1. More than Design

Farmhouse style is about more than furniture and accessories. It's a lifestyle. It's a love of nature and simplicity and comfort. It embraces sustainability and invites personality. If that's the way you live your life, Farmhouse design is the perfect fit for you!

Use plenty of natural materials like wood, stone, brick, or concrete throughout the home design. Check out wood-look tile with hints of wear in the design to achieve the look with all the durability and ease of tile. Cellar Wood is an excellent choice for a clean, warm Farmhouse look.

2. More than Rustic

Achieving the Farmhouse look, especially today, is about far more than rustic details. Today's Farmhouse style embraces elements of the contemporary for a look and feel that's elegant with a rustic edge.

Neutral colors are classic for Farmhouse design but don't be afraid to incorporate more modern hues especially on the walls. White cabinets in the kitchen and stainless steel appliances give the look an update that freshens it. White subway tile is a great addition that adds some modern sensibility. Try Starting Line for a clean, classic backsplash or feature wall.

3. More than Details

Details go a long way to finish the Farmhouse look. A farmhouse sink can transport almost any design into the Farmhouse realm. Shiplap walls, painted wood furniture, lots of natural textures, and antique décor really make a difference.

Try using Cellar Wood wood-look tile in a herringbone pattern on the floor to add detail and uniqueness to the space. Use grey grout with white subway tile to give the space personality. A classic octagon and dot is a quick way to set the stage for Farmhouse style. Throw in a few antique baskets or your grandma's china in the glass-front cupboards and you'll complete the Farmhouse look.

Whether it's homey accents or rustic, reclaimed-look floors, your Farmhouse design is within reach. Take a page out of the Joanna Gaines' book and play with this homey feeling design that will make your house a home.
