Welcome ! So nice you could stop by. What's more of a farm house than the one set up for the famous love story ; The Bridges Of Madison County. Starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood. While Meryls husband and children are away she strikes up a lustleful love affair. A must see movie if you haven't.
After studying the picture scenes the beauty of real farmhouse decor is a far cry from the modern farmhouse which lacks color and many real farmhouse items, but beautiful in bright whites and mild wood tones. Farmhouse style has taken on many rolls such as modern, shabby chic,
In any case the photos from the movie set are familiar to our farmhouse styles of today. Open shelving, I see how it looks like cabinet doors are removed. Lots of wall shelves. A bright yellow metal table and chairs, funny I can remember my grams and it was also like an island right in the middle of the kitchen. Oh and that massive Hoosier cabinet oh my , love that. They can be found today but with a pretty steep price tag. Looks like metal cabinetry along with a farmhouse sink that most of us long for . What about the floral wallpaper? Wallpaper has made a comeback recently, maybe not the huge floral print. One thing I don't see too much of is the perfect printed Shiney linoleum. As I have researched linoleum choices of today it has come a long way it seems to be thicker for a more comfy step and the patterns are actually very beautiful with many mimicking wood floors.
I like the look of a real farmhouse kitchen, it blasts color and character. So what's your farmhouse style? Here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air I think we have a bit of it all.
Some of the Farmhouse elements that are very common of today that I don't see back then are the big farmhouse tables that include 4 chairs and a bench. I'm seeing alot of metal lighting also now indoors but not really back then. How many of you will watch a movie but instead of really concentrating on the story your spying all the decor? That's me alright. So let's take a peek at some real Farmhouse !
This is the outside of this spectacular farmhouse and of course Clints old pickup. A wonderful movie with an undieing love story.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed a bit of yesteryear!
Have a joyful day!
