Nothing says "come relax" like a thickly cushioned chair in the corner of the living room, and this little spot gets it right.

Farmhouse style is known for being warm and welcoming with its soothing color palette and airy tone. However, to create an even more welcoming farmhouse space, look for ways to create a cozier space. High pile shag rugs, fluffy pillows, and wool blankets all serve as beautiful visual accents and provide comfort that will not go unappreciated.

Small Spaces

The room's color palette goes a long way in making the room feel larger or smaller, but there is another crucial element to consider: lighting. The lights that you place in your room will serve to brighten the room and create the illusion of more space. One other trick to make a small living room feel larger is to use mirrors. A well placed mirror in a corner or on a wall can reflect light further throughout the room and make the room feel larger than it actually is.

Focal Points

No matter what room you're decorating, it should have a natural focal point that the eye is drawn towards. Farmhouse living rooms like this one often highlight a fireplace or mantle as a natural accent, since fireplaces were a large part of life in old-time farmhouses. While you can line up your mantle with many different decorations and accessories, you can also show restraint and allow the fireplace's natural architecture and craftsmanship to shine as the star of the room.

Industrial Farmhouse

Industrial farmhouse style is one of the most popular options for small living rooms, loft living rooms, and apartment life. Follow in this room's example by incorporating metal into the room through the coffee table, iron trays, metallic seats, and fans. The room itself can also lean into the aesthetic with moody greys and concrete floors. If the style is leaning too heavily in an industrial style, add farmhouse decor like animal hide, skulls, and "edgier" decorations to blend farmhouse style with industrial sensibilities.

Coastal Farmhouse

Even though coastal style and farmhouse style are based on completely different settings, these two aesthetics have a lot in common. Both styles love warm, neutral tones and often decorate the room with wood, plants, and natural materials. By leaning heavily into the coastal colors with farmhouse accents and decorations, you can easily blend your two favorite styles in one space.


Even if the living room does have a fireplace, you may have grander architecture to highlight as a primary focal point. Remember the perspectives you will view the room from: from this standpoint, the lavishly decorated windows will serve as the obvious focal point. However, from the adjacent dining room, the fireplace will be in the main line of sight. Perspective is an important thing in both life and design!

DTR (Defining The Room)

Open concept layouts are becoming more popular thanks to their great design potential and socializing possibilities. In order to define specific spaces in the room for a living room and dining room, use a rug in each space. The rugs should have some style similarities since they are in a common room, but that can be as simple as using coordinating color schemes or similar patterns.


Your home's architecture plays a big part in defining the room's overarching style. The grey and beige stones that dominate this room are intentionally paired with warm brown accents in the built-ins, leather seats, and wood accents. Whenever your room already has such stunning appeal, use these features to fully establish your style and define the room's aesthetic.

Consistent style is often created through the smallest, most subtle accents in the room. Modern spaces frequently use similar shapes and structures throughout the room's furniture, lighting fixtures, and decorations to create a cohesive style. In this case, the room uses round decor in the coffee table accents, vases, desk decor, and big fixtures like the chandelier and curved furniture. Consider how you can create a consistent, coordinating style through all your room's features to define your modern farmhouse living room.


Seating options abound in this classy farmhouse family room. Between the two sofas, two side chairs, and tufted ottoman, there are plenty of ways to be a part of the conversation. However, additional seating is also scattered throughout the room with the piano bench and two stools by the floral painting. Even if these seats are not used as a part of daily life, they further cement this room as a great social space.

Farmhouse Findings

Cowhide prints and hides are prominent accents in farmhouse style homes. The only accent that is even more popular in these settings is leather. Leather chairs, leather sofas, leather rugs, and leather decor can all be used to reinforce a farmhouse style. The natural imperfections of leather perfectly complement farmhouse style and define the room as more authentic and homey with those features and warm colors.

Subtle Imagery

One of the most popular accents for farmhouse style living rooms is candles. Candles can be used as decorative wall sconces, table accents, candelabra chandeliers, or sprinkled in the room's wall art. Classic and subtle motifs like these do not have to dominate the room's design; in fact, this room shows how these elements can be subtly incorporated to reinforce the room's style without stealing the show.

Wonderous Wood

Wood is a key part of modern farmhouse style, since it presents a very natural texture and warm tones. Wood panelled ceilings or ceilings with wood beams are iconic features that can shine in modern farmhouse, rustic farmhouse, and coastal farmhouse styles. If your home features such a gorgeous architectural feature, highlight it through proper cleaning and finishing to convey your farmhouse aesthetic.
