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

A Shabby Moment in Time said...

Omigosh! I just had the best time perusing the store! So glad I found it...I will add it on my blog's "favorite links" section!
It was difficult to make choices, but if I won that very generous giftcard, I think I would start with at least two of the yummy grain bags. I also really like the sap bucket along with the zinc pot. And I guess we'll throw in those cool utility drawers while we're on a roll. :) Thanks for the chance to be part of this giveaway! Stop in at my blog when you have a moment. Love a visit from you.
Blessings and Hugs,

Great shop! It's hard to choose what I would use the credit for but I think it might be the galvanized trough-great as a bottled drink cooler!

I was lucky enough to visit White Flower Farmhouse on a vacation to LI 2 summers ago...and yes, what a perfect little shop it is!

And, I have to add, that I will take one of those ADORABLE puppies as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love huge dogs, and my dream dog has always been a Great Dane, however, I think I've changed it to the new breed.. Mastiffs are a favorite as well, so the combo would be just the perfect dog. Congratulations to a new puppy and your successful blog. Love your style!

Anonymous said...

Maria,
Congrats on your blog anniverary. I, too, dream in white. I have been lucky enough to visit Lori's shop (the perk of having a best friend who lives in nearby Southold) and love her simple, fresh style. Last summer I bought some cork fishing floats there (among other things) a would love to add the glass fishing floats to my collection. I also adore the bread boards and picture one cozying up to my plain old store bought ones. Thanks again for all the inspiration!

Congratulations on one year of blogging, Maria! I love Lori's style too and if I ever get up to her neck of the woods, I plan on visiting White Flower Farmhouse in person! :) If I should be the lucky winner of this giveaway, those blue-and-white ticking pillows are lovely, as is the herb wreath.

I think this is a great giveaway..there are so many things to choose from but the linens are the most beautiful..the blog and shop are inspirational.
