A Rustic Retreat

{The inviting front porch of Trina and her family's country home.}

I've slowly been making my way through the blogs recommended in my reader survey last week and I am just blown away by how much beauty is out there! Thank you all for sharing your favorites. One of my happiest discoveries has been A Country Farmhouse, a lifestyle blog that chronicles the renovation of Trina and her husband's home as well as a few of her passions: "country life, antiques, old houses, and healthy living." I've never found myself pining for a country cottage so badly!

{The white walls and neutral furniture of the living room exude calm and serenity. What I wouldn't give to curl up by that fire!}
{In addition to having an eye for architecture and interior design, Trina is a brilliant photographer and stylist. I love this open display in their kitchen.}
{I love the contrast between the home's white walls and the couple's collection of antiques. The blank canvas gives the dark woods new life!}
{Have you ever seen a more darling setting for a dinner party? I adore the antique tablecloth and the hydrangeas spilling onto the porch.}
{Trina frequently shares pictures of farm-fresh flowers, styled into flawless little vignettes in her own home. The eye candy is endless!}
{There are just no words to describe that view.}

I adore that kitchen, in fact it has me thinking that I need to rip out some of the upper cabinets at our cabin this summer so I can have a similar look!

Hi!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Sorry for the late response - my arms are actually free for a few minutes (twins are asleep) so I'm typing quickly before I hear them stirring.

Love your blog - what a great new discovery, can't wait to look around.

X Trina
