Welcome to the ALL NEW French Country Fridays, the series that will inspire you to “Frenchify” your Friday!
Boy oh boy did this week go by quickly and it seems like for me it was mostly filled with catching up on blog related work! I’ve mentioned it before that Friday is generally my favorite day. I work from my home office and my husband is out and about for his job but home on weekends. I so look forward to spending time with him, even after all of these years! We have a particularly yummy French Country Fridays for you today and my favorite is the museum listed below. Hope to visit this one on my next visit to San Francisco to see our daughter! Let’s get started with the post…

Get lost in the Salon Doré at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco.
Designed during the reign of Louis XVI, the room was originally installed in the Hôtel de la Trémoille on Paris as a salon de compagnie (the principal reception room). Throughout its history, the paneling of the Salon Doré has been moved no less than six times! It has called the Legion of Honor “home” since 1959.
The most romantic chateau in France is revealed in a gorgeous new book out this month, published by Rizzoli. The history-filled circa 1720 Château de Haroué in eastern France, is the style-rich family home of the noble Beauvau-Craon family, who continue to live there. Read a complete review and then get this one for the beautiful interiors and the story behind the chateau.
Le Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen is the largest antique market in the world. Les Puces is made up of over 2,500 little shops spread across fifteen unique mini markets and absolutely filled to the brim with rare treasures. The reality is you could spend a lifetime sifting through the 17 acres of flea market madness. Head on over to Hip Paris for a short guide on top three markets to visit and where you to grab a bite to eat in the environs.
