Final Thoughts…

Farmhouse decor curtains are full of character and charm, and whether you live in a traditional farmhouse in the country, or a more modern home in the City, you can easily bring a touch of country charm to your home with farmhouse style drapes.

Both patterns and solid colors can look great with farmhouse decor, so think about the other elements of your room before choosing your curtains. 

If your room is fairly neutral then patterned curtains can be just the finishing touch you need. If your room already has a lot going on then opting for sheer curtains in a plain color can complete the look perfectly.
