Farmhouse decor is all about the word ‘declutter’.
That means either finding a spot for things or finding a new home for things. By things, I mean the ‘stuff’ that is never used or needed and is taking up space.

2. Invest in something rustic.
Rustic means vintage with a lot of love. Light colored furniture with a few scratches is vintage with love. You could also put something on the wall that inspires that farmhouse feeling.
3. It’s all about the kitchen too.
Farm sinks are huge with the farmhouse style. So are accents such as glass soap dispensers, white linens, and mason. Open shelves are also a farmhouse idea.
4. Accents like pillows, trays, and vases.
Light color pillows and vases. Trays that are rustic or light colored.
5. Finally, minimal window and floor coverings.
Have you ever noticed that on these TV shows they never have the windows covered?
In reality, we like to have the option for covering those windows for privacy at time.
For a farmhouse feel, keep those window coverings light and airy or as close to neutral as possible.
Hardwood floors are all the rage too in farmhouse decor. Covering those floors is usually a natural or white minimalist rug.
