In City Farmhouse Style, Leggett offers great style advice, breaking down the design vocabulary that makes for fresh country style (no matter the setting). The popularity of farmhouse style has designers, homeowners, and fans in search of inspiration to create this look in all its rural glory. Topics include:
- Farmhouse Paints
- Farmhouse Wallpapers

- Salvaged Style
- Made from Scratch
- And more!
Leggett writes in her introduction, “The real beauty of farmhouse style—unlike more fleeting design trends—is that it’s rooted in roll-up-your-sleeves practicality. Farmhouses have been around for hundreds of years, after all, and they were designed to work hard—to accommodate multigenerational families, feed a crowd, and, yes, handle a little dirt. . . . I also suspect farmhouse style has such widespread appeal because it’s inherently inviting. It’s warm, welcoming, and thanks to its adaptability, all inclusive.”
City Farmhouse Style focuses entirely on transforming urban interiors with unfussy, welcoming, country-style decor. It’s a unique resource whether you have a small apartment or a large townhouse.

"As the editor in chief of Country Living, a brand with design-loving readers all over the country, I’ve seen firsthand how the demand for all things farmhouse has grown exponentially over the past few years . . . Farmhouse Style seems to resonate everywhere, from the neon lights of Times Square to one-stoplight town squares, and for good reason: A farmhouse table or an apron sink work just as well in an urban loft or suburban Tudor as they do in a country farmhouse.”From the foreword by Rachel Hardage Barrett, Editor in Chief, Country Living
