"Romantic Farmhouse." That's the description that springs to mind when I think of a space with light colors, natural, neutral furnishings, painted wood and floral accents. I recently helped a homeowner update a few pieces for her newly built home that is a perfect example of Romantic Farmhouse style.
Sorry, this isn't a house tour but you can catch a few glimpses of the lovely space in the background of my furniture pics.
She chose an all-time favorite slipcover fabric for two large club chairs in the great room. A cotton-linen blend, it's one of those great fabrics that can work in just about any design style or color scheme, is hard wearing, washable AND reasonably priced. Win!
I would choose this fabric over Belgian Linen any day, especially at about one third of the price.
The homeowner bought her barstools at Ikea. Originally the legs were black but a can of spray paint quickly fixed that. Less than two yards each of the charming Waverly floral completed her vision for kitchen island seating.
Here's a before shot of the club chairs. They're Pennsylvania House pieces and quite lovely in red velvet too.
