Looking at one of my most favourite rooms in our house - to keep my mind off of not being at #havenconf this year. 😭 #akadesignhome #modernfarmhouse #CottonStemHeartsDiningRooms

It's a gorgeous Saturday here! Later today there will be eight kids sitting around this table for dinner - after sunshine and swimming, of course! Plus four adults sitting somewhere else. 😂After almost 8 months in this house we are FINALLY making good on our hospitality promises and having wonderful people over to share it. Enjoy your Saturday, my friends! xo #akadesign #akadesignhome #saturdaymorning #farmhousestylesaturday

These two have had some fun adventures this week. I LOVE that cousins can have so much fun together. I also love the space in this kitchen for recipe making, video shooting, and memory making. Happy Friday night friends! #akadesignhome #canadaishome #financeit

Still haven't made ourselves a new blanket ladder and that arrow is still filling the space where the ladder should go. But it's Friday, so I can't be too mad! What are your plans for the weekend? #akadesignhome #fancyfarmhousefriday

Also #spottedatmichaels this week - for all you #goldlovers out there - how cool is that wall calendar/planner?! #ad #michaelsmakers

It's time for coffee! Summer hours have me all sleeping in and lazy in the morning. But slow mornings are making me bust my hump to get all the work done in the afternoon. 😂 What are your mornings looking like? #akadesignhome #Farmhousecozy #blackandwhitefarmhouse

Oh my gosh! @michaelsstores has some gorgeous new home decorate-y stuff!!!! You have to go see! #ad #spottedatmichaels #akadesignhome

Sundays like these are a little funny...I'm 'at' both @c4churchdurham and @c4northdurham but I don't get to worship, learn or see friends. But my Dean gets to serve on the worship team and my older kids get to learn, worship and serve. While I get to be taxi mom, and spend quality van time with the 'little one' who has a cold. And that's okay 'cause this week this is my way of serving and I wouldn't have it any other way! 🚕 🤧 🎶 💕

This guy rocks...last night she asked him to teach her how to make waffles. This morning they're both up and making them together. (Gluten free waffle recipe is up on my 'new' and still under construction blog ShannonAcheson.com!)

After a few months of searching, we've finally chosen a new coffee table
that fits perfectly in our space. It's from @artemanodecor and the wood is
from old fishing boats. If you live near one of their stores, you should
absolutely visit - it's like a travel journey to be experienced! Plus
Artemano plants a tree for each sale of a dining table, so they're reusing old
materials and helping our world! #ad #akadesignhome

This 'old' TV cabinet was given to me by a dear friend when her hubby accidentally bought a tv that was too big for it. It has housed our televisions, toys, clothes and now my office-y stuff (printer, paper, camera gear) and DVDs. It's also been a honey pine color, Aqua blue and now Eider White like our walls. Nothing like a staple piece to change and grow with your home and style! On the blog there's a decor staples checklist for the decorating essentials. It's handy to have when shopping or thrifting...so you don't bring home another something you don't need! Check it out: https://akadesign.ca. #akadesignhome #decorstaples

This kitchen of ours is not only pretty to look at, it's also really functional. See our original reveal post for sources and organization ideas. #akadesignhome #modernfarmhousekitchen
