Farmhouse Industrial Decorating Ideas ~
In the third part of the Pottery Barn Fall Collection Series, I thought I’d cover their Farmhouse Industrial decorating ideas and decor. If you are just starting on this post, the Fall Collection begins with Vintage Decorating, and then onto Relaxed Rustic Design and Coastal Design Ideas.
Pottery Barn’s Farmhouse Industrial takes on a cheerful approach to decorating and is all about the details – rustic woods and hard-working metals. You don’t have to live in the country to create that welcoming, lived-in feeling.
The style starts with fresh whites, distressed wood and industrial elements, then layers on classic checks and stripes. The Farmhouse Industrial look is family-friendly, super comfortable, and where rustic meets modern. Design elements such as a barn door on a wrought iron rod work well in this style.
“It’s when woods, whites and metals are happiest together. It’s that pop of red and a hint of barnyard whimsey.” It’s also another one of my favorite looks for the season.
The Farmhouse Industrial look embraces what is comfortable, casual and inviting. This laid-back rustic style uses pops of color and industrial elements to create a home that is not just cozy but has a playful side as well.
Pottery Barn’s Tips on Farmhouse Industrial Decorating
Getting this look is easy, especially if you already have a flair for either farmhouse or industrial.
1. Start with fresh whites, distressed finishes, and industrial elements
Farmhouse Industrial style lets you play around with different materials by juxtaposing rustic woods with modern metals. Whitewashed wood sets the ultimate backdrop, and imperfect finishes and pops of red play up the farmhouse feel. Then, give it an edge with wrought iron, galvanized metal, and black decor.
2. Layer on classic checks and stripes in vivid reds or blues
No farmhouse style–kitchen is complete without gingham. Mix this pattern in with buffalo check and stripes for a more elevated approach. As for color, reds and blues look great against the whites, blacks and wood.
3. Evoke a sense of nostalgia with playful accents
Pieces inspired by the past really help pull this look off. From bistro-style dinnerware and café glasses to patchwork quilts that feel like family heirlooms, these little additions make a big, cozy impact. Sprinkle in some small sculptural pieces, like animal-shaped salt and pepper shakers, for extra whimsy.
Decorate with drama by adding visual interest to your spaces with oversized art, vases in various sizes and faux botanicals handcrafted to look just like the real thing. With a reclaimed pine frame, bold red finish and custom iron hardware, the Rico Media Console certainly fits the farmhouse industrial vibe. Each console is distressed by hand, making for a one-of-a-kind piece.
