Think AGAs, hops and distressed wood. The farmhouse style always keeps its charm and looks even better with age, meaning it won’t matter if things suffer the odd knock – it will only add to its charm. This look isn’t for everyone, clean lines and clear work surfaces this is not, but carefully placed clutter is iconic of this style.

Beams shouldn’t limit your décor options in a room, instead, embrace period features by accentuating them with areas of classic wallpaper patterns, whilst mirroring the wood of the beams in the room’s furniture.
Farmhouse style doesn’t have to mean natural, mix materials such as steel and wood for a more contemporary look.
