Farmhouse style in Atlanta Homes

Styled By: 

Ironically, one of the best ways to update your home’s décor or curb appeal is to take it backwards. Back in time, that is—with design elements from the past that have been given a new life. Farmhouse style, with its simple, country-fresh appeal, is what’s trending now in the design world. The style retreats from the high-tech wizardry around us and celebrates quirky, vintage objects displayed in a clean, neutral background, armed with a pop of cool color.
Anita Corsini, co-host of HGTV’s “Flip or Flop Atlanta” (with her husband, Ken) explains her passion for the farmhouse influence: “I truly love this style. It has a simple elegance that radiates functionality. It’s most common to see exteriors with clean lines painted white with a touch of an accent color, like gray, beige or black. 
Inside, you see simple lines, basic cabinetry, and light colors on the walls. Then you can take an old piece of furniture, restore it and display it as a treasured focal point in a room. 
My favorite aspect is the style’s use of texture. In kitchens, open shelving is used instead of cabinets and exposed brick or reclaimed wood is used on walls and floors.”
She says that even urban homeowners in downtown condos can achieve the farmhouse look. 
“First, clear all your clutter! This look is all about minimalism. In kitchens, paint your island a soft color—and you can always change the backsplash tile to reflect a farmhouse feel. Use area rugs to define open spaces and use baskets to add a touch of character. A large light fixture above a big dining table also gives you a farmhouse vibe. Farmhouse style incorporates old and new. It’s easy to attain—it doesn’t require an overabundance of materials or fancy furnishings.”
