Over the last few years, flour, grain, and vintage potato sacks have made their way into the home decor, decorative accessories, and home furnishings mainstream. It’s a trend that continues to make itself right at home.
Steeped in less than perfect perfection with vintage and vintage looking charm and appeal, this home decor furnishings and accessories trend shows no signs of waning popularity. Things have moved far past Etsy and the DIY community as the lone embracers, starting and ending point, and sole source of antique and vintage textiles. Commanding style and good taste is always on trend and recognized by industry leaders. Case in point…

Hello, Gorgeous! Some things are so much better the second time around.
Decorative possibilities range from the rustic to the elegantly embellished with grain sacks. These reproduction French grain sacks are right on trend with their design, size, and affordability.
I love when the design and the execution beautifully line up with the decorative juxtaposition of pattern, texture, style, and periods. This Charleston, South Carolina dining room by interior designer Ginger Brewton as featured in Tradhome showcases authentic flour sack covered slipper chairs existing in elegant harmony with traditional decor touches. A strong testament to the stunning statement made when antiques and vintage accessories are paired in a union of comfortable formality.
Does it take you awhile to come to love certain trends or the decorative accents du jour? It does for me. I’m totally convinced this is the reason accent throw pillows and small accessories exist. It’s always advisable to introduce those not so sure items on a small scale with as few dollars invested at the beginning. Raise your hand if you’ve been known to jump into a project with decorative ideas and $$$ flowing to realize at projects end this isn’t working. Yep, it’s been known to happen here at Places In The Home.
Okay, let’s hear it. Grain, flour, and vintage potato sack home decor and home furnishings- add it to the gotta have it list or is this particular trend one you’ll take a pass on?
