I love HOUZZ for all the inspiring photos and positive uplifting ideas of the writers, designers, and homeowners. In that respect, I think this website is one of a kind. However, I quietly yearn for a little debate or descencion. Understanding the motivation or inspiration behind the idea or trend is the basis for being impervious to the trappings of a "fad".
Although "Farmouse Style" is a trend, it's not likely to go away anytime soon if ever. The trend has been around for a while and has only gotten more popular over the last 17 yrs. since I installed a farmhous kitchen sink for a client. They chose that sink because it was in stark contrast to the stainless steel sinks that have enjoyed ever growing popularity since the '60's. The more popular stainless becomes the greater the demand for farmhouse style sinks.
@mfwolfe I admire your willingness to express your opinion so candidly. Two things you fail to understand is one; the vast majority of houzzers are either urban or sub-urban 'ites who either hail from rural locales or have relatives from "the sticks". They may love where they live but will always yern for the simple life. Adding these pieces to their home helps create a more sublime, restful, or peaceful environment. Therein lies the power of good design.
Two; it's called a "style" because it takes it's cues from farmhouses. It's not meant to mimic or be "authentic". As @suzyad astutely points out "...the rooms are all minimal...". Minimalism and Farmhouse Style share a focus on simplicity. Simplicity and neatness imply order or control and restfulness or respite. Or, as @TheBigSmall states, "purely functional". That purposefulness equates to simplicity. I don't think anyone above is aspiring to be a "moderately prosperous farmers wife".
Three; shaker style furniture is beloved for it's clean simple lines and implied structural integrity(quality and strength of materials and craftsmanship).
Four; I've never seen an interior barn door that I didn't think was bitch'n! After 40 yrs of cheap flimsy pocket doors, that function poorly if at all, this trend is a profound response.
Five; writers and designers dont create styles or trends, consumers do.
Six; (oops! Did I say two?) Houzz will come to your little community just as soon as someone from your community uploads photos of interesting design.
