Balancing Act

This sun-drenched farmhouse dining room is equal parts effortless, inviting and fresh. The pros at Vernich Interiors achieve the well-balanced design by weaving a mix of casual furnishings, contrasting finishes and earthy textures throughout the space. Most notable juxtaposition? Upholstered linen-and-burlap skirted chairs head the reclaimed table, while four inky Windsor chairs flank the sides. Get the look at home by surrounding your farmhouse table with fabric and wooden or metal dining chairs.

Find Your Light

Pro tip: Never underestimate the visual impact that ceiling light fixtures have on a design — especially in dining room designs. Choose a chandelier, pendant or lantern with a silhouette and finish that supports your farmhouse aesthetic. Designer Marie Flanigan illuminates her moody country dining room with two eye-catching pendants in a rosy copper finish.

Give It a Rustic Twist

Interior designer Kristen Forgione puts a farmhouse twist on the classical elements that make up this striking dining room design. Casual honed stones create the black-and-white harlequin floors instead of polished marble, and a wood-beaded chandelier takes the place of a traditional brass-and-crystal chandelier over the weathered wood dining table. Apply the same approach in your rustic dining room by incorporating timeless furnishings and accessories that feature casual, weathered, antiqued or earthy finishes.

Dressed in Distress

Subtle distressed details add serious charm to this modern farmhouse dining room by designer Joanna Gaines. The Fixer Upper star lines the scalloped-edge, blonde wood table with aged, charcoal metal Louis-style dining chairs to bring contrasting color and texture to the design. Create a similar look in your space by pairing rustic wood furnishings with weathered metal accents like wall art, light fixtures, chairs or serveware.
