My Home: Decor Ideas & Secrets From Around the House

My favorite thing about blogging at the moment has little to do with writing or researching decor inspiration to share. What I love is hearing from you and fielding questions in my inbox about resources, paint colors, and decor to get the Euro inspired lightened-up look I like at home. Even though I’d rather share gorgeous design work from anyone else but me (it feels vulnerable to share non-blog-worthy interiors) Decor Ideas & Secrets From Around My Humble Home addresses commonly asked questions.

Decor Ideas & Secrets From Around My Humble Home

What kind of wood flooring is it?

Our floors are 5″ white oak planks (a medium amount of character) with no stain, finished on site with just a matte sealer.

As soon as you step inside, you'll notice the European country influences and my love for white French country decorating! Come score ideas for a Timeless and Tranquil European Country Inspired Look.

Where did you buy your dining chairs and tables?

The white farm table and bench in the breakfast area are custom made from reclaimed antique barn wood. The metal chairs are HERE.

Secret No. 4: While we don’t eat in our dining room too often, I use this space for reading and sometimes for blogging. Just because a space is called a ‘formal dining room’ doesn’t mean it can’t be used for any number of functions beyond dining.

Secret No. 5: As I am posting all these images and products, I realize why I’m not always enthusiastic about blogging about my own home vs. other homes. Since we tackled this fixer upper DIY style and addressed every single surface, it was a LOT of hard work. When I see the photos, I remember all of the headaches and expenses. It is gratifying to know we did it…but it also makes me tired!

Just saw this peek at Sting’s exquisite Tuscan property!

Peace to you right where you are.

    Hey! We are painting the exterior of our 2400 sq ft home today (during the quarantine) and I want farm house French provincial. I need the perfect white-it needs to have cream undertones as I have a milk chocolate/tan roof. but I want to buy it from Home Depot or Lowe’s. Can you help with a color?

    • Michele

      March 20, 2020 / 1:36 pm

      Exciting! I would try Sherwin Williams Alabaster (Lowe’s or Home Depot can get the color from the computer and mix it). I think the natural sunlight will naturally give you the yellow cast you’re after so you don’t have to go too yellow with the choice of white. Let me know how it goes!
