Shiplap is a timeless farmhouse accent, but this version achieves the look using lattice. The converging lines add dimension to the whitewashed wall without overwhelming it. A horse drawing, wicker basket, and rustic galvanized bucket provide classic country charm. Learn how to install your own shiplap wall to accent your farmhouse decor.
Charming Farmhouse Character
General store or farmhouse kitchen? Decorated with antique wall art, such as marquee letters, a chalkboard, and a salvaged door from a general store, it’s no wonder this room blurs the line. Fill the shelves of a pantry with monochromatic accents, such as vintage pitchers and containers. You can even use one of our pretty printables to help label them.
Plaid Accent Wall
This buffalo check pattern might look like wallpaper, but it’s hand-painted. Re-create it using white paint and an analogous color scheme. Carry the country theme throughout with rustic bathroom wall decor, such as the studded tray and potted plants. Repurpose old floorboards by restaining and hanging them as a floating shelf.

Take a note from historical schoolhouses and use a chalkboard framed in salvaged barnwood as farmhouse wall art. This one takes center stage above an entryway console table and is lit by industrial-style sconces. Our DIY calligraphy tips will make your chalk memo sweet.
We can’t decide which steals the show on this modern farmhouse mantel more—the funky cardboard elephant or the glamorous golden ram. Either way, we love the playful nods to animals in this modern farmhouse wall decor. Fill any blank spaces with a cascading plant or other natural elements.

Classic Farmhouse Accents
Polish those antique trays. They’re about to serve some serious style. This farmhouse kitchen display features secondhand serving trays in an assortment of shapes and metals. Stacked vertically on a shiplap wall (the farmhouse signature you can install in a weekend) they draw the eyes back to visually expand the kitchen. Don’t have any trays on hand? Hunt for them at your local thrift store or garage sale.
Modern Farmhouse Twist
Contemporary meets rustic when a glitzy chandelier pairs with industrial accents in this nook-turned-office. Mint-color details and a subway tile backsplash offer modern touches; a DIY shelf built with pipe makes interesting wall decor.

Coastal farmhouse style often features soothing ocean shades, crisp whites, and golden accents. Beyond the powder blue pocket door to this powder room, soft hues continue in a scenic gold-framed oil painting. Reclaimed elements, like the wall sconce and faucet, add major farmhouse vibes. Hanging a metal mirror using rope rounds out the rustic wall decor.
Metal and wood are a favorite farmhouse pairing. Mix the two to bring interesting contrast to a living room or foyer. This farmhouse gallery wall blends sleek golden and wood frames with a few white frames for balance.
