It's amazing that THIS is about 10 minutes away from me! 5.8 acres on the outskirts of eastern Fort Worth, where it meets up with Arlington and Hurst. If I had half-a-mil, I would totally buy it! Our very own little Green Acres...
Outside, I could set up something like this for picnics on pretty spring days (like the one we're having today!)
And on the back porch, a place to take off your boots.
Here is the foyer as it is. Blah.
It's narrow, so you can't do a whole bunch. But lightening it up, adding a more modern console table, and a seagrass runner to the stairs would do wonders.
And a lantern.
Also, I'd add a mirror like this one to help bounce light around. (It makes a great place to check your makeup before you run out of the door...)
Living room. There's some potential.
Lighter walls with darker trim, charcoal doors and window sashes, woven window shades, natural rug.... neutral with splashes of color.
And some of these for decoration. Because I like them.
The dining room, once again, has some potential. But it's dark.
So, like the living room, do you lighten it up too?
Or, do you go with that cozy feeling and use darker colors?
The kitchen has red cabinets right now...
With a little white thrown in for good measure. Don't forget the butcher block island I'd have to add...
In the eating area, wouldn't it be fun to gather a bunch of mis-matched antique chairs around an old table? Oh, and the burlap balloon shades would be there too, because they're pretty.
Upstairs, we find a bedroom. Wait a minute... this looks familiar...
It looks so much better with a big antique mirror over the bed, don't you think?
Antique wood floors and flowy white curtains....
They didn't show a bathroom for this house, but if I were going to live here, this is what I'd like the bathroom to look like. Simple.
Well, it's about time to go and feed the miniature horses. Yes... because that's what we're going to raise on our farm!(awwwww....)
Hmmm.... it's always nice to dream, right?
Have a great weekend!
