Beautiful Country House Exteriors

September 25, 2015

I have some gorgeous, perfectly shabby houses for you today. It seems I have entered a dry spell as far as motivation to blog goes, though I have had no shortage of inspiration lately. Since I became a vendor at an antique store earlier this month a lot of my “mojo” has been going towards schemes related to it; sourcing, buying, pricing, dreaming, etc. I have had dry spells like this before and still came back full force, so we’ll see where this takes us.

In the mean time if you’d like to keep seeing what I’m into, I’m more active than ever on Pinterest and Keep. If you’re not familiar with Keep (I’m assuming you’re familiar with Pinterest because come on now) it’s sort of a similar concept except everything on it is a purchasable item. You can “keep” items from any online store. I save virtually everything that catches my eye, so there’s a lot on there. I actually have more followers on Keep than on Pinterest which baffles me a little. But it kind of points to my strength: shopping. 😉

Have a fabulous weekend!

Simple Rustic Indoor Plants

Has anyone else noticed that my taste in interior design has started to lean heavily towards this simple rustic look? When I first began blogging years ago the style I was most inspired by was Scandinavian, which now seems far too sterile to me. Then…

Planning Our Kitchen Remodel

It’s been a long time since I blogged about my own home. Just over a year. While it doesn’t feel to me like a lot has happened or changed, there are definitely some things I could share with you guys. For starters I’m excited to…

Color Inspiration for Living Rooms

While a neutral room with pops of color is typically more my style, I do occasionally love a good liberal use of color. Bright and strong colors can be so invigorating, wonderful if you want a room to feel exciting and fun. The shot above…
