…and it’s pretty evident that this look carries into our sweet spot at the beach. Mixing in what you love is easy and up here I have those French influences right beside seashells, farmhouse and rustic chippy vintage. Somehow it all blends seamlessly, and color is key.
Old French carved cabinet…OLD and the original patina.
Antique French chair and ottoman that I purchased at a yard sale and had recovered in a cream damask. This set was beat up and mildewed from being stored in a garage, and now are lovingly adored in a reading corner.
Mid century nightstands…and these were very commonplace. You may have seen these around in your own town perhaps at a thrift store. I swear that they produced them in the thousands!
I painted the pair for use as master bedroom side tables at the beach with ordinary house paint and accents of my signature color aqua blue.
I found this full length French antique dressing mirror just as it is…with the French blue color wood accented by gold gilding. It came with a matching bench which I sold and so basically the mirror was then free!
French enamelware on old aqua paint? To me it just goes so well and juxtaposes texture, color and style.
