Farm House Dining

Apartment Therapy just did a post on Farm House dining, I  drooled all over the keyboard. I love everything about this picture.

 Then I remembered that I have been promising people left and right for the last couple months that I would post updated pictures of my house. I have been putting it off because it isn't "finished". Then when I thought about it, I realized that one's house is never perfectly finished and exactly how they want it. Maybe some of you have that, but I know I never will. There is always something to be changed or something you are waiting to swap out. So without further adieu here is our farmhouse dining, or our interpretation of it.

I. Love. It. You have such a lovely space there! Your floors are beautiful, I love the colors you chose, and that painting is stunning! It looks like different dish patterns. Where did you get it? You guys are doing a great job!!

Your home will never be finished. It's an ongoing process evolving as your tastes change. Keep posting so you can look back. This is a great electronic journal/scrapbook.

Thank you everyone for giving me confidence that I'm doing okay with the decorating. You guys are awesome!!!

Of course I can share where I got the painting. I love to share all my great finds and secrets!

I got it from world market, here is the link to the painting: http://www.worldmarket.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4082777

They have a smaller square one as well which is very similar, but I wanted something that would fill the space.

Marisa,
You nailed that wall treatment! Looks awesome! The artwork is fabulous and it goes so well with those darling benches and chairs. If it's any consolation, we built our 'dream home' 8 years ago and it's still being finished! Patience... it's worth it!

Rural Revival said...

Wow! I'm one of those people too but my, I have never had a room look that good, and in such a quick turn around. Well done (even if it isn't).

Heather Walker said...

Wow, it looks great! Its so fun and kind of weird to see the house looking different. But Im so glad that you guys saw the potential of that house and are making it look really good.

The dining looks perfect, it remind me the old days when we used to farm at our old house by using Greenhouses http://www.growhouse-greenhouses.co.uk/greenhouses.php
