Designing a vintage farmhouse living room without too much white was a bit of a challenge. Because this is more of a “curl up and watch a movie” room to our family, we decided to use this opportunity to try out dark walls and we chose a lovely navy paint color for this space. I’m loving the concept of a darker, more masculine space as a contrast to some of our brighter rooms. I think it’ll work since we have the same vintage inspired style throughout (because this is an old farmhouse after all!)

Vintage Inspired Gallery Wall
I may have spent the past year stocking up on antique frames, vintage paintings, and beautiful prints to hang in our living room… I love the idea of a gallery around the TV. Giant TVs can just look out of place in old houses, but arranging it within a gallery helps it blend in better especially if the wall behind it is dark.
I have a few antique paintings and signs, but those can get pricey so my other gallery pieces include vintage map prints (like this one of South Carolina where my husband and I got married), vintage etchings, classic painting reproduction prints (I LOVE the gorgeous light and colors of antique artwork!), old book plates, and of course a dash of something modern like the a beautiful bison print.
