Lake House/ Farm House

I've been decorating our lake house with some farm house furniture and I'm loving it.




I just recently found this wonderful farmhouse cabinet for the living area. Just what I've wanted in this space.
I'm going for a elegant french farmhouse look in this home. I think the beautiful glass pieces adds a touch of elegance to the room. I love the large tapastry but what I'm really wanting above the farm cabinet is a really large french mirror. I think every room needs a mirror. I would love to hear your thoughts..... tapastry or french mirror.

















This is one of my favorite pieces in the house. The perfect place to house some of my cherub collection.


I've had this potting bench for years and had never used it. It works great to house my many little pots. I still have some work to do and changes to make here. I have gotten a lot done in the lake house but still have a few more projects to do and will show before and after pictures as soon as I get the time to tackle them. Hope everyone is having a wonderful and Sunday!!!

Love that potting bench, Daphne! Those scallops on it are great. I like the tapestry over your buffet, but think you could go either way {mirror or tapestry}. What would a mirror be reflecting? Sometimes that's a good way to help decide which way to go.

SO beautiful, Daphne...every bit of it! Although I love the tapestry, I think you really would love having a gorgeous old mirror there...needs a bit more light, I think!

Enjoy the process, my friend...I know you will!

Yes, a mirror would add more light and hopefully reflect something pretty, but I adore that tapestry, so make sure to use it somewhere and let us see! Your house is wonderful!

Love all you're doing at the lake house! The tapestry is lovely, but like you, I do have a weakness for those gorgeous french mirrors! I know you'll make it beautiful either way!
Big hugs,

Love the potting bench Daphne and love the tapestry, a mirror would be lovely too as long as you have another place for the beautiful tapestry as it is a lovely piece. Have a great weekend:) Hugs Marilou

Hi Daphne!!
Awww thank you so much for stopping by! I've sure missed ya *winks* Love that farmhouse cabinet! But Hmmmmm tough call on what to put above it because I really love that tapestry....I do think an ornate-ish oval-ish (kwim?) French mirror would be equally fab though, so you'll just have to show us when you find the perfect mirror *winks*...Oh and that fireplace shelf...I'd like to grab it and run right outta your house! Lol! Vanna

I just love your house. That fireplace is just stunning and your cherubs are perfect for it. I think the French mirror would be wonderful above the cabinet but I also like the tapestry. Won't you come by and share at Totally Transformed Tuesday? I know my readers would love to see your home. Hope to see you there. :-) Peggy http://pjhdesignsoneofakind.blogspot.com

I love the pieces you are adding to the lakehouse Daphne! That buffet is such a great piece. I love the tapestry over it, but a mirror would lighten the space, so either one is great. You have such a great eye, so I know whatever you do it will be perfect! I LOVE your beautiful mantle and the cherubs that adorn it. I love anything angel and cherub so of course this caught my eye : )
I love the p-bench and I'm crushin' on the chippy pink watering can!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would pick the mirrors. Mirrors tend to give the room a larger appearance and they are gorgeous. Now the tapestry is great but just not having the impact you seem to want. It is great that you are finally getting use of your potting bench.
