Home Decor Tips and Style Guide

  • How to Pick Out a Vintage Chandelier

    A chandelier is more than a piece of lighting–it is a simple, beautiful way to change the atmosphere of your entire space. When you are selecting a chandelier for your living room, dining room, or foyer, you should consider the following: the style of your space, the height of your ceiling, and the amount of light you want the chandelier to emit. The right chandelier will flatter your vintage home décor while fitting into your room perfectly and bathing it in the perfect amount of light.

    When hanging your chandelier, you want to center it over your table as opposed to hanging it in the center of the room itself. Also, you should choose a chandelier which matches your home’s architectural style. You can choose more modern lighting styles, but selecting a fixture which matches your vintage style home makes it less likely that you will need to replace it every time your style preferences change. Remember that you can always add additional lighting (floor lamps, recessed lighting, etc.) if your dream chandelier simply does not give off enough light. And finally, do not worry that large spaces will always require large fixtures. Added style can make up for size. A more ornate or interesting-looking chandelier can appear larger than a simpler piece of a similar size. Here are some different vintage chandelier suggestions to demonstrate the beauty and variety that you can find in our rustic lighting selections:

  • Transforming Your Kitchen with Rustic Kitchen Decor

    Your kitchen should be one of the warmest, most welcoming rooms in your home. It is where you cook for your friends, enjoy wine with your guests, and spend time with your family during the holidays. As one of your home’s most frequently used spaces, your kitchen provides a unique opportunity to express yourself through home decor. From vintage farm signs to rustic kitchen decor, you can add personal touches to your cooking space to give it a more pleasant atmosphere everyone will love.

    No matter the size of your kitchen, you can save time and space by incorporating usable pieces into your decor. Take, for example, this Rustic Kitchen Cupboard with Windowpane Door.

  • How to Incorporate Rustic Shabby Chic in Your Home

    afh hero

     

    They say that everything old becomes new again, and that adage proves quite true with home decor. Shabby chic decor, in particular, is having quite a moment, as retro styles are popping up everywhere from furniture to lighting. Vintage style home decor has a rustic feel which suits every type of home style, from French cottage to American farmhouse. Shabby chic is one of the most popular home styles due to its versatility and adaptability. In practical terms, this means that you can incorporate shabby chic pieces into your home without needing to renovate or replace your existing decor. This flexibility makes shabby chic the decor preference for design professionals and amateurs alike, as it makes every home look its best. If you are interested in the shabby chic style but are unsure where to start, here are some suggestions as to how to incorporate this gorgeous style into any space in your home.

     

    Hallway/Entrance: When friends, family, and guests enter your home, which area greets them first? Your hallways and entrance are sometimes overlooked, though they definitely should not be. You can make your hallway shabby chic simply by updating your decor or lighting choices. There are a number of items which would make incredibly beautiful rustic hallway decor, such as an antique clothes rack, or a vintage mirror. Antique Farmhouse carries a variety of shabby chic hallway decor options which will give your home that vintage feel from the moment you step in the door.

     

    Living Room: Looking to create a shabby chic living room? With Antique Farmhouse, creating your own farmhouse living room is a breeze. Try some metal furniture, a wine cart, or even a few vintage picture frames to create a one-of-a-kind look for one of the most-used rooms in your home.

     

    Kitchen: Your kitchen should always be one of the warmest and most inviting rooms in your home. It is more than just the place where we prepare our meals – it is where we gather with family, drink our morning coffee, or simply have a glass of wine to reflect on our day. Your kitchen is also one of the most enjoyable spaces in your home when it comes to choosing decor, as the best pieces serve double duty as both fun and functional. We carry rustic kitchen decor and farmhouse kitchen decor to bring a true touch of personalization to your space.

