The color WHITE! You may have noticed that bedrooms in most farmhouse styles homes have a very light and airy feeling. You often find white walls, white furniture, and sometimes even white floors. Using white as the main color in a room creates a clean and bright look. Do not forget to use contrasting colors in these spaces though.
