For Julie, family and friends are at the center of her home. She creates warm, inviting places for people to gather, open spaces for enjoying the outdoors, cozy corners for relaxing and resting, and plenty of room for making memories. But Julie knows what many may not: you don’t need to wait for the perfect house or acres of land to create the home of your dreams. Whether you’re live in a city center, out in the country, or are loving life in the suburbs, Little Farmstead Living is waiting for you—and with it, you can begin creating the home of your dreams . . . in the space you live in now.

Through stories of transforming a fixer-upper into a charming little farmhouse for her family, Julie reveals dozens of simple ways that everyone can bring warmth, joy, and meaning to their everyday homes, and to special occasions too.

  • New to farmhouse style? Julie encourages you to start small with easy-to-implement ideas for creating a casual, lived-in look that instantly puts both family and visitors at ease. Use her ideas right away!
  • Farmhouse flair beginning to take shape? Get inspired to update favorite areas by salvaging items from other parts of your home, or by taking a thrifting and antiquing adventure (including how to spot the gems and leave the junk).
  • Adventuring into a fuller farmstead life? Julie shares her family’s first steps toward tending animals (dogs, chickens, and Babydoll sheep, oh my!), and growing flower and vegetable gardens.

We’re thrilled to have Julie as a guest writer today, here to tell you more about her dream of living a farmstead life, just past the city limits. Welcome, Julie!


Hi! I’m Julie, author of the book Little Farmstead Living: Creating a Country Life Just Past the City Limits. I’m grateful for the talented team of people at Martingale that I was blessed to work with in publishing this book, which was a true labor of love. And I’m happy to be here with you today to share a little bit about the book and talk about a quilt that is meaningful to me…

Over the past months while working on the book, I’ve written our family’s story about moving to a little 2+ acre farmstead in the Pacific Northwest, complete with a farmhouse, barn, chicken coop, vegetable garden, and wide-open spaces. My husband and I had dreamed of a place where our three sons would have room to run free, a place where we could open the doors to family and friends, raise a little menagerie of animals, plant a garden, and put down roots as a family. It was a fun experience to recall and write about what we dreamed of, what we found, and our reality of living here almost six years later!

One of the things I really love about Little Farmstead Living is that we were able to capture images—both indoors and outdoors—in all four seasons. There’s a chapter on farmhouse-style decorating and where to find unique farmhouse wares for your home. We also include helpful tips—based on our trial-and-error approach—for gardening and caring for animals. A chapter about farmhouse gatherings includes steps to create an outdoor eating area and how to set up a festive fall tailgate party. And then, there’s a whole chapter dedicated to a farmhouse Christmas. It’s one of my favorites!

And that special quilt I mentioned? I spotted it at a vintage sale when we were trying to purchase our little farmstead. Our contingent offer was about to expire, and we had no serious buyers for our existing house. We were hanging onto a thread of hope that it would work out. I thought the quilt would be perfect for what I hoped would soon be our farmhouse and decided to buy it, in faith, that the sale would go through. A month after I bought the quilt, we received an offer! To this day, when I see that quilt, I’m reminded of that time, and thankful for how everything worked out.

    —Ann West on October 30, 2019
  • This would be a great gift for our youngest son and his wife. They are big city dwellers at the moment but want to have a small acreage with the farm-house style attached. They have worked through an engineering degree, certification and an MBA and now with their young family (3 children) want a place with room for their children to grow. She, especially, dreams of having fresh eggs and the chickens that go with them. "Little Farmstead Living" is just the ticket for them. Thank you for this opportunity!!

    —Colleen N. on October 30, 2019

    —Janice Mc Laren on October 30, 2019

    —Deirdre on October 30, 2019
  • I have lived in the country for 30 years now. 9 years ago we went from a 20 acre place to 5 acres in the Texas Hill Country. I love my 2 story rock house that is called Hill Country style. It has rustic beams that fit perfectly with my family antiques. My husband wants goats but after 20 years with goats, I am not willing to take them on my own, since he works away from home 2 weeks out of a month. With bobcats, hawks, coyotes and other wild creatures here, I can’t take the heartbreak of chickens again and losing them. I dream of turning the chicken house into a greenhouse. The garage is packed with a lot of my things that have not made it into the house yet. I think the corral is a lost cause. But my house is full of family antiques. I am the family historian and have a lot of things passed down from my father’s family, who were Texas farmers from Republic times. My kitchen is new, but with farmhouse touches. Each room has a family antique or two in it. My huge craft room holds my great grandmother’s treadle sewing machine, another great grandmother’s Hoosier cabinet, and husband’s grandmother’s buffet, and much more. In my living room is a huge trunk that I played inside of when I was a kid. I love my family antiques and living with them. I love finding new ways to display my old things, and finding select things in antique and junk stores.

    —Cyndye Batchelor on October 30, 2019
  • I live in the country AND love the look, but haven’t quite managed to add it to my home yet!

    —Pam N. on October 30, 2019
  • I’m definitely "dreaming for my someday smile." We’re hoping to build a new home in the next year or two, so I’m looking forward to starting all over and decorating from top to bottom. Decorating isn’t my best skill. The pictures from this book are delightful!

    —Brenda on October 30, 2019
  • We, my husband and I, live in a small community in the country. We have had our place on the market for the past 3 months with no takers. We took it off the market but have since decided to try again as we want to move closer to family. I have always loved the farmhouse appeal. I have faith that this is the direction that we should go so I am determined to find a new place to call home and fix it up with farmhouse decor and make our last place a homey home!! I would surely put your book to good use!!

