'Getting down on the Farm' - Farmhouse Interior Design

Whether you have fallen in love with a dream like setting such as River Cottage, the rugged rural living in ‘Wuthering Heights’ or the cozy set up of Pa Larkin’s pad in ‘The Darling Buds of May’ farmhouse living certainly conjures up an idealist, romantic family setting because country farmhouses have it all – beams, tiled floors, views and land not to mention the menagerie in the back garden! Many city dwellers hanker for the farmyard life, the rolling hills and the bleating lambs so why is county living a dream for so many? According to government statistics* being born and living in a rural area means a longer life expectancy, lower infant mortality rate, people living in relative and absolute low income is lower and rural areas enjoy a lower crime rate too...but we can't all live in the countryside...yet that doesn't mean to say you can't have the 'farmhouse' you dream of. If your home embraces more of a shabby chic style than country pile, yet farmyard fashion is your passion then creating the look is easier than you may think – window shutters and white washed beams, weathered wooden furniture in the hallway and industrial furniture for feature pieces is fantastic. You can bring the outside in with animal sculptures and contemporary art animal heads on the walls. This is a great way to embrace farmhouse style and opting for hand-made artwork rather than taxidermy re-invents the old style shooting lodge ‘stag’s head wall hanging’ without the hunting tag. Whether you have an apartment in the town centre, a semi-detached in suburbia or a sprawling manor on an estate, connecting with nature in your home design will take you down that country track and deliver farmhouse style without the need to up sticks and move. Vintage Vibe have a great range of furniture and décor that will bring the farmhouse look alive so take a look at their website www.vinteagevibe.co.uk or give them a call on 01622 629029. *Statistics from www.gov.uk/government/collections/rural-living
