Hi friends! It feels like forever since I’ve been on here, though I know that’s not true – I posted just last week! But I think because time is going slowly while we’re all home, and I’ve lost track of what day it is (do any of you feel that way too?), everything feels like it happened weeks ago. Time seems to be simultaneously going fast and slow, haha!
If you’ve been a follower or subscriber of mine for any length of time, then I’m sure you know I’m a long time fan of designer Brooke Giannetti. I’ve featured her designs in the pages of Maison de Cinq many times, and I was an early reader of her popular blog, Velvet & Linen. During the time, I followed the building of her dream home, Patina Farm, lapping up each post detailing the process. Hers was one of the first blogs I ever followed, and to say she’s been an inspiration is an understatement. She is probably the single biggest influence on my style, and definitely hands down my favorite designer.
Happy Friday everyone! If you’re a regular reader, you know that on Fridays I usually do a “Friday Favorites” post, however, I have something special to share with you! Instead, I’m joining some blogging friends to bring you a Room Transformation blog hop! And if you’re coming here from Meme Hill, welcome. We hope that our stories of renovating, re-doing, or simply refreshing a space will inspire you and give you ideas for your own homes!
I’m definitely a kitchen lover; it’s my absolute favorite room in the house. And I also adore French style. So putting the two together is absolute perfection to me! French farmhouse kitchens is a look that I’ve always gravitated to. It’s a little more rustic in style. Rather than just echoing “French Country” like mine and many other kitchens do, these either are actual farmhouse kitchens or look like they could be right in the middle of Provence.
