The good news is, you don’t have to be rural to get this comfortable look. Here’s how to incorporate that farmhouse feeling, no matter where you live.

Farmhouse Look: Apron Sink
Traditionally a utilitarian fixture, a deep farmhouse sink and goose neck tap can instantly create casual elegance in any kitchen. This farmhouse style looks incredible, with soft white cabinets to finish off the looks. A single apron sink also looks fantastic in a laundry room, and it’s functional too!
Farmhouse Look: Neutral Palette
Once thought of as boring, a neutral paint palette is a staple of farmhouse elegance because it makes rooms feel large yet cosy, and it puts the emphasis on the furnishings rather than on a bold feature paint colour. To perfectly exemplify this style, stick to neutrals with very subtle undertones, such as blue and grey, as well as a soft pastel palette.
