Hello, and welcome to Home Glow’s new website! It’s been a long labor of love … and has long been an item on my to-do list, as my little homemade site did not have the flexibility to do what I needed it to do! Thank you, Laurie at Creative Insights, for all your *insight* and artistry!
HUGE Sale on Show House Furnishings!
On to today’s topic! Even though professional photography is not slated to appear until the winter issue, Cottages & Bungalows Magazine has given me permission to leak some of my own iPhone pics of the “Great NH Escape Great Room” for its 2019 Project House with Yankee Barn Homes and C&B’s sister publication, American Farmhouse Style.
This is great news (for both you and me), because all of the items in the Great Room are for sale at amazing prices — and now I can tell my readers all about them! (Read to the end of the post for the SALE prices.)
Even though I envisioned Yankee Barn Homes’ awesome post-and-beam mountain farmhouse as a getaway home, I felt that the fictional owners would see it as a long-term backdrop for their family’s New Hampshire getaways, a Forever Home-Away-from-Home. Therefore, I wanted to use furnishings that were high-quality and would stand up to years of use, high value (because no one likes to waste money!), and yet fun and stylish for a vibrant and active family.
“East Hill” by Peter Batchelder, 30″ x 40″ expressionist painting of New Hampshire barn. Peter’s work was the inspirational launchpad for the whole room. Read my interview with artist Peter Batchelder here.
