SARAH RICHARDSON'S HOLIDAY FARMHOUSE

I have always loved Sarah Richardson's designs,
especially the farmhouse she renovated for her family
. . . and even more when it's decorated for Christmas.

These photos are from a couple years ago but
I love looking at them every year and
being inspired all over again.

Those red doors are perfect any time of the year
but of course, especially at Christmas.
Her little girl is the cutest touch of all!


That tree is HUGE and so beautiful!


I've always adored her use of soft yellows and gray
in the kitchen.


I wouldn't mind having Christmas dinner 
in this dining room : )


Now we can head upstairs on this gorgeous stairway.


Wouldn't you love to stay in this guest room?
C'mon, Sarah ~ just one night is all I ask ~pretty please?
I might have to slip that red and white quilt into
my overnight bag!


More yellow and gray in the bathroom ~ sooo pretty.


And here it is, all lit up at night.
It's a large home but still cozy, warm, and inviting.
~ gorgeous ~


There are a few more photos on the HOUSE&HOME site
if you would like to see them.

{ i think i'll go pack my overnite bag now in case Sarah calls ~ haha }

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
It's time to get all of our sugarplums in a row.


CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!

  3. That stairway makes me wish we still lived in our former home so I could copy the idea. I don't miss climbing up and down stairs, but those stairs make such a beautiful statement.

  4. Thank you JoAnne for sharing these photos! This has always been my favorite makeover of Sarah's, but I have never seen the Christmas version. I can only imagine with her talent how lovely it is in person. I'm going to go check out the rest of the photos, but wait for me - I'm packing my bags too.

A HOUSE ON A LAKE

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…
