White Flower Farmhouse Interview and a $200 White Flower Farmhouse Gift Card Giveaway


Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a great week.
I have a special interview with Lori, from White Flower Farmhouse.... and a giveaway....
I asked Lori, if I could purchase a gift card to her beautiful shop to go along with her interview,
I love Lori's Shop... and I think you will too...
Lori was so generous to go in on the gift card with me.
Thank you Lori!
Giveaway information will be at the bottom of this post...


I wanted to feature Lori today, not only because I love her designs, but also because Lori
is the person responsible for introducing me to the world of blogging.
I remember the day I discovered Lori's site.
I spent the evening going through her blogs, Frugal Farmhouse Design and White Flower Farmhouse Blog....
I was immediately drawn to her style. 
Lori can turn any house on a very tight budget into a beautiful farmhouse....

I hope you enjoy my interview with Lori, and get a chance to visit her website....
I will let Lori take it from here....



First off I want to congratulate you on the first year anniversary of your blog.   I cannot believe that it was just one year ago that we were having the conversation about you possibly starting a blog, and look at what you have achieved in only one year.  You have a true passion for what you do and it shows through you words and the camera lens.
You have done an incredible job with your blog and have achieved so much in this short of time.
Most of all you have become and inspiration to your readers.  Keep up the great work inspiring us.
I am looking forward to all the exciting moments the future will bring.
Happy one year blogging anniversary!
Maria asked me to say a little about myself and shop, even though this post really should be about her.
I will share a few things that she asked me to.

A picture of Lori's kitchen

What inspired you to start a blog (Frugal Farmhouse Design)?
I have always had a passion for creativity and design- especially on a budget.  Megan encouraged me to share it through a blog.   At the time I did not even know what a blog was!  I had no idea it would turn into what it has become today and I am forever grateful.
Lori's blog is called Frugal Farmhouse Design

Lori's kitchen was featured in Country Living 

How do you hope to inspire others with your blog, Frugal Farmhouse Design?
I want to get the message out that it does not take tons or even money to have a beautiful and classic home with great style.  I think that there is a lot of pressure out there in the design world to spend, spend, spend!  The trends are constantly changing, which keeps the consumer spending money.  My personal thoughts are that consumerism is at an all time high.  Some of these design trends are ridiculous, expensive, and wasteful.  Do you really think that a chair that looks like an airplane cockpit, or that bright orange graphic sofa is a good investment?   Will it still be in style 10 years from now?  Just something to ponder.

A Beach Cottage Porch Makeover...
I love how Lori paints so many of the floors in her makeovers gray....

How did you get started as an interior designer?
I left my career as a graphic designer 16 years ago to stay at home with my babies.   We had to live on my  husbands salary alonge, which is not easy to do on Long Island ( a wonderful but very expensive place to live unfortunately) I furnished almost my entire home with yard sale finds and thrift shop caste offs that I re-furbished or painted.  To make a long story short, friends and family saw what I was doing.  They would not believe what I could do with some old piece of "junk"  I started to get requests for certain items for other people and it just escalated from there.


How would you describe your design style?
My personal style is simple, calming, comfortable, clutter free, creamy whites and soft beige paint colors, lots of natural materials and textures.  I like to mix in vintage and a few unusual accessories too.


Where do you look for inspiration?
I can find inspiration in many different ways.  It might be an object or a color that sets the tone for a new room design.  If I had to choose a designer it would be Tricia Foley.   I love everything about her classic and simple style.


What is your favorite room to design in a home and why?
I love kitchens, to me they are the heart of the home.  I know that this is where I spend most of my time with my family.

click on the link above if you would like to read more about this makeover

What has been your biggest design challenge?
I am currently working on a project for New York Newsday, where I have to re-do a room with NO MONEY.
I can use what ever I can that is already in the home- Nothing else.  I am finding this one to be the biggest challenge.  I am loving it at the same time.

Click on the link above if you would like to read more about Lori's Beach Cottage Makeover

Do you have a favorite color of white paint that you like to use?  
It is a creamy white called, Ballet White by Benjamin Moore.

How does one go about achieving a farmhouse look in their own home?
Farmhouse style has been around for such a long time, it really has stood the test of time.  It amazes me that there are photos of old farmhouses in America taken almost 100 years ago and there are many things that not changed.  Classic pieces are always old pine tables, simple (often painted) furniture, wood floors, homespun linen, simple window treatments or shutters, ticking fabric, utilitarian collections.  Farmhouse style to me exudes an overall feeling of warmth and comfort.  A cozy and safe haven from the sometimes harsh world outside.


I love the name of your shop, White Flower Farmhouse, is there a story behind the name?
I love the color white, so I wanted to incorporate that into the name.  Farmhouse is the basic style of the shop.   I wanted to make sure that the shop would be an affordable place to buy from.  I made a rule when I first opened the doors that I would have the merchandise that would range from $1 and go no higher then $500.00  That is what has kept me going strong for over eight years.



