This is the entrance foyer. The table is an antique that has been in my family since the 1940's. Fall decorations of pumpkins warms up the table-scape. The travel luggage festooned with greenery adds more interest tot he vignette.

I chose a mirror and cabinet that had a bit of a rich victorian feel because I wanted the room to feel a little plusher than your standard farmhouse bathroom. The shelving brackets on the back wall are reproductions, but I should have checked...

The rolling barn door everyone dreams about! All reclaimed wood and everyday hardware from my local tractor store ;) Also note the custom-made baseboard heater covers - a HUGE improvement over those ugly metal clunkers that are in most New England farmhouses.

Prestine 1960's: that would be the description of this bathroom when I bought my farmhouse. Yellow toilet, sink and shower. Psychedelic flower themed wallpaper. Orange carpet.

Our dining room, breakfast area, and kitchen are all an open floor plan. I've tried to pick colors that flow between the rooms well.

I excitedly decorated our front porch with a Halloween/Autumn theme, but only for this picture. Our homegrown pumpkins wouldn't last long in the 100+ degree temps this week!

We love spending time here during the holidays. We open the armoire and play our virtual fireplace CD which also has a selection of Christmas music. It's so serene.
