      • Use natural elements such as wood for flooring, cabinets and ceiling is a great one to consider.
      • Installing Natural/Wooden Beams or stripping current ones and staining them with a warm accent

        • Cool colours such as green and blue can bring a sense of warmth when designed with the the the rest of the elements in your space

      • Test your colours with samples on where your wall or cabinets will be for the right choice

      • In the evening, the ceiling will naturally dim, creating a sense of intimacy in the space

  • Bring Farm to Home to Your Space

It’s not about following the trend of barn doors or reclaimed wood tables.  It is thinking about the rustic elements of homes past or old world that you can use to accent your space.   These features can be the anchor theme to the kitchen or it can be an accent that adds charm to your home.    See our farm-to-home ideas here.
