New Living/Dining Room

Do you have a room in your house that you feel like is never completely finished? Never quite the way you want it to look? Well, I certainly do, and that room is most definitely our living room! Our living room has come a long way in the four years we’ve lived here, and today I am so excited to share with you the latest update to this space. We’ve switched around furniture, decor, lighting and even changed the layout of our living and dining rooms! Go grab a cup of coffee (or your beverage of choice), and I’ll dive into the MANY changes we’ve made in here!

Welcome to our new and improved living room…

Simple Patriotic Dining Room

Simple touches of red, white and blue give this farmhouse dining room the perfect patriotic feel.

A few months ago I was shopping for the perfect blue and white quilt to go in my armoire (which I still have yet to find), and I spotted an old flag hanging in the corner. It was in good condition, but you could tell it definitely had some years on it. Even though I had no specific place to put the flag at our farmhouse, I brought it home with me with the idea that I would find a spot for it this summer. As we head into 4th of July weekend, I … [Continue reading...]

Weekly home and design inspiration from

Hi, sweet friends! I'm going to keep today's post short and sweet. The boys and I are headed to a baseball game tonight, so I'm trying to get a whole bunch of work done this afternoon so I can enjoy the game with them this evening. We were able to get tickets right behind home plate, so my little ball players are super excited for the game, and I guess the tickets also include unlimited food, drinks, and treats... Momma has a date with the … [Continue reading...]

Orange Lemon Shake-up

A refreshing orange twist on a classic summer drink. Fresh, sweet, and so simple to make!

This summer has been a busy one so far, with me finishing up final edits on my book and plenty of jobs up at the farm to be done. Thank goodness for our two eager little boys who love to help Daddy wash tractors. But in between all the long work days, we're having a lot of fun too with pool days, drive-in movies, bonfires, and occasionally an ice cream cone or two. Or three. Lately though, unless I'm able to be near a body of water, I try to … [Continue reading...]

Weekly home and design inspiration from

It's funny how inspiration can come in all different forms. Many times when I'm feeling stuck in a creative rut, I'll look outside of the design world and watch movies, listen to music, study fashion, travel to new places, read magazines and books, or work on photography. All of these things evoke feelings deep inside, which is what fuels my creative spirit. Even though most of those things don't have anything to do with decorating or design, I … [Continue reading...]

Decorating Lessons I’ve Learned – Curtains

Decorating 101 - In this lesson, you'll learn all about curtains and the best way to hang them! Great tips from a self-taught interior decorator!

Over the last four years of writing this blog, I have given our little farmhouse a complete makeover from top to bottom... everything from major kitchen and bathroom renovations, to painting every last wall (at least twice), to replacing all the light fixtures, and more. Now that the sawdust has settled around here, I finally have had a chance lately to look back on all that we've done and all the lessons I've learned along the way. I am a … [Continue reading...]
