 As noisy as the internet has become these days, it’s always a breath of fresh air to come across a blog that is a quiet spot of inspiration.

 Beautiful photos and even better ideas have kept us glued to our screen and coming back daily to Stone Gable.

Farmhouse Kitchen

From gardening to recipes, tabletop decor to DIY, and, of course, photographing her own lovely home, Yvonne’s blog offers up inspiration every day. Is there anything better than a farmhouse sink full of fresh white flowers? (Well, maybe the smells that are always coming out of Yvonne’s fabulous kitchen!)

 We are so enamored of her American farmhouse lifestyle, and Yvonne is one of those women that embraces every aspect of her idyllic world. We feel lucky that she takes the time to share her pink peonies and vintage summer benches with us!

Monday Musings:Dining Room Inspiration

The dining room at the Beaufort house still has a long way to go to reach its full fabulous potential, but we’re starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
These are the before photos, just to be clear 🙂
This was one of our inspiration photos for how we want the dining room to feel. Fresh, crisp and totally laid back. 
This wall of fish inspired us to create an art wall in the dining room as well.
The idea of directors chairs with a farm table came from this fabulous photo. 
Currey and Co
A pair of these stunning oyster chandeliers will light our table.

Halo Style
We love the solid, rustic feel of this farm table from Halo Style. It’s plenty big for all the entertaining we can’t wait to do!

Kerri Shipp painted nine beautiful, neutral corals for us to create the art wall of our dreams!
Regina Andrew Alabaster quatrefoil lamp
The pictures don’t do this stunning alabaster lamp justice. It’s the perfect addition to…
Worlds Away
This wonderful bar cart that will add a little hint of glamour.
Kenian Imports (similar to this one)
A beachy set of bamboo chairs will finish off our dining room look.

Feeding the Farm

1st Option
Whether you have a Brady-sized family or love entertaining friends, a king-sized kitchen table is crucial for feeding a crowd. From the farm to the beach to the most glamorous home, we don’t think there’s a single space where a farm table isn’t welcome. 
Bella Mancini Designs
Starkly beautiful, these tables need few accessories.  
Attic Mag
And are perfect with any sort of light fixture, from a more rustic iron like this… 
Amy Neunsinger Design
To a glamorous chandelier like this.
Bright, Bold and Beautiful

It simply depends on the look you are trying to achieve. For the record, this is a look we adore–in the right space, of course. Wildflowers, mason jars, well-loved light fixtures. It’s a throwback to a simpler time, isn’t it?

Darling Chic

But, on the flip side, we wouldn’t trade our modern kitchens and silver for anything, which is why we have decided we need multiple vacation homes to do in all of the styles we love. Now we just need some willing volunteers to donate their homes. Any takers?

Decorpad
Love this wall of prints.

Elle Decor
This is what I really think of when I think of a farmhouse table. You can tell it’s a true antique, or, at the very least, that someone worked hard to make it look well loved!
Living, Etc.

These Louis ghost chairs are amazing with the farm table, and, admittedly, had we not seen them with our own eyes, we would have thought them too light to balance out such a hearty table. As a side note, my mother-in-law loves these chairs and is getting a pint-sized one for the baby! 

Restoration Hardware

I have to say that I love the look of this as well. These light fixtures are so incredible, and an upholstered dining chair is one of my favorite things.

Kohler
Mom has always been skeptical of the upholstered-back dining chair, but she’s starting to come around more and more. The fact that she chose these pictures is a good, good sign, I think! 
Thanks for stopping by today!
