Family, friends, and spaces for gathering

Farmhouse decorating is all about using natural materials and textures to create a warm and cozy atmosphere. It often includes rustic touches, vintage accents, and woodsy prints and patterns.


In 2022, we’re embracing a variety of farmhouse decor styles to decorate the areas in your home where family and friends spend time. The warm, cozy atmosphere that farmhouse decor inspires is perfect for those who love rustic charm in their lives. 

Exposed rustic wood warms your spaces

Consider adding some farmhouse-style elements to your home with the ideas that follow.


Embrace rustic touches

It’s impossible to decorate farmhouse style without having rustic home decor pieces. Rustic touches can include anything from reclaimed wood furniture to metal accents and vintage-inspired prints and patterns. These pieces add a touch of character and history to the space while creating a farmhouse aesthetic.

An old table offers character

Adding distressed furniture like a weathered coffee table or vintage china hutch to your dining room can add the rustic touches needed to perfect a farmhouse-style home. Family heirlooms are perfect for this, as they already have that well-loved feeling that is so essential in rustic decorating.


Traditional farmhouse pieces like original table clocks, old scales, or antique cameras work well to give your home a touch of rustic styling. Place these pieces on top of your vintage furniture to get the perfect farmhouse style combination.

Character and texture brought inside

2022 is the year exposed wood beams make a comeback! Exposed wood beams are the granddad of vintage elements, giving your home the ultimate farmhouse look. If your home is a fixer-upper then adding exposed beams is a no-brainer however, for most of us, we must find other ways to get the accents we desire.


Visualize vintage accents

Open shelving is a great way to add vintage accents to your home without breaking the bank. There are many different ways to style open shelves, but adding common farmhouse elements is a must. 

Shelving is more than functional

You can find vintage pieces like plates, cups, and glasses at garage sales or thrift stores for next to nothing and use them to decorate your open shelves. Antique books, vases, and jars are also perfect for this purpose. Simply placing these items on your open shelves will give your home the vintage feel you’re looking for.


Hardware is also a great way to add vintage accents to your home. Vintage cabinet knobs, drawer pulls, and door handles can be found at flea markets or online stores and add a touch of character to any cabinet or furniture piece.


Scatter plants and flowers

Adding plants and flowers to your home is a must in any farmhouse-style decor. Not only do they add life and color to the space, but they also provide a natural and cozy atmosphere. You can add plants and flowers to your home in many different ways. The most popular way is by using potted plants, which can be placed anywhere in the home.

Don't overlook flowers and plants, even if they are fake

You can also use fresh flowers in vases or even dried flowers in Mason jars to decorate your shelves, tables, and countertops. Adding colorful flowers and plants in wire baskets also adds a touch of farmhouse style to any room.


If you’re not into flowers or plants, then consider adding trees and branches instead. A large tree in your front yard or a few branches in a vase on your kitchen island will add the natural elements you need for a perfect farmhouse feel in your living spaces.
