Farmhouse deco for a winter full of authenticity and softness

A gentle mix of country style and recent deco trends that will warm up the atmosphere of your interior and allow you to spend a hygge winter.
Delicate and warm tints to get closer to nature
Every season and every deco style have its own palette of colours. Regarding winter decoration, soft and clear shades are to be favoured in order to capture natural light in your interior.
Do not hesitate to play with the palette of neutral tones such as white, ecru or beige. These clear tints, besides making the room lighter, will also make the room look more spacious. The softness of this palette is to be combined with the warmth of natural tints like the ones found in wood in order to warm the room up naturally thanks to the brown tints.
To overcome the lack of nature, add a few touches of green. Opt for a soft and natural tint like sage-green which will bring a soothing and cosy hygge atmosphere into your farmhouse deco.
Natural and elegant furniture as winter and country-style decoration
As furniture represents an important part of our interiors, therefore it must be chosen carefully as it will give the tone of your deco and attract all eyes.
For some modern farmhouse decoration, you will need to create an elegant and refine setting while highlighting the rustic charm. To do so, do not hesitate to bargain-hunt your furniture as it will have a story and a vintage look that will add even more charm to your interior. Keep in mind that farmhouse style relies on authentic interior decoration, therefore, you should integrate many elements in raw timber, preferably in clear colours to keep some luminosity in the room.
To enhance this cosy and rural spirit, opt for a light wood floor, exposed beams, barn doors and wood beams to create charming shelves. Then, add some white cladding onto your inside walls and you will obtain a warm and rustic cocoon, ideal for hygge moments by the fireside.

Farmhouse deco is also about modernity that you should integrate in your interior by using fine materials like brass or matt black steel. These materials will create some refine and delicate style, and should be found on your lamps, in your tapware or even on your kitchen and bathroom furniture’s handles. For those fond of bohemian spirit, elements in leather or rattan like armchairs will perfectly suit the modern farmhouse atmosphere.

Essential accessories for some rustic and cosy winter deco
At winter time, what is better than lazing around inside a warm and comfortable house. In order for your farmhouse interior to become the most hygge and comforting cocoon, you ought to refine your deco down to the last detail.
Get inspired by the hygge deco of Scandinavian countries and create an atmosphere where you will love nestling. Opt for super soft carpets at the bed end or in the sitting room, put lots of plaids and cushions to make you forget the cold outside, and a few pouffes in the lounge for the most comfortable of interiors. As we must cultivate hygge even more in winter, add a few candles to create a cosy and cocooning atmosphere.

Because the world of deco is never tired of natural materials, favour household linen made of cotton gauze or flax, wood-log side tables and wicker hampers, so you get the most authentic of decorations.
For a country-house-style deco, integrate a few typical farm elements like a pitcher, you may use it as a vase for your flowers and plants.
To have a kitchen full of character, add rustic and vintage touches by decorating your shelves with glass jars (filled with cereals and spices), wood utensils and chopping boards, ceramic crockery and a few copper pans.
Invite nature in your farmhouse deco
In winter, the weather often discourages us from going outside. To stay in contact with nature and benefit from its soothing virtues, you ought to integrate it in your interior.
If you are lucky to have big openings, you already benefit from a lovely view outside giving the impression that nature is part of your interior. If you do not have any, place a bench seat under the window to stay close to nature when the weather is bad. The perfect cosy spot to read a book or drink a cup of tea while enjoying the surrounding nature, without leaving the warmth of your cocoon.
