What is the Farmhouse Design Style

With origins dating back to old European homesteads, the farmhouse style relies on natural resources and readily available materials that are used raw, handcrafted, and made to be handy and functional.

Farmhouse spaces are decorated with natural textures, course textiles, and wooden furniture upholstered in simple fabrics. Utensils, spices, fresh herbs, and pots and pans are all openly on display in large light-coloured kitchens that are lit by plenty of sunlight that pours in from windows set within wooden profiles.

Warm, inviting, tranquil, and cosy, these spaces emphasise the simplicity of a life connected with nature.
