Are you picking up on a theme here? I love Farmhouse style! I wish I could paint our kitchen cabinets and install a farmhouse sink...but, for now I'll just be excited about some new farmhouse accessories. I found an awesome "farmhouse" sign which was the last piece needed to re-style the space above our kitchen cabinets!
We have been in our home for 13 years and it's always refreshing to make a change!
Hi friends! Back in October of 2011, I shared photos of our updated laundry room - see that post here. I went from kind of a garden theme to more of a clean, farmhouse feel. If you look back at the photos you will notice that I avoided taking a photo of the door that leads to the garage. I hated the door - it was solid and very plain. I've been searching for an antique door with more character for quite some time. I finally found the PERFECT door and couldn't be happier!
I love being able to see out the windows. I love entering our home by turning an antique glass door knob. I love the farmhouse feel of the door.
We don't know if this will be our forever home or not, but I'm pretty sure this door is going with us if we move!
I love gallery walls! I love pretty much every gallery wall I've ever seen. The options are endless - there are no real rules - and you can definitely "color outside the lines" when it comes to gallery walls. We recently completed two different gallery walls in the shop:
You can see in the second photo that we used lots of different items and mixed several styles. When you hang the first few things you may doubt it, but just keep going - gallery walls turn out great!
Hi friends! It's November, the time change has occurred, and Texas is experiencing a cool down - that's a recipe for burning Fall-scented candles and decorating mantles! I know it also makes many of you giddy just thinking about the upcoming Holidays and that decking the halls is on your mind! I'll be honest...I wasn't quite ready to say goodbye to summer, I hate the time change and I'm pretty sure my tan isn't going to last thru November. Can I get an "Amen" from any other summer girls out there?!
Despite my concerns about mild seasonal depression and reduction in Vitamin D (ha!), we cheerfully decorated the shop for Christmas! Yes, we are fully stocked with Christmas items for every style from whimsical to traditional. We are your source for gifts too - don't forget your hair stylist and teachers! And let's not just skip over Thanksgiving - we have gorgeous serving pieces and other decor items for that little gem of a holiday too.
For your gift list - we carry:
LUX & Candleberry candles (both made in the USA)
ABC Scripture Cards
MudPie for baby and home
The Home T shirts featuring Texas (amazing!)
Wickman candle accessories
plus antiques & vintage - something new every weekend!
I love that I was raised in
the South. I admire strong Southern women, appreciate Southern gentlemen and crave Southern cooking. I especially adore Southern hospitality and how it transforms our homes. Come linger awhile at Southern Charm Cottage.
