Celebrating Americana in Home Décor

Americana design celebrates our heritage by reflecting the lifestyle and values of the American family. It’s homegrown, casual and kid- and pet-friendly. It’s farmhouse, industrial, rustic, nautical and primitive. Sometimes it’s a combination of all five. The best part is that it’s versatile, classic and stylishly understated because it’s approachable.

Celebrate your patriotism by bringing home Americana style. Here are five characteristics to look for:

1. Modern Farmhouse

First up is Modern Farmhouse, a design that is quite popular today thanks to Joanna Gaines and Fixer Upper. The “modern” slant includes sophisticated details and chic accents. Kitschy pieces, like roosters, are replaced with sleek accessories, like white pitchers and window frames. And shiplap is a staple.

2. Industrial

Next, is Industrial. This home design look gets a nod from America’s work ethic because it uses raw materials that include iron, steel and reclaimed wood. The look celebrates the industrial revolution, giving rooms lots of character and texture as well as a sense of history.

3. Rustic

Another design is Rustic, which gets a fresh twist with weathered wood and metal details. The look is inspired by nature because it uses materials in the great outdoors. Rooms also feature comfortable furnishings and minimal fuss. Rustic Americana meshes the indoors with the outdoors, inviting you to kick back and relax.
