Oh, Fall! You encompass some of my very favorite things! The textures of Fall are just so warm and wonderful. I absolutely love creating Fall tablescapes. It gives me the chance to incorporate those favorite little things of mine into something beautiful! My favorite place to do that? My formal dining room, of course! It’s the perfect spot that I can still enjoy it every day passing by, but doesn’t get disturbed. Get cozy, grab a cup of hot coffee and hang out with me while I share my farmhouse chic fall tablescape with you all!
Lola and Scarlet are here to welcome you to our Fall front porch!
Call me crazy, but I always decorate our front porch early, early! I even had a couple people walk by and tell me it was too early. To each their own! The moment I spotted pumpkins at the local farm market, I was dragging them home to dress up the porch! So you guessed it, I’m sharing our Fall front porch with you all today! [Read more…]
When it comes to shopping for items around the house, especially outdoors, I tend to keep an eye out for things that I can use and change for different seasons! I wanted to share a cute wall fork flower pot that I found over at Ragon House Market.
It’s a simple piece that can easily be used throughout all four seasons! Today I’m sharing with you how I dressed it up for Fall and Winter!
We’re all busy, some more than others, and it’s not always possible to spend a lot of time decorating the outside of your home. You will see in just a few simple steps how I create a darling, Fall display for our front door! Just buy adding some pieces of faux greenery to the little wall fork flower pots, it created an eye-catching display! Create an even more inviting feel by adding some additional seasonal items like pumpkins, fall leaves and a knit blanket!
Now, for Winter I decided to stick with the faux greenery, but this time I opted for dusty miller! I placed a few stems into the flower pots and that’s it! You can also get more creative by adding glittery picks and decorative bows! Add in a festive Christmas sign and either a real or faux tree and you’re all set! Maybe even a stack of wrapped Christmas presents would look cute too 😉
So, there you have it! I’ve shown you how to use one piece for two different seasons! It wouldn’t be hard to incorporate Spring and Summer with this piece either!
Do you have a specific display piece that you incorporate into each season? Share with me in the comments!
Thanks for stopping by today, see you next time 🙂
The kitchen is the heart of the home, but what comes next? How about a good dining room? I absolutely LOVE my formal dining room! It’s the perfect place to host dinner parties with friends and family, plus I absolutely love decorating it! I’ve put together a board of must-have items when it comes to creating the perfect dream dining room!
It won’t come to any surprise to you, that I’ve stuck with a neutral color palette. To me, neutrals are the easiest to work with and change out decor for the Holidays or just because.
I love the character the antiqued pieces bring to this room! This is a very simple design to recreate! Now, I’m going to show you what adding a few elements of decor can do to completely turn this space around! As I mentioned the other day, I’m in Fall mode, so I’ll be creating a dining room decorated for Fall!
My suggestion would be to paint the walls Swiss coffee and trim ultra pure white. Opt for a farmhouse-style chandelier. Or, something a little more fancy and add crystals! I love adding navy to this dining room! The long, flowing navy curtains and matching navy throw pillows, tie the space together. Add a chunky knit throw to the one of the head chairs for instant coziness.
Fill your china cabinet/hutch with a beautiful collection of vintage ironstone. Hang an olive leaf or eucalyptus wreath in front of your hutch. Don the table with a similar swag of eucalyptus garland and create a stunning centerpiece by adding some cinderella pumpkins and tiered candles! Fill in any blank spaces with some faux or live stemmed greenery!
Wow! What a difference just adding some simple decor makes! Now, if only I could make this room come to life 😉 Keeping this for future reference! Pin here so you can save it too!

What a pleasure to have you here today! Thank you for stopping by!
See you next time 🙂
Remember last week when I said I was going to share some exciting BIG news with you all? Well, today is that day!! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may already know. So, without further ado…. Farmhouse Chic is opening a STOREFRONT!!!! Eek 🙂 I hope that you can feel my excitement through this post! It’s absolutely through the roof!
