This week for the Noel Mignon All About Me Friday Blogging challenge we are assigned to describe our homes. What is our home's color scheme/style & where did we get our inspiration for our homes.
Both my husband and I love the Fall. It is our favorite season. We love the colors of it, the feel of it, the warmth and coziness about it . . . and we wanted to bring that feeling into our home.
One day while shopping I looked at a bag of dried beans for 12 bean soup and thought to myself . . . "This is it! This is Fall! These are the colors I want to spread throughout our home!"
So that's it . . . the inspiration for our home began with our favorite season and a bag of beans. LOL!
Our style is very traditional, but with a bit of old world and coziness thrown in. We wanted our home to have a feeling of timelessness, but a place where people feel like they can stay and chat awhile. I love chenille fabrics, landscape artwork, natural materials and warm colors -- creams, dark browns, reds, golds, and greens. There's still a LOT to be done in this home. We've been here just over a year . . . so there's still lots of accessorizing and window treatments to do. :)
Living Room Couch
Leather couches are a must with kids. And I love furniture with interesting curves and details.
Our kitchen chairs are cushioned and cozy so we can sit around and chat with friends and be comfortable. :)
Light cabinets in the kitchen help the dark floors from feeling too heavy and overwhelming.
I also love handmade furniture pieces. I'll show you two of my favorites. This piece in our hallway.
And this kitchen piece we adapted to be a TV cabinet in our bedroom. I LOVE how tall it is!
Red used to be my very favorite color, but has recently taken second place to dusty teal blue. I snuck in some blue in our bedroom . . .
And my scraproom is painted blue with cream cabinets.
I hope you enjoyed this short tour of my home. :) I'd love to see yours! Come join in on our blogging challenges in the Noel Mignon Forum and link us up to your posts!
Enjoy your weekend!
