Style Development & History
About Farmhouse Virtual Staging
The modernized farmhouse style has become increasingly popular over the years, especially through the HGTV show, Fixer Upper, and the wildly successful Magnolia furniture line.
Farmhouse interior design is a style that emphasizes practicality, simplicity, and rustic charm with redwood furniture and accents in natural colors and materials. Today, rural aesthetics are mixed with modern comforts to create a stylish, yet cozy look.
In contrast to other dominating interior design styles, the farmhouse style originated out of necessity. As such, early farmhouses were built with stone, wood, and other natural materials that were easily attainable.
However, once the industrial revolution hit, farm life became easier and easier, taking farmhouse style from a necessity to a coveted aesthetic.
This style became mainstream in the late 20th and early 21st centuries and also spread to homes that were not functional farms. Today, modern farmhouse design can be found across the country, as well as internationally.
