My design soul-sister, Christine Dovey of Bijou and Boheme is building a home! The link is to her inspiration post for the exterior of her home. My house needs to be painted. Right now the house and barn are white with forest green shutters and trim and grey shingle roof. I want to paint it white with black trim and shutters with a kelly green metal roof. Christine also loves a white house, so I'm totally benefiting from her research.
While looking for styling ideas for the open shelving in my kitchen,
I was smitten with this image from A Country Farmhouse.
The blog is so inspiring and also so scary. They did so much work! Sometimes when I read blogs it seems like the people have unlimited budgets, but I appreciate that she and her husband did a lot of the work and also are great bargain hunters. Her family is really young though, and they were living in their barn pre-kids... so my experience will be a little bit wilder. My style is a little bit wilder as well, but I really love all that she has done. Another white farm house to adore. I am SOOO excited.
