My Favorite Room....Rooms For Rent


Hello Savvy Southern Style readers, my name is Bre, and I blog over at Rooms FOR Rent, where I share my love for farmhouse decor, all things w h i t e, and dessert! I was thrilled when Kim asked me to join her and share my favorite room with all of you. Kim has a lovely home and beautiful taste, and I am honored to be here with you today. 

My favorite room in our house is our living room. It is our main hangout spot, the first room to be overtaken by toys and crumbs, and throw pillows on the floor, which is a good sign that it's comfortable.

It was my favorite room from the start because the sunlight floods the room, and of course there's my white couch! I have loved white slip covers ever since I can remember.  

We got ours from IKEA about 8 years ago, despite everyone saying I was nuts, because I wouldn't want it once I had kids, one thing I learned through that, was if you know yourself well enough, and know what you like well enough, it's worth it. I know the type of personality I have, so throwing them in the washer every 6 weeks or so wasn't a big deal, to me I looked at it as getting a brand new couch every time :) And believe me we have spilt plenty of chocolate milk on them, but the best part about white, is you can bleach it, no worries. 

We've been in our house for 3 years now, and even though this was the first room to be completely unpacked and set up, it has certainly undergone the most changes. Achieving the neutral space I craved took the longest. Lots of tweaking along the way, and really figuring out how to get the look I was wanting. To see how I got there, you can check out these posts to see how I got the space you are looking at today. (first update, new paint color, neutral space.)

One of my favorite things to do when I'm craving some change is swapping out my curtains, and throw pillows. It provides just enough of the change I want, and when I'm ready to change again I swap things back. For now simple white linen like drapes hang, also from IKEA, to emphasize the summer sun we are about to get, keeping things light and airy.

I don't always have fresh flowers, but when I'm craving some, 
hydrangeas of any color are my favorite treat! 

One of my favorite features in this old farmhouse was the open concept feeling in the dining and living room. They are divided by a half wall with white columns on either side.

Most recently we tackled an Ana White build, and made this printer cabinet to house all of our dvd's, and tv. I'm not quite done with the gallery wall behind it, just a few more things to hang, but I love the feel it adds to the space. 

You can read all about this project here.

Thank you so much for taking a tour of my favorite room! I'm so glad to be here with all of you today, and hope you enjoyed :) To see all the latest happenings, join me on Instagram (roomsforrent) where I love to show what project or space I'm working on next!

  8. What a pretty room! I love her style. I haven't seen her blog before, so now I will go take a look. Thanks for introducing her today.

  9. Bre's style is lovely and I agree with her about just throwing white slipcovers in the wash with some bleach. Thanks for the introduction.

  10. Kim,I have been a subscriber of your blog for several years now. All of a sudden I am no longer getting it by email.AND it is not just me.There are several blogs I I got daily and all have stopped by email.I saw today and yesterday there are others out there who are in the same boat. Whatever Rhoda from Southern Hospitality did has not corrected it. Mine started in Dec. with Housepality Designs. I notified Shirley but it never was corrected and neither of us knew what to do.Now,it is a bunch. Hope someone can figure it out because it is not just me. Thanks

    1. Linda it seems to be a feedburner issue and really no way for me to do anything about it. I hope you will follow be by bloglovin and you should get a daily feed in your email.

  11. Another luvly room Kim. I stumbled upon Bre's blog a few weeks ago and quickly fell in luv with her relaxed style.
    Thanks for inviting me in for a visit ladies.

  21. I love Bre's home! So much in fact that I'm also featuring her this Sunday. She's a popular girl this weekend! :)

  22. Hi Bre!!! I sure can see why this is your favorite room, it is wonderful!!! I love the white and all of your accessories are perfect. Just wanted to give you a little tip: I am a floral designer and whenever you put fresh flowers in a vase, remove all leaves that would be in the water. They give off a gas that kills the flowers quicker. Now I will come see you at your blog too. Thanks, Kim for another beautiful room!
