I’ve created a simple style guide for any of you that are in the process of transitioning to farmhouse decor in your home.

If you haven’t ready my post about how I personally transitioned to farmhouse style, jump on over and take a peek. I shared photos of our old home, how I decorated, and what I’d do differently today. That is a great starting point if you’re wanting to make the same transition yourself.I hope this guide inspires you to create a home YOU love.

Now let’s do some shopping. First up is rugs!
Area rugs play a huuuuuuge role in setting the tone for your decor. I really can’t stress that enough. And if you read my post about how I transitioned to farmhouse decor, you’d probably agree. Remember the orange rug in our old living room? Yep, it was orange. And it wasn’t pretty. Choosing a more neutral toned rug is generally a better idea if you’re going for a farmhouse look. But keep in mind, rugs are more of an investment, although the 5 I’ve gathered here are well priced. As for size, I usually got for either a 5×7 or 8×10 for my area rugs.
