Spring will be here before you know it and I bet you are ready for a little bit of a change… something fresh and fun! There are many ways of getting an updated look without any major renovations or purchases. A little change here… a touch of paint there… a fun furniture makeover and much more. Let’s explore some Simple Ways To Update Your Farmhouse Living Room.
Simple Ways To Update Your Farmhouse Living Room
Let’s start with Slipcovers. It is amazing how a clean… crisp slipcover can change up a room. When you use a neutral you can then add to it with whatever colors and patterns you love. They are relatively affordable and for those of you that love a challenge… there are many Slipcover Tutorials. This is Liz Marie’s gorgeous couch and she is sharing some of her favorite resources… so check them out. Now… let’s take a look at a few simple DIY Slipcover Ideas!
If you are truly ambitious you might want to check out Miss Mustard Seed’s 6 part Slipcover Tutorial. The end results… well a picture is worth a thousand words.
If you have an ottoman or find one in a Thrift Store… you can create a gorgeous ottoman like this Sincerely Marie did. It also doubles as a Coffee Table. What a wonderful look that might be exactly what your Living Room needed.
Stylizing Your Coffee Table
Now it’s time to look at a few Coffee Tables Stylized with Farmhouse Style. This is a great way to refresh your space. You can be really creative. If you want … you can even shop your house to put it together and not spend a dime. Let’s check out a few to inspire you.
Don’t you just love it. A simple basket… plus a plant… a vase with blooms for height… some book and a sphere… viola! It’s a great little formula that you can adapt your items to so very easily. You will find tons of Vignettes and other Ideas over at StoneGable.
Books are always a good idea! Maybe a sculpture… a touch of greenery… it’s magic. Hope this gives you tons of inspiration. It really is a stunning Modern Farmhouse Style created over at PureWow!
Come and take a close-up view of this beautiful space. I love how Lauren over at Bless’er House took a large basket and filled it with books and a plant and then added varying heights on either side. If you are shy about creating… take the base idea of one of these table designs and come up with different items of the same size and type. Trust me… you will find your style.
Now here is the easiest way to refresh your Sofa… add Throw Pillows! This simple technique can add pattern…texture…design… color and pizzaz all in one.
When I saw this little compilation at Studio McGee of tips on how to Stylize your Pillows… I had to share. First off… how awesome does that Sofa look! They give suggestions on how to choose the right size… patterns… textures and how to mix them up. Great inspiration awaits you. Then the fun part comes… you get to purchase or make some fabulous pillows. One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how everything that you don’t think will look great… looks perfect. Be totally inspired and treat your Sofa and Chairs to some new Throw Pillows.
Adding a Rug
A Rug can change the whole complexion of the room. With one single purchase you can unite everything in the room. Just look at this gorgeous Contemporary Farmhouse Space created by Joanna Gaines. Take note of the Pillow Styling on this Sofa…STUNNING!
This colorful rug over at Thistlewood Farms is the perfect example for pulling an entire room together. I love how it unites the stripes and the different patterns of the pillows and drapes. Total perfection. Treat your Living Room to the rug of your dreams and trust me… it will give it a refresh that you are going to adore! Take note of the Pillow Styling on this Sofa…STUNNING!
