Fresh Feminine Farmhouse Living Room Ideas

The stoplight of a home typically begins and ends with the appeal of your living room. When it comes to having a farmhouse living room, having sleek decor is always a great idea, but upgrading it with a new twist is even better. Which brings us to the concept of adding a fresh and feminine allure to your farmhouse living room décor. Here’s how to do just that!

Softer Wall Display

When it comes to farmhouse wall display, the less hectic the better. You want your display to be as welcoming as possible.

Farmhouse décor is notorious for having bold, wall displays, and with this idea, you aren’t necessarily changing it, but you are creating a softer display. With a softer wall display, you want to frame your couches and give them the focus they deserve. To further, showcase your display consider adding a mirror to complete the look.

Barn Doors

The beauty of having barn doors as dividers is that they not only divide the room, but they add texture due to most of them having a criss-cross pattern integrated.

Barn doors are one of those things that add a sleek farmhouse allure regardless of the display you already have. Furthermore, they add a feminine twist depending on how you display them. We love the idea of having them as part of dividing your open display décor.

Floral Arrangements

When it comes to floral arrangements you want to stay in the same color family in order to allow them to flow throughout the room.

Is there anything quite as feminine and fresh as flowers? Absolutely not! Flowers add a hint of beauty anywhere they’re placed. We recommend having multiple floral arrangements in soft, neutral hues for that calming feel. If you are allergic to flowers or not a fan of them consider having loose cotton stems on display instead.

Hanging Lanterns

Match your hanging lanterns with your light fixture to bring a well-rounded approach to your living room, with just the right amount of lighting and decor.

Oh, how we love lanterns! Lanterns are another classic farmhouse décor item, they add texture, color, and brighten a room. However, this time you want to hang them on your walls to illuminate the room in a romantic type of way. Add your lanterns in any wall that feels a bit empty or in need of a quick pick me up without a large amount of décor.

Bring on the Pastels

When it comes to working with pastels you want to remain in the same color palette as you would if you were decorating any area of the home. The main reason being you want your decor to work in unison with the rest of your home.

Pastel is not only a beautiful color palette, but it brings a classic freshness to any room. Add patterns in hues of pastel to brighten the appeal of the room. Doing so brings a classic feminine charm while further emphasizing the idea of having a twist of freshness in the air.

Faux Fur Rug

If you do not want to change your rugs, consider adding a faux fur rug on top of the rug you already have will add an additional source of texture to the room.

If you want to add a touch of something lux and feminine without disrupting your décor, adding a faux fur is one of the best ways to go. Having a faux fur is great because it has that chic appeal while still being easy on the eye. Whether you add a small rug or a large fur rug you want it to be a part of the main focal point of your living room.

Decorate your Coffee Table

For your coffee table decor, you want to go as feminine as possible to truly bring forth a feminine twist to your farmhouse decor.

Having a coffee table is great due to how much character it can add to a room. However, if you are not decorating above your coffee table you are doing yourself and your room a disservice. Decorating your coffee table allows you to further showcase your personal style and character. Add flowers, books, candles, and patterned pieces to brighten the appeal of the room.


If you can’t think of anywhere to add pattern too, consider adding pattern as part of your curtains. Doing so will enhance your decor while giving your windows a fun little twist.

Pattern is a classic staple of farmhouse décor. Therefore, it only made sense that we would incorporate it into our guide, but with a chic twist. When it comes to selecting a pattern, you want something that brightens the room while still being a bit more subtle. Consider having stripes, paisley bits and or checkered print.


Whether your wallpaper is repetitive or you have one single bold pattern, it should feel as cohesive to the room as possible in order to make a grand statement on its own yet as part of your decor. 

When in doubt, always consider wallpaper to enhance your décor. Having a wallpaper is great when you are looking to upgrade your space yet do not want to send a ton of time and money. There are numerous pattern options that you can choose from as well as multiple ways to apply and remove your wallpaper. Consider bold patterns and colors to truly bring a classic freshness to the room.

Accents of Pink

When seeking accents of pink to display consider using soft hues that won’t take away from what you currently have but will make the room feel as grandiose as possible.

Pink is here to stay, and it shows no sign of going anywhere anytime soon. The key is adding accents of pink in a bold manner. You want to have a large, daring pink piece in the room for that bold, bit of beauty added in the room. Pair with metallics to create a seamless appeal.
