MODERN FARMHOUSE STAPLE: 

THE ANTIQUE BLACK BED (PART 2)

MagnoliaRealityJoannaGaines

Here are my picks for the 20 Best (reproduction) Antique Black Beds to help you achieve your Modern Farmhouse master bedroom or guest bedroom style.   I tried to give as many options (different shapes, designs, styles, & sizes) as possible.   I have options for king-sized beds, queen or full-sized beds, twin beds, bunk beds, and daybeds.

  • No. 1 = bed frames with clean lines
  • No. 2 = bed frames with curves
  • No. 3 = bed frames with spindles
  • No. 4 = bed frames with panels
  • No. 5 = bed frames with fabric
  • No. 6 = bed frame with designs
  • No. 7 = bed frames with scrolls

I hope that there is at least one style (or 2, or 3 – haha!!) for everyone.  If not, let me know.  I’d love to help make your shopping experience easier.   ***TIP*** This is a perfect time of the year to get your guest room ready (for Christmas guests) so that you don’t have to stress out when November rolls around.  And it’s never a bad idea to give an early Christmas present to well — yourself!!  LOL – Happy Shopping!!  Just click on the link (“click here”) on the top of each picture if you want more info on each bed.

***NOTE***  Some of the beds may be rubbed black or dark bronze (just wanted to give you a heads up when searching.  Both colors will still achieve the dark frame color).

5 Secrets for Fall Decorating

So you are pulling out your fall boxes out of the attic, and wondering if THIS is the year you can have that beautiful fall home that you see all over pinterest.  ANYONE??  enter eye roll here – right??  Their homes always look so perfect:  with their perfectly inviting living room, their most welcoming entryway/foyer, and their fabulous entertaining dining room, blah blah blah!!!  But yet….. their homes STILL make you want to jump through the screen and lounge in front of their fireplace,  or sit on their adorable entryway bench, or eat at their dining table.  So how do they do this…..THEY already know the 5 Secrets for Fall Decorating:  they DECORATE THE 5 SENSES!!  Well, how do you do that?  Stick around so I can share the main tools (the secrets) to get that beautiful fall home you’ve always wanted.

FIVE SECRETS FOR FALL DECORATING

  • SECRET #1 – NOSE
  • SECRET #2 – EYES
  • SECRET #3 – TOUCH
  • SECRET #4 – MOUTH
  • SECRET #5 – EARS

 


***First things first:  the good thing about fall decorating is that it should be very simple and understated to be the most effective.  You do NOT have to go all out to make a beautiful fall home.  You simply pick and choose the things that remind YOU of fall, or childhood memories, or granny’s favorite dish, etc…that create the environment that works best for you.  Make it personal, tell a story….. fall decorating is all about YOU (well or maybe your husband too – lol) ***

***And secondly:  decorating for fall is a little different than some of the other seasons because it evokes ALL OF THE 5 SENSES.  So what in the world does that mean?  It means that the reason you want to lounge by the fireplace,  or sit on the entryway bench, or eat at the table in those other homes, is because they create a mood, a feeling, a setting that arouses the senses.  You want to be there because they created an inviting space that lures you in.  And that is why you FALL (haha!!)  in love with their homes. So, how do you do it?

SECRET #1:  NOSE

The sense of smell is by far the most important part of fall decorating.  If someone were to walk into your home with a blindfold on, there should be NO mistake that they know it is fall time. 

Use pumpkin spice, cinnamon, or sugar cookie candles in the kitchen, living room, and dining room.  Or try apple spice potpourri (in cute little wire containers), buttered pumpkin diffusers, or cinnamon pine cones to place in bathrooms or hallways.

And don’t forget about baked goods.  Besides baked goods smelling incredible anyway…. just placing the delicious-looking cookies, pies, and pastries out in the kitchen evoke the sense of smell.

  • candles
  • potpourri
  • pine cones
  • baked goods

SECRET #2:  EYES

Decorating for fall is all about colors, accessories, & fabrics that you associate with fall time conditions (cooler weather).  For example….what comes to mind when you first think of fall??  Maybe leaves falling from trees, temperatures beginning to cool off, fall festivals, and of course pumpkins?   So now you will pull from all of those ideas to create your decorating scene (environment).

Use darker colors:  golden/mustard yellows, cinnamon/spiced oranges, deep reds or burgundy, olive greens, deep teals, dark browns, rich purples, and black.