     

    Dining: Next to the kitchen, your dining room is likely where you spend the most time entertaining. It is the perfect spot for showing off your shabby chic style. With farmhouse dining decor and rustic dining decor from Antique Farmhouse, you can experience shabby chic dining in style. Before your next dinner party, update your dining room with rustic pieces from Antique Farmhouse.

     

    Bedroom: Guest bedrooms are one of the most enjoyable locations to decorate in your home. But what about your master bedroom? Homeowners sometimes neglect outfitting their master bedroom in a shabby chic style because it is often the room least likely to be seen by guests. But when it comes to your home, you will likely spend more time there than anyone else. And much of the time spent at home is in your bedroom, so you should use that space to display your personal style. With simple accent furniture and other rustic bedroom decor, you can create an individual space you will love to come home to each night. Creating a shabby chic bedroom is simple, with furniture, lighting, and accessories from Antique Farmhouse. Our farmhouse bedroom decor is second to none, and is sure to help you create one of the most relaxing rooms in your home. Your bedroom is your primary living space – should you not feel most comfortable there?

     

    Bathroom: When decorating your home, do not forget about your bathroom. We carry a great selection of farmhouse bathroom decor to create a comfortable space which complements the rest of your home. Incorporating rustic bathroom decor in your home is simple, with knickknacks and decorative racks and hooks which are perfect for small spaces.

     

    Lighting: You may be surprised what a big difference a lighting change can have on your home. Lighting does more than brighten your living space – it can bring personality and a familiar atmosphere to your living room, dining room, kitchen, or foyer. Choose from our shabby chic lighting and farmhouse lighting styles. We carry everything from desk lamps to chandeliers, giving you a wide variety of options for brightening up any space.

     

    Signs: Signs are one of our favorite ways to include shabby chic styling in a home or garden. We carry vintage signs, rustic signs for your porch, farm signs for your kitchen or living room, and shabby chic signs to cover most any space. Take a look at our collection of farmhouse signs which will personalize your space and give your home a unique look.

     

    Outdoor: A shabby chic home is not limited to the four walls of the home itself. Your outdoor spaces are some of the best locations for incorporating gorgeous decor styles into your space. Think iron fountains and farmhouse patio decor to welcome your family and guests. Our farmhouse outdoor decor selections are chosen to coordinate with our incredible shabby chic pieces for the rest of your home, giving you a lovely theme that covers the entirety of your property.

     

    Creating a shabby chic home is simple with the right furniture, lighting, and decor from Antique Farmhouse.

  • Trend Watch: Repurposed Kitchen Utensils for Decor

    Decorating your home without breaking the bank requires finding the perfect combination of trendy pieces and timeless classics. We are happy to say that one of the newest kitchen decor trends is one which is both useful and fashionable–the incorporation of repurposed kitchen utensils as decorative pieces. This trend is a great way to reuse the utensil styles that have been featured in our homes for generations in a way that simply looks great. Here are some great ideas for incorporating repurposed kitchen utensil items into your home’s decor:

    Baskets:

    Whether made of wood, metal, or stoneware, we simply cannot get enough of baskets and basket-styled decor. That’s because baskets serve a wonderful double duty: they are a great way to store a number of items while adding to the overall design aesthetic of your home. Plus, baskets can be used year-round, and flatter a variety of other decorative pieces in your home, including shabby chic decor and, of course, farmhouse decor. You can use metal and wire baskets to store everything from fresh fruit to stationery items. They are a simple style which is both attractive yet unassuming, making them wonderful choices for any living space. Virtually any type of basket can be converted into a decorative piece. Here are some suggestions to get you started:

    These Stoneware Berry Baskets are a simple way to add some color to any space. They are perfect for displaying and serving fruit, and would make a wonderful addition to any breakfast table. These lovely little baskets are reminiscent of the simple strawberry baskets used at farmer’s markets, and are a perfect example of form and function coming together to create a simple, yet wonderful, piece of decor.

