Colorful Farmhouse Style

There is nothing more charming than a farmhouse. It's a style that resonates with the past: humble, primitive, and simple. If farmhouses could speak they'd probably say things like, "why don't we go and pick some tomatoes," or "let's sit out on the porch with our iced tea". Farmhouses aren't specific to any location in the United States, because most every state has farming, and internationally farmhouses are part of the historical landscape. Therefore, we all identify with farmhouses, and find ourselves charmed by their simplicity. 

Farmhouse style or "modern farmhouse" is probably the most popular style today. Scroll through Pinterest and you're likely to see a farmhouse themed kitchen image that has been pinned 4.2k times. Most images are laden with neutral colors and natural materials, lovely, but what happened to using color? Read below for "colorful farmhouse style" tips.
