Between the comfort of streamlined modern living and the old-world charm of antiques & rustic finds, this farmhouse is so welcoming. Don’t get me wrong… I am as city-girl as it gets, but I would certainly integrate some of the elements found here into an urban abode.
Last week, on my Facebook profile, many of you participated in the “bench vs dining chairs” debate. The comments were fascinating as many found the bench solution to be aesthetically appealing but low on comfort; while others thought it was the perfect perch for late night dinners or to line up the kids for a quick bite. I happen to like a bench at the dining room table. I like how it can be tucked under and hence takes very little visual space. I like how it breaks the monotony of identical chairs, and how it makes for a casual dining setting.
The bedroom oozes romanticism with layers and layers of lace and quilts, but it is the headboard that charmed me. A pair of vintage doors were up cycled into a tall headboard. An antique French canned headboard leans against the massive doors for an added layer effect.
Taken in bits and pieces, this farmhouse sure is an inspiration of the moment.
Until next time, Bizoux
