The farmhouse trend is taking the world by storm, and I’m A-OK with it. All things light and bright, paired with reclaimed wood, and a whole lot of greenery makes me one happy girl.
However, the price tag that comes with most farmhouse swag typically leaves me feeling stuck with the decor I’ve had for the past ten years.
If you’re one of the lucky ones blessed with an IKEA near you – I’ve got good news. With a little bit of digging, you can find some farmhouse items at a fraction of the cost.
See a few of my favorite IKEA farmhouse finds below!
This is the highest priced item on my list, but comparatively, the cost is quite low for a sofa. My favorite thing about this sofa? Every inch is covered by a removable and machine washable linen cover. Kiss your fears of a stained white sofa goodbye!
Nothing screams farmhouse style more than greenery. I love these little plants so much – and at such a low-cost, you can afford to splurge on a few for every room in your house! This is one of those items I can’t seem to leave IKEA without buying. And cinnamon rolls. Every. Time.
Pair the FEJKA artificial plants with these SOCKER plant pots and you’ve got instant country. I’ve used these with small candles and pine cones during the winter season as well. Super versatile, and super cheap.
This “vase” comes in either a 6″ or 8 3/4″ size. As you may have guessed, it can be used as a pitcher as well. I sometimes use mine for flowers, but mostly as a crock for my cooking utensils. Whisks and wooden spoons in a white pitcher next to the stove? *Swoon*
Farmhouse means anything natural – or neutral. This flat woven rug comes in two sizes, and warms up a room without weighing it down. Think earthy meets cozy.
Please tell me I’m not the only one obsessed with lanterns. Anyone else? The soft glow of candles is one thing. But, the lantern steps up your ambiance game just a notch. Throw some leaves around the base during the fall, some pine cones or greenery during the winter, flower petals in the spring… I could go on and on. Indoor, outdoor, you name it. Just buy one, or four, okay?
Not to be repetitive with the natural/neutral game, but if wild colors are your thing, the farmhouse trend may not be for you. These little baskets would be great in a bathroom, pantry, office, vanity.. anywhere really. Keep them grouped together, with one lid off for variety.
I love this pendant lamp alone over a dining room table, but think they would also look great paired together over a long island. IKEA has a whole RANARP lighting series, including desk lamps and wall clamp spotlights.
One of the easiest ways to add farmhouse charm to your decor is by adding open shelving. I dream of an airy kitchen with open shelves like these, piled high with white everything. Yet, it stays a dream because getting rid of our current cabinets seems like an awful lot of work. For an easier option, hang these one above the other, layer in a few picture frames and one of your FEJKA plants. Easy peasy farmhouse flare.
And last but most definitely not least.. if you’re able to walk out of the store without buying either (or both, in my case) of these, you have much more willpower than me. They have nothing to do with farmhouse style, but your taste buds will thank you. I promise.
