 Giant Farmhouse Signs

These giant board signs can add a dramatic touch to crisp white walls. The "market" sign is perfect for any dining room, kitchen, or pantry wall decor.

This is a great way to combine a large sign and the addition of a mirror. Large mirrors can help the room to look bigger and is an ideal add on to a smaller dining room.

Like the market sign, a large coffee sign is an adorable way to accessorize the wall above your beverage cart. Not into morning brew? Swap it for a tea version to fit your needs.

Add an Indoor Wreath

Who says wreaths can only go on the wrong door? There's a new trend bringing the seasonal and year-round wreaths indoors.

This burlap wreath is a great touch for a farmhouse dining room all year round or can be used as a seasonal touch in the fall. The autumn tones in this floral arrangement really add to the color scheme.

This simple, thin wreath is a great way to add a touch of color to the kitchen without being too much. For the basic white kitchen, a delicate touch of color can add a bit of softness to the space.

Loving the green wreath on top of this glass pantry door. We couldn't decide what we adored most - the wreath or the large farmhouse sign, but this is definitely a winning look!

If you noticed some of our other top pics, wreaths above the stove is an awesome way to add some color or greenery to a simple, white kitchen. Also, loving the sign, "happiness is homemade."

Pops of Color in the Kitchen

We have so many white kitchen - where's the color? Check out these awesome ideas!

This colorful backsplash is such a fun way to try different wall tiles in the kitchen. What we love most? The way the color matches the cabinets on the center island. Gorgeous!

Don't want to paint the whole wall? Why not add a dramatic pop of color on by painting the pantry door in your kitchen? The wreaths also help to bring out the green tones without adding anything else to the space.

You can also be bold by painting the wall a beautiful, bright color. We love the colorful art work that perfectly matches the wall color and added accessories on the tabletops.

More green tones! Loving the way this family painted the pallets on this island cabinet to bring color into the otherwise white space. Can we also mention - the hanging kitchen sign is pretty great too.

The hanging wooden cutting boards are wonderful! You can hang the ones you use regularly or pick up some old ones at a thrift or antique store.

Who says signs need to hang on the wall? This adorable block hangry side is the cutest way to add something extra onto the countertops or a center island.

This is another cute decorating idea with the cutting board, but what we adore most is the cook book! A clever cookbook can be a great way to decorate a countertop instead of using a framed photo.

The hanging baskets on this dining room wall add a unique storage and display option for room in the house. This is a unique way to paint the crate, with the white paint on the outside and the raw wood on the inside.

Add Some Greenery

We love the way these designers have added foliage and floral arrangement to their kitchens and dining rooms in a unique way.

This is a great way to do something with the space above your tall kitchen cabinets - add a little foliage to brighten up the space. It looks great and it's better than dust.

Loving this gather sign? Grab this great addition here.

Did you see the foliage in this one? It's hanging on the light fixture above the table. So clever! We also loved the pop of color with these light blue chairs.

Okay, this one isn't so green, but there's a lot of foliage happening! This autumn take is lovely, with the hanging leaves over the cabinet adding a beautiful display of fall colors.

This kitchen has little pops of green all over the place, which is such a gorgeous and subtle way to add some outdoor love to an indoor space. We also adore the dramatic tile here.

This was my favorite place to find foliage - on the top of this adorable cow head. This is such a fun way to add to a farmhouse style kitchen and we're digging the autumn inspiration in this space.
