Carole: “My home is very clutterful! I have some quirky collections, lots of vintage books, paint by number art and jars full of keys and coins.”
Kim: “I would hope that people would think my home is inviting and has a come sit-and-stay charm about it. But what’s most important to me is that it’s a place to gather with my family and friends!”
Recently we were asked to describe Farmyard Darlings style. Our style has been described as country chic or modern farmhouse even rustic and industrial; but basically what we want to educate our current and future customers is that our style is adaptive to any type of home!
Over the past several years, we’ve created custom furniture for Modern and Contemporary homes, Craftsman bungalows, Spanish-style homes, French Farmhouse, and many other styles. During all of these visits, we’ve consistently had the same advice; “Stop buying anything until you really get an understanding of what style brings out the best in you and what makes you happy. But most importantly, BE YOURSELF. Because everyone else is taken.”
Just recently, we installed a barn door in a beautiful, newly constructed modern farmhouse chock full of incredible one-of-a-kind pieces. Incredible space, tall ceilings, great layout, a GIANT kitchen and GREAT room. But best of all, it was the owners who made their place so inviting with a calm and cool vibe with a farmhouse style that’s been time tested.
What do we think about before we design and install our barn doors, farm tables, or other customer furniture?
How do they live? Do they have animals? Do they have quirks and needs that make up their unique style? When do they feel most at peace in their home? One customer’s response was….”I feel most at peace in our home when we are gathering at our table. But our table isn’t big enough.” Well, a Farmyard Darlings table fixed that problem! Another customer said “I feel most at peace in my sunroom, but it gets noisy at time.” Well, a Farmyard Darlings sliding barn door fixed that problem too!
So, what is your personal style? Let us know! We would love to hear from you…
Farmyard Love, Carole (& Kim too!)
