One of the most noteworthy characteristics of the farmhouse style is the white painted wood-paneled walls. Distinguished by stacked panels of painted white wood, the boards add texture to the room and can easily accommodate different types of decorations. While white is a popular color for farmhouse walls and paneling details, a neutral color palette incorporating cream, light grey, or beige can complement the look as well. The white wood look can be incorporated into wooden furniture such as ceilings, shelving, cabinets, and even bathroom vanities. Wood-paneled walls also integrate well with accents like traditional or folksy wallpaper, which also compliment the farmhouse style.
