An Eclectic Farmhouse I’d Love to Call Home

One of my goals this year (and next) is to cut down on clutter and things I don’t need. Today’s eclectic farmhouse has a bit of a minimalist look that I find refreshing. Yes, there’s still collectibles – but there’s an underlying edited look that looks so clean.

The entryway has a wrought iron holder for canes and walking sticks. A small bachelor’s chest with a wooden bowl cradles clippings from outside. Simple and pretty.

The living room features an eclectic mix of furniture and colors. A rustic stone fireplace reveals the older age of the farmhouse with its beamed ceilings and hardwood floors. A collection of wooden duck decoys line a built-in bookcase at the far end of the room.

You know, I never used to like antlers in decor like you see in this dining room chandelier. I thought the deer had to die in order to secure their antlers. But then I found out they’re naturally shed after mating season and a new pair grows before the next mating season. So now I appreciate the natural look an antler or two can provide, not to mention their romantic story.

Simple chests and wooden boxes provide storage areas for blankets and more. A berried branch and large horse print give a nod to nature. There’s not a lot of stuff and oftentimes less is more, creating a stronger visual statement.

Orange walls liven up a butler’s pantry tucked behind a Dutch door. It’s details like this that make a home unique.

The eclectic farmhouse has all the mullioned windows that I love. Windows are important and I think they’re very telling about the quality of a home. We have a new subdivision in our town and most of the people are complaining about their cheap windows.

A casual family room features the second stone fireplace in the eclectic farmhouse with its abundance of windows and details like built-in bookcases.

The bedrooms are clean and uncluttered which creates a more restful experience. I love the upholstered headboard with duck fabric – similar to the decoy ducks seen in the living room.

  1. Love this home. Understated and wonderful. My New Year resolution is to de-clutter my home and my wardrobe. Thank you for the photos.

  2. I’m not a fan of using animal parts, whether they have to be killed in order to get them or not. I think it diminishes the animal itself to use it for decor. I feel the same about the animal skin rugs – I don’t want to walk on the skin of an animal, even if it is faux. It’s just a thing with me …..
    And I agree with the person who commented above – your home and your obvious love of farm animal decor in artwork and natural accessories is much better done and is always respectful.

  3. De-clutter is also in my 2020 list of things to do. I want to go through all my Christmas, Easter and Halloween decorations and purge. When my kids were younger I had so much stuff and now that they are teens I don’t have the toy clutter I want to take it one step further and de-clutter every room. It will cut down on cleaning time and over all just have a cleaner feel.
    I love your home…keep the pictures coming they are so inspirational.
    Happy, healthy New Year to all!

  4. I agree with the previous posts regarding the use of animal parts.. To me, it gives off a vibe of not being welcoming to animal lovers.

  5. I never thought about the feeling someone would have seeing a house with animal parts displayed. I think the antlers are so pretty to look at. They are so sculptural and graceful. What a pretty home!
