New Looks to Love: Farmhouse Industrial

New Looks to Love: Farmhouse Industrial


The Farmhouse Industrial look is where rustic meets modern. It’s family-friendly and comfortable. It’s when woods, whites and metals are happiest together. It’s that pop of red and a hint of barnyard whimsy. And it’s one of our favorite looks for the season ahead.

The Inspiration

Our favorite homes are comfortable, casual, and inviting, and the Farmhouse Industrial look embraces all three. Farmhouse Industrial marries laid-back rustic style with industrial elements and a pop of color to create a space that’s cozy and inviting, with a side of playful style.

Get the Look

1.     Start with fresh whites, distressed finishes and industrial elements

Farmhouse Industrial style lets you play around with different materials by juxtaposing rustic woods with modern metals. Whitewashed wood sets the ultimate backdrop, and imperfect finishes and pops of red play up the farmhouse feel. Then, give it an edge with wrought iron, galvanized metal and black decor.

2.     Layer on classic checks and stripes in vivid reds or blues

No farmhouse style–kitchen is complete without gingham. Mix this pattern in with buffalo check and stripes for a more elevated approach. As for color, reds and blues look great against the whites, blacks and wood.

3.     Evoke a sense of nostalgia with playful accents

Pieces inspired by the past really help pull this look off. From bistro-style dinnerware and café glasses to patchwork quilts that feel like family heirlooms, these little additions make a big, cozy impact. Sprinkle in some small sculptural pieces, like animal-shaped salt and pepper shakers, for extra whimsy.

Make it Yours

Getting this look is easy ­– especially if you already have a flair for either industrial or farmhouse. The bright, cheerful red is key to this aesthetic – so start by layering red pillows or tabletop accents into your current set up. Feeling ambitious? Nothing feels as Farmhouse Industrial as a barn door on a wrought iron rod.
