Farmhouse style is one of the most popular decorating styles at the moment. It’s a variation of classic country and cottage styles with a contemporary twist. It’s also a very versatile style that can be as simple, rustic, glamorous, masculine or feminine as you wish.
One of the best ways to incorporate a farmhouse touch in a space is with a wall treatment. There are four types that beautifully capture the charm of the style and can be a part of a full farmhouse look or bring in a subtle touch of it, depending on what you’re going for. They are shiplap, beadboard, reclaimed wood paneling, and chalkboard.
Here are 10 examples of homes that beautifully incorporated one or more of these charming farmhouse wall treatments to add character to the decor.
