Where is your home located, and how long have you lived there?

We have lived in Wilmore, Kentucky for the past four years. It is a very small town with only two stoplights. We love it!

What is your favorite decorating style?

I love a modern farmhouse look when decorating my home.

Where do you get your decorating influence from the most?

I love getting inspiration from magazines, Pinterest, and other blogs. I also am influenced by the area that I live in. I am surrounded by beautiful horse farms, rolling hills, historic homes, barns, and other beautiful areas that inspire me!

In 5 words or less, your home is?

Cozy, simple, warm, loving, and joyful.

What is your favorite store or flea market to shop at?

I love shopping at a local antique mall called Twice as Nice. I also love shopping at Habitat ReStore stores.

Share one of your favorite decorating tricks or ideas:

My favorite tip is just to decorate with things that you love and make you happy! Things that represent you and your family. Remember to think outside of the box when decorating. Take something old and make it look brand new with a fresh coat of paint. I have rescued so many older pieces of furniture with a simple can of paint. It saves a lot of money, and it makes it an original!

Your favorite paint color, name and brand:

French Linen, Annie Sloan

What are your favorite things to collect right now?

Pillows! I have an obsession with pillows right now. They bring so much color and personality to a room! I also like to collect white dishware. You can never have too much!

What is your favorite room in your house, and why?

My favorite room is my kitchen because it is the heart of our home, and it is where a lot of activity happens! I love sitting around the table with my four boys and husband. I also think my kitchen represents my decorating style well. My open kitchen shelves definitely gives my home that farmhouse feel that I am after.

Your next project is:

We are adding a new front porch with a gabled roof onto our basic brick ranch! So excited!
