Do You Like Farmhouse Touches Into Your Home

When they first called it “the holiday season,” they really should have thought about naming it “the cozy season” instead. With November comes promises of stuffing and pumpkin pie, and our attention naturally turns to everyone’s favorite holiday for eating and gathering—Thanksgiving.

There are aspects of Thanksgiving that can admittedly feel a bit stressful: aligning schedules so that all the family members can attend, perfecting that cranberry sauce recipe, taking time off from work, even though that stack of papers looms on your desk.

But at the heart of Thanksgiving, there are the big things that overcome those little things–togetherness, warmth, and love.

And you can set the scene for this snug, sweet occasion, wrapping in farmhouse touches throughout your home’s décor. Farmhouse is a design style that easily lends itself to simpler times and nostalgic feelings of home. Through vintage treasures (with maybe a family heirloom or two woven in), soft, delicate neutrals, comforting fabrics and textiles and of course, plenty of autumnal details, you can create a bygone atmosphere that will make your guests feel truly welcomed and at ease.

Here, you’ll find 10 inspiring ideas for turning your house into a farmhouse this Thanksgiving.
A quote or beloved phrase is a creative way to greet your Thanksgiving guests as they walk in the door. You can use a roll of butcher paper and twine to display these words, perhaps trying your hand at calligraphy, or keeping it easy by using your familiar, everyday handwriting. Your kids can even get in on this, asking them to write some pleasant words on the paper as well.
