Hello! Today I have a different type of post for you – about home decor. I really love the “farmhouse” kind of a look in a home, with rustic looking wood and all the white. I thought it would be fun to share a little bit of inspiration!
We had our home custom built last year, so we were able to choose everything, and I chose as much white and lighter colors as I could. We live out in the country on a few acres, so I wanted a rustic (country but still glam) type of look. Since we don’t have any homes very close to us, and don’t need blinds, I can use natural light. I put up sheer curtains that I keep pulled back for decoration.
We have white stone on the exterior, a white stone fireplace to match, and white cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms. I just love the look of a clean crisp white home. The color of the walls is a white color with a teeny bit of peach to it, so it does look different against the baseboards.
As for the flooring, we have a medium toned brown stained concrete that really pops against all of the white, and adds to the rustic feel. I love the shininess of stained concrete, and no grout to clean!
Here is our breakfast nook, where we eat all of our meals. We have a big window here, so I put up a bronzed colored rod and sheer curtains, same as the living room. On each side, I found these wooden square pieces with floral designs in the middle. These have a natural white distressed look.
As for the table, it is a darker wood color with two chairs on one side and a bench on the other.
I found a burlap table runner and a round slice of wood, and added some pretty faux flowers, a candle, and this copper looking round piece. I added a little ceramic white pumpkin to it for the fall season. I like how the gold touches give it a little bit of glam.
I have a few things on the top of the cabinets, but I don’t like a cluttered kitchen, so I tend to not keep a whole lot on the countertops.
I have this white vase with sort of a filigree detail, a wooden sign that says family in galvanized metal, and an antique looking white birdcage.
On the other side of the kitchen, I have another vase, but this one is kind of a bronze color. I also have this horse statue that was kind of random, but I liked that it was wood, and sort of country. I then have a black sign that says CAFE, and then above the opening to the hallway, I have this N sign with whitewash wood and flower detail.
Some little accents I have on the counters are a few pictures of my girls, these really cute white lace looking salt and pepper shakers, and a letterboard that I like to change often.
We do have a bar underneath three pendant lights, and it is longer on one side than the other, so we decided that three barstools would be perfect.
The legs are a distressed light gray color, and the cushions are a tufted material in a tan color, verrry similar to our couch, so I thought they would go nicely here.
That’s it for my kitchen area!! I love the way that it looks and I hope I was able to give you some inspiration if you like this type of decor.
Thanks for reading! xx
