3. Entryway Envy
When styling your home with a farmhouse feel, it’s important that the very first impression for your guests coincides with the rest of your house. A stylized entryway is ideal for inviting friends and family into your country-theme home. Start off with a rustic armoire, a wooden bench, and exposed coat hooks, as Liz did over at her blog, Love Grows Wild.

6. Country Cooking
This chic country kitchen is brought to you by Vintage Whites writer Vanessa. She revamped her kitchen to echo the perfect farmhouse feeling. With old-fashion appliances, an apron-front sink and a vintage kitchen block, it’s hard to say our favorite accent in this room. The raw-wood cabinets and cream-color walls definitely hit the nail on the head.

7. Dining in Farmhouse Style
Suzy had a lot of work to do to get her 20-year-old house to match her country-chic vision. Some paint, a plank wall, and stylish decor did most of the work to turn her dining room into a farmhouse beauty. The opposite wall hosts a pair of buffalo-check chairs while the adjoining wall holds a grid of botanical art. Fresh greenery exudes farmhouse style.

8. Vintage Home Office
The Little Glass Jar blog brings farmhouse inspiration into every room, no matter the size or use. Tired of the sports theme her husband gave the family office, blogger Ashley wanted to incorporate a more rustic feel when she started working from home. After a few paint colors and decor changes, she fell in love with her finished farmhouse-inspired workspace. Stained wood and old-fashion finishes are the perfect touches.
