Your Most Asked Questions About #farmhousedialfano

 #FARMHOUSEDIALFANO / fireclay kitchen tile / boston based designer mstarr design

#farmhousedialfano is always a’changing and while it drives the hubs a little (a lot?) crazy, it also keeps my creative juices flowing and I’m thankful that I have a job that enables me to make said changes quite often. Throw a growing toddler into the mix and I feel I’m always trying to create the most functional yet beautiful home I can. I’m always so appreciative, and frankly honored, that I receive as many questions about our home as I do over on Instagram, and I’ve noticed over time that I get a lot of the same questions so I thought it would be a good idea to share the answers in one post here?! *I will be adding and updating to this post so be sure to check back often!


WHAT IS YOUR KITCHEN BACKSPLASH?

It’s the glazed thin brick from Fireclay Tile in klamath color. We installed it in a herringbone pattern with Laticrete grout in Siltstone. I’m obsessed with the variation in texture and that it can look more blue or grey depending on the lighting. For more deets, check out this post and this IGTV!

WHERE IS YOUR COUCH FROM?

You love our couch, as do we. It’s from Interior Define and we have the Maxwell sectional with left chaise in pebble weave linen fabric. (*Note: the fabric isn’t available anymore but the replacement is Oat and it’s a performance pebble weave which I would love to have had!) ID offers custom products with tons of fabric, length, depth, and leg options but without paying custom prices. Read more about our couch selection in this post.

WHAT IS THE PAINT COLOR IN YOUR LIVING ROOM?

It’s Benjamin Moore White Dove. a classic and one of my favorite warm white paint colors. When we bought the house, we had 1 day between closing and moving so got as much painting out of the way as possible. I hemmed and hawed over which white to go with and couldn’t be happier with how the White Dove looks in here.

WHAT ARE YOUR WOVEN WINDOW TREATMENTS?

Hands down this is your most asked question. And I get it because they’re awesome. All shades in our home are Hunter Douglas including in spaces you haven’t seen (because they’re ugly) such as the bathrooms and hallways. I partnered with a local shop Innuwindow in 2019 to make the switch and I can’t speak highly enough about how much they transformed our home. Learn all about them in this post.


WHAT IS YOUR DINING ROOM CEILING MADE OF AND WHAT COLOR? This was an easy update we made at the end of 2019 and it’s one of my favorite details in the house. I worked with Stikwood, a company that makes sustainable peel + stick wood planks (made from reclaimed wood). We went with Golden Oak and it imparts the loveliest glow at all times of the day. Bonus: the install process was so easy (Bill and I did it in a day).

WHERE ARE YOUR ART LEDGES FROM?

This is the second most asked question I receive and far and away, the most purchased product by you guys. Our ledges were made by Rowe Station Woodworks in a custom size (something they offer for all their products) and in Maple. Couldn’t love them more.


WHERE IS YOUR DINING ROOM LIGHT FROM?

It’s from Rejuvenation! The Berkshire Linear Pendant in Oil Rubbed Bronze (which looks black) and white linen shades. Bonus: it can swivel if you need to change up the orientation of your space, something we did!

WHERE IS THE WALLPAPER IN MAX’S ROOM FROM?

It’s the light Oh Deer mural from Anewall Decor, and it’s peel + stick. It’s added the perfect amount of childhood whimsy and we even had it in the dark color first (yeah I’m nuts)!


WHAT IS THE PAINT COLOR IN MAX’S ROOM?

The top is Benjamin Moore White Dove and the bottom is Benjamin Moore Victoriana.

WHERE IS THE OPEN SHELVING SHELVING IN YOUR KITCHEN FROM?

When we installed the backsplash, I changed up the shelving. We used heavy duty brackets from Shelfology and used wood that was cut, milled, and sanded at a lumber yard (I added a clear sealer before install and am actually considering staining them dark soon!). Shelfology can also do the shelves for you too though.

WHAT COLOR IS THE SHIPLAP IN YOUR BEDROOM?


Both are Clare…the green is Current Mood and it’s an absolute dream. The greige is Classic which is the loveliest neutral that feels appropriate for our old house. Read more about the decisions on these colors as part of the #mStarrxohidesign makeover (side note…full reveal of both rooms are coming oh so soon! We photographed Jess’ room a couple weeks ago but we got 14” of snow the day my room was scheduled to be photographed and then we went right into the holidays.
