A Cozy Farmhouse Entryway

A cozy farmhouse entryway with the perfect balance of function, storage and style.

Do you ever start on one little project, and it ends up leading into fifteen others? That's exactly what happened to me last week! Ever since I put away the Christmas decorations, the armoire in our entryway has been pretty bare other than a knit blanket I always keep on one shelf. I just never got around to redecorating it after the holidays. So I decided to quickly try and style the armoire shelves the other day... … [Continue reading...]


My Trip to Waco, Texas

Right now I’m sitting in my office in my cozy, little farmhouse in Indiana with a dog laying on my feet and a cup of hazelnut coffee in my hand. But last week I was in Waco, Texas… … meeting Chip and Joanna Gaines. … [Continue reading...]


A Grown-up Playroom Update

A super sweet playroom design featured in a beautiful Indiana farmhouse

You've probably noticed that there are a few rooms in my little farmhouse that you'll see over and over again on the blog and some rooms that rarely, if ever, get put in the spotlight. Let's be honest, my 7 and 11 year old boys don't exactly keep their playroom "photo ready" on a regular basis (as they shouldn't!), so it hasn't been featured much over the last almost five years. When we first moved into this house, I spent a ton of time creating … [Continue reading...]


Armoire Makeover – Whitewashing Tutorial

Step inside this beautiful Indiana farmhouse entryway decorated with a mix of timeworn antiques and unique DIY projects!

This project/tutorial has been on my need-to-blog list for way too long, but starting the new year (and getting a pretty new blog planner) has finally motivated me to get it done! Last summer I transformed this antique armoire in our entryway from the original rustic wood finish to a soft, dusty white, and I've had a ton of questions on how I got this look. So I thought I'd put together a whitewashing tutorial for you guys and show you how I did … [Continue reading...]

Winter Living Room Refresh

A beautiful farmhouse living room that feels cozy, bright, and totally charming!

Hi, sweet friends! I'll admit it was a little depressing at first when all the Christmas decor came down and was packed away for the year. Part of me loves the clean, uncluttered blank slate, and the other part of me misses the coziness and light and warmth. The lights on the tree and wreaths in all the windows and presents waiting to be opened and cookies baking in the oven... it's pretty hard to top that feeling, especially once the dreary, … [Continue reading...]


Favorites of 2016

Favorite photos of this beautiful Indiana farmhouse in 2016 by Liz Fourez of Love Grows Wild

And so another year begins on this little blog of mine... It would be completely cliche to say something like, "this year has been full of ups and downs", but quite frankly it has. At the beginning of last year, I was finally able to afford a complete renovation of our old farmhouse kitchen, and I'm still amazed at the before and after photos every time I look at them. And then in the midst of the renovation chaos, I wrote my very first book, … [Continue reading...]
