We’re in the midst of building a house, which has been one of the most fun {most work} projects I’ve ever done. I absolutely love every little detail and have been inspired by the farmhouse aesthetic along the way. Because remember, I wish to live in a barn …

I thought I’d share a few of my favorite details along the way, and the inspirations behind them. So today I’m sharing the subtle crossbuck detail that will give nod to the traditional barn “X” doors. We decided to do a double door on the front to really maximize the space and capture the essence of that grand barn door entrance, and I really love the solid crossbuck for the side door.

These details are all over the farm, from the inside of the barn doors to the long, dark fencing that lines the front of the property.  And because I think the art of careful juxtaposition in design is so important, I love the balance of bringing this “rustic” detail into a nice home exterior.

More to come! For a sneak peek into my total home design inspiration, take a peek at my Pinterest board here.

As summer comes to a {sad} end, I look back at my much-neglected, much loved blog and all the wonderful things I have to share these days and commit to being more frequent in my postings.

We’ve been “on the farm” for several months now. We’re in the midst of building a new house {and studio!} and as I’m sure the kids would put it – having the time of our lives living in the country with my in-laws on the family farm. It’s so beautiful here and I find a little dose of inspiration in something new every day.

I wish to live in a barn and this just might be as close as it comes for now.

Take a peek at my Instagram to get just a tiny glimpse of what we’ve been up to and I hope you’ll enjoy seeing a little more on the blog these days!

if there is one thing i love, it’s a wedding. have it take place in a restored barn in north carolina and I couldn’t possibly love it more. some of our wonderful friends, jen & alex were married at the gorgeous bascom in highlands, north carolina and as you can clearly see it couldn’t have been a more lovely affair.

the gorgeously neutral colors of the bridal party perfectly complemented the gorgeously worn wood of the towering barn-building, which is actually an arts museum currently as well. the space was just beautiful, with a boxwood backdrop for the ceremony itself. a wonderful breeze brought to life the large paper globes that hung from the complementing ceiling all night long.

the perfect reflection of this laid back couple, the whole occasion was simply gorgeous and effortless. i adored jen’s veil which looked about as heirloomed as it comes, and the soft look of her classic dress – she was just stunning don’t you think? And the rich color of alex’s suit was just perfect, i am a big fan of the suit and tie look – especially for an outdoor wedding.

though it was nearly impossible to choose just a few photos to highlight for this post, i quickly decided my favorite shot was the one above of the darling couple sitting in the most perfect setting and lighting i have ever seen. how simply perfect? and of course, one of my favorite parts of the evening was when alex got up on stage and serenaded his new bride – and all of us guests as well! it was the perfect evening for a perfect couple and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have been a part of the weekend wedding.

best wishes to jen & alex for a lifetime of wonderful memories!
