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!

How precious! Congratulations Mimi! That's what my kids call my mom too and she loves it. She started out as "Grammy" but my son started saying "Mimi" and that stuck. Such an exciting time for you and your family! Your decorating changes look beautiful too. I love this time of year!

Looks fabulous. Congrats on becoming a Mimi. Quick question - where did you get the two prints above your new black and cream container? I'd love to see a closer look at them.

Love to swoon over the pics of the house but the best pic is of Miss Addison. What a beautiful little angel. I know your heart has grown 10 times more now that she has entered your family. I am called Mimi and love it so I hope Addison will call you that too.
Enjoy my friend. This is one of the best blessings that life gives us. Congrats I am so excited for you.
