If you ask me what style my home is I would probably say “traditional, classic, timeless”. But I’d be quick to add that because StoneGable is a farmhouse it also has lots of farmhouse influence and charm. Combining a little farmhouse decor with almost any style make a home have a charming, cozy and welcoming look! I’ve created such a simple, no fuss vignette using some farmhouse elements.
This week on Decorating Tips and Tricks we are talking about FARMHOUSE STYLE, HOW TO FIND HIDDEN STORAGE AREAS IN YOUR HOME and DINING ROOMS.

Galvanized metals are a farmhouse classic… and are easy to find both new and old. Today’s easy-peasy vignette is gathered up in a galvanized tray!
I doubled up on the galvanized metal by adding a small round lidded galvanized canister. I love the round ball on the top!
I have been thinking that painting the bottom of the galvanized tray white would be a pretty way to break it up a bit. Looks like I have a little project for the beginning of the week!
White pitchers, or any white ironstone type dish, bowl, platter or pitcher, are a quintessential farmhouse must have. One of my favorite ways to use a white pitcher is a vase. Today’s sweet smelling hyacinths look right at home in a more modern take on an ironstone pitcher!
Did you notice the pitcher was on a stack of burlap covered books? Burlap is another farmhouse element that can be transformed and used with so many different styles! I’ve covered lots old books in burlap and use them in most of the rooms in my home! Burlap can be used in table runners, furniture, and so many other ways.
I like the order the burlap covers give my books! And they make the most amazing risers to prop things on too!
A berry bowl on a white dish holds dominoes. We are big Mexican Train players. I love the creamy look and feel of dominoes!!! What is more farmhouse style than a game of checkers or dominoes on the porch!
Such an easy vignette filled with farmhouse charm! No matter the style of your home a little bit of farmhouse in it would be a good thing!
