Feature Friday: Faded Charm

For Feature Friday today, I met this blogger recently on Instagram and was drawn to her beautiful photos of chippy and vintage furnishings and such a casual cottage/farmhouse look to her house.  She uses fresh flowers and collects old things and her home is a visually beautiful showcase of her style.  Enjoy the tour of Kathleen’s Faded Charm.

Kathleen’s home is filled with wonderful and welcoming spaces that just look like down home. I love her green thumb too, so notice all the plants used throughout her home, inside and out.  I won’t try to narrate all the way through, but enjoy the photos!  She has a wonderful way with placing her vignettes just so.

How’s that for farmhouse style with chippy cottage goodness?  I thought you all might enjoy Kathleen’s pretty home and all her beautiful photos.  Just makes you want to go for a visit and enjoy those outdoor spaces too.  And I love her potting shed, don’t you?

  1. Love, love, love – I love everything about this home!

  2. What a lovely home. I want her patio! In fact, I got an idea for making use of the bottom of a broken birdbath that I could not bring myself to discard. Now it will be re-purposed as a flower pot stand.

  3. This is a beautiful home, thanks for sharing, Rhoda! I enjoyed perusing every photo! Happy Labor Day Weekend! Pam @ Everyday Living

  4. I just loved this home tour! Kathleen sure has a touch for using beautiful old pieces. And her patio area is to die for!

  5. I love Kathleen’s style! I’ve been following her blog for a few years now. She’s been featured in magazines too. Her style is just perfect! I love the way she uses beiges, Browns and architectural pieces in her home. Great feature! I love that you feature a variety of styles!

  6. Absolutely love it! I find neutral decors so elegant and calming. After living with lots of color and patterns most of my life, I have now gone mostly neutral myself. However, it would not be difficult to add color back in if I tire of it. Farmhouse style is one of my favorites as well!

  7. I LOVE this home!

  8. I just want to move in completely. Sell mine. Give it away, who cares… These pictures take me to the exact place I picture wanting to live at this time in my life. It seems calm, restful, comfortable, welcoming, fun, friendly, homey, everything I could ask for. I’m recovering from a spinal surgery living in an area of the country I never imagined I’d ever spend so many years of my life in but have due to my husbands work and needing educational services for my special needs children. We are finally becoming less tied and I see your house and I cry with delight and hope – maybe … Someday. It sure looks wonderful. And I can see us located finally further south where I’m from in a house with that warm relaxing feel … Ah! Thank you for sharing! Perhaps a hammock and a breeze off a lake or from a coast…. Can’t stop daydreaming now 🙂
