Farmhouse Kitchen with Rustic Decor & Sputnik Chandelier by Leanne Ford
Leanne Ford Inspired Decor Detail No. 1: Sputnik
Before we get into one more delicious decor detail, WE HAVE TO start with a source for a similar Sputnik chandelier very reminiscent (less lights on this one – and remember, you can opt for clear bulbs if you like. :)) of the one in this modern farmhouse kitchen with Mid-century modern style and rustic decor by Leanne Ford.
Leanne Ford Inspired Decor Detail No. 2: White on White
Notice how Leanne Ford boldly uses her signature white with the kitchen cabinets here, white window trim, white marble, and white subway tile. Is anyone calling the design police because she didn’t contrast the cabinets and counters?
Leanne Ford Inspired Decor Detail No. 3: No Island
There is something so heartwarming about a vintage style kitchen missing the giant modern day marble topped island, isn’t there? Leanne Ford has moved in a great big farm table, and it would appear there is not even enough room for chairs on both sides of this table. That’s more than a bit refreshing for me since I have the same issue in my wee kitchen dining area.
Leanne Ford Inspired Decor Detail No. 4: Sheepskin
This designer loves her some sheepy fuzzy wuzzy, and you’ll see sheepskin show up in a ton of her designs. They add femininity, warmth, and softness and are quite functional as well.
Leanne Ford Inspired Decor Detail No. 5: Subway Tile
Unless my eyes are failing me, the designer even took it to the ceiling on the dramatic yet simple range hood which is trimmed with knotty, natural wood. Go big or go home? I love taking tile all the way up the wall when possible for drama and ease.
Leanne Ford Inspired Decor Detail No. 6: Wire Chairs
Wire chairs show up in so many of her rooms as a signature element paired with country tables and rustic furniture, and they work so well when they are next to visually heavy pieces, yes? You don’t have to hunt vintage ones down anymore. Here’s a cool option:
Leanne Ford Inspired Decor Detail No. 7: Two Kitchen Sinks
If you have the room and the plumbing potential in your kitchen design, why not!?! My friend Tina (Enchanted Home) has a similar arrangement in her kitchen with a completely different design style.
Leanne Ford Inspired Decor Detail No. 8: No Window Coverings
I have the same bias when it comes to windows. If I can get away with no covering at all, I’m a happy camper. Curtains or blinds would change the look of this rustic modern farmhouse kitchen significantly, and who doesn’t appreciate all that light!?!
Peace to you right where you are.