Choose accessories (that have words on them that you associate with fall events):  throw pillows that say “gather” or “autumn blessings,” pennant banners that say “thankful” or “happy harvest,” or wooden signs that say “hello fall,” or “hayrides $1.”  I even like to use football events (see tip below in “ears” section).

Incoporate fall fabrics: plaids, tweed & buffalo check; leopard prints, suede, & velvet;  fur, flannel & corduroy.  Just make sure to stay away from light colors or light-weight fabrics.  Want more buffalo check inspiration, click here.

And of course the more obvious decor:  fall flowers (mums, sunflowers, and nature-inspired wreaths); pumpkins, scarecrows and cornucopias.

***TIP***  just remember to choose the items that remind YOU of fall.***

  • warm colors:  mustard yellows, spiced oranges, deep (reds, greens, teals), dark browns and black
  • accessories with “fall – associated” words, such as “gather, blessed, or thankful”
  • heavier fabrics like plaid, buffalo check, darker colors
  • mums or sunflowers
  • nature- inspired wreaths
  • scarecrows & cornucopias

SECRET #3:  TOUCH/FEEL

When you see pictures of other houses you love….they make you feel warm and comfortable.  And how is this achieved – through texture.  Use throw blankets  and toss pillows that are made from cable-knit wool, fleece, fur or cashmere.   Want more shiplap inspiration, click here or here.

Rugs are another way to add texture.  Again stay with darker colors, wool or shag rugs to create warmth.

Don’t forget about woven baskets.  They are a great way to add texture and function.  Use them to store blankets, pillows, magazines, & firewood.

Hay bales provide a lot of texture also.  Just popping in a couple of hay bales to an area creates a perfect little vignette- without a ton of thought.  If you don’t want the mess, keep in in the plastic it comes in.

  • throw blankets
  • toss pillows
  • rugs
  • woven baskets
  • hay bale

SECRET #4:  TASTE

Taste can go in a lot of different directions.  This involves putting things out that you associate with food/drinks or dining.  (Like your kitchen or dining room).  Use items that you associate with eating, especially “fall foods/drinks.”   What??  Stay with me here.

DRINKS:

Use coffee mugs/tea cups in “fall” colors in your table decoration or leave out and make a small coffee/tea/hot chocolate bar.    Coffee, hot tea, and hot chocolate are warm drinks, and people automatically associate these drinks with “hot” temperature.  I’ve heard soooo many people tell me that they can’t drink “hot” coffee in the summer time because it makes them HOTTER just looking at it – what???!!!  So they choose iced coffees, iced teas, frappuccinos, etc….  So, I am telling you….it works!!  Put some cute mugs out girl- you’ll get it!!

FOOD:

Same for baked goods (like I mentioned above)….sprinkle them around your kitchen/dining room.  Add them to cake plates, or fall-themed “gather” serving platters/trays.

Don’t forget about fruits and vegetables as well.  Apples and pumpkins are associated with warm baked pies, or use gourds, cranberries, and squash to associate with thanksgiving dinners.  The great thing about using fruits and vegetables is that they are inexpensive and provide a ton of natural color.  Plus, they just happen to be the colors that we associate with warmth- win-win!!!

***TIP*** S’mores is another fall favorite of mine!!  It reminds me of  fall, fun, & family time.   So try to make some this fall – you (& your kiddos) will NOT be disappointed!!

 

  • coffee/hot chocolate mugs, tea cups
  • baked goods:  cookies, pies, pastries
  • fruits & vegetables:  apples, cranberries, pumpkins, gourds, & squash
  • s’mores

SECRET #5:  EARS

There is nothing more soothing than listening to wood crackling in the fireplace on a chilly autumn night – am I right??  Just lighting the wood makes you want to snuggle on the couch with warm blankets, play your favorite movie, and sip on hot cocoa (or maybe some wine – LOL), as the stress of your day melts away.   And why do you feel this way?  Well, it’s because you associate the burning of wood in a fireplace with warmth, relaxation, and a sense of togetherness.  It’s a place where family and friends come to gather for a night of s’mores & game night (if you have kiddos) or for hors d’oeuvres & drinks (if you’re having an adult party).   So it makes perfect sense to “dress” up your fireplace and hearth during fall time, and make both of these decorated focal points.

