I have just been in heaven sharing all of these farmhouse styes with you. Have you picked a favorite yet? Well, you might want to hold off picking a favorite because we’re not done yet! I am so excited to share Meg’s interview on vintage farmhouse style!
Vintage Farmhouse Style
What is your Farmhouse style?
What are a few home decor items that help define your style?
Our farmhouse was built in the 1890s, and I love bringing in pieces of the past to highlight our home’s history. Old pieces can be found in every room of our house: vintage beds, old hutches, antique dressers in their original stained finish, old signs & paintings, and more.
Meg is taking care of this beautiful vintage bed for her grandma (how lucky is she?) but she has shared places you can find all kinds of vintage farmhouse bed ideas.
What home decor stores do you prefer to shop at?
Antique stores and Etsy are my favorite places to shop. You never know what treasures you’ll find!
What suggestions do you have for others just starting out with this style?
Decorate with what you love instead of worrying too much about trends. Find those vintage pieces that make your heart sing and mix them in with your newer decor.
I love how she styled this hutch into a linen closet. I would want to display those linens too!
What is your favorite part about decorating your home?
I love finding decor that makes me smile every time I see it. This can be anything from the bed frame passed down to me from my grandparents to the new clock I bought from Target. Living in an old house, I also love researching how this home would have been decorated in past eras. Despite white’s popularity in farmhouse style, we’ve found lots of evidence that our old farmhouse has always been a colorful place. We have plans to add many of those beautiful colors back into our home, and I’m very excited about it!
Meg’s entry has a fun pop of color and vintage farmhouse decor. Love those yellow rain boots.
What has been the hardest thing about decorating your home?
It can be hard to discern between what you like because it’s trendy and what you really love. It’s so easy to get caught up in the trends we see on a daily basis! I always ask myself why I like a certain design element: Is it because it reflects my personality, is it a good fit for our old house, or do I like it because it’s popular at the moment?
