You know… I’ve been meaning to come on here and explain something for a while. Today’s post won’t get super deep into it, but I’m excited about these antique windows, and i tried something new in the dining room this weekend with some treasures that I found at our shop from one of my favorite pickers on the planet….
You see the thing I wanted to talk about deeper later is the topic of change. You know the big elephant in the room of me wanting to change things often. The short answer? I like to change things up. A lot. I like to try new things. Share new ideas with you guys. Give different daily inspiration that you can use I your own homes. I’m passionate about decorating and transforming our spaces & I hope in turn it helps others find passion & inspiration with the changes in our home decor. That’s the short answer. I’ll get to the long answer later. I talked about our dining room being too cabinet-ey a while back. I mean, there was 4 cabinets in the room & I felt that was two too many. So, this past week I was at our shop & Jordan from HoneyHomb Market came in with some amazing windows. Actually they were the coolest antique windows I have ever seen. The windows were so unique & I had never seen anything like them before & I knew they had to be at White Cottage Farm. I didn’t know where I wanted to hang them at first, but then I got the idea to take two of the cabinets out of our dining room & hang them on each side of the arch in the dining room that leads into the front living room. I moved the cabinets off of these two walls [one is going in an upstairs guest bedroom & another will be going on a different wall] & then we hung the windows on each side of the arch. A dream situation? To fit the windows in the wall & have windows looking into the front room. It would be kind of cool huh? I just hung the windows & didn’t really worry about anything beyond that as far as styling under the windows or planning what else will be under the windows as far as chairs, plants, or more, but you get the idea with my sweet little lemon trees & that extra chair from our sunroom.
The next situation? I love the green. Ya’ll know I love green. But in my curiosity I’m wondering what some other trim colors would look like. that might be a job for photoshop before I make the plunge to see what it would look like, but what about a greige, a black, a white, a taupe, the possibilities are endless. But for now these windows are hanging in the dining room on the far side of the wall in place of the big cabinets…
I love how open it is, how fresh it looks, & how the unique windows demand to be a focal point. I also love how the windows fit into my cottage greenhouse dream. What do you think of them? Let me know in the comments below. I will update you soon if I paint them & when I decorate around them… As always, THANK YOU for stopping by the blog today & everyday to see what we are up to. Ya’ll are the best & I love you mucho… thanks for supporting my need love for decor & changing things up. xx
