The marble is darkened and stained in spots, and I love that!  The white chippy paint on the deliciously curvy legs is all authentic and wonderful.  It’s a heavy beast to move, but it will be with me until my dying day.



A piece of my heart will always be for linens, especially old linens, pure linen, grain sack linens, frayed linens . . . all fabrics that bring in a bit of French charm.



The French love to use mixed metals in their decor, and the older the better. Many of the authentic furniture pieces are laced with gold and other metals in the intricate details.



Sometimes I feel true French design is the exact opposite of modern design. The older the better in this case, and coming across an antique with French charm is a treasure.



As proven in the pages of French Country Cottage, flowers are key to that romantic French style. Flowers can appear in delicate florals in fabrics or you can make your own arrangements in treasured buckets or vases.
