Farmhouse Living With MacKenzie-Childs

mackenzie-childs-farmhouseThere are those brands that we wear or have in our home simply because we like the way they look, and there are those that do just a little more in our lives. They tell a story, evoke our senses, and inspire the very way we live our lives. I’ve long known that MacKenzie-Childs falls in the latter of those categories, and earlier this month, I got to find out why for myself.

Nestled atop rolling fields of hay and blossoming gardens sits the charming MacKenzie-Childs farmhouse, a Victorian-style house that’s so picturesque, it feels as though a Virginia Lee Burton illustration from a children’s book has come to life before your eyes. In the quaint, historical town of Aurora, New York, you’re a long way from Texas, but it’s almost impossible to believe you’re in the same state that’s home to the hustle and bustle of NYC.

As you look just beyond the farmhouse, amidst the nostalgic chatter of roosters cuckooing, ducklings chirping and the all-too familiar (for this Texas girl) bellowing of cattle, you’ll find a former dairy farm-restored- MacKenzie-Childs palace. This is the MacKenzie-Childs Headquarters, a whimsical, wondrous property I thought only existed in fairytales.

Keep reading to explore the magic of the Mackenzie-Childs headquarters and the brand’s home town of Aurora, New York…an experience I was so lucky to be a part of earlier this spring.

As promised, this year I’m featuring more interior posts on my blog, starting with little reveals in each of the rooms of our current house (and we’ll be moving by the end of the year – so there will be more to come!) So far, I’ve revealed my colorful chic office, our entryway credenza and bar cart, our living room revamp and even talked about our new mattress in the master bedroom. You may have noticed our bedroom was a little bar eat the time, which is why I’m so excited to show you what we’ve done since then, thanks to a bedding and decor refresh with my friends at Unison Home.

I’ll spare you the details since I’ve shared them so many times, but I couldn’t think of a better way to test out our new Lull mattress than with 12 sweet sleeping fur baby angels by my side. As you can see, the mattress is puppy-approved and me and Cole have been sleeping heavenly since switching to our Lull mattress.

As promised, this year I’m going to be sharing a lot more home features here on the blog. It will especially be a regular thing here on VF once Cole and I move into our first-ever home later this year (eeekkk – can’t wait!), but until then, I’ll be sharing a few peeks at our current space (which we also love and have been renting since we got married!).

A new house isn’t the only thing new that 2017 has in store for us. If you follow me on instagram you’ve probably already met Miss Lady, the chocolate Labrador puppy we chose out of the 12 puppies that our dog Lucky and Marley had to make a forever home with. Today, Miss Lady (who now has her own instagram account she shares with Lucky – follow her here!) and I are tickled to reveal our living room, featuring our AMAZING new carpet (which she will probably enjoy as much as we will) from my friends at FLOR. If you haven’t heard about FLOR yet and you’re in the market for a new rug or carpeting of any size/style for your home, you’re gonna wanna read this!
