Click here if you love the French farmhouse style.
Michele posted 31 gorgeous photos to browse.

I've been following along this kitchen reno and I am loving every inch.

This article hits home hard.
I love the idea of loading up exterior steps for fall with crocks and mums like Liz did.
The leather armchair that we have in our living room is currently 20% at Pottery Barn.
Click here for up to 70% off at West Elm!
I've bought a few new goodies at this sale. Who doesn't love a sale?
This blog always inspires me and makes me want to paint everything bold colors. Too bad I am not that brave. She can totally pull it off.
I have found this to be the most inexpensive place to buy glass jars like the ones pictured above.

Happy weekend everyone!

~some of my favorite fall recipes~

I know summer isn't over quite yet, but I am already thinking about fall.
It is my favorite time of year, and my favorite time to bake and cook. 
I have a recipes tab at the top of this page where you can access all my recipes, but here are some of my fall faves!

I also have an ever-growing recipe board on Pinterest if you'd like to follow along here.

~neutral rug favorites~

Rugs are such a hard thing, for me at least, to pull the plug on.
Especially when buying them online.
But I have bought several neutral rugs online that I love, so I thought I'd share those with you, plus a few more that I have my eyes on!

I have a few of these, they are gorgeous. They are great layered on top of other rugs, or even used as a table cover as I did here!
{think outside the box!}

I also just got this rug for our living room.
I will be sharing a photo soon!

I am still searching high and low for a good rug for our dining room, it's been tough!
Here are some contenders.
This rug could be kind of fun.

This one looks like it would be comfy underfoot:

I could play it safe and go with this one:

I have also had my eye on this one for a while and I see it is now on sale.

If you had to choose from these for my dining space, which one would it be?
Or, none, and go to plan B?

~the best mushroom paint colors~{and 2018 trends)

Mushroom paint colors are big this year.
Here are some of the best according to Country Living Magazine!

I have personally never used any of these colors, but I have used these and love them:

Country Grey by Annie Sloan:

Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore:

I have also used these colors and they are all good.

Now, for 2018, it looks like we have some trends starting....

Resourceful: This palette is made up of complementary blue and orange colors. “This is quite an interesting color combination,” said Eiseman. “It combines warm and cool tones that you just can’t avoid looking at it.”
Verdure: Vegetal colors like Celery are combined with berry-infused purples and eggshell blue, symbolic of health, in this palette. 
Playful: Think "Minions." Bright yellow, lime popsicle, and all other things fun come together for this color scheme. "People need to stop and smile," said Eiseman. 
Discretion: Playful's alter ego. Subtle hues such as Elderberry and Hawthorne Rose offer a new sense of strength. "Pink has developed more power than ever before," said Eiseman.
Far-fetched: With warm, earthy hues such as Cornsilk Yellow blending with rosy tones, this palette "reaches out and embraces many different cultures," said Eiseman. 
Intricacy: A palette of neutral metallics (aka, the "new neutrals") with accents of dramatic Holly Berry Red and yellow Sulfur. 
Intensity: This is an eclectic mix of colors that evokes a sense of strength, power and sophistication, all balanced with black and gold. 
TECH-nique: Bright turquoise, pink and purple colors anchored with Brilliant White and Frosted Almond nod to technology. This palette is all about hues "that seem to shine from within," said Eiseman.

Things are looking pretty bright to me!

~interior wood piles, a good or bad idea?~

Probably for about the past year I have become obsessed with the look of interior wood piles.
They have a modern rustic look to them, are functional and stylish at the same time.
I would love to replicate this look BUT, we have a gas fireplace, so it would be more for looks and not functional at all. I don't know if I am willing to give up valuable space for this.
Also, bugs? I don't want to bring a bunch of critters into the house.
What are your thoughts on this?
I really love how The Ranch Uncommon displays theirs:

This takes my breath away:

Who knew a log pile could look so sleek and modern?

Doesn't this just look so cozy?

I have actually had this pinned and printed out because I swore I'd make one someday.

And then theres this photo that makes me want to run to the woods and start chopping trees down, haha.

So what do you think? Do you like the look, or is it really not practical with a gas fireplace?
I think I already know your answer.......
