The common thread that all farmhouse styled lighting shares is the antique, casual and streamlined appeal of a rustic barn. With the following picks from louielighting.com, you can find farmhouse lights that marry beauty with timeless charm.
Read on to learn how you can incorporate rustic farmhouse design into every room of your home.
- Rich wood tones
- Integrate rich or burnished wood tones in unexpected places like a rustic chandelier. The Feiss Adan 3 Light Single Tier Chandelier Rustic Iron/Burnished Wood is the perfect accent. Bonus Tip: Exposed beams, sliding barn doors, hand carved bowls, hardwood floors, and reclaimed wood furniture are prevailing themes for this design.
- Heavy Metal
- Designers say that wood isn’t the only way to create this country charm feel. Iron and scroll work are the perfect way to spruce up the design while adding a Victorian, elegant allure to your space. Lanterns are an ideal way to accomplish this look. The Sea Gull Turbinio Six Light Hall / Foyer Lantern in Blacksmith features a wrought iron finish and enclosed candelabras that lend a rustic yet sophisticated feel.
- Choose An Open layout
- The design elements of the farmhouse come to life when used in an open floor plan. These spaces typically fuse the kitchen and living areas into one great room for family and friends. A spacious floor plan with ivory walls is the perfect way to showcase a statement piece like the Fredrick Raymond Six Light Clear Seedy Glass Rustic Iron Island Light, available in a beautiful barn red finish with candelabra bulbs.
- White simplicity
- Sticking to a white color palette throughout the home will create clean, simple look often associated with rustic or country decor. White painted brick, concrete or whitewashed furniture are common ways to incorporate this look.
