See this ?Airy Country House ...

see this farmhouse? how pretty is it covered in sheer curtains ? but wait , lets look inside first!!
welcome to the living room. what can I say about it? such a chic space , very airy and light . I could definetly relax in there .. see the blue chairs ? they are covered in velvet & organza slipcovers.. how amazing is that? the dinning room , with its The Scandinavian tradition of painted floors the country style kitchen , my I would die for the space in this kitchen!

my favorite part: the vintage buffet!!
her girl's room..
an old church window brought in for a touch of scandanavian style

some treats she always have on the tables for guests , as she loves to throw parties and gatherings..

meet Carrie , who knows how to style her home in the way she & her family feel most comfortable in..
now , where do I start?

the faucet is an iron hand pump that dates to the late 1800s; Filtering light from the window is a curtain that's actually a dishtowel edged in crocheted hens and chicks.

Storage solved..

I was never sure on how to store my books & knick knacks , since our home is almost all open space , the living room flows into the kitchen flows into thedinning room which flows into my corner which I call my Studio.. hubby wants furniture pieces that are not just Shelving ( a.k.a ikea..sorry ! ) .. he wants furniture that tells stories. I couldn't agree more , though I was ok with the idea of shelving from Ikea , cz I have Sooo much clutter & books!! ..

But look at this!! this just solved it! I love how they combined the vintage cupboards for storage and each one is different yet fits so well !!
