Hello all! I hope that things are going well for you today. We are plugging right along at the Farmhouse. I am enjoying the changing leaves and the cooler temps. Speaking of…today I thought that I would visit with you for a minute about the natural elements that people are using in their home decor. Okay with you? Great. You are such a team player. 😉
Have you noticed that wood has made a major comeback? I am blown away by this. I guess when you are are child of the late seventies and early eighties…all of your childhood memories are wrapped in paneling. Actually some people still have it….and it’s a good thing. I believe that eventually…it will come back with a bang…at least in some form. Anyone spied planked walls lately? Pretty much the same concept. (Sorta.) I told my husband years ago, when Martha started promoting wood…that it would catch on again. Good eye momma….good eye.
Yes….I have jumped on the bandwagon…in a way. I love the warmth that wood adds to the Farmhouse. Natural elements are beautiful and simple. I love to decorate with pine cones and acorns and leaves. Pine cones can be eased into Christmas decor and if you have dried gourds…they will last for years to come.
I’m thinking of going a bit more simple at Christmas this year. I love the message of Christmas but sometimes the hub bub overwhelms me. Maybe we need a woodland theme at the farmhouse this year…with a bit of mercury glass sparkle. That sounds fun doesn’t it? Hmmmmmm………
Covering up my Sheetrock, (Not really Mr. Dirtroad, don’t be afraid to come home.)
I agree wood is very appealing. I have a lot of oak in my home. Lots of sanding staining there but it is pretty to me. But….but. I never never ever never will use wood paneling! Now however if one used real wood panels that would be beautiful! on a personal note wood I think is easier to touch up. Today’s project was sanding and giving Adams bathroom cabinets a face lift. They are as old as he is, but with a little paper and stain and tomorrow clear coat, good as new. Looking forward to seeing fall colors in the trees soon. I heard gonna be best colors in years!
Carol….How fun…that little project that you have going on. I’ll bet that it will turn out fabulous. Wood is very cozy. That is so exciting about the trees…I hadn’t heard that…but I believe it. They are already starting to put on quite a show. ~k.
Give me Plastic… Just Kidding Iam from the Tupperware Generation, Green Paneling, Orange Counter Tops, and Shag Carpet. What’s Old Is New. Good thing I like to repurpose, recycle and reuse.
Sis. B…..That is hilarious. I know exactly what you are talking about…because by the time I came along…people still had all of that…and were thinking about replacing it. 😉 I think…that I had gold shag when I was a little girl. That bright orange Tupperware…still catches my eye. ~k.
