I love the French Country style. I love the warm hues of terracotta tile, the patina of a copper downspout, and the pop of a pink climbing rose against an aging stone wall.
There is something comforting about a linen chair that appears as though it has been sat in for the past 50 years or a stove with pots and pans gracefully mounted above, waiting in expectation to be used again. It is a style that speaks of memories made and memories yet to come. An invitation to take a deep breath and relax.
The simplicity of a soft white quilt against an iron bed frame reminds me of a time when bedrooms were a quiet place intended for rest and stillness. The large, wooden kitchen tables with thick turned legs are an inspiration to make my kitchen a place where people want to share, eat and fellowship.
Since we bought our first house in 2013, our dream became to have several acres of private property where we could build and create our very own French Country Home. A new house with the old world charm of days gone by.
We hope you will join us on this journey as we dream, design, and build our French Country Home.

This book is one of my favorites that I rotate through on my library coffee table.
