farmhouse dreaming

This past weekend Sweet Man, the boys, Judea and I all piled in the trailblazer and went to the country to look at some property. Daydreaming the whole way there and back about country life.
The property had a very small, but livable house. The kind you live in while you make plans to build a bigger one or add an addition on.  Even though the trip was mostly just a fun excursion with a few "what if's" built in, While Sweet Man dreamed of planting soy beans or hay, and the boys daydreamed about fishing in the pond and wading in the creek, I couldn't help but daydream about decorating the small-but-well-lit family room in the little country house..

This is what I came up with, a happy, airy, comfy room with hints of industrial running through. Doesn't it look fun? Wouldn't you love to visit? Of course putting white flooring and furniture in a country house is probably the craziest idea ever but I don't care -this is my daydream remember?
(most sources on my Pinterest)

(Don't tell Sweet Man, but if we don't move to the country in the next year, I am completely re-doing our living/dining/kitchen areas and I might just have to use this board as the jumping off point!)

OK, so I forgot not everyone can get on Pinterest w/o an invite, so I am going to do my best to list where everything in the picture above came from.

White Chair and Couch-From Ikea.com, Blue Couch Slipcover from Bemz.com
Green Rug - from Walmart.com
White Washed Wood Flooring - Ikea.com
Poof and Metal Rolling Table - UrbanOutfitters.com
Camper Pillow - NotOnTheHighStreet.com
Oh La La Pillow, Farm House Picture and Doll House - Etsy.com
Gingham Curtains - Google Images Picture (they look similar to ones I already have)
Wire Light Fixture - Wisteria.com
Yellow Pillow - Country Living DIY
Camping is Fun poster - Society6
Great Outdoors hanging - House8810

Hope that helps!
