One word with Sharon from My French Country Home

Told you I would be changing up my banner often, I am in a hydrangea frame of mind lately…..they are like summers poster child!


Also for those of you who asked, the new blue and white ginger jars and oversized bowl are now up on my shop site.?

Good morning! Well I am down to the last two guests posts for my “One word” series,?before I start brainstorming about another series highlighting some of my favorite bloggers. ? Its been such a pleasure featuring so many incredibly talented women, and today’s guest is no exception. Sharon from My French Country Home is, as many of you know a source of amazing French inspiration, who lives in the most idyllic countryside of France. Visiting her on her blog truly is my guilty pleasure every morning where I get to see beautiful France through her eyes, whether?its her horses meandering right outside her front door, or her trips to the local brocante fairs or even simple things like taking a long leisurely walk accompanied by the family pooches through the picturesque fall foliage.

?If you want to get taken away and I do not say taken away lightly, ?to the beautiful countryside of France, make no mistake…….it doesn’t get better than visiting?My French Country Home.
So I was thrilled when Sharon agreed to be my guest today and as I started reading over her post, I got lost in a beautiful, dreamy world of a time gone by,a picturesque place where time really does stand still and where things move a little slower allowing one to savor all of life’s simple pleasures. Reading over this was, believe me, ?absolute bliss so today I am just ?thrilled to?share the goodness with you, my dear readers and followers. ?Enjoy and thank you Sharon!

I just have to show you few images from Sharon’s blog and yes these are all her images taken from her so called “every day life”. Guess “every day life” is a relative term, snapshots of mine would include a crazy long Starbucks line of caffeine craving overworked mortals, me sitting in a carpool line, me yelling at some telemarketer for bothering me when I am trying to multitask, waking up running around screaming for everyone to get up when we are running late, sitting in a traffic jam somewhere, etc…….now here is a glimpse into every day life over at My French Country home. NOW, ?do you see what the fuss is all about? Ahhhh, feel my blood pressure lowering already!


On top of this Sharon has so graciously decided to do a giveaway! And let me tell you its a wonderful one! As if her blog is not gift enough…….

Now wipe the drool from your chin, and take a look at what Sharon has to say:)

Fabulously French!

Good morning!! If you have been following my blog for any reasonable amount of time, you know I am totally enamored with?all things French. Particularly French decor, French architecture, French colors, French history. And then there is of course the gastronomic world of French food. Oh and the gorgeous language of France. And how could I leave out French fashion!! You get my point, every thing about France is just heavenly at least in my humble opinion and there are TOO MANY to list them all! ?French decor is a huge inspiration to me and will continue to be as we finally move into the stages of planning out the decor for our new French inspired home.

I appreciate all aspects of French design from the most rustic, farm/country look that is so popular today all the way to the most formal and opulent castle worthy decadence (though not for me personally). Much to their credit, the French have great design nailed!

?I have a huge collection of photos, way too many to put into one post but today is my ode to all the fabulousness that is French. Whether its a French chair, or a certain color palette, gorgeous paneling in a French style, whatever it might be that struck me, here is some of the inspiration I have gotten from beautiful French decor. What are your thoughts? Are you a fellow Francophile or do you like just bits and pieces? Is there any French influence in your home? Love to know!

You know I love this space, just look at my header! Kitchen bath ideas
Always love this French feeling kitchen, Traditional Home
GORGEOUS entry hall……John Bobbit

Sumptuous master bedroom, Barry Dixon
Gorgeous pair of French beds grace this beautiful bedroom, Marshall Watson
Love the idea of a french settee being used as part of the seating at this dining table

Fabulous sumptuous suite bathed in neutral splendor, Barry Dixon
And just a little recap. Many thanks for bearing wtih me as I feel out my OCD tendencies and get my “jollys” doing these little mosaics. The day will come when I will tire of them and move onto some other little project but until then……..
So what are your thoughts on French decor? Is it a like or a love? Do you have any French influences in your own home or a particular look or element you love? Would love to know. Hope you have a great day…Au?revior!

Divine inspiration…part I

Happy Tuesday to you! Don’t forget to read about my exciting giveaway at the bottom of this post! Some ask where I get my inspiration…I guess its born out of my innate desire to discover and learn more about beautiful things. I have to?say in building a new house, though the process can be overwhelming, its obviously incredibly exciting at the same time to be able to create something from the ground up. I have through blogging and spending A LOT of time on my computer (normally late nights up when I can’s sleep or in the wee hours of the?morning, am an early waker) learned so much. I am convinced that the best design school could not have instilled in me this vault of knowledge, that I have gained. I can choose paint colors with a newly found fierce confidence, spot the difference between a Louis VXI and a Louis XV settee, expertly pick a Persian rug from a Turkish one, know most wallpaper manufacturers on a first name basis, and in the process feel like I have been able to define the style that I see for my house in a much clearer sense.



Where would I be without the Internet and my fellow bloggers who inspire me on a daily if not at times hourly basis? I don’t even want to imagine!! The Internet is such an incredible truly life transforming vehicle by which we can learn about ANYTHING. For the purpose of design and decor, it has been priceless for me. So as you can imagine and as many of you have noted, I have a tremendous photo library which I keep online. I get such a thrill looking and relooking at these pictures to help shape my ideas and decisions as they are being made. So today I pay tribute to some of the beautiful images and inspirations that have captivated me and help me make decisions going forward. Because I have so many, way too many for one post, I am doing this in series of sorts, so here is part I. I know we all have our own distinct style but below is what “makes me tick” ……my personal divine inspiration!



Love this bath, the colors the “extras” that make it exquisite, Veranda
Fabulous rich gold antiqued chinoiserie, so timeless
Love the limed oak/light wood paneling in this room, Arch Digest
Four of my favorite Farrow and Ball colors…love this color scheme

Love the wood tones, the gorgeous floors, the stone fireplace..Rustic elegant French
The antique chest and chairs are exquisite,House Beautiful
LOVE this hallway!! Susan Ferrier
House Beautiful, love the antiqued mirror panels with the rosettes…
French at its finest! (dont’ remember source)
Tracery I believe..(have had this awhile)
Love an elegant Empire antique French chandelier, 1st Dibs
Gorgeous kitchen with rich blue and white accents

Love the look of antique hardware, Hardware Hut

So elegant, photo by Andreas Trauttmansdorf
So rich and elegant, Susan Ferrier

One of my all time faves, Country French
My kitchen floor from Paris Ceramics

Something about this space, simple but so grand and old world
A fabulous French burled walnut regency chest, Marjolet
Love the scale of this fabulous room….
How gorgeous all the rich warm earthy tones are here….
You know this was coming……another inspiration board! I couldn’t resist so hope you enjoyed….what do you think? Any opinions or ideas you care to share? How has the Internet influenced your decision making and has it broadened your understanding and interpretation of design as much as it has for me? I am still amazed by all it can do! Wishing you a wonderful day!