Use garland or pennant banners on the mantel, and place some of you favorite candle sconces or flowers there as well.  But don’t forget the hearth (or base if you don’t have one).  Use baskets or metal bins to put cut firewood in (or extra throw blankets and pillows), add a fireplace tools set, and square floor cushions and poufs for extra seating.  Make it c-o-z-y!!!  Can you hear the wood crackling already??!!

FOOTBALL:

***This is a personal favorite for my house for fall decorating, but I wanted to add it to this section.  Football (both professional & college) is another event/sound that reminds me of fall.   HUH??  What I mean is that I love the sound of the the band playing during college football games, and the announcers/fans cheering for their teams, and even the smacking around of helmets.

So…… this is another way I decorate for fall (because it’s a pretty big deal here at the Prothro house). So, if this is something you love also, pull out all things football to decorate with during fall time.  Use hand towels, spoon rests, mugs, wreaths, throw blankets, signs, and more.  If it makes YOU happy, then use it!!  It is YOUR house, and personalizing it is what makes it a home :)***

  • firewood holder (baskets or metal)
  • garland
  • floor pillow or pouf
  • fireplace tools set
  • football accessories:  hand towels, spoon rests, mugs, wreaths, throw blankets, signs

Master Bed Frame Makeover – Painted White

So, we have finally moved back into our bedroom downstairs…..and I am so excited about how the entire bedroom turned out.  The  2 things that “make” the bedroom and create some drama are the navy accent wall, and the white bed frame.  And since I painted the bed, I thought it would be awesome to show you the technique if you want to change your bed also.    Here is my master bed frame makeover – painted white using the dry-brushed technique tutorial.  If you want a glazed or antiqued tutorial (like my nightstands)…..click  HERE.

MASTER BED FRAME MAKEOVER – PAINTED WHITE

Where did it all begin?

before…..

 

 

after…..

 


SUPPLIES NEEDED:  

primer – I used zinsser

white paint – I used Behr Swiss Coffee – Home Depot

clear wax – I used trewax

paint brush – I prefer 2″ angled (angled gets into the grooves better)

150-grit sandpaper or sponge -to distress bed

large boxes (heavy or weighted) or piece of furniture – to hold headboard/footboard upright while painting

wooden blocks- to hold up (rest) feet of bed on

rags/old shirts – to wipe off wax

canvas dropcloth or plastic – to protect floor


STEP 1:  PRIMING

***For Dry-Brushed Method***

before…..

 

To Prime:

Put your primer on in long brush strokes, making sure not to cover your bed in a solid paint color.  See below.

 

Closeup……

Full view……

 

Do the same technique for footboard and side rails if you have them.

 

 

 

 

 

*** LET PRIMER DRY OVERNIGHT***


STEP 2 – PAINTING (1ST COAT)

Put your first coat of white paint over primer in long brush strokes again, but this time covering more of the wood.

 

 

BELOW:  left side painted….right sight primed

 

You should be able to notice that the paint covers better than the primer, and it should feel thicker as you brush it on.  Just make sure NOT to cover the wood completely.  You should still be able to see brush strokes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

BELOW:  PICTURE OF 1ST COAT PAINTED

 

***LET DRY OVERNIGHT***


STEP 3:  PAINT 2 MORE COATS

BELOW:  Headboard 3 coats, Footboard 2 coats.  Can you tell how the headboard has more coverage on it than the footboard?

***TIP***  This is the stage/step where I go back and add in some paint to cover certain areas that do no look as even.  This is just personal preference for me.  

***LET DRY OVERNIGHT***


STEP 4:  PUT CLEAR WAX ON

Now you can put on your wax, let dry, and rag/buff off.  Put on more coats of wax if you want a shinier finish- just fyi.


STEP 5:  SAND/DISTRESS

Use your 150-grit sandpaper or sponge and gently sand over random areas where you want some original wood to show.  I like my sanded areas to be over the ornate “leaves” sections to accent the details, and then over the corners where the bed would naturally get “bumped”.  I also added some sanded areas in the middle sections of the headboard and footboard to move the eye around.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

***OPTIONAL STEP***  WAX OVER SANDED AREAS.  I like to do this just to bring out the wood tone (the wax makes the wood tone darker for more contrast) against the white paint.  But of course, this is your bed, so it is your decison!!

 

AND….YOU……ARE…….DONE!!!  WOOHOO!! 

