Bienvenue - Welcome!

A warm welcome to all who enjoy the French Country look and who seek to capture the spirit of this charming and casual style in their own home.

Simple yet elegant - unaffected by decor trends and fashion, this timeless home decorating style fits comfortably into any home without feeling antique.

Inspired by the colors and textures of the French countryside and based on the love and respect of traditions, natural materials and craftmanship, the heart of the style focuses on harmony, scale and balance and what feels right.

If you enjoy...

  • do-it-yourself-decor
  • stylish simplicity
  • up-cycling or repurposing
  • a touch of history
  • mixing and matching
...then I do believe you will love the spirit of this traditional home decorating style, which you will find so easy to achieve.

The style is relaxed and comfortable, giving the freedom to mix old and new, be creative and combine the unexpected with the norm.

"The magic of French Country style comes from the mix. You have to walk into a room and think, gosh, I never expected this."
