Modern country… who knew?!

Standard

Doing a little lunchtime drooling over the latest offerings from Temple & Webster (yes yes I may have ACCIDENTALLY bought something… my finger slipped I swear!) and was just browsing their site and they have a Find your Style section… with Modern Country! I didn’t even know that that was a thing… just thought it was me being finicky.

I found myself nodding along to the post agreeing with the style definition EXCEPT when it came to the “ongoing love affair with timber” part. I must confess, I’m really not a wood fan. It’s probably the main thing that bugs me about the country themed decor, wood on wood on wood. Bleeeeh. I’d be okay with it if it was whitewashed wood or painted wood. But au naturale… pass. Just not my thing… hope that doesn’t stop me joining the “proper bumpkin club”!

I also wanted to share this with you too:

Be sure to check out the video. Freaking AMAZING! I really want to make the door in the video. It looks relatively simple but to me is just so mind blowingly beautiful in it’s simplicity. A true cleverclogs door. I’ve been thinking about where I could put it in my house. Speaking of the house, a friend suggested I draw up my house plan in MS Visio to help “see” it, stroke of fkn brilliance there! So I have… wanna see?

(clicky clicky if you want to view it in it’s full glory)

This is probably what I’d call houseplan 1.0 because there are already tweaks in my mind going on. And all the windows haven’t been added in etc etc etc… it’s a very rough first draft modification of Viva Homes’ Ants Pants design (linkage in the blogroll). I’ve already bombarded them with a whole stack of questions and they’ve been brilliant so far so I can’t wait to actually start building with them 😉

Been really busy this week so I haven’t had much time to post but I am brewing a couple more decor type posts for you, hope you can wait til next time!
