So you've revamped your kitchen décor, upgraded your bedroom, and even organized your garage. That leaves one space in your home you really need to tackle: the living room. Before you lay down new carpeting or buy that ultra-modern lighting fixture, might we suggest you first take a look at these farmhouse living room ideas? The blockbuster design trend, which has been around for years, shows no signs of slowing, so you don't have to worry about it looking dated anytime soon. And it's easy to replicate, thanks to its neutral palette and cozy-chic look. Best of all—there are plenty of Pioneer Woman products that will match your farmhouse living space.
Because farmhouse decor tends toward minimalism, it leaves lots of room for seasonal decorations, whether we're talking spring, summer, or any other time of year. (And since loads of throws and pillows are often part of the farmhouse look, it's a perfect aesthetic for winter and fall!) Farmhouse decorating ideas often include lots of shiplap and barn-style doors, but there are also smaller projects, like distressed furniture and vintage objects that will help you get the look as well. Farmhouse even blends well with other design movements—if you have a coastal or boho living room you can just add a few farmhouse elements here and there for a fresh new look. So read on for the full scoop on farmhouse design. Your living room will thank you for it!

Neutral shades like beige, gray, cream, taupe, brown, black and white, are hugely popular in farmhouse design. Here, the couch, chairs, pillows and throws all boast neutral hues, as does the fireplace, a bold black that contrasts beautifully with the bright white walls.

This blogger actually keeps this gorgeous hutch in her home office, but we think it would look spectacular in a farmhouse living room thanks to the distressed white finish. The comforting collectibles tucked inside, including the old photo, pail and pitchers, also lend a home-y farmhouse vibe.

Weathered Wood Walls
Weathered wood planking, which was added on by the blogger, gives this living room some real farmhouse flair. So does the white, painted fireplace, and the nifty DIY wood slice fireplace facade that provides the space with another nicely rustic element.

The use of a blue accent color alongside white walls and furniture tips its hat to a coastal motif, but there's plenty of farmhouse influence here as well. Slipcover couches, turned table legs and lots of throw pillows all stand out, as do the gorgeous hydrangea blooms (a favored farmhouse flower).
