Pottery Barn Introduces Farmhouse??? WHAT???

Have any of you been to Pottery Barn lately? Or visited their website?? I was a little intrigued when I got my last catalog in the mail. Farmhouse at Pottery barn??? Could this be true?? I was shocked when I went to and saw that it is in fact true!!! For those of you who know me, you know this is totally my style. Although, I have a hard time referring to my style as "Farmhouse" being that I do not, nor have I ever lived on a farm. I really don't think I would do so well on a farm to be honest. Anyway, back to the topic at hand, I love this look (whatever it may be called) and I am so excited that Pottery Barn is creating items that fit the bill. Here are a few of the items I considered "drool worthy" from their website. Enjoy!!

(I love Pottery Barn, however, I feel that some of these items could be found at antique stores or flea markets. I think the reproductions are fantastic, but sometimes I like the "hunt". So, use these pictures for inspiration. Who knows what you can find when you really look!!!)

This is my FAVORITE picture. I love the blue paint they used with the crisp black frames. I also LOVE all the natural elements, very earthy.

I LOVE quilts, I can't have enough of them!!!

Again, love quilts!!!!

Old wore baskets are great for storage in the kitchen. They can hold a lot and are super sturdy. However, I think if you searched hard enough, you could find these at an antique shop or flea market.

Pretty light. This would be great in a kitchen over a table or island.

More quilts, I can't help myself!!

Old iron chairs are great for displaying things just like they have here. I bet we all have one or two old chairs around that we could fix up and put on a porch, or even hang on a wall??!!

Now, these look fab! But I REALLY think these could be found at a flea market (or the back of your cabinets??)!! But they look great!!!

Again, another item I bet we could find elsewhere. (And I am SURE for a fraction of the cost!!!)
Sorry PB, I had to throw it out there!!! What do you think about PB's new Farmhouse Collection??? What is your style???

This makes me want to go antiquing! I am a sucker for baskets lately and I love that big chunky one in the first photo. I also like the big round stones, stacked or in rows; what an easy way to decorate! As soon as the snow melts, I'm gathering some choice rocks from the garden. (Or from a state park...shhhh!)

I LOVE the Farmhouse look as well. I do think you can find many of these items at a Flea Market or an Auction. Mere, we should go to an auction together!! That would be a blast! I have started collecting chairs from Auctions. It is my newest guilty pleasure.

I love some of the very same things you do!! I would have to say my taste is farmhouse! I do live on a farm in east central Kansas. Our house is over 80 years old, and love everything about, but the paneling. (But you can't have everything! Hubby bought house because of this! YUCK!) lol
I love to go to the flea markets and auctions with my best friend!! I am rubbing off on her! lol. Thank you sooo much for sharing with us! I will be back often to check it out! Debi xo