    —Ruth Worthey on October 30, 2019
  • I love living in a rural area and your book has some great new ideas for decor and love "Farm life forever".

    —Regina Harris on October 30, 2019
  • Love the country look even though I live in town. Have some pieces but not sure how to bring it together.

    —Patrice DuBose on October 30, 2019
  • Dreaming here. Lots of dreaming. We need a makeover!!

    —Janice on October 30, 2019
  • I grew up in a rural farming community in Iowa where my mom still lives on a 115 year old family farm. Now we only visit, but live in a rural area where we have a garden and open spaces with woods behind us and deer freely grazing and eating my flowers. The rural life will be me forever. Presently our kitchen is gutted and renovations are underway toward a farmhouse style.

    —Linda Pickenpaugh on October 30, 2019

    —Carol Lawman on October 30, 2019

    —Kathy A on October 30, 2019

    —Jane on October 30, 2019
  • Fortunately, I do live in the country and my decorating is definitely a farmhouse style, even if my home isn’t! I love the warmth and comfort you feel when you enter a farmhouse.

    —Sandra S on October 30, 2019

    —Judy Thompson on October 30, 2019
  • Yes yes on both counts. I dread of a someday style.

    Jocelyn on October 30, 2019
  • Farm life forever describes me best; country living all the way, gardening, sewing, canning, animals. Love, love, love it. Thanks for asking.

    —Deborah Urich on October 30, 2019
  • I live in the country and I love it. I grew up in the city with all the noice and grim. Living in the county you hear the birds in the morning and the air is so fresh. My family and I are very lucky.
    Thank you Kate

    —Kate Murphy on October 30, 2019
  • Lovely book – mirrors what we did over twenty years ago, and life has just gotten better and better!

    —Gloria Fradsham on October 30, 2019
  • City girl born and bred, but I love a touch of country around me.

    —sue atkins on October 30, 2019
  • I moved 30+ years ago from a major, crime-ridden urban area to a very tiny town, 300 people in a very rural farming area. It was culture shock. But I could never live in a city again. For close to 30 years we lived on a hobby farm, had horses, chickens, ducks, geese, llamas, dozens of cats, and several dogs. It was not living like Martha Stewart. You dealt with mud constantly, animals that needed food and water, even if the snow was knee deep and the winter winds howling; frozen pipes, backed up septics…so it is not all fun and sweet pretty and romanticized. All that aside, I’d love to own the book!!

    —Geri on October 30, 2019
  • Hello. I have been a farm girl practically from the day I was born. Wouldn’t change that for anything. Your books looks absolutely beautiful. Wish you the very best living your dream

    —Robin on October 30, 2019
  • I could live in the country. It is so much easy living than the city living.

    —beth d. on October 30, 2019
  • I have lived in a small rural mountain town for many years. The farmhouse style Julie shows in her book would be a perfect way to breathe new life into our home!

    —Judy on October 30, 2019
  • I have always dreamed of living in the country and was blessed to be able to realise my dream 4 years ago when I retired at 54. We found a rural acreage that needed a little TLC and it has been a joy to bring it back to the glory it deserves, inside and out. Farmhouse style is cosy and welcoming, so it’s farmhouse all the way!

    —HelenT on October 30, 2019
  • I don’t live on a farm now but love the comfortable farm living style. This books looks like a great read.

    Gracie Adams on October 30, 2019
  • I have lived on a farm previously.

    I love the land, the streams, animals, the slower, peaceful life style, the strong values of the people.

    I currently do not live on a farm. I have still have access to country, can walk country lanes, smell the fall leaves, step on acorns, see deer and squirrels. I drive by country barns with the barn quilts displayed.

    —carol on October 30, 2019
  • Just relocated to a little farm, farther out from town than where we were living! Need some style ideas for the house, though…

    —Pamela Jones on October 30, 2019

    —Judalene on October 30, 2019

  • I have lived in a very small rural town my entire life. My dads family all lived here also and they farmed. We grew up in an old house built in 1906 and I lived there until I married. We built our own home on 2 acres in 1976. I have always like the homestead look and have added antique rustic furniture to my home and lots of quilts. I love the cozy feel of antiques and quilts.

    —Corinne on October 30, 2019
  • I spent my first eight years on a farm and have today some items of decor that remind me of the farm. One item I especially like is a ceramic rooster that stands a out twelve inches tall and sits on my credenza from time to time.

  • I like the idea of the "simpler, slower-pace" of farm living, but know if I could actually do the work it takes. I like the coziness farm style decor provides and the open, calm look of it. Quilts are great!

    —Sherri on October 30, 2019
  • Your book looks helpful for someone interested in making their home more farmhouse like. Even though I am not planning on changing my decor anytime soon I would love to read your story of your journey from ideas of moving through the stages of transforming the house into your dream farmhouse and maybe find a way to set a small venue in a corner that embodies that spirit.

Now I want to retire, but need an area with hospital, groceries etc. So maybe half an acre will do?? and DEFINITELY out of Denver urban sprawl! Thanks for the inspiration and the dreams.

    —Linda Christianson on November 1, 2019
  • 15 years ago we left the SoCal suburbs for rural Pacific Northwest farm-life, with goats, horses, chickens, and lots of chores. Although I am sometimes homesick, I wouldn’t trade our new life for our old one. Farm life forever forward, I think!

  • I was born in corn country. I relocated to a big city in Kansas. However, I still feel country. I love having a country vibe in my home. Having patchwork, scrappy quilts around….makes me feel even more cozy! If I can repurpose something…I rather it be old, than new! Rustic out beats modern every day for me!
