I realize that style need not carry a title, but I'd always liked the cottage look, but I also love industrial items....and when I think about cottage+industrial = farm. Right? Charming porches with barn-style lighting. Cozy dens with old barn-siding floors. Bedrooms with chippy, rusted metal chests.

So I live in a retro 70s ranch-style home that has red formica countertops and brown carpet in the kitchen. Not screaming fashionable farmhouse.

Does this peak your interest to see more of my beautiful new home? Well, it just so happens that I did a whole post showcasing it in all her glory!
I'm so excited to start on my next project with all these fantastical (I know it's not a word) farmhouse fun in mind!!
I have a BUNCH of farmhouse-y and industrial chic purchases that I've made recently that I need to photograph and share....so I'll get on that as soon as I can find a way to occupy my kids for 10 minutes....and when I can forge a path to that part of my garage!
I definitely suggest checking out LaurieAnna's beautiful blog and shoppe
I'd love to hear your ideas about style and design.
take care -
