Classic Finds + Design: Farm-Fresh Style
With autumn just around the corner, it’s time to start gathering goods to create a fabulous fall look in your home. Wander the bucolic grounds at Kelsey Creek Farm (Bellevue, 410 130th Pl. SE; 425.452.7688; firstname.lastname@example.org), and you’ll be inspired by the simple pleasures of farmhouse style.
Eager to bring some rural charm to your abode? Start with a few country-inspired classics, such as a lovely red Gilbert Armchair by Ethan Allen (multiple locations, including Redmond, 2209 Bel-Red Road; 425.641.3133; ethanallen.com) and a black-and-gray painted plank-top table from Lodge Podge (Snohomish, 916 First St.; 360.563.9800; shoplodgepodge.com). Next, add some authentic accents, such as an Antique American side table and captivating carved wooden pig, both from Rosa Mundi’s recently expanded store and design studio (Woodinville, 14525 148th Ave. NE; 425.806.1732; rosamundis.com). A 19th-century glass oil lamp from Haystack Antiques (Bellevue, 144 105th Ave. NE; 425.455.1515; haystackantiques.com) complements any farm-style spread. Visionary shopkeeper Ted Kennedy Watson hand selects divine vintage artwork and accessories for his stupendously stocked Watson Kennedy boutiques, including charming farm-fresh framed watercolors and a sublimely simple wooden tool caddy (Downtown, 1002 First Ave.; 206.652.8350; watsonkennedy.com).
Finally, bring a hint of harvest to your ensemble with Rosa Mundi’s wirework basket and woven wall pocket and a copper bucket from the Smith & Hawken collection at Target (multiple locations; target.com).
With a touch of farm-inspired decor, any home can be country chic. Happy fall, y’all!
