a farmhouse update.

Long time, no blog. I spent the entirety of last weekend working down at the farmhouse.The exterior is officially completed, I am happy to report, and everything looks great! The interior... well, that's a different story. My mom requested my so-called "design expertise" in helping to configure all the rooms and arrange furniture... so that's what I did.
ALL WEEKEND. NON STOP.
I am still recuperating. I worked from sun up to 2AM every night. Actually, I'm being a little over-dramatic. It was a fun time, and I had lots of help... Here's are some pictures of the progress so far.
(BY NO MEANS A FINISHED PROJECT, MIND YOU!)...

I know it's no feat of design brilliance... but you have to take into consideration that this, for all intents and purposes is my mom's taste. She subscribes to the old school theories that you buy things in sets, everything matches, sturdy and well made=keep it no matter how 1982 funk-awful it is, and getting her to position a chair at an angle is like pulling a wisdom tooth. Ya know how mom's are. I have to say though, the the overall feel of the spaces is so home-y and warm and inviting... just how it should be. I am pleased as punch with the progress we've made.

It's such a charming home, Christy! You did a great job setting it up! I love the copper back splash. Did you help with that?

Thank you, my lovelies. Yes, Mandi, Me and my sis Jenn picked out EVERYTHING! The paint colors, hardware, countertops, backsplash, light fixtures, sinks, faucets... you name it, we did it. It has been a long time coming, and it's so cool to see it pulled together!

I think it looks fantastic! I'm curious to see what else you do. I am totally coveting the copper backsplash (or, at least it looks like a backsplash in the pic). You rock, girl!
