French Country Style


So many of you have seen my ad in French Country Style Magazine,
a beautiful new lifestyle & decor publication from fabulous FiFi O'Neill...

I am happy to welcome you to my blog and share my French country style offerings with you!

The phrase 'French Revolution' has more than one meaning... 
With the recent popularity of the Oscar-winning film 'Les Miserables',
interest in French history, style, and culture is at an all-time high.
Both fashion and home decor trends reflect the influence of Parisian style.

While we may not be able to swing a trip to the City of Lights,
it is certainly possible to bring touches of Paris and the rural French countryside to our homes!

The color combination of black and white in the vignette above is a neutral scheme  
that works anywhere to reflect a lighter approach to decorating with French style.
It also serves as a perfect foil for the red, white and blue TriColor flag of France.

This classic look brings to mind a pied a'terre tucked away on a back street of Paris,
overlooking a patisserie and le tour Eiffel in the hazy distance...
This is a fresh interpretation of Classic French Style.

The bucolic charm of the French Countryside is captured in the vignette below,
combining warm wood tones with natural subjects in the art and accessories.
From the painting to the needlepoint pillow,
the flora and fauna of rural France is depicted with timeless charm.

The combination creates the illusion of being ensconced on a Provencal farm, 
surrounded by fields of aromatic lavender whilst sipping le grande cru wines.
This is classic, elegant French Country Style.


Combining two-dimensional art (such as my platter with a rabbit print)
with three-dimensional art (the two vintage bunny figurines)
brings interest and detail to home decor vignettes.

My beautiful products will fill your rooms with le style Francaise,
whether your own choices reflect French Classic or Country moods!