TIME TO PUT YOUR “NEW” BED INTO YOUR BEDROOM!!!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you love how your bed turns out….as much as I love mine!!  Let me know how your progress is going- or if you have any questions?  I would love to see some pictures of your bed too!!

I really feel like I got new furniture…without the high pricetag!!  Plus the white really lifts the room so much more than the stained brown color, and it gives me the contrast I need against the navy wall.  Don’t cha think ??

 

 

HAVE AN AWESOME WEEK!!  LOVE & HUGS 🙂

DIY Nightstand Makeover: Painted White with Dark Top

Give nightstands an instant makeover with paint, white bottom, black top, oil.-rubbed bronze hardware.

Have you been wanting new nightstands in your master or guest bedroom, but can’t seem to pull the trigger because your “old ones”….well… they’re still good??!! I mean…..they aren’t terrible or anything (well maybe), but they are definitely not the style or look you are going for?? Yep….get in line.  It’s really difficult to drop several hundred dollars for something you already own…but just have grown tired of.   So, what’s a girl to do???  I found myself in the same dilemma.   I really couldn’t alter the style on these bad boys (and I soooo would have), but at least I could do something about the look.   If you find yourself in a similar situation (enter in a little paint, glaze, & some extra time out of your schedule), and you can change your nightstands too.  DIY Nightstand Makeover:  Painted White with Dark Top.  So, let’s refresh those “oldies, but goodies” nightstands of your’s and give them the makeover they deserve!!  *** I used latex paint on these, but you could use chalk paint, and just skip some of my first steps ***

Here is the Behr Whites Collection (brochure) from Home Depot   I just wanted to show you what Behr Swiss Coffee looks like with other “whites.”

Since whites have a hint of another color added – you can see the subtle shades of yellows, browns, grays, greens, etc in the picture…. that is what the undertone looks like.

I see a hint of pink…what do you see?

 

 

 

 

 

 


STEP 1 – REMOVE HARDWARE (AND TAPE- as needed)

Take hardware off, and put to the side for now.  I had to tape off my marble top, but you will not need this step if you have a wooden top until STEP 4.

 


STEP 2 – SAND

Tear off a small square from the 150 sandpaper sheet (or sponge), and sand the nightstands and drawers.  You don’t have to sand a lot, just enough to get some of the topcoat off.  You can see in the pictures below the light yellow color…..that’s the what the topcoat looks like when sanded.  Wipe off the dust with a clean rag.  If it has a lot of grooves like mine, blow the dust off or use a vaccuum to get the hard-to-reach dust particles.  *** If using chalk paint, skip to step 4. ***

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


STEP 3 – PRIME

Put your canvas drop cloth down, and set up your wooden blocks first.  (As you can tell from my garage….I no longer put a drop cloth down.  But you should -LOL ).  I primed these using the Zinnser primer – one coat only.  I did not completely paint these solid with the primer, so it will have some brush marks in it.   This is my personal preference.  (It makes more grooves like real wood would have, instead of a flat, smooth finish). Also prime the portion between the drawers and sides of where the drawers slide in…..see pictures below..  Let Dry Overnight.

***TOP PORTION TIP***  If you have a wooden top, prime it also.

***If using chalk paint, skip to step 4***

Make sure you fill in ALL crevices if you want to do the glazing/waxing part.

And prime the drawers….paint in horizontal (longways) brush strokes .

Prime your TOP section last.

STEP 4 – PAINT WHITE

For this part I used latex paint Behr Swiss Coffee – one coat.  You can use chalk paint. (If you use chalk paint, do 2 coats of paint. )

The one coat of latex paint should cover more than just the primer.  You can see below LEFT that the corner section is painted, but the side is primed.  In the picture on the RIGHT it is completely painted.  Let Dry Overnight before glazing. 

***TIP*** Let Dry 4 hours before adding black paint to TOP ***  (I did not have this step, but wanted to make sure you let the white paint dry before adding black paint to top).

***STEP 4.5 – PAINT TOP BLACK***

Paint top with black paint (your choice) to get the dark top, white bottom two-toned look like mine.  It will go over primer.  How many coats?  One coat – if you want a charcoal- grayish look.  Two coats – if you want a darker black look.

***TIP*** Be careful not to drip black paint on your white sections 😉

Let All Dry Overnight.

