A Colorful Farmhouse

I ran across this farmhouse the other day on Houzz and I really
loved it so I thought you might too.

The exterior is white with black shutters, a beautiful and classic
look for a farmhouse.  It also has a large cupola and a cute picket
fence ~ I mean, who wouldn't love those details?

On the inside however, you will see lots of beautiful,
 soft color in every room.

 Isn't this great room amazing?

the ceiling
the huge chandelier
the fireplace
the large windows
the warm wood tones
the soft shades of blue and green
the cozy furniture arrangement
the hardwood floors

It all just draws you right in.


Just beyond the great room, you can see the kitchen with
its huge stove hood that extends all the way to the ceiling.
Even the cabinets are a soft sage green.


This dining room is so pretty. 
Such a gorgeous table and slipcovered chairs.


Here's the master bedroom with a fireplace and french
doors that lead outside.


I really love this bathroom.
Of course the shiplap is wonderful but what
really caught my eye was the skirted openings under the sinks.
It's such a sweet look and perfect for farmhouse style.


I think the addition of the coral color to the blue and green in this
bedroom is really pretty.
The patina on that bed is gorgeous too.


The feminine sconces and shower curtain are what really
caught my eye in this bathroom.


Even the laundry room is decked out in farmhouse style 
including the wonderful brick floor.


And this hallway is incredible with its brick wall
and old tractor seats as wall art - love it!


The gorgeous outdoor space continues the blue and green color theme.
The beautiful blue sky is doing its part as well.
I think I could spend a little time out here!

Large trees, white fencing, and even a windmill create a beautiful
setting for this farmhouse.

Do you love it?
I keep looking back at all the details in this wonderful home.
We see a lot of white and neutral color schemes
in farmhouse style which I think is very beautiful
but this house shows us that if you love color, it can also
be incorporated beautifully in a farmhouse.

Edited to add:  You can see many more photos of this home over at
 Carol's blog,  Blue Sky Kitchen.  Carol is lucky enough to be friends
with the owner and she has been a guest there.

Thank you, Carol, for sharing your gorgeous photos.
Also, thank you to Stacey at Poofing the Pillows for letting
me know about Carol's posts!

Thanks so much for your visit!

  2. JoAnne, when I saw these pictures I kept thinking it looks so familiar. Carol at Bluesky Kitchen is friends with the owner of this house and she shared it last year. Look back and you might see some shots that weren't on Houzz. It's a gorgeous house!! http://blueskykitchen.net/2016/05/03/fabulous-farmhouse-tour-continues/

    I'm glad you found it on Houzz to remind me. I'm going to use some of the inspiration from these pics. :)

  3. JoAnne, this farmhouse belongs to a friend of mine and I posted about it a year ago. It truly is a beautiful spot. I had no idea that it was on House until my friend Stacey sent me your link.

  9. It's a beautiful farmhouse. I love the main room and the colour of the kitchen cabinets. There's a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The floor in that room is amazing and I'm also in love with the brick floor in the laudry room. But is that a TV in the bathroom???

  10. We are traveling for a few weeks with our travel trailer and I've not always had consistent, reliable internet access so I could check in with you. I love this farmhouse. So many great ideas. I'll be back to look at them again!

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!
JoAnne

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…
