If you love farm houses as much as me, then you are going to LOVE today’s featured home, which is the second feature in my new Charming Home Series! And if you love the shabby chic style, you’ll love it even more! Laurie at Heaven’s Walk has the most romantic and charming farm house I believe I’ve ever seen. She has a gift for adding soft, romantic details to every room. But why believe me? Come see for yourself …
Laurie’s front porch is a clear indicator of what you’ll see once you cross the threshold.
Lots of romance, ruffles, flowers, and plenty of white!
If you didn’t know better, you’d think you just stepped into Rachel Ashwell’s home (she’s the creator of the much-famed shabby chic style). Ruffles and wicker grace Laurie’s shabby chic farm house lending a sweet essence to her dining room.
You’ll glimpse touches of French persuasion throughout her home.
Laurie infuses an enchanting and delicate romance into every room.
Even farm fresh cherry pies get served on a soft back drop of delicate flowers.
To keep things from looking too sweet, Laurie emphasizes charming farm house elements with rustic DIY projects like these wooden shutters that open to the grassy knoll and lush gardens outside (which you’ll see later).
The dining room mantel is decorated with window panes and softened with a few plants.
A vintage wicker chair adds additional charm and texture to the space.
Blue, pink, and white are standard colors in the shabby chic farm house decorating scheme. Laurie beautifully incorporates all 3 throughout her prairie home. Laurie is a truly sweet soul and what I love so much about her charming home is that it’s a true reflection of her spirit.
Even puppy gets a pretty place to curl up and take a nap.
And her linens … oh her gorgeous, gorgeous linens! Aren’t they dreamy?
And speaking of dreams …
Laurie makes these pretty dream catchers to grace her romantic interiors.
As long as we’re talking about dreams, we might as well mosey on upstairs to the bedrooms, filled with shabby chic goodness in the form of ruffles and pink crochet. I don’t imagine Laurie ever has nightmares in this soft, cozy bed.
At the other end of the bedroom are big windows you’ll often see in farm houses. They let in plenty of sunlight!
The guest room looks like something straight out of a Bed and Breakfast resort. Who wouldn’t want to sleep here? Feminine details create oodles of charm in Laurie’s shabby chic farm house.
The DIY closet barn doors lend a rustic feel to the guest bedroom.
The bathroom is oh so charming with its bead board walls, claw foot tub, and gorgeous built-in cabinet with a mirror! They just don’t make houses like this anymore.
Laurie’s shabby chic romantic style spills outside to the deck.
The melodic waterfall spills into the pond while the arbor in the background invites you to explore more of the spacious grounds. When you visit Laurie’s blog, you’ll see that her landscape is equally pretty in the winter months too.
Laurie’s shabby chic farm house makes my heart sing. Her home is full of romance and charm, exuding the grace and sweetness of its owner. Visit Laurie at Heaven’s Walk and I know you’ll fall in love with her genuine spirit!
A special thanks to Laurie for opening her charming home and heart to everyone!
