Singing the Blues with Blue Farmhouse Style

While I love white as the wall color in my house, I think blue in all shades makes the perfect companion to white in farmhouse style, so let’s take a look at some of them that “sing the blues” beautifully!

Blue Farmhouse Style

Farmhouse Blue Projects and Printable you'll love! -

When I think of farmhouse blues, of course one of the first things that pops into my mind are mason jars.  I pick these up every chance I get a flea markets and auctions.  My favorite one is large, and I added a dispenser on the lid to hold dish soap.

The next thing that comes to mind is well worn denim.  This Denim Wall Pocket took about 5 minutes to make (it’s no-sew!) and looks so charming with a mason jar inside to hold flowers.

One of my son’s names is Levi, so my mom used a bunch of old pairs of jeans to make him a Denim Quilt.  He’s lucky I haven’t swiped it from him, because I love it.

My very favorite blue is the Barn Quilt one of my son’s helped me make last summer.  I’m hoping I can talk him into helping me make another one this summer with a different design on it.

I love these Printable Vintage Postcards.  While you could print them and send them in the mail, they can also be printed and framed as a grouping for wall decor.

I bought bag full of Blue Bird Flour last month – not because I needed flour, but because I fell in love with the image on it.

I spotted this incredibly beautiful rustic door last year when I visited Santa Fe.  I would love to have a front door like that!

    Wow I love blue and these were great ideas for my home. Thank you. ✝

  2. Well, there is a post full of wonderful inspiration! Thanks for sharing, Angie!

  3. Blue has always been incorporated into my home because The color calms and cheers me! I love the pictures you shared. However, it was even more fun to wake up to your Singing the Blues headline because it’s the slogan for the foundation my family started in honor of my dad. It just put a smile on my face. Thank you for sharing! I’m new to your site and am enjoying your posts. Much love from Team Tom at The Tom Lennon Foundation. ?

    I really enjoyed your post. I am SO envious of your blue Mason jars. I only own 1 that my father in law gave me. They are hard to come by here in New Mexico. At least I haven’t been lucky enough to find any. Ha ha! I’m really singing the blues! Great post Angie!

    • What part of New Mexico are you in, Helene? ABQ and Corrales are my old “stomping grounds”!

        I live in Grants. Between Albuquerque and Gallup. No wheresville. We’re only an hour away from Albuquerque so we shop there. A LOT. I also have a sister who lives in Rio Rancho.

  7. Love that blue swing you made! It’s my favorite!

  8. Wow! What an awesome post! Thanks so much.

  9. What color is the farmhouse door blue?
