Typical farmhouse items include white and tan color schemes and a mixture of natural fabrics like burlap and woven baskets along with dark metals. In the kitchen specifically, you’ll want décor to be versatile and functional in addition to beautiful, both because kitchen space is valuable and because people spend a lot of time preparing, cooking, hosting and eating in the hub of the house.
Here are 13 farmhouse décor items perfect for your rustic kitchen aesthetic.
1. Stonebriar Farmhouse picnic basket
A picnic basket is a versatile item that can serve as decoration and also as a container.

The canvas interior hides your less visually appealing items while still looking cohesive with your space. The basket is made with chicken wire and has handles, a hinged lid on each side, and a heart decal in the center that softens the look.
