With Easter coming up, you may be looking for new ways to give your dining table a makeover.
I'm sure you already know this, but Farmhouse Style is all the rage right now and it's just perfect for the spring season. Farmhouse Style is a fresher take on country, with lots of neutral colors and rustic textures. Just take a look at the Burlap Natural Table Linens above and you'll get the idea. Primitive, but not so dark. Plain, but certainly not boring. Just add some classic white dishes and even a simple centerpiece like fresh fruit will pop with style. Need a little more color? Here's a rustic burlap place setting with a vibrant purple napkin.
Here's another idea for adding Farmhouse flavor to your table- incorporate vintage style grain sack motifs. We're seeing grain sack stripes everywhere these days. They provide an instant nostalgic vibe to your table. Check out these Homestead Seed Label Placemats by Heritage Lace ~
Patchworks are always welcome in country decor- even in the dining room. Nothing is more cozy than a farmhouse table draped with a patchwork quilt. The next best thing would be a patchwork tablecloth, like the pretty Cornflower Patchwork Tablecloth shown below. It mixes soft neutral plaids and calico florals with touches of blue. So pretty for spring!
Another item that should be in your linen closet is the quilted table topper. You'll be surprised at how often you reach for one of these little babies. They're perfect for adding a dash of color to a buffet table or side board- heck they can even be used as wall decor. They're so pretty, and so decidedly country. Check out one of our favorites below, the neutral Fieldstone Table Topper.
Last but not least, old fashioned lace can take on a down-home charm when paired with rustic wood and metal accessories. The juxtaposition of rustic and refined makes this look really pop. Look at the delicate Floret Table Runner atop this rugged farmhouse table.
The look is clean, calm and neutral with a touch of nostalgia. That's what Farmhouse style is all about, don't you think? To see more of our favorite Farmhouse linens check out these pages-
