{ entry } farm girl @ heart.

Thursday, March 8, 2012


When I first learned that AyA Kitchens & Baths was flying one lucky blogger to Toronto to attend BlogPodium, I was beyond hopeful... it's not everyday that little Okanagan me gets to meet other bloggers face-to-face especially THE Lindsay Stephenson from @littlehouseblog. I have much to learn from the 'big kids' {including how to make a decent moodboard} AND with our 2012 home addition breaking ground this spring I need all the design inspiration I can get.

For those of you who've seen the inside of our 2 bed, 1 bath abode, I think you'll agree when I say our aesthetic is more 'earthy' than 'vintage', but something about an updated farm kitchen brings out the Carrie Underwood in me.

While a moodboard connoisseur I am NOT, here’s my dream kitchen submission for AyA (pronounced i'ya) Kitchens & Baths' ahh-mazingly generous contest: 
  • apron sinks with wall mounted faucets 
  • distressed cupboards under butcher block counter tops 
  • barn wood furniture on top of refurbished floors
  • ceiling pot racks paired with open shelving 
  • chalkboard walls & wildflowers

... it doesn't get much more country than that and when we do finally find that affordable piece of acreage close to town with a rundown yet structurally sound farmhouse, I'll be installing these Richmond Vintage Artisan cupboards in 'distressed latte' with my very own hands #daretodream.

fingers crossed that I'll be 'BlogPodium Bound' come May!

You've designed such a warm & cozy kitchen - especially love the refinished floors and barn wood furniture. Also love your fresh & pretty colour palette :-)
