Farmhouse Style meets Glam...

I love Farmhouse style and I love the glamorous look too. Heck I love every decorating style that I see here on the Blogs! But who has the budget to change out the living room every month!   So how do you mix these two together....take a look and you tell me!

I have a lot of wall space in the family room, which connects to the kitchen, which connects to the entryway and so on and so forth.  It's the open concept that I love, to an extent. Um. But I'll not preach on that today.

I have big walls to fill.  So this large tobacco basket fills up a lot of blank wall space.  Since I don't have the budget for new chairs, these 20 year old wing backs (covered a gazillion times) will have to do.

So, tobacco basket, traditional wing back chair, plus a glam faux fur rug used as a throw and a chic shredded pillow equals ??? style.  Guess I'll call it Farmhouse Luxe.

 We Bloggers are constantly falling in love with everyone else's decorating style, but honestly it doesn't always work in our homes. So you see it is possible to work with what you have by maybe adding something inexpensive here and there.

You can add a new pillow or in my case a faux fur rug, maybe a new lamp or basket or something you've found at the thrift or your favorite vintage shop.  I've learned over the years that it's always good to decorate with what you love and not get caught up in the latest decorating trends.  

Show me or tell me how you deal with your decorating brain overload....I'd love to know.

Isn't it just crazy how we get caught up in that --hmmm...should I get rid of this and get that? Hmmmm...should I repaint? I need a new rug? Sometime for me just rearranging what I have and shifting it to different rooms (or even positions in a room) make a difference for me. Something that looked tired suddenly looks fresh. xo Diana

It looks awesome. I think moving things around can really make a difference. Shopping your own house and bringing different things in to make a statement is so much fun. I love your glam luxe look. Very pretty.

Hiya Sissie! Changing up accessories is the way I go too. Love that tobacco basket! There's a lot of stuff I love looking at that I could never do in my own house. Farmhouse glam works for me! J.

Cute. I'm always changing things up. I got rid of my wing backs and have regretted ever since.
