French Country in the Dining Room

A beautiful farmhouse dining room with a french country twist

I hinted a few weeks ago that I was thinking about making some changes in the dining room, and it all started with wanting new dining chairs to replace the black metal ones I had. Well, I found the perfect chairs that I totally fell in love with, and I should have known that one thing would lead to another and another... and another! That's just how I roll apparently. After weighing quite a few chair options, I settled on a pair of chairs with … [Continue reading...]


My Decorating Essentials: Throw Blankets

Soft, cozy throw blankets are a farmhouse decorating essential - shop our favorites!

Every time I work on a room makeover or style a space for a photo shoot or even when I'm just tidying up the house before having company over, I've noticed lately that there are a handful of items that I almost always use to decorate with. Sort of a decorating "formula" I've played with and fine tuned over the last five years of writing this blog, and I thought the other day that I should start sharing my tried and true decorating essentials here … [Continue reading...]


Spring Master Bedroom

A clean and cozy farmhouse master bedroom with tons of vintage charm

I think the last few times I've shared my master bedroom here on the blog was during the holidays or sometime when it was all decorated for a certain season.

My bedroom is probably one of my favorite rooms to photograph in the house because it has … [Continue reading...]

Warm spring weather is so close now in Indiana that I can almost smell and taste it, and I cannot wait to see the trees in my yard covered in beautiful blooms.

First, I made some new artwork … [Continue reading...]


Favorite Farmhouse Benches

Farmhouse decor inspiration - shop our favorite farmhouse style benches!

Hi, sweet friends! The last few weeks I've been talking about the changes I recently made in our entryway (here and here), and I've gotten a lot of questions and comments about the little wooden bench that sits next to my front door. Remember this little sweetie? As you may or may not remember, I actually made this bench from an old door we found in the basement of our farmhouse, and it is probably one of my most treasured pieces of … [Continue reading...]


A Mini Office in the Entryway

A Mini Office in the Entryway | Making use of small spaces in this beautiful Indiana farmhouse

A few weeks ago, I shared some changes in our entryway that all started with a little bit of spring decorating and ended up snowballing into hours of projects and furniture rearranging. This space has been craving a fresh, new look for quite some time, so when inspiration struck me that day, I just went with it! I've shared one half of our entryway by the front door many times here on the blog, but it's been awhile since I've shared what the … [Continue reading...]
