Progress in the Boys’ Bedroom

An awkward attic space turns into a charming little boy's farmhouse bedroom!

Sponsored by Stearns & Foster // Now that the boys are out of school for summer, I've finally had some time to work on updating their bedroom with them, and we've made quite a bit of progress in the last few weeks! I don't show the kids' spaces on the blog very often because normally they are messy and full of blanket forts and toys, but I've never really done a full blog post on what their bedroom looks like since we moved into this house, … [Continue reading...]


Hutch in the Living Room

An antique hutch styled simply but beautifully in this Indiana farmhouse

Hi, sweet friends. Normally when I think of summer, I think of life at a much slower pace. Lazy summer days filled with sunshine and sweet tea and lightning bugs and bonfires. But this summer so far has been pretty hectic with a wisdom tooth removal surgery, baseball tournament after baseball tournament for the boys, embarking on a new adventure to open a small shop at a local antique store, and having to say goodbye to our 12 year old cocker … [Continue reading...]


Peonies from my Garden

Freshly picked peonies decorate this beautiful farmhouse kitchen by Liz Fourez

I wish I could say that I picked these beautiful flowers from my garden on a gorgeous sunny day without a care in the world... just enjoying the beauty of spring all around me and the warm sunshine on my face. I wish I could say that this past year hasn't been one of hardest in my life and that I haven't been desperately trying to make sense of the chaos around me. I wish I could say that I haven't laid awake at night alone and crying, wondering … [Continue reading...]


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. So I wanted to share a little update of what my bedroom currently looks like in everyday life, plus a few updates I've made in here recently... bedding, wall art, plants, and pillows to name a few! My bedroom is probably one of my favorite rooms to photograph in the house because it has … [Continue reading...]


DIY Vintage Sign for the Dining Room

A pretty farmhouse dining room decorated for spring!

Hi, my loves! You may remember last week when I shared the current state of our dining room and the floral-inspired decor I have going on in here right now for spring. If not, you can check that post out here! I've slowly been working on adding a little more personality to this pretty plain space, and I spent a couple hours one night making a vintage-inspired sign to hang on the wall behind the dining table. I've made quite a few hand painted … [Continue reading...]
