great room inspiration

While visiting my favorite blogs this morning, I came across this fabulous room at little green notebook.  It was done by the husband and wife design team of carrier and company and I think the color scheme is really quite wonderful.  I love that the fabric on the sofa and chairs looks like old flour sacks - one of my favorite things to use for pillows these days!  I also love to sisal/seagrass looking floor covering.  I am becoming more and more convinced that it is the way to go for us with our dark hardwood floors~

I also adore this bathroom from a barn conversion that they did.  How fabulous is this sink???

I love a barn re-do! This one is fantastic. What a wonderful place to spend a cozy winter afternoon.
Wouldn't it be fun to decorate that place for the holidays?
