Farmhouse style has been catching on big time. The style is comfy and vintage, I love the rustic but homey, welcoming feeling of the rooms. In our hectic stressful lives there is nothing better than coming home to a warm cozy setting.
We will look at the Farmhouse style and then look at a few fixtures.
Farmhouse style is a simple, unpretentious look based on you guessed it, the farm. You would usually see an informal welcoming area (the farmer's porch). In terms of style, white cabinets are the dominant look in the kitchen along with wood tables and of course the apron front or farmer sink.
It is a rustic look with simple touches. Farmhouse is not about formality, so a crystal light probably would not be appropriate. Consider a more basic type of light.

A metal finish is another option to achieve the look. Using brass or copper gives you a warm, welcoming feeling.
This chandelier from Curry and Co. is very traditional and the dark finish goes well with a farmhouse style table.
