Interior inspiration.

Here are a few photos that inspire me. My style is hard to define. I like industrial vintage, and I am drawn to the clean lines of french nordic. I think I just really like white. In most forms. Even ruffles I like if they are white.

These two photos are from a home featured in romantic homes magazine. I love anything feed/grain sack and I like how they just nailed the curtain up. In another photo of this house she has a thin stick that holds a sheer curtain up. Curtains are not a must have in most of the house because no one can see into the house without being on our property. But I will have some for sure in all the bedrooms.

The beam bench is beautiful. I am thinking we will have some extra beams so I can make one of these.

I want something like this in my laundry room. It has character.

I love this whole home. (Photo country living magazine.) After seeing this I actually bought ten chicken feeders on ebay that I am planning on making into lights. I am not sure where they will go yet. Mine are more a galvanized /rust color. But I could easily paint them. I like the mix of wood and white, with some black thrown in.

Photo from My scandinavian home. We have leather furniture right now that is going to go into the house. It is so practical with kids and animals. I like it here with all the white. And the hanging light in the room. Would look neat on either side of a bed.

Photo via Pinterest. The rough linen and the fairy lights. So fun for a kids room. (Although my kids rooms are sounding like they are going to be colorful). 😊

I have a pretty big blank slate right now which is exciting but a bit scary. I am hoping the ideas in my head translate well to the house.

  1. Let me know when I can move in! All these photos are beautiful and represent style that is going to be perfect for your farm house. I have serious beam envy…. Love, love, love! BTW, do you have a plan for how to adapt the chicken feeders to pendant lights? I am planning to convert old wooden crab pots to pendants for my place, but I can’t wrap my head around how to actually do it yet. I hope you will give me a DIY lesson when you do yours!

    • Haha! I will let you know. You can head this way. :). I don’t have a plan yet for how to turn the chicken feeders into lights. I have googled it a bit….but have not fully delved in. I actually have an old binder (a part of a farm implement from the 1920’s or 30’s. ). That I really want to make into a chandelier but I have not had very good feedback so far. I have not given up yet tho. I will let you know. The crab pots sound awesome.

      I really hope my interiors work out. It is such a different style from what is the norm here. Part of me doesn’t care what anyone thinks but part of me has a fear of someone walking in and looking at the house and totally not getting it. But ultimately I want a house that I love living in. And you gotta have a sense of humor…..not everyone is going to get it, I know that.

    • Thanks SBH. You get the stunning views and the ruins….two things that can’t ever be added into my home. If you got an old beam bench or mantle you will have it all. I am a bit green with envy at your ruins. 😊. I love history.
