This is a project I’ve dreamed of for years.

This is a project I’ve been working on for months.

This is a project I’ve planned and put together and kept under wraps and poured every little bit of my heart into.

Today I’m partnering with Clayton® to showcase one of their beautiful model homes, the Amelia.

The concept behind the project was to decorate the Amelia at my local home center, Clayton Homes of Fort Worth from the floor up with beautiful farmhouse finds and rugs and accessories and Christmas trees and lamps and baskets and throws and pillows and vintage windows and get it ready for the holidays.

Are you ready?

Are you set?

Are you sitting down?

(total aside:  you might need coffee for this one).

Here’s my new farmhouse friend.

The Amelia.

Here’s the view from the front door.

Isn’t it beautiful?

Clayton was founded in 1956 and has spent decades making beautiful homes ever since.  They offer traditional site-built homes and prefabricated housing including modular homes, manufactured homes, tiny homes, military barracks and apartments.

I love their front door interior views.

And I love their mission.

They are committed to opening beautiful front doors like this to a better life through homeownership.

Here’s a quick video about the home buying process.

There are two living rooms in the Amelia model.

For the front room, I chose blues and reds and plaids.

Do you recognize that rug?

It’s the one you helped me pick for my living room.

I love how it picks up the color of the front door and adds character and personality to the space.

This home comes with so many amenities.

There’s an open floor plan with plenty of natural light.

The kitchen and two living rooms work together to create a great room with a large kitchen for entertaining with a farmhouse sink, pendant lighting and farmhouse kitchen island.

The trim has woodgrain accents and there’s wide plank flooring and shiplap walls.

I also love the rustic wood ceiling beams in the second living space.

Want to see which farmhouse model might fit your style?
Here’s a fun quiz to help you figure it out.

As you continue into the home, you walk through the dining room area and the kitchen into the second living area.

Here, I went with farmhouse neutrals.

There’s a flocked tree in the corner with a metal and wood farmhouse table and bar stools.

There’s a long wall leading down to the back of the house with three of the four bedrooms and a second bathroom.

It’s full of farmhouse charm.

Like these windows with wreaths and ribbon.

And these handmade trees my brother made for the house.

And vintage windows hung from jute rope.

At the end of the hallway is the cutest mudroom ever.

There are built-ins and a bench and a farmhouse laundry room with a window and a door to bring in lots of natural light.

Even with details and built-ins like this, the home is so affordable.

Clayton is able to keep its homes reasonably priced because they purchase building materials and name brand appliances in bulk.  They are also extremely efficient at building homes inside facilities with their production line assembly and the fact that they recycle extra materials.

The kitchen is open and spacious and comes with this adorable pantry.

Look at that farmhouse screen door.

I added a cup rack and white dishes and plaid dishtowels and baskets.

It’s ready for holiday entertaining.

At the other end of the home is the master bedroom and bath.

This home comes with a stand-alone soaker tub and beautiful cabinetry.

The wood paneling and accents are incredible farmhouse accents for this space.

I love this home.


There are so many wonderful elements in the space that work together seamlessly.

I love its affordability.

I love the farmhouse detailing.

I love the pantry and the laundry room and the kitchen and the living room and the trees and the flooring and the cabinetry.

But most of all?

I love that it feels like home.

    Would you please share the source for the little metal rolling cart used as a coffee table? It looks not only cute but also functional and usable in small spaces. A nice post. Clever ideas by the manufacturer and, of course, as always by talented and delightful YOU, YOU, YOU!

    Everything I want to say, the other ladies have already said it!! You did an amazing job! I had to forward it to my daughter, to give her some ideas for her new home. She wants it all!!! Can you tell me if the stain on the trim is something we could buy? Thank you for being such an inspiration!

    Your touches always make a house a home. I am thrilled to see the farmhouse touches Clayton has used. I am looking for an affordable home to put on family land. I love this interior but want the outside of the home to also reflex a farmhouse I will let you know how my journey goes

    I first discovered Clayton Homes outside of Lakeland, Florida and that was in 2008 before the popular farmhouse look. They are wonderfully designed and have all the amenities that one could want in a home. You did an incredible job of decorating this one in the farmhouse look. Thanks for sharing with all of us - its a cozy home.

    I LOVE the work you did on the Clayton Farmhouse, it is beautiful, welcoming and homey! I live in a Clayton home and am in the process of farm housing it. Your next book should be about modular homes, hint hint! I love your work your blog and all the encouragement and help you give me daily. Keep up the good work you are doing!

    I had to keep going back and checking out the homes and the prices because I thought there must be a mistake! The homes look so beautiful! I love this model and what you did to bring it beautifully to life! It's decorated so perfectly that it showcases the lovely interior! I love the rug so much and I do remember helping you choose it and now I can't remember what it was but it's perfect!the Christmas tree house to be one of the prettiest trees I've ever seen and it looks perfect in that corner! What a beautiful home and I kept looking to see where this was and it's in Fort Worth! One of my best friend's lives in Fort Worth, I started thinking that if we ever move to Texas I would definitely want to go see these wonderful models! Congratulations on such a beautiful job! Also, I want to say that when I see your photos they make me happy! You always capture everything so beautifully!
