Country/Farmhouse/Rustic Chic {Inspiration}

My husband and I love to watch HGTV. The thrill to watch ripping out carpets and tearing down walls and of course the big final reveals with fabulous design never gets old. Often I ask him what he does and doesn't like about the space and it's always a happy moment when we both see something we agreeably love. And I make mental notes. I "pin" stuff or tear out magazine pictures and ask if he likes it, keeping the ones we both like. A couple weeks ago I made him sit down with me and look at a Pottery Barn catalogue and tell me which pictures he liked, which ones he could see us living in. (So nice of him to play along.) His love for Pottery Barn is....nonexistent. And we all know how I feel about it :)
We like woodbeams, stone fireplaces, earth tones and neutrals, coziness, small spaces, white kitchen cabinets....
So last week as I was reading one of my favorite blogs, the author used a term that clicked with me and I finally found a way to describe our "style", or what we WISH our decorating style was :)  I'm calling it country/farmhouse/rustic CHIC. Here are some pretty pictures we've collected. You should be able to click on each picture to go to the source. I hope you enjoy looking at them!
