I recently put out a survey (a big THANK YOU to everyone who has participated thus far), and it’s been incredibly helpful and interesting as I’ve been wading through the responses. The survey will be open through Wednesday, so make sure and take it and enter for a chance to win $10 to Target if you haven’t yet!
All that to say—incredibly helpful and interesting, and lots of great ideas from readers! I had some requests to showcase different styles, specifically the farmhouse style, so today I’m going to share with you three ways you can add farmhouse charm to your home. I plan on even more posts on different styles in the future—it will be a good challenge for me, and hopefully be a help to all of you who don’t have homes that match my mid-century eclectic aesthetic.
Rustic Wood Accents
The first sure-fire way to add country charm to your home is by incorporating reclaimed and rustic wood accents. Whether it’s through furniture, wall hangings, shelves, stools, or even shiplapped walls, adding some rustic wood to your home will help you create a farmhouse vibe.
Antique and thrift shops are the perfect spot to find authentic pieces, and many retail stores sell convincing rustic wood accents as well.

Metal touches, especially galvanized metal scream farmhouse. Try hanging some metal signs or storage, or mixing metal furniture into your home. Dining chairs, side tables, and shelving are all great ways to bring in some metal. By blending metal and softer touches like furs, throws, and soft pillows, you can keep a space from feeling too cold or hard.
Shop Metal Touches:
Integrating hand-made pottery and ceramics certainly add a more rustic feeling to your home, but for a truly farmhouse style, try displaying clean, white ceramics. When displayed in a collection on shelves or a buffet, white ceramics create a homey feeling.
Pitchers, bowls, serving platters, and other ceramic dishes can easily be found in antique and thrift shops, but if you’re looking for a new piece, see my selections below!