 


STEP 5 – SAND

Use that same 150 grit sandpaper sheet/sponge and sand around edges of nightstand feet, corners of drawers, and a couple of random areas that would get more wear and tear. I also sanded my drawers in a horizontal direction to create lines on my drawers.  I like a messier look to my furniture, so it is your choice.

***TIP*** If you have a wooden top, sand around the edges in corner spots, and then on the top piece if you want a more distressed look.

***TIP*** Do not sand (leave solid) if you want a clean, smooth top.

STEP 6 – GLAZE

I used the Rust Oleum Java Brown Glaze, and put it on with a 3rd paint brush or glaze/wax brush.  (You could use the Howard Dark Oak wax or another dark wax here if you prefer another color.)  This java brown has a golden tone in it, and it was the “look” that I needed for this painting method.  Work in small sections….I chose a portion of the side panel first.  Brush it on quickly – cover it all– then quickly rub off in small circular strokes with your t-shirt rag (or old t-shirt if you have one).  These t-shirts are nice and soft and take off the perfect amount of glaze without leaving “scratch” marks.  Let Dry Overnight.

FYI *** I did not wax first before I put my glaze on….like I normally would ***  This is so the glaze actually changes the color of the paint – see picture 2 below.

***TIP*** Glaze the TOP section (on top of black) LAST.  The glaze will soften the black and give it a bronze look (black-brown-golden)*** 

Need a DIY nightstand makeover? Try this tutorial: painted white with dark top in 10 steps.

 

The pictures below – right one is glazed, left one has not been done yet.  You can see the “golden” tint here on right.

STEP 7 – CLEAR WAX

Using your yellow sponge, get a little clear wax and begin to wipe wax on with circular motions.

***TIP*** After I put the wax on, I very lightly go over it with the sponge in straight lines, so that it does not dry in the circular patterns.  The wax dries in about 15 mins, so try to put the wax on in small sections.  You will notice that some of the glaze is coming off a little, and that is normal.

Need a DYI nightstand makeover? Try this tutorial: painted white with dark top in 10 steps.

 

Once you do finish the first nightstand, go ahead and wax the other nightstand, drawers, and tops.

*** Immediately after you finish everything, take a new, clean rag and wipe everything down.

***TIP*** You will begin to see a shine appear as you continue wiping.   At first, it will be more difficult to wipe (feels thick), but then will get easier as you are taking more wax residue off.  You are basically buffing your nightstands.

.Go ahead to the next step- You do not have to wait overnight for this step.

*** Put painter’s tape between top and sides before beginning next step. ***

 


STEP 8 – PAINT WHITE AGAIN

Go back and put another LIGHT paint coat on with your swiss coffee paint.  When you dip your brush into the can, don’t get a lot of paint on the brush.  Start with a smaller amount and paint over your waxed nightstand.  It will go on very smoothly because you just buffed it with your rag.

***TIP***  You can control how much paint you want to use to cover some of your glaze.  How much white do you want to show?  If you want your nightstands whiter, add more paint.  If you want a more glazed look, use less paint on this part.

FYI- I wanted mine to be whiter so it would look “aged” more naturally in the crevices.  Let Dry Overnight.

***TIP*** DO NOT GET WHITE PAINT ON YOUR BLACK TOP.  USE PAINTER’S TAPE TO HELP

 

Need a DIY nightstand makeover? Try this tutorial: painted white with dark top in 10 steps.

Can you tell how the bottom picture has a more “golden” tone than the top picture?  Keep adding paint until you get the shade you like.


STEP 9 – SAND

Lightly sand over those spots you have already sanded…..just enough to uncover some of those areas that might have been painted with the second coat.  Should just be a touch-up.  The top section does not need more sanding.


STEP 10 – CLEAR WAX

Do the clear wax one more time, and buff again.  Same as step 7.  Go ahead and take the painter’s tape off and wax the TOP section again.  It will need additional protection.


***SPRAYING THE HARDWARE***

Put down your plastic, and lie your hardware front side up on something to lift it up from the ground.  I always use some extra pieces of boards that I have left over from other projects.  Spray with the Oil Rubbed Bronze paint…..let dry at least 30 mins.  Turn upside down and spray back side….let dry 30 mins.  Turn back over to right side up again.  Let Dry Overnight or wait at least 2- 4 hours.  FYI – there is so much hardware because I was painting my dresser at the same time.  And it has a ton of hardware.  See below for a sneak peek of it.

