Urban Farmhouse

Each year the Bachman’s Spring Ideas House marks the end of winter and welcomes  a season of warmer weather and beautiful spring colors.

The theme for the 2017 Spring Ideas House is Urban Farmhouse. This transformation from season to season takes place in the historic Bachman family home on Lyndale Avenue. Truly an urban farmhouse.

A neutral background palette allows the colorful spring florals and accessories to be  focal points throughout the home. If you’ve never been to an Ideas House the design team does an amazing job creating charming vignettes with new items, up cycled pieces, and vintage pieces.

Look for these key trends for 2017:

  • Fresh contemporary meets vintage permanence
  • Shades of grey against farm fresh white to create warm contrast
  • Floral Patterns and Ditsy Prints add dimension to our simple farmhouse decor
  • Galvanized metal and reclaimed wood used for accent and function
  • Botanical greens from dominant fiddle leaf figs to refined ferns
