Coastal Wall Decor
Yes we know what you’re thinking, coastal farmhouse? It’s a thing and it’s more common than you would think. Stray away from navy and dark green and lighten that color palette up. This style often incorporates light sea glass, light driftwood, and warm brass accents. Showcase your wall with a driftwood framed mirror, make it the centerpiece for your farmhouse decor by adding geometric balance. Think light, airy and breezy on this one.
Rustic Storage Wall Decor

If you’re a collector, this is made for you to put your eclectic style in one organized unit and display it in a tasteful farmhouse manner. To accent this vintage wall decor, simply pair it with rustic items such as an iron basket, mason jars or tin pails.
White Wood Stained Finishes
You’ve probably seen this a lot in the last half a decade or so, especially if you’re a die-hard Joanna Gaines fan. This trendy wall decor staple is here to stay, it’s the white wood finish. Paint, old mirrors, gothic window frame cutouts, picture frames, chests you name it. It looks good on everything! We’ve particularly noticed a trend with these vintage-looking white mirrors in the last year or so since they go with every farmhouse style.
Repurposed Wall Shutters
Compliment your kitchen set up with a layered look of old repurposed shutters added with greenery and a statement sign. Add a vintage touch by showcasing the greenery in tin pails or mason jars. You could also add a metal pendant lighting for a more industrial look or stick to a softer pendant lamp. Statement signs like these can be found at Home Goods as well as other complimenting tin pails and greenery.
Collage Wall Decor
Lastly, a wall decor classic is the collage. Instead of your typical live laugh love insignia, personalize it with the names of your family in a crossword. What surrounds it is completely up to you. To stay authentic to the farmhouse design style try surrounding your family crossword with greenery, other inspirational quotes, mirrors, iron keys etc. Design the collage of your dreams, but keep it simple, limit it to at least four to five things maximum as to not make it look cluttered.