    If you prefer metal over stoneware, then this set of Metal Berry Baskets are a gorgeous alternative. Like all baskets, they can be used to hold any number of items, or they also make wonderful display pieces on their own. Place them anywhere you need some additional storage options, or where you know they will be seen and enjoyed. The simple brushed metal coordinates well with any home’s decor, and they are a simple storage solution that helps to beautify your home.

    Cheese Boards and Other Kitchen Tools:

    Baskets are a great decorative tool, but in most cases they will use some of your counter space. If your counter space is too limited for additional decor, or if you are in need of something to spruce up your kitchen walls, then there are a number of other ways that you can use kitchen implements as decorative pieces. Cheese boards, for example, are attractive, simple choices for any style of home.

    These Marble and Mango Wood Cheese Boards are fully functional but also serve as gorgeous decor, as they can be hung by the attached leather strap when they are not in use. They feature a great combination of wood and marble to give them a unique look. And because they are not taking up any room on your counters or in your cabinets, you do not have to worry about running out of space. The boards come in one of each color, and are perfect for serving any number of cheeses. They truly are the perfect tool for both serving and adding additional style to your kitchen space.

    Another great design idea is to use old plates, saucers, and teacups in new ways. An attractive old plate, for example, can be hung on the wall to create a striking piece of decor. You can also use teacups for storage options, such as for holding change or jewelry. Allow yourself to be creative with your old kitchen tools, as they are a great way to flex your creative muscles without spending a fortune.

At Antique Farmhouse, we know the importance of making your home your own. This is why home decor is so important–it is how we present ourselves to our friends and other guests. With all of the time that we spend in our homes, they should be the place where we are most comfortable and able to be ourselves.

    If you are looking for decor which is attractive yet not overpowering, then repurposing kitchen utensils is a great option. Whether you create your own pieces from items in your home or purchase a multifunctional decor product from one of our collections, you can rest assured that your home will have a comfortable, lived-in look with repurposed kitchen utensil decor.

  • Metal - A Timeless Material

    For centuries, humans have used metal for everything from cooking utensils to jewelry to building construction. The resilience and versatility of this material has made it the first choice for those looking for durable, well-constructed products which will serve them well in their everyday lives. Our reliance upon metal has only grown with time, as craftsmen become even more skilled in using its malleability to our advantage, resulting in items which are both useful and beautiful.

    When it comes to home decor, selecting items crafted from metal continues to be a solid choice. In fact, the majority of items in our popular Farmhouse Charm Collection are crafted either entirely or partially from metal components, giving you a wide variety of metal items from which to choose. The collection includes metal drying racks which are both fun and functional, as well as vintage metal signs to give your home a personalized style.

    metal-and-wood-table-on-casters-1

    If you prefer a more industrial look, check out our Elements of Style Collection, which playfully integrates components of nature with vintage pieces to create a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere in your living space. It includes everything from small items such as bucket planters to larger furniture pieces, all intended to demonstrate the beauty and versatility of using metal in your home.

    The Elements of Style Collection also includes one of our most popular items, our Wine Barrel Chandelier. This chandelier uses six wine barrel slats combined with a metal ring to form a gorgeous central lighting piece for your kitchen, dining room, or foyer. It throws off just the right amount of light for everything from dining with your family to simply opening your mail.

    If comfort is your ultimate goal, then you will find everything you need in our Cozy Corner Collection. It features both metal and non-metal items sure to flatter every room in your home. This beautiful assortment of home decor combines feminine flair with old world style to create a warm, relaxing atmosphere in your office or living space.

    When it comes to using metal in your home decor, the key is to strike the right balance between metal and non-metal materials, as well as to incorporate a variety of metal and finish types. Generally speaking, you can never have “too much” metal decor in your space, but your pieces will look more suited to your space if they are offset with softer materials. Also, combining metal with wood is always a good approach, and this combination is incorporated in a number of our featured pieces, from seating to chandeliers to wall decor. As far as color schemes, metal most often looks its best when used in neutral palettes including white, grey, and beige. Do not be afraid to start small and see how you like the look of metal in your home. You can always add more pieces if you are pleased with the results–and we are sure you will be!

