10 Farmhouse Living Room Decorating Ideas
Are you looking for farmhouse living room design ideas? Then you’re in the right place! Today I’ll take you through some of the best farmhouse design ideas to take your living room from old and tired to country and cozy in record time. Sound good? Then let’s get down to business, shall we?
Using Old Wood
Mixing In Metal
Lighting Is Key
Shabby Really Is Chic
Whenever you think ‘farmhouse colors’, you probably think white and brown, right? And we usually see this in the materials that are used and the paints on the wall. White walls are common, and wood is the most used material in farmhouse decor, so make sure you pick up those colors in the furnishings and accessories you choose to match. That doesn’t mean you can’t have pops of color – but keep them muted. Pastels are in right now, so by including these in your farmhouse-style living room, you’ll be able to tick two big design trend boxes off right away.
I mentioned wood, and without being ageist, the older the better! The more rustic the wood used in farmhouse design, the better the finished look will be. Consider shopping at thrift stores or heading to antique stores that sell older furniture. Even if you choose an old wooden coffee table or just one spindly wooden chair, the way it’ll change your room will be massive. Failing old wood, at least opt for natural woods that are newer, but have been deliberately aged.
Where possible, pick up accessories that have been made of galvanized metal. The reason this is so important is that galvanized metal (steel especially) looks old and almost rusty, without actually being rusty. Rust isn’t a good look if it isn’t deliberate, but by purchasing a few galvanized steel accessories (or even using it for statement shelving sparingly) you’ll be able to create the feeling of an aged living space, but in a really fun, modern way.
Repeat after me: ‘Country comforts are key!’. That’s right, you need to look out for country pillows, throws, blankets, rugs. These things all soften your living room. When wood and white walls are your baseline, you need to inject comfort into the home, and these comfort accessories are all perfect for doing just that. In terms of colors, think pastels again, or even off-whites and creams, or different shades of brown to the most used wood in your room. The key is contrast here.
Sure, comfort is key, and so is contrast, but lighting is also. (There’s a lot of key design trends in farmhouse decor, what can I tell you). For lighting, you want the fittings to look vintage, so try to find lampshades etc, that look a little aged or vintage in style. But it isn’t just the way your lighting looks that’s important, it’s the way it makes the space feel. Opt for bulbs that emit a warm yellow glow, as opposed to a more modern white light. It’ll make the place cozier and fit with the farmhouse feel much better.
Shabby chic really is the epitome of farmhouse interior design. I’ve been touching on it all the way through, but it deserves an honorable mention in its own right. To achieve a shabby chic look, you have to pick furniture and soft furnishings that look a little rough around the edges. Not dirty, or damaged, or destroyed – just worn, aged, timeless. It’s easy to get shabby chic wrong and make the place look a mess, but by aiming for rustic and stylish, you won’t go far wrong.
For those that are unfamiliar with shiplap, it’s basically a really affordable way of lining your walls with wooden boards to create a cladding. It’s common on the exterior of many farmhouse homes, but it works just as well indoors, too. Opt for white shiplap if you’re going to do the entire room, but if you’re just thinking of a shiplap feature wall, then it can be a good idea to opt for natural wood, so long as it’s darker. You should handle light wood shiplap with care, because you risk making your living room look like a Swiss sauna…
Clutter doesn’t always mean messy. Look at any farmhouse’s interior design, and you’ll see a LOT of accessories. Pictures on the wall, flowers in vases, soft furnishings galore, even the odd candle or two on the coffee table. The point is, you can make the space feel homely and lived in. Gone are the days of crisp, clean lines, and clutter hidden away. We don’t want show homes any more; we want comfort. And cozy clutter is great for doing that.
Following on from the idea that hiding things away doesn’t really fit with farmhouse interior design, consider open shelving. Specifically, open wood shelving. You can even do a DIY project here with an old piece of wood. Something thick and sturdy enough to support your odds and ends, maybe even some books. This sort of statement shelving is big in farmhouses, so do your best to recreate it at home. We know now that shelves can act as decor, not just storage solutions, so make it work for you in your living room!
And finally, vintage furniture. Yes, this comes into the shabby chic/rustic points from earlier, but when selecting furniture, don’t just choose any old furniture. What you really want are for the colors and design of the statement pieces (your couch, armchairs, etc) to fit the theme. Creams, off whites, browns – they’ll all work in terms of color, but think about their lines too. Curves soften a space, which is exactly what you’ll need in a farmhouse living room, so opt for furniture with curves that draw the eye and make the space more comfortable.

Farmhouse designs are rustic and incorporate antiques and country themes. With the right wood furniture, colors like white and brown, and industrial styles, you can create a modern living room in a farmhouse theme.
Farmhouse Living Room Colors
The main colors you will find include white, brown, and gray. There will be light and dark variations on these colors, but they are the main farmhouse colors you find in any room. For additional colors, some other options will includes blue shades and red shades around each room as well.
