American Modern Farmhouse – The ‘Must-Watch’ Trend This Autumn
It’s that time of year, the time to change from bright summer vibes to lush interiors that make long days and nights indoors away from the chill, exciting.
With TV shows such as “Home Town” and “Fixer-Upper” growing in popularity, it’s easy to see why the American Modern Farmhouse trend is going to be big this Autumn and Winter. The style is characterized by rustic textures, distressed and reclaimed statement pieces, neutral palettes, layering and groupings of faux greenery.
Let’s look at some easy ways you can achieve this look in your home.
Bring texture to your main living areas and think outside the box with your scatter cushions. Pair leather with light neutrals like linen, wool or plaid for maximum impact.
Top Sisal rugs with woolen rugs and create a layered effect that packs a textural punch, don’t be afraid to play around with different sizes and shapes to find the best fit for your space.
If you’re looking to increase your storage space, add a rustic floating shelf in reclaimed timber placed on black iron wall brackets or add a freestanding shelving unit to your living area.
Make a statement
Reclaimed and rustic statement pieces are not only great for the environment and inexpensive, they also suit this trend to a tee. Scour Gumtree for great pieces that will make the statement you’re after with a quick sand and lick of paint.
Industrial pieces also work well, search for iron and timber bar stools, metal bookshelves or concrete look coffee tables to achieve this look.
Scale is key here, with over-sized vintage signs, or artworks which make typography the feature with words such as “bakery” or “laundry” printed on linen coloured canvas or framed in timber.
Add some greenery
You don’t have to be the biggest green thumb to pull off this look, faux greenery has never looked more real or been more accessible as it is right now. To pull off this look, create clusters of the same leaf in groups of 3 to 5 and use simple, glass canisters to let the green be the focal point.
Features are a must
It’s go big or bust for this styling tip, install a feature wall to bring this look together. Use inexpensive materials that are easy to source like shiplap cladding or vinyl wallpaper – in particular, look at white brick wallpaper, it’s bang on trend.
