At one time or another, everyone dreams of owning a one-hundred-year-old farmhouse with shiplap walls and a big wrap-around porch. The nostalgia and comfort invoked by farmhouse decor are almost universally appealing. Unsurprisingly, it has increased in popularity in recent years, and the neutral colors and inclusion of rustic antiques make it easy to live with style.
