a modern farmhouse (6)

a modern farmhouse (4)

this year, husband and i are determined to settle into a permanent homestead. we’re exhausted from hopping around the country and moving on average once a year (whew!), so this is our year. brevard will be our permanent  so it’s time to stop renting and start homesteading! lucky for us, my sister-in-law just married an incredibly talented leed certified contractor. woohoo! our options are simple: purchase and renovate or build from scratch.

though we haven’t made up our minds completely on which direction we’ll go, we can’t stop bookmarking the things we love, looking at house plans and browsing real estate. though we would need to reduce it’s size a bit, this modern farmhouse in chester, sc definitely tickles our fancy (that means, we love it!). designed by architect ken pursley, it’s the perfect mix of modern and farm. constructed to allow as much sunlight in as possible, it’s in my book absolutely perfect.

crocheted circle placemats

crochet circle placemats (1)


i’ve been oohing and ahhing over these crocheted circle placemats ever since i saw them on domestic peacock. though they remind me of a dottie angel project, the pattern actually comes from another favorite blog, the purl bee. i want to place them on an old worn-in table made of barn wood, adorned with a modern and sleek white table setting- the center of which will be filled vintage milk glass vases and yellow daisies.

Posted by in home decor

last week, i got an email from a friend who was on the prowl for some new bed sheets. she asks, “I just moved and I’m on the prowl for new bed sheets- any tips for where I can look? I want something edgy and fun.” well i went to huntin’ and this is what i found!

i think pairing patterns and colors when it comes to bed linens can give a great eclectic, chic and cozy look. i also found this post by decor8 on how to layer patterns especially helpful. what’s your favorite look?