Need a DYI nightstand makeover? Try this tutorial: painted white with dark top in 10 steps.

Now….go back and spray lightly one more time with the right side showing.  This is just a touch-up, but important to do.  Let dry for an hour and put back on your nightstands.

***TIP*** When you spray hardware….spray FOUR different directions.  Spray upward direction, downwards, right, and left.  The worst feeling it to THINK you are all done and patting yourself on the back….only to realize that half of the hardware didn’t get sprayed.  You then have to take the hardware off again, set up your prep area again, spray again, let dry again, and then put back on AGAIN!!  Trust me….it’s just worth the trouble to do it right the first time.  That is why I turn mine upside down….because you spray other angles that would not have gotten sprayed right side up!!  YOU ARE DONE MY FRIEND!!

MODERN FARMHOUSE STAPLE:  ANTIQUE BLACK BED (Part 1)

So, what is the skinny on this modern farmhouse antique black bed? 

There are two styles that show up in all modern farmhouse bedrooms:  1.  the wooden spool bed and 2.  the iron bed.

1)  The wooden spool bed– is named after a famous Swedish Opera Singer,  Johanna “Jenny” Maria Lind, born in Stockholm in 1820 (antiqueshoppefl.com).  She was a very popular singer in Europe, but didn’t come to tour in America until 1850 (antiqueshoppefl.com).  It was during this time in America that she began to favor the spool bed, and that is how it got it’s name (antiqueshoppefl.com).  But the story has a little twist.  Of the two pictures to the left, the bottom picture is actually the spool bed of that time, but the top picture is what has been “coined” (incorrectly) as the Jenny Lind bed (antiqueshoppefl.com).  So if you want to learn the true history of the Jenny Lind bed, click antiqueshoppefl.com.   This is a great article for all you antique lovers out there!!

2)   Iron beds were made in the USA and Europe, and were popular from the early 1800’s until about 1914 (cathousebeds.com). Production of iron beds came to a stop because of iron needed for World War I (cathousebeds.com) and the war efforts at that time. Once the war ended in 1918, styles changed, and iron bed frames were no longer cost effective (cathousebeds.com). It would take days for small furniture makers to make ONE hand-made iron bed. Cry- cry, sniff- sniff!! Thank goodness furniture companies have been able to build reproductions similar to the antique versions. If you want to learn more about the 8 iron bed frame styles, tubing, and castings ….. click cathousebeds.com. This company is incredible, and rich in knowledge and product!

As you scroll through the 35 Antique Black Bed pictures below, what catches your eye?  Are you a straight lines kind of girl/guy…..or do you like some curves?  Do you like the delicate lines or more masculine lines?  Wooden Spool or Iron?   ***This post will contain pictures of both iron & wooden, antique & reproduction, – black beds. ***

Here are the Find Your Style- FOUR Farmhouse Mood Boards (Part 1) broken down separately to make it easier for you.  This is the third style:  Farmhouse Rustic.  This style incorporates more earthy tones and rugged furnishings to create a sense of warmth and comfort.  It welcomes you in with a “no fuss- style” that creates a cozy environment.  The natural jute rug and floor pouf add texture and visual interest, and the colors remain neutral.  The metal black floor lamp, coffee table (on casters), and end table give a nod to the industrial vibe …. while the tin farmhouse sign and “blessed” pillow keep things from looking too maculine.  ***Need more inspiration?  Try Find Your Style:  Farmhouse Traditional, Farmhouse Coastal, or Farmhouse Chic. ***

Find Your Style- Farmhouse Coastal

Here are the Find Your Style- FOUR Farmhouse Mood Boards (Part 1) broken down separately to make it easier for you.  This is the second style:  Farmhouse Coastal.  This style incorporates more casual furnishings to keep the look airy and light, and to provide a more relaxed and comfortable vibe.  The colors remain neutral and mirror items found at the beach: sand, water and sky.  The jute rug and floor pouf add texture and visual interest, and the silver lamp bases add shimmer to mimic the reflection of the water.  The coffee and end tables are the perfect blend of these 2 styles:  the x-shape leans more farmhouse while painting them white leans more nautical.  The beach access pillow ties in the black and white from the farmhouse sign, and buffalo check pillows.  ***Need more inspiration:  try Farmhouse TraditionalFarmhouse Rustic, or Farmhouse Chic. ***
