The Latest From the Build and Final Interior Choices

House of Lilacs

Hello Friday!

A few house updates to share.

The last time I shared with you on our long time adventure in building a home,

we were not close to the interior finishes.

There still are many projects left to complete on the outside (stucco and stone).

Today, I thought I would share some of the interior choices made.

Hang in there…there are a few pictures!

Fireplace and Stone

(Stone is Pennsylvania Drystack)

Please checkout our rustic mantle.

This is a 12×12″ Blue Pine solid timber.

 We injected the natural elements of the stone and rustic mantle

to highlight a truly modern farmhouse style that was custom to us.

My husband installed the rustic timber that we chose.

A little on the “Modern Farmhouse” style.

 

Barn Doors

To replicate the everyday appeal of modern farmhouse decor,

we are adding barn doors for the rustic, vintage feel.

 

Our inspiration is from Rustica Hardware Barn Door

 

I will share the final on how this all comes together later.

I hope that this inspiration sparks some ideas for you

if you are working on a renovation or new build!

We are finding ways to mix natural elements with vintage accents

and industrial touches to create a beautiful look!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my post.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Since Mother’s Day is this Sunday, I wanted to wish moms a Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is a special day to celebrate mothers and grandmothers.

This post is all about Mother’s Day love!

Mother’s Day is a day that brings up a lot of emotions,

as I am missing my mom!

I love the quote,

“Mothers hold their children’s hands for a while, but their hearts forever.”

So true!

Because you never forget your mom or the special bond you have with her.

Thank you to my Mom and the most incredible grandmothers that have graced my life.

Wishing all the women who are mothers in every way, shape and form

a very Happy Mothers Day and a wonderful Sunday!
