Design Trend: Farmhouse Chic

Farmhouse design makes its way indoors!

Reclaimed wood, aged metals, and distressed details are showing up everywhere in interior design. Farmhouse Chic decor has a soft elegance with a rustic edge – perfect for dressing up a small cottage or a Craftsman Bungalow.

Sliding barn doors are a great way to save space, and typically work anywhere you might use a pocket door. You can find a brand new, ready-to-install barn door, or get crafty and salvage one. A salvaged door can be refinished or simply cleaned up for a distressed look, and mounted with new hardware, like wall-mount kits from Johnson Hardware.
