Modern Farmhouse Additions to the Family Room

Hello everyone!

Ever since Fall arrived, I've been adding more warmth to our home with the addition of black and wood tones.  It helps off set all of the white.  I'm liking the modern farmhouse look that it's creating.  Since I have such a neutral color palette throughout my house, it allows me to change up accessories easily.  

The first thing that I did, was to move my white slipcovered chair out of the family room and into the sitting room. That allowed me to  bring in the kubu chairs that were at my kitchen table.   I  replaced them with the ones that were in my sitting room that have a slightly different shape.  Did you follow all of that?  

The slipcovered chair is now in the sitting room with room for an ottoman now.  

Ok, back to the family room.  Then I added more greenery around the fireplace.

 I added more texture to the coffee table with this branch.  I love the look of organic accessories.  

I stacked some weathered wood crates in the corner behind the sofa.

And added textured pillows with black and white fabric to the sofas.

This room is really a mix of French and modern farmhouse styles.  

Back in the sitting room, I filled the corner beside the large grey cabinet with this black and cream fabric container.  I love the texture it adds to the space. 

So, there you have it!  A little bit of modern and French farmhouse all blended together!  I think it works.  

Oh, and guess what happened to me on Wednesday, October 11th?!  If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know this, but I became a grandma!  Well, actually I became a "Mimi".  That's what I hope to be called.  

Meet Addison Jane.  6 lbs 7 oz, 18.5 inches long

So, now you know my life will become a little busier, and hopefully,  happier and fuller!  I look forward to spending a lot of time with her. 

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Changes to my Dining Room

Hello everyone!

Have you ever bought something that led to a whole room change?  I did!  I found a pretty church canvas (from Kirklands) that did just that.  I originally intended it for a different area, but you know how it goes.  You get it home and start seeing it in a new light in OTHER areas of your home and then try to decide on the best place for it.  I guess I was drawn to the brown tones in this picture and how it brought out the brown tones in the chairs and chandelier.  So, I placed this picture above the sideboard and a new room was born.

It's Finally Fall Y'all!

Hello everyone!

How has your week been?  The weather here in GA has been pretty.  The rain has moved out and the sun has been shining.  We finally got our yard all cleaned up from Tropical Storm Irma.  We still need to take our garden down.  The plants are no longer producing so it's time to clean it up and wait until next Spring to do it all over again.  

With today being the official first day of Fall, I thought it would be fun to post some pretty Fall images to get us all in the spirit of the season.
