A Real Farmhouse

1.14.2016

If y'all have read my blog for any length of time then you know I am drawn to farmhouse style and have added a bit of it in some of my home especially one of the guest rooms. I would love to live in a small farmhouse style home some day, but not sure that will ever happen. Thank goodness there are bloggers who do live in real farmhouses and I can live through them. Y'all are in for a treat today as Susan shares her beautiful farmhouse.

Hello, I am so excited to be here at Savvy Southern Style! Kim, thank you so much for introducing me to your readers. I am a fellow blogger at Love of Home and have followed Kim's blog for a number of years. I love that we both have a love of red and like to change things up every now and then! I live in Western New York with my husband and three children. We live in an old farmhouse built in 1890. My childhood home is nearby and I always admired the farmhouse, never did I dream that one day it would be my home! We have done a lot over the last 16 years but there is always some project on my list! I hope you enjoy this glimpse into home.  I would love to answer any questions you might have.

   Our mudroom is the hub of our house! The kids have their own cubbies for their shoes, bags, etc. The beadboard has hooks all around for guests' coats.

  Our kitchen and family room were renovated 11 years ago. We wanted to create a more livable and family-friendly space.

Christmas Home Part 2 Love of Home Our family room is really the gathering spot for our family. It's a homework spot, tv watching, and most of the time we have a basketball net in the family room for the boys! It gets moved once a year for the tree. The built-ins were high on my wish list when renovating. I love displaying family photos and books.

  Kitchen decorated for ChristmasOur living room is at the front of the house so it's a little quieter spot. We use it for reading, studying, talking and visiting.

Our dining room is open to our living room. I found the wallpaper a long time ago and fell in love with it. The china cabinet was recently painted.
