Who wouldn’t love the thought of a white picket fence, a front porch with white wicker chairs and a huge weeping willow in the front yard?  We can dream, right??  Although not all of us are able to say we live in a farmhouse , we can definitely make our home feel like one.  Simply add accents and some lavender candles and wala!  Its a farmhouse retreat:)  Here are some of my favorite finds of the week.

White Accents

Nothing says farmhouse, like the color white.  Add white dishes, ceramic pitchers, tablecloths, figurines, etc to give your space a farmhouse make over.

Add a mirror over your fireplace.

White pitchers are perfect for wild flowers or a few beautiful hydrangeas.

White dishes with coffee cups add crisp charm to your floating shelves.  Sprinkle wth some   unique items such as a scale clock or a spool of twine.  I love these bunny bowls sold at Painted Fox Homes.

Farmhouse Wall Decor

Adding signs to a shelf or on you favorite wall add life to any room.
