One thing that can give your living room more of a farmhouse vibe is the right paint colors. Painting a room is also one of the most affordable ways to update the look, no knocking out walls required!

These colors are all the rage right now when it comes to creating a farmhouse living room:

  • Grey, various shades of light and dark
  • Blue, from light to Navy and Teal
  • White or Ivory
  • Green, various shades

Popular brands that have beautiful farmhouse paint colors include Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams and Magnolia Home.

Farmhouse Living Room Curtains

When you think of farmhouse curtains, what comes to mind? White or light colored, flowy, airy, vintage looking?

Trendy farmhouse curtain materials include linen, burlap, and cotton, to name a few.

Buffalo plaid curtains are all the rage right now along with cotton striped curtains.  Both look really great in living rooms but also kitchens, bedrooms and even nurseries as well.

Living Room Wall Decor Ideas

Living room gallery walls are chic right now, and relatively easy to implement. Personally I like them because they don't have to be perfect.

When creating a gallery wall, you can really let your imagination run wild! You can use a combination of family photos, inspirational quote wall art, farmhouse prints and anything else you like. Mix up sizes and colors too to give it a unique look.


Find tips on how to do that here!

If gallery walls aren't your thing, you might try these wall decoration ideas for your living room:


Mirror– mirror wall decor used to be quite popular and is making a comeback. I can remember my mom having a gold mirror hanging above our gold couch (yes I'm old, ha ha!) and it looked great.

Those same gold mirrors are being used in farmhouse living rooms everywhere. Etsy has a nice assortment of vintage mirrors available.

If you don't love the gold look, consider painting your antique mirror frame to give it an entirely different look.


Find out how to paint a mirror frame with chalk paint in the video below.


Tapestry– This is a wonderful large wall decor idea for your living room. They used to be a little old school as well but with the variety of styles currently available, farmhouse tapestries are a great option.


Picture Frames–  Using picture frames in your decorating can be fun. There are so many picture frame wall ideas out there, but here are a few.

Use all matching frames that are the same size to display your photos with a cohesive look.

Consider a picture frame with chicken wire to display your photos loosely, in a simple, classic style.

Use a collage frame to exhibit your collection of photos beautifully in one place. This ladder collage frame screams living room farmhouse decor!

Living Room Table Decor

One aspect of decorating is finding  farmhouse living room table decor. Coffee tables and end tables are perfect spots to add a little farmhouse flair to your decorating. Wire baskets, wooden trays, and  vases make great farmhouse table decorations and are easy to change around regularly when you want to update your space.

You might even consider a farmhouse table centerpiece  for your coffee table like the one pictured below. Or if you're a DIYer, you could even make one for yourself.

If you're worrying about scratching your table or even to give it a unique look, a farmhouse table runner will take care of both queries! I simply love the look of this burlap table runner, there are  variety of other similar options on Etsy.

Living Room Ideas on a Budget

Repurpose Old Decor

How many times have you found something and thought to yourself, “this has the potential to be something great”? Sometimes you can find vintage home decor that just needs a little love.

Try shopping at flea markets, antique stores and garage sales. Many pieces you find will likely work as is,  since farmhouse decor is all about chippy paint, old and vintage items anyway.

But if you find something old and worn out that you can breathe new life into, by all means, get your DIY on and get to it!

Some ideas that might be good DIY projects for your living room:

  • Coffee Table
  • End Table
  • Sofa Table
  • Centerpieces
  • Mirror
  • Picture Frame
  • Shelf


Hobby Lobby

One of the best places to find farmhouse decor on a budget is Hobby Lobby. They have such a wide variety of items, and very decent prices.

Their weekly ad offers products at steep discounts, sometimes up to 50% off! They also have coupons available regularly as well as an online clearance section.

You can find everything from wall decor and pillows to table decor and lighting. I love browsing their farmhouse decor online, it helps if you keep a running list of what you want to get.

Rustic Decor

You might be asking yourself what is a rustic look anyway? Natural pieces, often from or inspired by nature that give a warm and cozy feeling is the best way I can describe it.

Rustic living room ideas on a budget would include things like galvanized steel pieces, vintage glass jars or stoneware, and of course wooden shelving.

You might even consider rustic living room furniture, pieces made of natural or reclaimed wood. You can find rustic sofa tables, TV stands, coffee tables, end tables and more on Etsy.
