The Best Farmhouse Sinks

Bettijos Kitchen 52

I knew I wanted to put in a classic, farmhouse sink during my kitchen remodel (check out the progress at #SeventiesKitchenRehab on Instagram). I had no idea how difficult it would be to pick out the best farmhouse sinks. After all my research, I decided to compile and share what I’ve learned in this handy guide to purchasing a farmhouse sink. Be sure to pin this post so you’ll have it handy when you need it.

Guide to picking out the best farmhouse sink for your dream kitchen from @PagingSupermom

I’ve been smitten with these iconic farm sinks, also known as apron-front sinks, ever since we had one in a dusty basement apartment as newlyweds in Alexandria, VA, about 15 years ago. That sink was pretty much the only thing I liked about the place, but I remember it being so big I could almost take a bath in it.

THIS is the kitchen sink of my dreams. I figured that it would be pretty easy to find, but when I typed “farm sink” into the Home Depot website, I was quickly overwhelmed by choices… not only in design, styling and color but also in material. I knew I wanted plain and white, but I had no idea whether I wanted fireclay, cast iron or stainless steel. What type of apron front sink material is best?

Beautiful Adventures with Shutterfly

Shutterfly Home Decor Living Room 1

As we head into the cozy fall months, it’s fun to remember our summer adventures. So when Shutterfly asked us to create some home decor inspired by our recent travels, I knew exactly what vacations I wanted to be reminded of daily.

We travel quite a bit as a family, but some trips definitely turn out better than others. However, we’ve never regretted a vacation — when things don’t go as planned, we simply call it an adventure! And, as it turns out, my family LOVES a good adventure.

I just adore our new inspirational pillow and soft fleece blanket ensemble on our living room couch. This quote is exactly how I picture married life: a beautiful adventure with my best friend and our kids. It’s a fabulous daily reminder for me that, just like some trips, when things don’t go as planned, it’s simply another adventure.

Baby Boy Star Gazer Nursery Reveal

Star Space Nursery 57

I am so over the moon about Rockwell’s Star-Gazer Nursery — it was so fun to plan and create. We love to throw parties, and designing a room is so similar to designing a party, only you get to enjoy your creation for a lot longer. Since we already had a complete nursery setup from baby Modette, the objective here was to transform the space into something fitting of a boy with as little hassle and expense as possible. I fell in love with a bunch of awesome things from The Land of Nod and everything came together just as I envisioned. I have been dying to show the room to you; so let’s get this tour started…
