the spheres with a few inches between each sphere to create this instant decor. Use a little hot glue to hold the spheres in place for long term use if desired.
If you are not in a DIY mood… I found these over on Etsy! I think these would look really nice indoors also… use your imagination and I know you will find the picture perfect place for them! A little twinkle is a wonderful thing.
Nesting Box Storage
An easy way to make your home feel more like there’s a farm out back is to use a chicken nesting box as storage. Buy one that hasn’t been used, paint it with whatever color you’d like and place it in your front entryway. It can hold shoes, backpacks, dog supplies or whatever else you’d like to store in it.
How about this Chicken Nesting Box Masterpiece over at The Farmhouse 31 Instagram… you are going to want to follow this one! But what a fabulous storage unit and it could not be more unique!
