Bishop Farm Kennels Project
This newly renovated space has come a long way since it was previously a garage. The foundation at Bishop Farm Kennels was a clean slate. And for a wonderful pair of newlyweds, it was all about furniture and décor and making the open area a cozy retreat for the bridal party during the pre-wedding festivities, and for the sweet couple once they return home from their honeymoon.
Although the area is indoor we had to choose carefully on furniture & fabrics. The owners have a bustling kennel business right outside the back door, and life on a farm can get pretty messy. A great tip for my clients and anyone who is concerned about fabrics or rugs is that Scotch guard is your best friend. Usually one will be able to treat a standard sofa. So, if you have found the perfect chair for your space as we did here- Scotch guard it!! Don’t settle your style because you need function and durability too.
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home and I’d have to agree with this one. The kitchen is open to the living room which makes for a more functional flow in between. The island is oversized and could handle six bar stools. We chose to go with a metal finish on them to tie into the other metal elements in the home. The complete place setting that I used were all bridal shower gifts and part of their registry. I always try to use what you have before purchasing. I find that using what you already own allows the budget to be expanded in more needed areas. As it was needed more in the living room than the kitchen.
My favorite little corner and it still is. Sometimes there are little nooks that make the whole space come together so easily, and after looking through only about 50 shots from every angle of this small area I’d say I was obsessed! I love the sweet picture of a couple about to embark on the rest of their story. I am so thankful and blessed that they asked me to be a page in their story. I hope this home sees many days of laughter, family, friends, and love.
