The vintage farmhouse wall is unique, and creating the same effect at home takes careful planning. However, there is a range of wall and garden plants that will give the correct result, and the good news is that they are artificial and so lifelike that no one can tell the difference. You can get the look without the maintenance. The artificial plants outlined today are new, and most people haven't experienced them yet. Nothing conveys the feeling of 'age' like a trailing English Ivy; this is an excellent plant to start with; wind it around wires on a dark kitchen wall until the wall is nearly covered. Or outdoors, a whole English Ivy wall or an expandable fence covered in ivy to reflect the light in. This gives a vintage appearance, providing a backdrop for the farmhouse decor that will transform the kitchen, all with minimal expense. Think of the grand English gardens sprouting with green on the exterior.
The outdoor kitchen garden is the perfect spot for the Nearly Natural English Ivy. The artificial ivy comes in varying shades of green and is tightly clustered together for a simple thick look. It is UV resistant, and the rain will run off it without penetrating the leaves. One of the advantages is that it can increase the occupants' privacy by preventing the neighbors from looking in. Not only is it a clever way to add privacy, but it can also help keep away bugs and other pesky insects from entering the home.
Mini Vintage Farmhouse Signs for The Kitchen and Other Ideas
Once a great faux wall is created, use it as a backdrop for some signs and other vintage ideas that will set the space off.
- Faux Olive Plant
The green of the olive leaf is a soft color that goes with everything. Put it into a 'retro' milk can, at the entrance to the kitchen. The silver milk can and the green olive will soften the space.
- Church Pew Seat
Buy a church pew seat for the kitchen, readily available in sales, with ornate wooden filigree at either end. The pew is not only helpful but ages the kitchen immediately. Either end can be transformed with mini-plants in pots attached to the lattice to give a rustic look.
- Antique Mini Signs
Order some farmhouse wooden antique signs, or alternately source some locally. However, it is easier to order what is required online ( to get the colors right) and then erects them on the kitchen walls to age the space further. Add a floating shelf for some small low, maintenance faux plants and books.
- Vintage Vase
Go through grandmother's cupboards for a vintage vase to fill with various faux greenery for the table. The vase can be pretty big to create the right effect. Vary the type of greenery used, even one with some berries could brighten the space and give a seasonal impact.
- Railway Clock
Once all vintage farmhouse kitchens had a railway clock. Purchase a big round-the-clock with numbers on the face to instantly age the kitchen.
Place mini wall brackets on either side with faux plants to enliven the space and give a retro feel.
If the kitchen area is dark, brighten it up with subtle downlights in the ceiling to shed extra light on the space. Even track-led lighting that can be moved around is a great idea for those dark spots.
Vintage Farm Decor for The Dining Room
Sometimes the dining room is ignored in favor of eating in the kitchen. So now that Summer is nearly here, it is time to revamp the dining area for family gatherings.
Order this lovely weathered wood shutter to mount on the dining room wall for a rustic and romantic feel. This timeless piece of art will soften a drab space and come with a frame.
Nothing says summer like a golden cane palm, and this lovely faux palm will be the perfect plant for your dining area.
- Center Piece
The dining table will require the perfect centerpiece, and the size and style will depend on how big the table is. If it is a long table, trail some English Ivy and some ferns down the center; a smaller table will require a posy of artificial flowers to make it look beautiful for any occasion.
This unique piece captivates the whole family, bringing the perfect provincial look to the dining room. The Peacock is printed on weathered wood, giving a great country feel to the room.
