I absolutely love the pics of this saltbox home in the Sept/Oct issue of the Country Sampler (sampler link in sidebar). This summer I was leaning towards going back to the farmhouse style because I love light airy and sometimes bright colors, which primitives dont always sport. BUT...when I recieved this sampler my heart went home to the primitives. I love the style....the simplicity of it all. The wood and the neutral colors. Cant you just imagine curling up in this chair, listening to the warm crackle of the fire and reading a good book or sampler!!!
Im in love with this dinning room, I love the warm and cool colors together....Im convinced, Im sticking to primitives. They make a room or home for that matter feel warm, cozy and inviting.
This is proof you can add pops of color to your primitive background. I love the color of the pumpkin and the flowers together...their rolls are almost reversed here. I also love the texture of the metal against the wood.
I cant wait to get started on this old house, I know its not permanent, but it will have the feel that I want till we can build our own home the way we want it. These pictures of this house will be inspiration for me.
Today the weather is cooler, there is a fall breeze in the air and it just makes you want to go for a walk and see what nature is doing and changing, then coming in and nesting in the warmth with family.
Tomorrow my mother in law and I are going to the flea market...something that we try to do every year about this time. It kind of starts my fall season, plus its suppose to be even cooler tomorrow so it we will really have the whole fall atmosphere.
The leaves are starting to change here as well, kind of early, but thats ok by me...
