Hello there friends and welcome to our French-ish day of inspiration, French Country Fridays! It’s been a bit crazy this week with me frantically working on my master bedroom makeover. For those of you who haven’t stopped by lately, I’m doing the One Room Challenge and I’m making over my master bedroom (on a deadline!). You can catch up on where we are at this point here.
Hi everyone! I’m back with a One Room Challenge update! This is Week 4 of the challenge and though I’ve made a lot of progress, I’m actually getting a little nervous about getting it all done in time. My main concern is that I haven’t chosen a paint color, and even worse, I haven’t even hired a painter! Eek!
You all know I love French farmhouse style, and one of the most frequent questions I get both through the blog and on Instagram is about where I find my French furniture pieces and accessories. And of course, you know how much I love to find those authentic vintage French pieces. I spend a lot of time doing vintage shopping, both online and at antique stores and flea markets.
Hello friends and welcome to French Country Fridays! Hope you’re all finally enjoying some spring weather wherever you are! I feel like our spring finally arrived!! We’ve had some cool days (typical for spring) but the warm weather is definitely peeking it’s head out!
Well, here it is, week 3 of the ORC already! How did that happen?! Boy if you ever want to speed up time, just join the One Room Challenge, haha!
This week has consisted of a lot of things, including ordering a ton of stuff! But although I have a pile of boxes in the corner of my master bedroom (the UPS guy is definitely on a first name basis now!), a lot is still on back order or yet to arrive! Eek! Some of my delivery dates are so close – let’s just cross our fingers that they arrive in time!
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.
