Tips for Decorating a Rustic Farmhouse Dining Room
1. Select a Rustic Farmhouse Chandelier
When designing a room be sure to not overlook the light fixtures. The dining room chandelier sets the tone and style for the space. Here the rustic farmhouse chandelier beautifully defines the dining area within the open concept layout. Love industrial farmhouse elements? Make your own DIY rope chandelier with Lauren’s tutorial.
A special element to this dining room is the coordinating yet contrasting dining chairs. 6 cane-backed wood chairs flank the table while upholstered armchairs stand at the table’s ends. Cotton slipcovers will help you achieve a similar look without having to invest in brand new chairs. Have your own cane dining chairs you’re looking to revamp?

Farmhouse tables are definitely a home design trend that’s here to stay. After all, the dining table is what anchors the entire room. It can be difficult to determine the right size dining table to buy or DIY. Check out our exclusive guide to dining room table sizes for help!
Simplistic elegance comes to mind when it comes to these lovely place settings. White dishes contrast well with grey napkins. White dishes not your cup of tea? Create the same feel by flipping the colors using dark dishes with white napkins. The natural elements found in the dining table design are echoed nicely with jute chargers.
And last but not least, add the finishing touch to your tablescape with a lush leaf garland scattered with fruit. Eucalyptus or Magnolia leaf garlands are both Joanna-approved choices. Faux or fresh, you’re sure to make a statement.
