Last winter Charlotte of Ciburbanity got a group of bloggers together to help design the interior spaces of a Habitat for Humanity House in a small Connecticut town. I worked with my neighbor Kris of Driven by Decor on the kitchen and dining room. Kris and I were able to meet with the homeowner in the space while it was still under construction. With the help of Pinterest we were able to share ideas for inspiration. After our first meeting, it was apparent that she liked farmhouse with a bit of industrial feel. The fist thing I thought of were the crates that Kris has in her own kitchen. The homeowner wanted a farmhouse table. The Ikea table fits in the space beautifully and the color is actually the same as the wooden beam just above the dining area. It has the ability to open into a larger table to seat 6 or 8. The counter tops are mostly black and so we went with black chairs donated by Wayfair and accessories from Ikea really pulled the look together. For a complete list of sources see below and click on the blog names to see the rest of the house.
Bloggers Heart Humanity was the idea of Charlotte’s and we could not have done it without these generous sponsors and the bloggers who put their time and creative energy into turning a house into a home for a very sweet family.
Hometalk – They gave us a cash donation. In our case, we were able to take that money and spend it at Ikea on a table that’s perfect for the family and space and things like the black dishes, silverware and a few other accessories.
Wayfair – They gave us generous gift cards that we could use for anything on their site…which as we all know, Wayfair has everything you need! We used the gift cards to purchase the black dining chairs and the three piece deck set which is right off the kitchen. The black hanging pendant above the dining table is also from Wayfair!
Anchor Hocking – We used glass canisters, coffee mugs, glassware, salt and pepper, sugar and creamer, and a coffee canister all from Anchor Hocking. We used pantry labels from The Creativity Exchange that you can download for free.
I think the crates donated by Farmhouse Wares sets the look for the entire space.
Now head over to these bloggers and see the rest of the house!
