The little town of Good Hope, Georgia is such a sweet, charming place. It's so small that there isn't even a stop sign on the highway that runs through, only an old post office and a country store. It's a place that I spent a lot of time exploring when I was growing up and it's just far enough out of town to feel like you've taken a step back in time. There are still fields of cotton and canola, couples on their front porch rocking, and cows grazing. It's a place so familiar, so worn, and just right like an old pair of jeans. Not much feels better than going to a place like that for me.
When I was a kid, my family was very close with a couple from Good Hope that I liked to call my second family. I was thrilled when this family asked me out to their farm to finish a guest bedroom a few months back. I was overjoyed when they invited me back to update their den. Their house is a split level and the den was a few steps down from the main level. My goals were to brighten, lighten, and bring the focus up the room upward. We used their existing sofa, chairs, and love seat and added some wall and shelf decor, accessories, new window treatments, toy storage, and a new coffee table from Peters & Foster in Monroe, GA. I love how warm and cozy it still feels, even with the lighter paint color (Sherwin Williams Kilim Beige) and accent pieces.
I am finally becoming more comfortable with my new camera, the Canon Rebel t5i and this tripod that I purchased to use with it. I still have a lot to learn (angles and zooming are still really tricky for me!) but the quality of my photos seems to be improving a lot! I hope that you enjoy them.
