10 Crazy-Affordable Ideas for Chic Farmhouse Style
Wondering how to make your country home look just a bit more chic? Well, we've got just the (affordable!) tips for you. These simple ideas will turn your living space into a sophisticated country-meets-city sanctuary in no time. You can be miles away from skyscrapers, but still feel a super stylish vibe in every room of your home!
Refresh Your Desk
Take a wooden desk from old to new with the addition of a sleek silver frame. It can hold a mirror, so you can see yourself hard at work, or a picture of your best pals or furry friends. Mix and match with gold and white hues, so you can include all your favorite pictures. Solid color frames with bright pictures will make it hard for you to step away from such a cute work space.
Go for Gold
You have the big, beautiful wooden bed frame, and adding an unexpected yet fun feel is easier than ever. Grab a few metallic-hued throw pillows in silver, gold or both! It's a bold look that won't break the bank.
Don't be afraid of designs, especially the gorgeous Better Homes and Gardens Golden Cheetah, Luxurious Gold Foil Reversible Pillow, from $12.44.
Display Fave Dishes
Those rustic wooden shelves in the kitchen? They're just begging to be shown off! Display the dinnerware of your choice on top of them. The contrast of ceramic and wood is an ultra-modern look that will make you feel fancy in your kitchen every day. Don't forget to throw a coffee mug with a silly saying on it up there for good measure and a daily smile.
You know how you love the way that teal dress looks with those brown booties? Well, the same color scheme applies to your bathroom, too! Fill a pretty wooden box with an assortment of towels: teal, cream, navy, and white all look fabulous. Neatly roll them up to make you and your guests feel like you're enjoying a stay at a fancy hotel!
For added effect, pick a couple of fresh flowers outside and pop them in a small metallic vase. Then it's up to you to add "Stop and smell the flowers" to your morning routine.
The Better Homes and Gardens Extra Absorbent Bath Towel Collection will be a quick fave. From $2.75 - $9.89.
Show Off Linens
Your dinnerware isn't the only thing you can show off on those finished wooden shelves. Take some of your favorite linens in fun, modern colors and patterns and make them pop! Both your eyes and your fingertips will be drawn to them because they're as pretty as they are soft.
You can't go wrong with the Better Homes and Gardens 300 Thread Count Wrinkle Free Sheet Set, available in tons of pretty shades! From $17.83 - $44.88.
You didn't think your shelves were going to have all the fun, right? Pair those patterns with a comfy white duvet so you're even stylish while you sleep. If you're feeling extra bold, you can even match your sheets to a ceramic lamp, a perfect addition to a wooden nightstand for the ultimate fashionable farmhouse look.
Our bright idea would be to choose the Better Homes and Gardens Double Gourd Ceramic Lamp Base with CFL Bulb in navy. From $39.83.
Make Floors Flawless
You don't have to cover up that beautiful wooden floor – no way! But draw even more attention to it by adding a fun throw rug for a little extra contrast. A modern design helps to display the timelessness of the floors.
Throw Some Shade
A little lampshade can make a lot of difference! Choose a funky new hue for your shade; we love a rustic red that pairs well with both wooden surfaces and your favorite decorative couch pillows, for a warm and welcoming look.
The Better Homes and Gardens Chenille Swirls Decorative Pillow is the perfect addition to any couch, serving as both a real eye-catcher and guest-pleaser! From $11.97 - $12.44.
Dress Up Dining Spaces
Ready to really mix it up? Match an area rug to something unexpected in any room. For instance, your favorite dishtowels, a nearby planter, or even your go-to dishes. Why not? If you know they make plenty of appearances, go for it! Your sleek wooden dinner table will pop even more when sandwiched between bold colors, for a crisp and cool look.
For indoor and outdoor dining spaces, the Better Homes and Gardens Medallion Indoor/Outdoor Polypropylene Area Rug will get tons of compliments. From $49.00 - $190.01.
Don't Forget the Bar!
Whether you're living urban or suburban, you can never go wrong with a bar cart. We love this one that perfectly mixes the wood and metal vibes. And with your favorite bottles on top? Perfection. Because your drink of choice looks good in every room of your home. Tie a piece of hay or pretty ribbon around the bottles for some added flair.
