Farmhouse wall décor

Wall décor double serves as decoration and as barriers to privacy if you live in an apartment with a balcony or near the neighbors.

Even if you rent, large wall décor may not cause an issue because you can easily remove the decorations. One common theme in the farmhouse and rustic-inspired spaces is the wood, double serving as a natural element that instills coziness and a barrier. Wood has different shades and undertones; this is why we recommend choosing a style before you start shopping around. Darker shades of wood are better for spaces that have sunlight, while lighter wood helps more light come in.

For example, if your outdoor space is a bit smaller, you can brighten your room using a wooden garden mirror that will make your space seem larger. This is because the reflection pays a trick on the eye, allowing more light to enter the space. While mirrors are one accent, others can help bring your farmhouse dreams come to life.

Garden décor

If you’ve taken up gardening recently, you know the struggle of having a blooming garden. But with faux trees, you can bring the look effortlessly and efficiently, saving you the time of caring for live plants.

The beauty of plants is that you can still have a garden, but you can enhance the look of your outdoor area by blending natural plants with fake ones. For example, topiaries are perfect for a farmhouse look but require landscaping that is expensive to maintain and time-consuming. Luckily with artificial plants, you can still achieve your dream farmhouse outdoor garden décor. One of the best ways to make fake plants look more real is by blending them with real plants; this creates an illusion as they camouflage with their natural counterparts.

  1. Add some vintage planters – Planters can help make your plants appear higher. Especially in modern farmhouse décor, there is still an element of vintage that you can add by designing with vintage floral planters.

Geraniums will brighten any outdoor space without ever needing maintenance, especially if you have an outdoor party; you can’t go wrong with these flowers.
  3. Lemon Artificial Tree – We all know how difficult it can be to see the fruits of your labor. Depending on where you live, growing produce is near impossible because of the climate. You can trick your friends into thinking you can grow a lemon tree; this artificial tree even has faux lemons on it.