    Metal decor is not just for the inside of your home–you should take a look at our incredible metal items for your garden as well! This sweet-natured feature is a treat for both your eyes and your ears, as the birds’ beaks open and close with the flowing water. Easy to install, it brings out the best in your outdoor space. This water fountain is just one of the many metal-based water features we offer at Antique Farmhouse. We pride ourselves on providing you with all of the decor selections you need for your home, both indoors and out.

  • Cozy Up Buttercup - Best Materials for the Chilly Season

    As the weather becomes chilly, we tend to find ourselves spending more time indoors. Whether we are snuggling up in our beds or gathering around the fireplace with our families, winter is a perfect time to enjoy time in our homes with our loved ones. And when it comes to spending time warming up at home, nothing is more useful than a soft, comfortable blanket. Blankets come in a number of colors, styles, and, most importantly, fabrics. Choosing the right fabric can be the difference between freezing, resting comfortably, and overheating. The best way to avoid overheating is to use blankets made of natural fiber materials such as cotton, linen, wool, or silk, which will all wick moisture away while keeping you warm.

    Blankets are a great choice for home decor pieces, and not only because of the warmth that they provide. When you have a beautiful blanket or throw, you do not need to keep it in a closet. You can also display it, whether over a decorative hanging bar or simply thrown over a piece of furniture for a more casual look. Plus, keeping blankets out around your home makes them more easily accessible when the temperatures drop. The best home decor items are the ones which are both attractive and useful, and 100% cotton blankets fit the bill perfectly. When you find a blanket which both flatters your home and warms your guests, the benefits cannot be overstated. That is why the designers at Antique Farmhouse are proud to bring you attractive blankets which are crafted from everyone’s favorite fabric: cotton.

    The Joys of Cotton

    Cotton is one of the primary clothing and home textile fabrics in the world. The cotton fiber itself comes from the seed pod of the cotton plant, and cotton is said to “breathe,” due to the fact that it absorbs and releases perspiration and other moisture quickly. This makes cotton the perfect choice for clothing and, of course, blankets and quilts. When you choose a blanket made of cotton, you are ensuring that you and your loved ones will be kept comfortably warm.

    If you want to give your bedroom or guest room a makeover, this Pearl White Quilt Set is a wonderful choice. It features a 100% cotton quilt filled with polyester batting to keep it full and soft on your skin, without becoming too warm. It is available in a number of sizes and comes with matching shams to complete the look. The simple white color is sure to coordinate with any number of bedroom accessories and wall decor.

    If you are looking for something a little simpler, this Plaid Woven Cotton Throw makes a beautiful addition to any room. It features solid colors of red, green, and navy in a gorgeous plaid pattern. It is made from 100% cotton and is sure to keep you warm and comfortable. Use it in a bedroom for added warmth, or display it in a front or living room for some added comfort when watching television or reading a book.

     

    Another great choice is our Brown and Blue Plaid Cotton Blanket. It is also 100% cotton and is a natural-shaded hue sure to blend well with any furniture or home decor. It is a simple yet wonderful choice as a throw blanket or an addition to a guest or sitting room. Drape it over a couch or chair for colder nights, or toss it in a backpack for use during a picnic or to keep you warm at a baseball game.

    When it comes to choosing the perfect blankets and quilts for your home, cotton and other natural materials should be your top choices. Cotton is durable, meaning that you can rely on it to keep its shape for years to come. Cotton withstands ironing well, meaning that you can always keep it looking great. Cotton throws and blankets make a gorgeous addition to any living space, and Antique Farmhouse is proud to bring you a number of cotton items from around the world. Check out our incredible selections today!

    It has been said that having an office in your home can be either a blessing or a curse–or both.
