Latest Trend? Rustic Farm Look

Pin it button big

After receiving an onslaught of catalogues for the "latest fall trends," we started noticing that more and more mainstream home furnishing places are pushing the modern-yet-rustic farmhouse look (or, as one of our friends put it, "Little Danish House on the Prairie"). It may have started with Pottery Barn and the Sundance Home catalogues awhile back plus the rising popularity of Shaker furniture--well, we have to say that we're more than a little intrigued. Perhaps the downward spiraling of our economy is nudging our tastes to go back to the basics? Who knows. What do you think of this style?
