For a couple years now I’ve had this dream house style floating around in my head. I love clean lines, white space, light pops of color, and simple decor. White exterior with black shutters and trim and pretty brown wood. I loved this style, but I couldn’t put my finger on what to CALL it. Finally, I was searching through Pinterest and I found it .. “Modern Farmhouse”. I was so thankful to finally have a name to what I loved. Then, by a fluke Shelby and I discovered The Fixer Upper TV show. YES! YES! YES! That is it!The style of our things now does not fit the Modern Farmhouse style, but more of a college apartment style. Mixed and matched, nice pieces blended with 30 year old pieces that are falling apart. It’s a mess.. no style.. no togetherness.. no anything. But, it’s what we’ve kept since we moved so much with the military. Our place now isn’t permanent either, so we still haven’t really put any decorative roots down. Soon, we will be able to (hopefully) find a place that is OURS and we can do whatever we want with it. We can finally settle down, finally put curtains up.. and make it our HOME!
There are so many talented people out there who’s homes are absolutely beautiful. I love the bright airy feeling .. it just feels clean! I love it!
Very, very slowly I’ve been getting little pieces that I love so that we can start to shift our style towards the Modern Farmhouse look. (I’m talking like 1 thing every 6-8 months..haha) Even though our budget is tight, I can still dream thanks to Pinterest! My Modern Farmhouse board is my favorite board to pin to and to browse through. Here are some of my favorite things! (click on image to enlarge)
