We have lived in our home for 12 years and I think I’ve finally figured out “our” style.
I like traditional and cottage/farmhouse style with a little bit of French country thrown in.
My husband is Texan all the way. He loves leather, cowhide and stained wood.
That’s why I call my blog, “Lilacs & Longhorns.” It represents the differences of our two styles.
I’ll be honest, it has taken me a long time to figure out how to combine my style with my husband’s. (Yes, he actually cares about the decor…darn!)
I don’t know why it was so tricky for me to add that masculine flair but it was.
Maybe it was because we were older when we got married and he owned a houseful of furniture…and it was good quality so I didn’t feel like I could ask him to get rid of it.
So, I tried my best to make do.
Now, our home is a blend of leather, stained woods as well as fabrics and finishes I love. I’ve worked hard to incorporate both masculine and feminine touches throughout our spaces.
I recently finished re-doing our formal dining room and I absolutely adore how it turned out.
I loved the large kitchen and open floor plan.
But, truth be told, I was a little disappointed that the sink didn’t overlook and outside window. For some reason, I have always wanted a kitchen sink with a window over it.
However, as much as I would love to have that, I have to admit that I don’t mind this view either.
Here’s a super quick peak at his room.
His room is usually a lego disaster so there’s no wide shot today! Hey, at least his bed is made!
