Usually I do ” Best Of The Blogosphere” on Fridays and share projects I love from across the web. I am going to ease back into that since the pictures/html/writing etc. take a lot of time. In the meantime, I am going just share things I have discovered throughout the week.
This week, I found Thistlewood Farm…OMG. LOVE. First of all, I want a farm. You all know this about me. You know I want to be a farmer. Well…a Martha Stewart type farmer, not a down and dirty with the hogs type farmer.
More of a running in fields of wheat, picking fresh flowers, talking to the ducks, wearing wide-brimmed hats and cute aprons in the garden kind of experience.
In the meantime, here are some Thistlewood Farm spaces that I l-o-v-e.
First up is the kitchen. I love the neutral-ness and all the white. I am always a big fan of mixing super casual elements with touches of elegance, check out those chandy’s. My favorite part of the room I think has to be the hutch. I have been known to collect a few white platters (or 20) in my day.
I want to display them. I want a chalky green hutch.
I only ever pick white because it always goes with everything. Mixing and matching is super easy and food always looks best on white.
This bathroom is so charming. My favorites are the chippy rustic baskets and isn’t it amazing how white bead board makes everything so crisp and clean.
I heart this playroom. We need a playroom. We have no space for a playroom. We are bursting at the seams.
This is SUCH a cool idea. It is a little art house in a shed! Dang! I want an art house for me. This is the benefit of not living in a neighborhood that doesn’t even allow people to have sheds in the yard. Even if they match the house. Even if they are cute. Guess who lives in a neighborhood like that?
Go check out Thistlewood Farm. I love it. I think the decorating success of this house really depends on the continuity (big word, yes I went to college) of the theme throughout and the dedication to certain elements like the baskets, chippy floors, and creamy neutral color scheme.
Yesterday I mentioned the drapes in the dining room. After that I became obsessed. I did a virtual redesign making things a little more creamy and neutral just to see where it would go. Here it is:
Yes, I think a spring/summer redesign is in the works I am going to challenge myself to a spring/summer redesign on the kitchen, dining room, and family room for under $300.00 using elements that I already have and adding some new stuff. Pray for me (considering that rug is $600 at Pottery Barn).
Oh and I almost forgot, Jessica Andersons kitchen is next up for a Reader Re-Vamp! I am so excited. Thanks SOOOO much for your patience Jessica!
