Hi Friends! If you have been hanging out with me for awhile you know that not only am I a designer, but also a busy mom of three little ones. So you know I don’t take on extra gigs without careful consideration. But when Remodelaholic asked me to be a monthly contributor for them, I jumped at the chance! They are the experts of how to DIY and decorate your house in easy, do-able, and affordable ways. Something we all can appreciate. And this month I decided to tackle the Farmhouse Family Room look for them. In fact, I narrowed it down to just 12 items you can use to design or update your Family Room to the beloved Farmhouse style.
But before I share the custom Farmhouse Mood Board I created for Remodelaholic, what makes a perfect Farmhouse Family Room? This Family Room design has all of the elements of the style made famous by Fixer Upper:
Here are some components to consider when you are either designing from scratch or want to just add in a few new pieces:
A light colored sofa (light gray, light tan, or white)
Casual, comfy pieces of furniture (such as slipcovers, rolled arms)
Rustic woods (side tables, coffee tables)
Natural rugs (jute, sisal, cotton)
Prints such as stripes, grainsack, nubby textures, dots, and neutral colors
Neutral color palette (grays, whites, creams, tans, and grieges)
Layering in Rustic or Found objects with a story behind them (old baskets, crates, bins)

While all of those beautiful rooms had the same elements to them, as you can see: they all have a total different personality to them! But where to start when you don’t know where to start? It can be really overwhelming to see beautiful images on your Pinterest scroll but not sure how to turn them into real life.
