What a great Mother’s Day it was!
The tradition here is my three men work
tirelessly on the yard and landscaping
all day according to my instructions.
I know. Freakin fabulous.

It has been two years since I blogged
about the multitudinous reasons I’m a huge fan of
Sarah Richardson’s farmhouse.
For the pleasure of discerning
here’s a reprise of the lovely:
This time ’round I am including seldom
seen shots for extra perspective via
the supplier of windows
for this home.
Isn’t this spot majorly heart-stirring?
Why we’re diggin the place?
create balance with modern enhancements
in a farmhouse kitchen.
Shades of Grey.
They work magic with stainless ensembles.
Here they are upholstered in oilcloth.
You know you and guests will spend tons of time
here so why not just say no to good looking but
Give Me Liberty.
For me, farmhouse architecture means
we don’t have to take ourselves too seriously.
*Rosy doors and hardware are pure yum.
Is there realllllly anything else to say?
Heavenly dots, a herringbone-y quilt, and
a rooster on a clock…farmhouse mixes
up the chic.
Unexpected Unpainted Wood.
Yes, everyone and their great-grandma is
chalk painting a kitchen table, but
still no legislation prohibiting
us from stepping away from the paint.
(A white painted 4-poster maybe
would have been expected here.)
Neutrals get busy with
burnt orange, apricot, and garnet
without overwhelming contrasts.
(Am I still the only one who sees Jesus
in the woodgrain of the clock?)
A crown, a crest…
the piece deserves to have a home
designed around it.
Farmhouse chic can be feminine
as Sarah proves.
Since the bones of this farmhouse were
worth honoring, they preserved the
window in the design with this
Oodles and oodles of beautiful showing-its-age
This farmhouse feels clean,
nostalgic, yet modern.
How bout you, farmchix and citychix…
got a soft spot for farmhouse chic?
