Lovely Prairie Style

Happy Friday, friends! Today I'd like to welcome Jenn to Honeycomb Creative Co. She has some fabulous tips on creating lovely prairie style. My fave!

Hiya! My name is Jenn and I'm a writer for Arcadian Lighting, which is an e-commerce website that specializes in top lighting ideas around the world. I'm a fan of anything shabby chic. I love quilts, I drool over Jonathan Adler, and I swoon over beautiful light fixtures. I turn to great home decor blogs for both work and play, and a personal fave is Honeycomb Creative Co, where the posts, pictures, and ideas are always fresh and new. I'm thrilled to be writing here today, so thanks for having me! Sweet and simple, lovely prairie style is all the rage right now. Breezy colour palettes, delicate patterns, nature-inspired accents, all culminating to create traditional spaces that are beautiful in their own rite. A few delicate light fixtures such as pendant lights or wall sconces will complete the look. Take a look at these eight spaces that will make everyone fans of lovely prairie style.
Room Decor

A white slat roof, whitewashed antique furniture, and a myriad of eclectic accessories make this casual sitting room the epitome of lovely prairie style.

Bedroom Decor

Sometimes two different motifs, such as white and yellow stripes along with the rosebud patterns seen here, come together wonderfully in a bedroom.

Bedroom Decor

Hand-sewn quilts as well as blue and white china are a nod to the simplicities of eras past - they're the perfect showpieces in this country bedroom.

Kitchen Decor

The appliances in this kitchen may look like antiques but they're actually modern-day models encased in vintage frames. The black marble countertops complement the eggshell cabinetry.

Dining Room Decor

A chandelier ceiling light is a sophisticated accent piece over this aged prairie-style dining room table and mismatched chairs.

Living Room Decor

While the quilting and wood may be a reminiscent of traditional prairie trends, the bamboo cabinet and seashell lamp are unique and fun today.

Kitchen Decor

This corner kitchen features open shelving to eliminate the clutter of closed-off cupboards. The all-white colour palette is clean and simplified.

Kitchen Decor

Not only does this kitchen have all the necessary luxuries but it also boasts some distinct niceties, like a built-in bench, exposed ceiling beams, and double-sized windows.
