Decorating on a budget is something that most of us are pretty familiar with, myself included. As an Interior Decorator and Home Stager, I work with clients almost daily in some stage of decorating, and the budget is almost always at the top of the list. So, I decided to create a Farmhouse Style Living Room utilizing Target exclusively for the furnishings and decor.
It’s a fictional space, there is no flesh and blood client I’m working for. But, that makes it more fun for me! I can select the pieces that I think speak to the style, are interesting together (I’m not one to use matching end tables) and create a unique look.
Why use Target furnishings and finishes? I am finding that this retailer is working very hard to create affordable home furnishings that are also stylish and, depending on the price point, well made. As with everything else in life, you really do ‘get what you pay for’. So, a $400 sofa is not going to stand up to the test of time as well as a $1,400 sofa. But depending on how it’s going to be used, it could be the perfect purchase for you!

I will say, though, that the case goods I’ve purchased at Target, and they are many, can be just as well made as pieces purchased from a local furniture store. Again, it depends on the price point.
This Farmhouse Style Living Room includes seating, case goods, lighting, area rug and decorative accents. The image at the top of the post shows all of the pieces I selected for our space.
You may notice that a couple of the pieces have an industrial look to them…I did that purposely to bring in a touch of a different element.
So let’s get to the details, shall we?

Farmhouse Style Living Room on a Budget
The Copenhagen Sofa is a timeless style that can fit into many different types of decorating schemes. That’s why I love it. Straight lines, a slight roll to the arm, no skirt. The pieces that are put with the sofa are what transitions it into a Farmhouse Style piece.
I love the detail, especially the hardware, on this Barn Door TV stand, perfect for the Farmhouse Style space we’re creating. The fireplace (electric, of course) adds some cozy to the space, and it fits in well with our style. By the way, this piece is also offered with shelves instead of a fireplace.
This Freeland Arm Chair is a flexible piece. It can be used in a variety of styles and also rooms in the home. The skirted style is what can move it right into our Farmhouse Style Living Room…it takes the contemporary edge off of the piece. I like the higher arms, too.
Updated: Similar Style Armchair (Taupe)
Every Farmhouse Style home needs a comfy chair, and this Conway Wing Back fits the bill! Nothing formal or stuffy in this pretty piece. I love the slope and curve of the arm, and the dusty blue fabric is a beautiful compliment to the neutrals on the sofa and accent chair.
Wood and iron are elements that we want in our Living Room, and I love the styling on this Vennilux Round End Table (well, I love the little birdies, too, but they don’t come with!) Introducing a round shape works well with the other pieces in the space.
Distressed wood top and forged look to the iron legs of this Coffee Table fit well into our Farmhouse Style plan, don’t they? Notice how the tones of the wood compliment the other wood pieces in this space. The style and construction of the table also keep things from getting too boxy or chunky looking.
This Harvester End Table has a sturdy look to it, but not too visually heavy. The strong construction style fits right into our Farmhouse Style Living Room, and compliments the media cabinet nicely.
This 5×7 Solana Area Rug has just enough tribal pattern to add some dimension to the room. You could stay with a rustic style rug and that would be fine, too. I wanted to add something a bit different on the floor that doesn’t compete with the Farmhouse Style, and keeps things from being too predictable.
I love this floor lamp! Vintage industrial that can work in so many different style settings. It’s a wonderful, functional piece for our Farmhouse Style Living Room
Baiter Table Lamp – Updated: Similar Style from Walmart
Perfect style for our rustic space, the base of this table lamp reminds me of a birdcage…in a good way!
I love the texture, tufting and soft blush color of this accent pillow. Texture is so important!
A hint of blue, more texture and pattern offset the other accent pillows nicely.
The lattice pattern of this pillow echoes the doors on the media cabinet…nice!
So, here is our Living Room again, with all of our pieces that fit into the overall Farmhouse Style look. We’ve been decorating on a budget using furnishings and decor from Target.
How did we do? Well, this Farmhouse Style Living Room from Target can be yours for about $3,000 + tax. Not bad! If you’re willing to have deliveries to your door, or pick up at the store, and put together some case goods, you can have a look like this in your home!
No room is really complete without the decorative accents, and our Living Room furnished by Target is no exception!
I selected a variety of options with rustic, modern Farmhouse appeal, from our friends at Kirklands, to give a feel for how the space could be finished out.
In fact, I like a few of these curated selections so well, I might put them in my own home 🙂
