Adding Farmhouse Style in the Kitchen

1.23.2015

Years ago if you told me that I would become a fan of farmhouse style I would have looked at you as if you had two heads. I went through a country decorating phase in the early years of our marriage, but then I became mainly a traditional style gal. Now I love things that look like they came from an old farm with the wide planked floors and a squeaking screen door. Of course I love French style, too so a mix of both is perfect to me.




While shopping in Franklin I came across this sweet apron in a shop on main street and I knew it would be perfect hanging with my other aprons in my kitchen.

What was there not to love with its faded red stripes and rick rack trim?

I hung it on this antique hanger so it would hang properly to show all the details.



It goes nicely with two of my other aprons. Yes, I do actually use the other ones when I cook. I have ruined more clothes having stuff splatter on me so I grab an apron to protect my clothes. The one on the left is my favorite one to wear. I found it on super clearance at Williams Sonoma and it is very soft.

I placed this old farm stool below the aprons for a bit more farmhouse style.



It needed a little something extra so I added the enamelware pitcher.
There....much better.

I have even more aprons hanging around the corner on a rack in the entry off the garage.

 Do you wear an apron when you cook?

Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Yes I do wear an apron...especially on Sundays when I am cooking in my church clothes! :) I used to have a country kitchen and I had an apron collection...but when we moved I changed to a Tuscan look, so I got rid of a lot of them. Yours look fantastic!

  6. Kim, I have old, embroidered aprons hanging in my back entrance hall which leads to our kitchen. I have them hanging from on old, carved, rectangular architectural piece. I love the look of yours, too!

  11. I always wear an apron, and several of them belonged to my grandmother. Your kitchen is so pretty, it makes me want to get in there and make some hot biscuits!

    Happy Friday to you!

  12. I know just what you mean Kim. I went though that country phase and then went traditional. I love farmhouse mixed with traditional in my home, but if anything even sniff's of "country" I run in the other direction! LOVE the apron and that stool... SIGH!

  19. Hi Kim, yes I do. It`s a must for me :-) Love your beautiful ones. Enjoy your weekend, Alexandra PS: I love to mix farmhouse and french decor. And because I`m from Europe, I`m a bit inspired by the nordic style. Especially by Vibeke Design ♥

  20. I only started wearing aprons last year, when I found a really cute on at Ikea. I can't imagine why I didn't before...I've ruined lots of shirts with splatters, too!

  21. Your farmhouse kitchen is looking good
    I use my aprons also when cooking and eating LOL my bib

  22. Yes, I wear aprons when I BAKE! (Which I love to do.) Yours are so pretty. Funny, one of my favorites is an old one from WS too! It also sounds like our decorating styles have taken almost the exact same path, I started as country, then traditional and now, well, I guess it's a combo of French farmhouse and shabby chic with a little bit of industrial thrown in. Go figure:)

  26. That's a cute new apron. I like aprons but don't always wear one. I have one that I wear when I'm painting and it looks awful! It keep it in the laundry room.

  27. Cute new apron. I, too, like to wear an apron. I've many but only keep one or two hanging ready to use. My husband prefers a chef coat or jacket. ;-)

  28. Love your aprons, and the more I read the more I realize that many styles relate to others...love the spot of red.....

  29. I've been looking for a vintage apron, but haven't run across one yet. I did have a blue and white striped one once upon a time, but lost it somewhere along the way. Love your aprons!

  30. Your aprons are really nice and I like that they are pretty colours and patterns too. Something to keep in mind since I have splattered more than one shirt.

  31. Cute apron! I actually have a toile one just like yours!

  32. Aprons are a must. You have me thinking it's time to start collecting. I don't like the half aprons and the full you have are beautiful.

  33. Love the aprons! I, too, love wearing aprons when I cook and I have a couple that my grandmother wore when I was growing up in the 60s! Several years ago, my sister gave me an old-fashioned glass door knob like the one on our doors in the house where we grew up. It's made to hang on the wall but, unfortunately, I misplaced it. I was very pleased last year when I found the knob tucked away in a seldom-used drawer and it now hangs in my kitchen and holds my "current" apron, i.e. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day, etc. I'm so glad to see that so many other ladies love aprons, too! Thanks for sharing, Kim!

  35. Love your apron collection and especially the new addition! No, I don't wear aprons while cooking but I certainly need to do so! I have some old sweatshirts that I call my cooking clothes that I would be embarrassed to be seen in!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes! I. Wear aprons too. I am short so everything splashes on me. I have always hung my aprons in the kitchen like my Oma did. I love yours!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yes! I wear an apron every day. I have one for gardening, too--lots of deep pockets and tabs. Love your Farmhouse/French mix. I'm aiming for this look when I move and needed inspiration. Love your stool, and the toile/striped aprons are gorgeous.

  38. My daughter in law's sister moved to Franklin. I have always heard there are wonderful shops there! Tell us more!!

  39. I love the way you have your aprons displayed. I only wear an apron if I am cooking for company and have nice clothes on underneath. Usually by the time I cook dinner for my family, I am already in pretty casual clothes so I don't bother.

  41. I've wrecked so many blouses cooking without an apron…I do try to remember to wear on….this is SUCH a lovely vignette. So fresh and homey.

  42. I am an apron wearer from way back! I love your little corner of the kitchen Kim, and your aprons are just adorable. I have mine hanging on the door to the laundry room only it ends up with more jackets and dog leashes than anything else. I do need to find a spot to call my own like yours. Have a wonderful weekend!

  43. Farmhouse style and French country seem to have much in common. Tomorrow I'm posting on the cottage where we stayed in Franklin that was a perfect blend.

  44. Love everything about the little corner of your kitchen. The white pitcher looks great on the chippy black stool and the red and white apron is the perfect touch.

  45. No apron Kim. but I should, it would save my clothes a bit more.
    I do have some aprons mine in grey's blacls and whites. I have to tell you that stool is a perfect beauty. I have been wanting to add black into my home again being it is neutral enough. I would jump for joy if I could find a stool like yours weathered and worn.

    A beautiful Sunday to you.

  47. I have enjoyed seeing your style evolve Kim. Love your aprons, and yes I do where aprons.Like you, I have ruined a few pretty shirts because of something getting splashed on them.

  48. What is it about a faded red? I banished all red from my house a few years ago, after doing primitive, and country and lots of red for so long, but it snuck back in ;) Your aprons are darling and I love that super timeworn stool!!

  49. I wear an apron every day - one that I bought in New Orleans a few years ago. I'm in serious need of some new ones!
