Hello, everyone!

I'm Mari from Arcadian Home blog, a wonderful place to find lots of interior design inspiration including fabulous ideas for lighting from bathroom light fixtures to lovely little wall sconces. I'm so excited to be visiting with you here at A Pocketful of Blue with a guest post about charming farmhouse bathrooms.

For your decorating inspiration, I've pulled together some of my favorite country bathroom designs from across the United States and around the world. It seems just about every country has its own treasured farmhouses. Please enjoy!

Farmhouse Bath

This farmhouse style bath in the guest house of a San Juan Islands, Washington, compound shows the beauty of simplicity that is evident in many country bathrooms. A white clawfoot tub is the centerpiece of the room's design.

The bathroom of a country home called Casa Atmella in Spain is a wonderful mix of rustic and contemporary. One of my favorite elements is the use of baskets instead of the requisite drawers we have come to expect in American bathrooms. I also love the large swing arm wall lamps.

Designer Sarah Richardson created this lovely farmhouse main bath. Gray and yellow make for a wonderful country color scheme. The clawfoot tub has a sunny yellow finish. Don't you wish we could see more? I love the pretty floral draperies.

Here's another pretty farmhouse bath from Sarah Richardson. See how beautifully a contemporary soaking tub fits seamlessly into a country space?

A Brooklyn, New York, brownstone bath gets a touch of farmhouse style. My favorite element is the door that came to this city home by way of a sheep barn in the country. This one shows that great farmhouse style can work in just about any style home.

Now on to Sonoma County, California. Influenced by South Africa's Cape Dutch farmhouse style, this country home is a charming mix of styles. For instance, in the master bath, a reclaimed cast-iron tub, Chinese antique stool eighteenth century wardrobe and Thomas O'Brien modern pendant lights merge to create a lovely farmhouse look.

Remember the plain farmhouse bath in our first image above? From Morrells Farmhouse in Johannesburg, South Africa, here's a fancy bathroom that also includes a white clawfoot tub, but is dressed up with lovely drapes and an ornate crystal chandelier. That takes us from plain to fancy in seven farmhouse bathrooms.

From a charming bed and breakfast in the south of France, this rustic outdoor shower with galvanized tub has to be my favorite farmhouse bath ever.

We hope you've enjoyed our little tour of farmhouse bathrooms from around the United States and the world. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.



Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.

But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.

And a decorated mantel.

A Christmas tree, of course.

Pretty packages.

And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.

Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.

I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!

Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!

Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
