4. Light and bright. For some early farmhouse owners, the walls were kept light because of limited access to more expensive colored finishes. Families with a little more money sometimes used wallpaper in important spaces, such as entryways, to showcase their style or affluence. But simple, light walls have become an identifiably classic characteristic of farmhouse interiors, providing rich contrast against darker treasured design elements.
Get this look: Paint your walls, trim, doors and baseboards in a light color for an affordable and easy way to honor farmhouse style. Woodwork isn't always painted in farmhouses, but if your home has limited light, you may consider painting any dark wood to brighten your space. Just be careful — once you paint wood, there's no going back.