Where is your shop located?   
In a very cool and popular tourist destination.  The North Fork of eastern Long Island in a town called Peconic.  Want to know a secret....this fork has much of what that south fork offers on the Hampton side only for MUCH LESS MONEY!!!

A picture of Lori's Shop
Thank you Maria, for giving me the opportunity to answer these questions for you.
To me the most important and fantastic thing about blogging is the friendships that build and become part of your life.  I am happy and grateful for the opportunity to get to know you this past year.  Congratulations on your first year of this wonderful adventure. 
  Love Lori

Thanks for this interview and for introducing me to this lovely shop. It would be so hard to choose, I saw so many things I like and the prices are great. I would start with a farm basket and the beautiful white serving dish.

Congrats, Maria, on one year of blogging.

Fondly,
Glenda

Blondie's Journal said...

This is a fantastic interview...I love Lori's insight into what makes a farmhouse feeling through design and thrifty pieces. I have almost completed my kitchen and her tips will help me with those last few details.

I have visited Lor's shop and I think I'd love to have the driftwood egret. We live on a lake and I am always trying to incorporate a few things that speak of nature and water. It really is a beautiful piece! I have also joined the following of Lori's blog!

Thanks so much to both of you!

XO,
Jane

I've been a window-shopper at White Flower Farmhouse for some time. Love the small zinc pots and any of the linens.

Brigid C said...

First of all, congrats on a successful year of blogging! At White Flower, I like lots of things but the galvanized trough and the zinc pots make me want to get outdoors and get planting.

NancyO. said...

Hi,
I posted this on my Facebook page.

Anonymous said...

Bethany said...

Oh my goodness! I had never seen Lori's blog and I think I might be hooked : ) If I were to win the gift card I would use it for the metal utility drawers, the herb wreath and soy candles. Unfortunately, what I really want is sold - the bank bag pillow. I think it's adorable and I love it even more since I'm from Maine!

tale of many cities said...

really lovely shop Lori has there! i would have chosen the market basket.. or any of the metal baskets for that matter! but looks as if they sell out FAST! so.. i LOVE the plated compote just as much, and i'd def grab that one up if i won! :)

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

Lori's blog is one of my favorites! If I were to win I would love a breadboard, sap bucket and the homespun sheets! She has so many beautiful and useful items the list could go on and on! Hope you have a wonderful day and thank you both for hosting such a fantastic giveaway!

Alaina said...

Congradulations on the year of blogging. You have inspired many of us along the way. White flower Farmhouse has some beautiful items, the bucket and the keys, old bottles, with $200.00 I could definately do some shopping. I hope to be a lucky one.

ChRiS said...

my list would be so long but for sure the galvenized trough (spelled wrong...sorry)

Hi Maria and Lori, I am so glad that you have had such success with your blog Maria and also Dreamy Whites.

Chania

Razmataz said...

On Facebook

Betsy said...

So hard to pick just one! I'd say the 'bank pillow' but it's sold, so my next choice would be the Brooklyn bottle. I think I 'need' to visit her shop-- and since I'm in CT... maybe it will happen someday!

Razmataz said...

On my blog too....

Crystal said...

Wow! So many beautiful things to choose from. I think I'd choose an assortment of hardware, baskets, and dishes. Or maybe use it as a down payment on a beautiful round farm table. Ooh. I wish. Thanks for the opportunity.

Niesz Vintage Home said...

Wow! What a gorgeous shop!
I'm in the process of remodeling and decorating a new house, so I could use (and love) pretty much everything on her site. But if I had to choose, I would probably head first to those lovely grain bags in the Linens section.

Love her blogs, too. I can see me losing several days browsing posts over there. :-)

Great post. Thanks for introducing me to this lovely shop. I would just adore having the homespun sheets.
The look wonderful, and I have a thing for linens.

Olivia and Me said...

Good Morning.. and wow, what a treat!!!! Let me see, if I won that 200.00 gift card.. I'd feel like a priness let loose in a candy store.

Hmm, items would be:

plated compote
pineapple mold
breadboard
soap dish
small bottles
german creamer
pitcher
four knobs
any wooden spoons
(I know, this list is over 200.. but I'd make up the difference of course!)

Love the sweet plated compote so much.

Thanks for this my dear!

with love,
Olivia & Me

Oh and congrats on your first year!!

Blue Ridge Altered Art said...

Congratulations on you spectacular one year anniversary. Oh my such an inspiring post. I found pieces of furniture in her home that I had debated if they would suit my home if painted white and now I have no doubt. Her shop is incredible and the prices are soooo much better than the antique shops in my area. I was so excited to see the glass floats and oh my the cutting boards. Thanks for hosting this giveaway and am wishing you many more years of blogging. Maria, you have been an inspiration to so many of us in the blogging world. ~~Sherry~~
