If you’ve been a follower or subscriber of mine for any length of time, then I’m sure you know I’m a long time fan of designer Brooke Giannetti. I’ve featured her designs in the pages of Maison de Cinq many times, and I was an early reader of her popular blog, Velvet & Linen. During the time, I followed the building of her dream home, Patina Farm, lapping up each post detailing the process. Hers was one of the first blogs I ever followed, and to say she’s been an inspiration is an understatement. She is probably the single biggest influence on my style, and definitely hands down my favorite designer.
Here I am, writing well into the night. Why? Because today I received one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever seen in my life, and I couldn’t stop looking at it. I’ve literally been reading it, salivating over it, and looking at it again for the last couple of hours.
I have something special to share with you today, and for all of you fellow Francophiles, I think this will be a fun post for you! As you know, I love French Country/French Vintage style more than anything! Well, a good blogging friend of mine named Jamie, who writes the blog So Much Better with Age, has a very similar aesthetic. Jamie lives in Canada and shares her amazing style on her blog. I found her a few years ago and fell in love with her home and her taste! Then I got a chance to meet her a couple of years ago at the Haven blogging conference, and lucky for me, she was as sweet as she is talented. Cut to now and she is releasing a French decor book! A book, people! This is a blogger’s dream (or, at least this blogger’s dream!)
