We're on our way home from a long weekend at The Farmhouse. It was another great weekend filled with more ideas and plans and even less time to accomplish them all...
the front porchwill be modern, yet traditional
porch rail - white posts with metal hog-wire to compliment the tin roof (that will be there someday)
porch ceiling - painted light blue (something about keeping the bugs & birds away...we just like how it will look!) to compliment the grey painted concrete floor
the exterior will be painted white - simple, farmhouse white
the living room will also be painted white in an eggshell sheen with semi gloss white for the trim & doors. We tried to get fancy with 'soft sage' & although it is a really soft, calm muted green - it was just too much. We decided to keep it simple & let the green from the outdoors be framed by the big beautiful windows.
Maybe it was the beautiful foot of snow that fell while we were up there (the first time we've actually seen it snow since we bought our home.) Or possibly it was due the research, writing and spreadsheets that I've been working on for my thesis, causing me to want simplicity. Whatever it was, it was clarity for both of us... Farmhouse White.
