Winter Living Room Refresh

A beautiful farmhouse living room that feels cozy, bright, and totally charming!

Hi, sweet friends! I’ll admit it was a little depressing at first when all the Christmas decor came down and was packed away for the year. Part of me loves the clean, uncluttered blank slate, and the other part of me misses the coziness and light and warmth. The lights on the tree and wreaths in all the windows and presents waiting to be opened and cookies baking in the oven… it’s pretty hard to top that feeling, especially once the dreary, cold winter weather sets in.

So I decided to update the living room a little bit to help ease the transition with some new pieces from Birch Lane, and I’m really excited to show you the changes. It looks so much brighter in here to me now, and I finally feel like I’ve nailed the look I’ve always wanted in our living room. What a difference swapping out just a few little items can make!

Favorites of 2016

Favorite photos of this beautiful Indiana farmhouse in 2016 by Liz Fourez of Love Grows Wild

And so another year begins on this little blog of mine... It would be completely cliche to say something like, "this year has been full of ups and downs", but quite frankly it has. At the beginning of last year, I was finally able to afford a complete renovation of our old farmhouse kitchen, and I'm still amazed at the before and after photos every time I look at them. And then in the midst of the renovation chaos, I wrote my very first book, … [Continue reading...]

Christmas Lights at Night

See this beautiful farmhouse all lit up at night for Christmas!

Christmas is now just around the corner, and today I get to share with you one of my favorite posts of the whole year. Over the last month or so I've given you a tour of what our little farmhouse looks like all decorated for Christmas during the day, but we all know that the true magic of the holidays happens at night when it's all dark in the house except for the glow of Christmas lights on the tree. It's beautiful and calm and peaceful and … [Continue reading...]

A Touch of Farmhouse Charm – Book Release Day!

The release of Liz Fourez's first book, A Touch of Farmhouse Charm - available now!

It was two summers ago when I first got the email from a wonderful publishing company asking if I would be interested in writing a book. I think I read and reread that email forty times just to make sure they didn't accidentally send it to me by mistake. I've always been open to the possibility of taking my ideas beyond this little blog, but did I have what it takes to become an author? I had no idea. Fast forward a few months to October, and … [Continue reading...]

Farmhouse Christmas Kitchen + Gingerbread Bundt Cake

A beautiful farmhouse kitchen decorated for the holidays!

The other day I was working on decorating our kitchen a little bit for the holidays, and I realized that this time last year we were still living with our old kitchen and just about to completely tear everything down almost to the studs. It feels like forever since we were living through that month long renovation with construction dust everywhere and eating microwave dinners more times than I want to count, but it is such an amazing feeling to … [Continue reading...]
