When it comes to crafting a farmhouse-style wall, remember, the aesthetic is far-reaching. Ask yourself what type of farmhouse look is most appealing to you. Could it be an Italian farmhouse look?

What is the farmhouse style?
Farmhouse style in interior design is a laid back, comforting aesthetic that often evokes memories of the past. Characterized by natural materials, muted colors and warm accents, cottage decorating has become increasingly popular in recent years as people seek out ways to create an inviting atmosphere at home. At its core, this design trend is all about comfort, simplicity and nature.
The key to achieving the classic farmhouse look is in the details. The use of organic materials like wood and stone, distressed finishes, earthy color palettes and rustic accents bring a sense of nature into the home. Furnishings with comfortable shapes and fabrics provide an inviting atmosphere, while unique pieces of art or decor add a touch of personality.
With the right combination of materials and textures, anyone can create a vibe-worthy home that has the welcoming atmosphere of this look. Whether it’s adding a vintage rug to an entryway, whitewashing the walls, or using a rustic chandelier to brighten up a living room, or adding a farmhouse tile accent wall, these simple touches make all the difference.
What to keep in mind when incorporating farmhouse wall designs:
Choose the right tile.
Choose tiles that are light, airy, and bright as a base. This will allow you to explore additional touches with decor and create a truly unique space. Plus, it allows for a transitional space that’s still on trend. Consider using wood-look, brick, or stone tiles as a focal wall to create a more traditional look.
Add in some textured accents.
Try adding rustic-inspired hardware to cabinets and doors that will provide additional texture and interest. The right furniture pieces can also add farmhouse vibes to the room, while still keeping it modern and timeless. A great option? Our Lake White ceramic subway tile. While it may seem simple, it has a handmade look and spectacular glaze that can liven any space up!
Aim for natural elements.
Go for natural materials like wood look porcelain tiles or natural stone tiles to capture the essence of country living. In doing so, you can create a aesthetically pleasing space.
Fusion is allowed.
Don’t forget to add in some fusion design elements into your decor, but don’t go overboard — a few key items can make a big impact. For instance, maybe you like a coastal farmhouse. You can achieve that with the right accent tile and accessories. We highly recommend our very own Pure White Mother of Pearl Herringbone mosaic tile as an option. It has a luxurious appeal that can create an upscale ambiance to your coastal farmhouse home.
Seek out variety.
Finally, have fun with the decor and experiment with different forms like marble look porcelain tiles from our Emporio stone look backsplash, or patterns and colors to create an inviting atmosphere! After all, perfectly imperfect is farmhouse decor’s motto.
At the end of the day, your farmhouse style should reflect your personality and make you feel at home — so don’t be afraid to try something new! With these tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way to designing a stunning rusic modern wall that will serve as the centerpiece of any room.
