Hi, I’m Latitia!
First of all, I’m so glad you chose to visit Farmhouse by Design!
Texas has been home my entire life. From the mild winters to the bluebonnets in spring to the unbelievable sunsets, Texas truly is amazing and will always have a special place in my heart. But I also have a dream to some day soon own a few acres of land with a small farmhouse and a small garden.
I am a dog mom to two spoiled Golden Retrievers – Aspen and Annie. In the summer of 2020 we traveled just outside of Breckenridge, Colorado to pick up Aspen. I had chosen the name Aspen before I ever knew she existed – and certainly before I knew she was in Colorado. In the fall of 2021 we again traveled to Colorado to bring home her sister, Annie – named after John Denver’s Annie’s Song that he wrote while in Aspen, Colorado. Both are now living their best lives in Texas where they love to play, go on road trips and sleep on the couch.
My full time job is in accounting, but home decor and cooking are my creative outlets. Farmhouse style – rustic, vintage, simple – is what I most gravitate toward. While I may not live on a traditional farm – though I would love to one day – I find a calm and appeal in the rustic simplicity of farmhouse style. It can be a blend of old and new, rustic and vintage, or even a touch of modern. It is a style born of simpler times and one that helps to create a place of calm in daily life. I have spent more time at home than ever before in the past year – as have so many of us. Now more than ever my home is truly my sanctuary – a place of retreat from the crazy world we live in. I hope to inspire you to make your house into a home and a place of comfort for you and your family.
