I was recently tagged by my friend Tara to share photos of my style.
I have to admit that this was harder than I expected.
Not hard to KNOW my style. Hard to find photos of my style. I know they are out there, but I do have three kids and other things to do in life:-)
So, without further ado I wanted to share some of the photos I found that give you a taste of the things I love about architecture and decor.
To describe my style in words would be French Farmhouse.
I love old linens, woodwork, exposed brick and wide planked floors.
I guess I just love the DETAILS. The details that can only be found in an older home.
I love, love, love texture and color. I have burlap curtains in one room and silk in another in my own home. I love the mix of old and rustic with elegant.
I love smaller homes over huge ones. I like divided rooms. I love cozy spaces that I can cuddle in a chair and read my favorite book.
More than a style I guess the truth is I want people to walk in our front door and feel welcome.
I want people to know there is joy here and a family that loves each other.
I want our home to be beautiful and comfortable. I want it to be truly lived in. Without that…it isn't a home to me.
I also want to point out that I love my house and how my husband and I have made it a home. Of course I care more about decorating than him…but I want him to love and be proud of our home also. So many times I will show him a magazine with a photo that I love and his face is telling me "NO WAY". Our home represents both of us…just as it should.
I have NO IDEA where most of these photos originated from. I emailed some of my favorite blogs and asked to use some of these. I know some came from Better Homes and Gardens.
