Feeling Frenchie: Bedroom Edition


Well, here we are on the tail end of our French influential series in which I’m pulling inspiration photos of rooms that have that rich taste of European elegance. Today, we are focusing on one of my favorite spaces to decorate: The Master Bedroom!

This is, in my opinion, one of the most important rooms in the house and yet it is often the most neglected. It’s a place that should be designed to be enveloping and a complete sensory treat, be it soft and soothing or warm and inviting. No matter what, it should invite you to rest, recharge and inspire thoughts of romance and quiet relaxation. (click here to see more beautiful images...)

Feeling Frenchie: Dining Room and Office Edition


Happy Monday to you! We’re continuing on with our search for French inspired design and today we’re focusing on the dining room and the office area. Just a reminder, these are not entirely French but I picked them because they have that old world European flavor that we are trying to incorporate into the design scheme of the house we are working on. So without further adieu, Bon Appetit!

Feeling Frenchie- the Kitchen And Bath Edition


Do you Parlez-vouz? After digging out all this French provincial influenced design, I believe I do!

I picked these specifically because of their black and white details. If we end up doing black countertops, I think these are a perfect example of how chic and yet provincial they can look:

Feeling Frenchie – Living Room Edition


I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to be working with a really lovely new client who is in the beginning stages of building a new home.

After having met with her builder to discuss her options and some structural changes, we are soon going to be picking finishes and putting together a design concept (ooh, the fun stuff!).

She loves the look of French Provincial and has lots and lots of lovely antiques that we will be incorporating into the plan so I thought I woud pull some inspiration photos we could draw from. Some of these aren’t completely French. There’s a lot of Swedish influence to many as well as some Georgian and country and some have a mix of contemporary mixed in but I love the feel and wanted to include them so we could discect what works for our plan and what doesn’t.

For today, so that we don’t get completely overwhelmed – (click here to see these gorgeous rooms)
