Some rooms I love

Well……the roof is finished, the rain gutters and down spouts are in. Well actually were in two weeks ago. We are now waiting on our electrician, and we are waiting on him because he has been waiting on us, and now he is on another project.  (so I get more time to decide).  The great room is 50 by 30 with 28 foot ceilings. Trying to figure out how to light it has taken some thinking.

And frankly my brain is needing a rest from thinking about it…..so today I am going to post some pictures that inspire me.

This is from a home in Marfa Tx. I think the owner is a photographer from New York…..but I am not sure. I cut this out of a magazine years ago. And found it on Pinterest again. I love the floors…..and the openness. Well I love most everything about this picture.

How fun would a tipi be upstairs in the loft?

I added these because my dear friends thirteen year old daughter got a camera for her birthday, so she asked if she could come to the farm and take a few pictures. These are two of my favorites.

And I got a shot of her getting a shot of one of our horses.  (so cute).

School is out for the summer…..:). It is so great to be home and getting some projects accomplished!!!!

Thanks for reading…..sorry it’s been a bit slow around here.

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.
