Things We Love: Farmhouse Sinks

This is the time of year we always start dreaming about a farmhouse. The weather starts to get colder (Well, theoretically… It’s still 75 degrees, but that can’t possibly last forever.) and it has us dreaming of cowboy boots and Barbour jackets, bonfires and oyster roasts, all in the comfort of our very own acreage with a charming little cabin. So, no, we’re probably not going to be acquiring a farmhouse any time soon. But why not daydream about the next best thing:  farmhouse sinks! Perfect for washing all those homegrown vegetables, (or, you know, the ones you bought…) it’s as close as your kitchen can get to the fields. Unless, of course, it is actually in the fields… In which case, we’d love to come visit! Take a peek at these gorgeous farmhouse sinks and let us know what you think!

Things We Love: Cast Iron Sinks in The Bathroom

Good morning, Design Chicers! It is a beautiful day for a book club luncheon in my lovely hometown of Salisbury, NC. When it’s several book clubs together, all the better! The Slightly South of Simple tour is off to a great start because of book clubs and garden clubs, which we would imagine are some of the oldest and most beloved organizations around.

But, sometimes, there’s really no need to reinvent the wheel.

When you’ve got a good thing going, why not stick with it?

Cast iron sinks have been around almost as long as bathrooms themselves, and their enduring style and timeless attitude is a playful nod to the past, one that Ansley, the interior designer protagonist in Slightly South of Simple would love as she redesigns the historic homes in her town of Peachtree Bluff, Georgia.

Cast iron sinks come in as many styles as their are bathrooms.

Things We Love: Console Sinks

We see it first thing in the morning, last thing at night and multiple times in between. So it should be the crowing jewel of the bathroom, right? Far from plain Jane, standard sinks, these fabulous console sinks become a beautiful bathroom focal point. What could be better?

One Room Challenge Week 5

IMG_0807

Week five. And we’re starting to forget what the old, green, linoleum-filled, windowless kitchen looked like. But, at the same time, we’re starting to question whether this one is ever going to come together! (This is Danny… he has basically lived here these past five weeks, so we thought he may as well be in the pictures!) 

IMG_0806

We’re thrilled with the cabinets, the knobs, the windows, the floors… But, as you may notice, there is a lack of loveliness in that soffit that needs to be addressed, and, yes, we still have the wrong sinks and counters. Sigh. We are assured that they are going to be changed. Here’s hoping it’s by next week!
