There are many different interiors and exterior design styles out there. It can be hard to pick a favorite or even commit to one. Because the most fun is had when phasing in and out of each and every one of them.
Farmhouses will always be popular because the time when farmhouses were created for practical reasons rather than aesthetic reasons, is a time most people want to remember. So there’s no shame in choosing it time and time again.
And remember that a farmhouse doesn’t have to be all milk cans and white-washed wood. It can be anything that you want it to be. So create your own farmhouse by designing one of your dreams, not someone else’s.

The Ideal Farmhouse Kitchen By Sugar Maple Notes
You may be wondering why this white farmhouse kitchen is so special. After all, it looks so smooth and cohesive from afar. But it really is the details that that are so telling, so let’s take a closer look at this design.
A farmhouse kitchen may be the most important part of a farmhouse. Because so many memories are made in the kitchen. Traditionally, this is what made a farmhouse a farmhouse, and stylistically nothing has changed.
It all starts with wood floors which are the most popular floors in farmhouses. Then comes the white background which offsets the darker wood floors to create a wonderful marriage of tones and contrasts.
The geometric lights add a modern twist which is often added to a modern farmhouse. But this only works if you also add rustic pieces like old-fashioned signs and touches of old utensils on the countertops.
And of course, we can’t forget the apron sink. You can use any type of sink that you want in a farmhouse kitchen, but the most authentic type of sink is the apron sink which is seen in most farmhouses.
Layers Of Rustic Beauty By My Vintage Porch
This farmhouse brings all the best parts of farmhouses from all over the world and merges them to create a gorgeous white farmhouse that you can’t help but fall in love with. Try picking a favorite piece!
This white farmhouse takes inspiration from so many cultures and so many design styles all the while keeping the integrity of the original white farmhouse pure. The proof is in the amazing details.
The homeowner has taken classic milk cans and repurposed them with a marble set on top to bring class and a modern twist. They have also used doors as shelves, bulletins, and as decoration in general.
Mirrors open up the room and make it look bigger while fur throws bring a soft and shabby chic touch to an otherwise rustic living room. This home truly is a masterpiece to behold and it doesn’t end there.
The kitchen has granite countertops to make it appear high-end and the dining room has a vintage table to bring the room back down the earth. This union is perfectly balanced and looks absolutely perfect together.
And finally, they layered the rugs with a white rug underneath and a brighter rug on top to give a good background on the tile but adding a splash of color. This technique works every time if you use the right rugs.
Spacious Small Space By My Vintage Porch
My Vintage Porch strikes again with a wonderful white farmhouse that is all about making the most of a small space. Every single detail in this home is perfect and appropriately placed in this white farmhouse.
Everything in the home is pale and white or white-washed. When you view the living room you will notice the one light-colored though not white piece of furniture. It stands out yet fits in so well, which is magical.
Turn to the bathroom and you have saloon-style doors on the wardrobe which will hold towels and toiletries. Then we have the classic clawfoot freestanding tub which is a staple in many different farmhouse bathrooms.
Again, it isn’t the only option but it is the most authentic option. This clawfoot tub is extra special because it has a darker bronze color which is rare and often expensive. But if you find one on sale, then snag it quick!
Take a look outside and you will see the cleverest outdoor space you have ever seen. Not only is everything rustic and homey but if you look closely you will notice that some of the chairs are actually porch swings.
This idea works great for most homes though those with kids will need to be careful not to add anything breakable on the tables. Otherwise, go ahead and add some crocks and pitchers to make the most of the design.
