People everywhere have realized that a house needs to be a home for ultimate happiness, and while we love the ‘everything in its place’ look, you want a home that’s lived in. You want a home that surrounds you with pieces you love–that add both beauty and function. Farmhouse style incorporates nostalgia and functional design–often bringing unique decor and soft, subtle colors. It’s soothing, it’s personal, it’s the ultimate style statement–what’s not to love? This living room features a neutral palette, but the personal effects bring in soft colors for the ideal look. Grays and browns live harmoniously together in this space for a subtle contrast that results in graceful appeal.
