Inside the pages of a book - things that inspire me

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Over the next few posts I am going to share with you things that inspire me. These beautiful images are from a new book called New Farmhouse Style by Terry John Woods (first printing already sold out).... I am lucky to call Terry my friend as we have chatted for several years via email about renovating and the beautiful simplicity of white that we both love ....This book will definitely be on my shopping list for all my friends for Christmas and I really hope to be able to get some in for the shop as well...Terry's home has been featured in many American magazines and is truly breath taking!!!!!!!!!!

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. ~Charles W. Eliot

  1. This is everything I love ....white, distressed furniture, old white jugs, a few hydrangeas, and a few soft colours being allowed to creep in....absolutely beautiful. XXXX

  2. Oh I just love the grey furniture in the first couple of pictures! My most recent post has to do with grey furniture and may put a smile on your face if you care to pop over :o)

  3. This is my favorite new book. Please tell your friend how much his work is admired and the joy that it brings to those that are fortunate enough to browse through images of it.

  4. Hi,

  7. I recently bought his book and had so admired him from afar when I would see his things in the magazines, but the book, OMG! It's just awesome. I actually had three new books picked out and was having a tough time deciding which one to buy, but then...I turned the first page and knew immediately his was the one! I'm going to start dedicating a "White Wednesday" post that I'm part of entirely to his book starting next week and for the next couple of weeks. Please pass on to him just how awesome I think is style is. Most definatley a fan of his.
