What is Farmhouse Style?

Farmhouse style is a mix of materials like wood and galvanized steel and other natural textures. Oftentimes materials are rustic and worn. You'll often see cream paired with other neutrals plus patterns like buffalo plaid. Farmhouse style often incorporates flea market and thrift store finds into the mix.

If you're a HGTV fan, like me, and you loved to watch Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna, then you may be a fan of the farmhouse style. Chip and Joanna showcased this style on their show and helped make it one of the most popular home styles today.

Modern Farmhouse Dining Room

A modern farmhouse style has the same natural textures and colors as a typical farmhouse style and the furniture has clean modern lines. If this sounds exactly like what you're looking for then check out these beautiful modern farmhouse dining rooms below and get inspired to re-create the look in your home.

Country Farmhouse Dining

When I think of country farmhouse style, I think of rustic furniture that's natural and often not a perfect set. It may be furniture that are flea market finds or has been passed down in the family.

You'll often see chairs that don’t match in a country dining set. If you love this charming country farmhouse style, then check out these pretty dining rooms below to get some great ideas to create the look in your home.
