How to Decorate Farmhouse Style

Do you see pictures on Pinterest and wish you knew where they found the items to decorate that amazing farm house style? While there are many vendors and options out in the world, I have put together one way to achieve how to decorate a chic farmhouse style dining room ideas. 

This is one of many of the How to Decorate series where I will pull an inspirational picture of a room and put together a design board to show you how you can decorate it just like a pro. 

As I wrote in my 10 Need to know Interior Design Trends for 2022 Blog, that farmhouse style is going to trend strong. Don’t miss out of those current styles in that blog. You must read that post after you read this. 

I must then, first, kick off this series with the Farm house Chic Style. And I am showing you how to design a chic farmhouse style dining room. To pull this look together, I have been inspired by Vintage French style, Farm House style, and a bit of Feminine Chic.

1. Design Board

Back in the early 2000’s in design school, at Interior Designer’s Institute in Newport Beach, CA, I remember the painstaking process of buying foam core, mattes, and making picture boxes to insert my chosen materials in them for my design. As a college student, I was forced to DIY my boards, and remember driving to the CAD printer and getting my floor plans to place on the boards, and printing out high gloss photos of the furniture I had selected. I am so thankful for new graphic design programs that allow me to do all of that digitally now and make it into a beautiful work of art that my fingers could never quite do with the matte boards.

Zentique Abstract Paper Wall Art
House of Hampton Double Tulip Art 

Wall Art – You may choose a textured abstract like this if you have a small wall, two stacked on top of each other. And or you may wish to do a large wall art to fill a big wall. The size will vary but approximately 47″ w x 35″ h. Art is such a personal choice, you could choose a botanical, a sepia field of grass, or a beautiful nature photo you took on one of your vacations. 

Wall paper on wall above wainscoting is a beautiful design detail on the wall. Saves you paper and breaks up the business of the pattern. Paper from Birch Lane

Wallpaper – And if you wish to add more movement and color. Adding botanical wallpaper to a focal point wall would bring life and depth to the space. When done tastefully, adding wallpaper adds a scale of sophistication and attention to detail that elevates your farm house style room’s decor into chic. Additionally installing wainscoting to the bottom half of your wall and installing wallpaper on the top elevates a home from a simple farm house style to a polished manor.

The wall coverings I found that would be up to date, gorgeous! and add a Chic spin to the Farmhouse Style are:

Plants: Don’t forget to bring in plants to this gorgeous look!

A Fiddle Leaf Fig is a beautifully clean and bold indoor tree that thrives in warm and humid climates. You can find one at your local garden store, or check out Bloomscape.

Ficus Danielle is another beauty that reminds one of a chic topiary of Versaille, yet is easier to maintain.

And a bowl of white roses in an arrangement with hydrangeas puts the elegance over the top in the center of your dining table. These can be fresh from your garden, or a silk arrangement

No matter living or silk, there is no doubt that plants bring your space an elevated sense of tranquility and liveliness.