I have wanted to open a store for many years! As my style has grown into farmhouse chic, a subtle mix of farmhouse and shabby chic, and since I’ve created this little blog; my goal was to always have a brand, something to show my passion and hard work! Now, it’s finally happening! I certainly couldn’t do it without the hard work of my awesome BF, Kenny, and the constant support from our family and friends! [Read more…]
It won’t take long for you to realize I’m in love with farmhouse decor! Hence my blog name 😉 If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know my style has leaned more towards a mix of shabby chic and farmhouse. Today I’m sharing with you simple ways to add farmhouse style to your home!
I am no designing expert, but these are tips that I use throughout my home!
Use a nice neutral color-palette. I love this farmhouse palette from Behr. The walls throughout my home are painted Swiss coffee. I love this color because it goes well with seasonal decor and my every-day decor!
Add fresh flowers any and everywhere! Fresh flowers add instant charm to any space. I’m always browsing the local grocery for flowers on clearance or any daily deals. I’ve also grown a good bit from home through the landscaping. That saves me a little money 😉
White furniture! My instant go-to for painting old or new pieces, is white. You can’t go wrong with it. If it’s too clean for you, you can always add a dark wax. It appears fresh to the eye and styles well with many colors and designs.
Chippy furniture!! A farmhouse must-have! It has recently and quickly became one of my favorite things! You can check out my old antique table update here! Talk about adding instant charm? This is it! Not much decor is needed to make these pieces speak to a room!
It’s no secret that I love a good wreath! I have wreathes throughout my home for added decor. Adding a magnolia wreath adds instant farmhouse charm!
Painted furniture and handwritten signs! We specialize in making farmhouse handwritten signs, so adding them throughout our home is very special! I’ve been a little more brave lately with using other paint colors other than white! You can check out my Bergere antique table and antique wardrobe makeover.
As you can see in almost every picture I’ve above, there is greenery! I love adding greenery to my space. It livens it up instantly! Some of my favorites are eucalyptus, rabbit ears and dusty miller.
Some more of my farmhouse must-haves are:
Galvanized metal // mercury glass // canvas and/or neutral fabric // white ceramic
Thank you so much for stopping by today! As always, it was a pleasure to have you here!
See you next time 🙂
It’s Friday!! Woot-woot, break out into the happy dance! We don’t have our little ones this weekend, so we’re finishing up some projects that we started months ago (eek!). Better late than never though, right?! A couple of those projects include our kitchen! Do you remember when we shared updates of our kitchen remodel? Catch those posts here and here! I’m actually just realizing I never shared the full kitchen since the update! Wow! With that said, once we finish up the few things on our to-do list this weekend, you can expect a FULL kitchen reveal! Yessss!
In the mean time, since you’re here, you know it’s time for the Friday Favorites! A glimpse of the goodness that has inspired me this week 🙂 This week it’s, lemons! Oh yes, lemons! So much summery fun! [Read more…]
A couple weeks before Memorial Day, and I’m decorating the house in a patriotic theme! It’s perfect because we are so busy with birthday parties, bbq’s, camping, extracurricular actives, barn sales and whatever else comes up, that I don’t have to decorate for the 4th of July! I love adding a little patriotic feel to my normal farmhouse decor!
One of my very favorite things to do, is share with you all products and things that I love! I’m excited to share a company with you called Uncommon Goods that I recently came across! Uncommon Goods is an environmentally friendly company that features handmade, recycled and organic products.
I absolutely cannot believe I’m rounding up my popular posts of 2016! This year has seemed to fly by, do you agree? I was very scared for what 2016 had in store for me. As many of you may know, I shared at the end of last year (2015) that my husband and I separated. It came as a shock to me and I wasn’t prepared for what to expect. As time went on, things began to fall into place. The kids and I began to create our own happy life and I began to learn to rely on myself more than anyone else. I would be lying if I said it was all rainbows and flowers. There were a lot of ups and downs, but the good outweighed the bad. My faith in the Lord is what has brought me to where I am today! I know I wouldn’t be where I am without it! I’m eager to put 2016 behind me and see what amazing things are in store for 2017!!
So, let’s get to it… Here’s my most popular posts of 2016!
