An Authentic French Country Home Tour

Things have been a little bit crazy here since I’ve come back from my recent trip overseas! I know that I promised to share with you a couple of friend’s homes in France, so here we are. I have the most gorgeous home tour that I know you’ll want to see!

This home of my dear friend Tania is about an hour outside of Paris in the beautiful countryside of France. She is so talented in the art of design and an amazingly gifted artisan in everything that she touches! This several hundred year old home has her feminine touches throughout and yes…that painting is by Laurence Amelie, whose home I shared on a recent post.

French Antiques and Shabby Furnishings

Everything in her home either comes from a local brocante or has been lovingly sewn, painted or crafted by Tania.

She has a way of combining shabby chic with coastal with true authentic French style.

Softly muted tones of creams and grey with a bit of aqua and pale pink mixed in. I could stare at her exquisite vignettes for hours on end!

Just the perfect touches in this area where the old stone of the home glows under the skylight.  Hanging a bit of drippy millinery from the chandelier. It’s these small touches that make this home stand out!

She has a knack for bringing the outside garden elements inside which I love to do as well.
