Do you long for that cozy country feel in your home? If you’re like me, there are days you wake up and dream your home has been replaced with a quaint, old Farmhouse.
Something historical, natural wood floors, wood beams, white washed pine furniture, climbing roses, huge porch…sounds wonderfully relaxing and romantic to me!
Not to say I don’t love my home, but there is something in me, maybe I was a “farm girl” in my past life, but I have always longed for a farmhouse.
I have decided that you don’t need to live in a barn or on a farm to embrace country charm — if you are a ‘country’ dreamer like me — and want to inject that charm into your home, take a look at these ideas for your farmhouse decor.
Once you start setting up a new home, chances are good you’ll discover lots of pesky empty wall space that needs filling. I love browsing galleries for original art, but I admit that extra step of contacting them for availability and prices often stops me in my tracks (as do the price tags themselves). I love sites that give it to me straight.
We’ve done lists of online art resources before, but it’s never too soon for another round up. The following ten websites fall somewhere between sites that sell affordable prints, and galleries with artwork that lists in the thousands. If you’re just starting a collection, this is a great place to start.
Choosing the perfect front door can be a daunting decision. Just how much color is too much? According to HGTV’s Curb Appeal and Curb Appeal: The Block designer and architect John Gidding, color is the key to a welcoming front entry space.
