Farmhouse style has been popular for quite a while now, and doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. It’s comfortable and practical, and isn’t too hard to get the farmhouse look. An easy way to transition to this style is to add farmhouse animals … like cow decor. Hang a painting of a cow in any room and you have instant farmhouse appeal. (This post contains affiliate links.)
Did you know the color red stimulates the appetite? This dining room is sure to put people in the mood to eat with its red walls. But what I love most about the space is the cow artwork. Although, you might not feel comfortable enjoying a juicy steak with that moo-crew looking down on you.

Cow decor doesn’t have to be in the form of a painting. Photos stretched across canvas make an appealing display above a primitive bench lined with rustic farmhouse pillows.
I love oil paintings like this pastoral view of cows in the field. It’s rich and adds drama in a pastel bedroom. This room leans toward the coastal style but the cow decor gives it farmhouse flavor.
Shop the Look:
A cozy breakfast nook gets the farmhouse look with a white cow painting centered on a chocolate brown wall.
Add a small cow painting in the kitchen.
Don’t be afraid to fill a wall with a large photo of a farm friend.
Cow decor doesn’t have to hang on the wall. Lean a pair of cow prints against the wall.
An oil painting of a bovine friend nestles on a stone mantel, lending farmhouse charm to the room.
A white cow takes residence on a dark canvas. I recently purchased this same print for my house. I haven’t decided yet where I’m going to hang it. Maybe the family room.
Rather than clutter a wall with lots of prints or hangings, place one charming painting on the wall. If it’s a cow, all the better for adding farmhouse style.
A contemporary cow print works well in a more modern space, proving you can get a bit of the farmhouse look with almost any style decor.
Do you have cow art or any other farmhouse animals in your home?
