Translating the Trend: Farmhouse Chic

Translating the Trend: Farmhouse Chic - bhgrelife.comBring Metals into the Mix

Complement the warmth of weathered wood with the industrial effect of metal—it all works when you play with the patina and select metals that have an antiqued, burnished, or galvanized finish for a softness of their own. This can be achieved with lighting fixtures and metal accent pieces like frames, clocks, candlesticks, and baskets as well as small-scale furniture pieces such as metal stools and appliances. Well-placed vintage metal pieces—either real or re-production—lend an air of authenticity and help create a curated ambiance that feels “collected” rather than “decorated.”
