Using a neutral pallet
Brown, beige, oatmeal, and other neutral colours are popular with the farmhouse look. Use these against cream-coloured walls and flooring, and add a splash of personality with pastel features and accessories. The Montana wing chair is finished in a beige fabric, with a coordinating tartan scatter cushion, making it very much at home in a rustic farmhouse living room – perfect for lazy lounging.
Key pieces to create your rustic farmhouse look
Rustic oak is a key material when it comes to creating a farmhouse look in your living room. The golden tones and unique wood grain patterns of rustic oak furniture give it a cosy, authentic feel. A statement bookcase or display cabinet will look great, and smaller pieces, like a nest of tables, will complement the whole look.
When rustic meets modern
Give your rustic living room scheme a modern twist by incorporating grey furniture. Look for classic pieces that have a contemporary grey finish, such as painted furniture or a statement-making sofa.
The Carrington 4 seater pillow back sofa is ultra-comfy and brings a cosy feel, with its generous cushions and plush seating. Continue the look with a Kemble 4-drawer coffee table, which combines a rustic oak top with a painted finish with lavender tones for an elegant finish.
Show off your personality with accessories and ornaments that reflect your taste. Artwork, soft furnishings, and lush houseplants all add a personal touch to make a room feel more inviting.
An oversized clock, such as the Dayton wall clock, is a great addition that will help finish the room. With its charming antique-style and Roman numerals, it will blend seamlessly into your rustic living space.

Getting the lighting right is key to creating a cosy living room environment, and you can bring warmth and style to your living room with a pendulum lighting display. Copper lights with vintage-style bulbs bring a soft, warm glow that perfectly suits a farmhouse-themed space.
