It's October 1st! We have been having gorgeous weather here in New England. The last several days have been beautifully sunny with crisp fall air. I've been decorating for fall around the house and felt inspired to create a fall tablescape. A little over a week ago, I went to the Profound Market which is a vintage market that takes place in Lancaster, MA. If you're local, I highly recommend checking it out. They bring in tons of local vendors, food trucks (which are delicious by the way) and...

Our side door is the main entryway we use for our home. I've always had a rocking chair there and tried to keep it visually welcoming with my decor but it felt like it needed a little something more. The inspiration for this entryway refresh was a sign that I had a local artist make. I had a vision for a personalized welcome sign to go in this space and Ann Marie of Thimble & Thicket totally nailed it! This is the image I sent to her of the...

One of my goals for this year, was to organize our house. I started the year off with organizing small areas, such as our linen closet. I also organized things like our spice cabinet and our DVD movie collection. I began purging things that we no longer need/use or that we just don't love anymore; in Marie Kondo's words, things that didn't "spark joy". While purging, I realized that I needed to get the rooms in our house in more of a "finished" or functioning state. Since we moved...

If you saw my previous post, then you might remember that one of my goals for this year is to get organized. For us, that doesn't only mean organizing spice drawers and linen closets, but to get the rooms in our house finished. There will always be a project of course, but my focus is to get them to a place where I have a better idea of what we need in that room in order for it to function. This month, I have been really focusing on...

As the new year rolled in, I thought about what I really want to focus on this year for 2019. I often have the same goals which is usually to eat healthier and exercise more regularly. While that is true and I do want to do all those things, I'd say my main focus for the year is to get organized. We moved into our home 3 years ago and we still have boxes scattered in the basement from that move. We've had a lot happen in those...

It's October and Fall is here! I love Fall in New England. The colors are beautiful this time of year. I've been slowly adding Fall decor throughout our house and the dining room was the most recent room I decorated. I decided to go with a mostly neutral color palette with hints of purples and peachy oranges. My mom gave me a set of purple gobblet glasses 8 years ago when we bought our first house. Those glasses were my inspiration for this tablescape. I placed a bunch of...

Hi Friends! It has been quite some time since I posted! I hope you all had a wonderful summer! Ours was great and busy! We spent a week in our favorite vacation spot in Ogunquit, ME and the rest just feels like it flew by. We have lots of exciting things happening over here at Graceful Farmhouse. When we had the plumber here to hook up the final items for our master bathroom, we asked him about a leaky faucet in one of our other bathrooms which then snowballed...

Yesterday, I posted about the state of our master bathroom when we moved in 2 1/2 years ago. If you missed it, you can go back and check it out here. Today, I am talking about the plans we have for it. We went with Edgecomb Gray by Benjamin Moore for the wall color. We wanted a warmer gray tone and everything to be light and airy feeling. For the shower tile, we chose white subway tile for the walls, a hexagonal pattern tile for the shower floor and white...
