There's nothing more nostalgic in the fall & winter than sipping on a nice mug of hot cocoa on a chilly day. It's a drink both sweet and rich that makes you feel cozy and at home no matter where you are. Not to mention, what cup of hot chocolate doesn't stir up wonderful memories of us as children sipping on a fresh mug of the good stuff after playing outside in the snow all day?
We've spent a lot of time on Instagram this year, and we mean A LOT. With the pandemic shutting down so much of the outside world and needing a bit of escapism from the realities of every day life, social media has really provided us with a nice escape. One of our favorite corners of the Instagram world in 2020 was the home decor community, and especially the farmhouse decor space! So we've gathered up our FAVORITE farmhouse decor influencers of 2020, and seriously, you need to follow all of these amazing people!
As fall starts to roll around again this year, we are so excited to take part in all of our favorite fall traditions and activities. From decorating our home to drinking a cozy hot drink from our local coffee shop, there's just something about the Fall season that makes us feel warm and happy inside. Above all those though, there's the time-honored tradition of going to a pumpkin patch, finding that perfect Jack-O-Lantern gourd, and maybe even picking up some apple cider or other fall goodies!
Chickens are such a fun addition to any backyard or small homestead; they can provide us with eggs, meat, and teach our kids about raising animals, responsibility, and nature! But above just owning chickens, we really think that they should live a comfortable life as well, at least as much as we can help it! That's why we LOVE when we see unique and beautiful chicken coops on Instagram and Pinterest.
Popular with just about everyone, from those who are expert gardeners all the way to those who basically kill every plant they touch, succulents have been rising in popularity over the past several years. It's not too hard to understand why, they are easy to take care of and they come in so many different beautiful varieties. You can create a fun terrarium with them to create depth in your plants, and they give off a relaxing, zen vibe.
One of our favorite things about spring, and I'm sure you would agree, is that we get to watch all of the flowers start to bloom! Whether they are wildflowers on a hike or walk, or flowers in our yard, Spring is truly a beautiful season!
One of my favorite features of a classic farmhouse is the front porch, even better if it's a large wraparound porch. The front porch can really set the tone for a whole home. If it's cozy and welcoming, it can make the house feel instantly warm and happy. If the porch isn't well kept and doesn't seem to have much personality, it can make the home feel cold and not cared for.
