Every time I see this rustic farmhouse living room by Groves & Co. I get chills. That’s a bit dramatic but this space is just absolute perfection. I knew I wanted to start this blog off with a bang, and no space is more bang and intro worthy than this. The beams, the stone, the rug, the capiz chandelier, I can’t pick a favorite element. Each item on its own is divine, but together they richly harmonize in concert. The rustic, natural feel of the space is warm, cozy, and inviting. I can picture many good conversations (probably about how beautiful the house is) happening in those chairs.
- Striped rug – Striped rugs work in almost any setting and with most styles.
- Painting – Don’t live in the mountains? Don’t have lodge style beams in your home? Bring a touch of mountain whimsy via artwork by framing up a Bierstadt print.
- Coffee table – Target’s Threshold line consistently nails it. This coffee table emulates the circular coffee table above and looks mighty fine doing it. It also has a matching end table.
- Floor lamp – One of these days I will own a tripod floor lamp like this. It brings the eye up just enough and adds [another] touch of warmth.
- Chair – Comfy chair for ogling over this rustic farmhouse living room. This pillow would look perfect nestled on it.
- Tufted leather bench – Every home needs a bench. Perfect in an entryway for removing shoes (so no one dirties up the rug…don’t care if that’s the point of rugs.)
- Light – This light! I think this light might actually make the space for me. I doubt it gives off a ton of light, but capiz adds relaxed glamour to any space it graces. *sigh*
- Side table – I’ve contemplated buying this so many times. It’d be a great conversation piece for all my introverts out there.
- Coasters – We should establish right now that I’m all about unique coasters. Don’t have a huge stone fireplace? No worries! Buy some stones to set your drinks on. Same, same.
