French Decor. French Furniture. French Accents.
I love to look at homes that are decorated with French antiques and I hope to someday own some authentic French stuff. It’s one of my dreams to travel to France and shop at the brocante myself, bringing back some fun finds. Somehow it seems the items would mean so much more if I went and found them myself and carried them home in my suitcase instead of buying them from businesses that have imported them. Although I probably wouldn’t be able to get some of the things I want in a suitcase!
I’d also love to be the importer of French antiques and sell them at my own shop. Maybe someday 🙂
As much as I think it would be fun to own some real French stuff, it is possible to create a French styled home without traveling to France OR breaking the bank!
Anita from Cedar Hill Farmhouse has the most gorgeous home and her style is lovely, farmhouse French. Just look at that lovely table setting! I’d love to sit down to dinner at that table!
And just look at this delightful bedroom! I love this so much!
Anita has written a book, French Accents, and I had the privilege of being among the group of bloggers who received a free digital copy of the book to review and share my opinion with all of you. And I have to say I recommend this book even if you don’t think your style is French.
Anita’s book is well-written, fun to read, and will totally redefine your opinion of what is ‘French’ for decor.
From a story about how she once thought a collection of chicken decor would bring ‘French’ style to her home, to encouraging you to embrace your own style, Anita writes a book that will make you smile and will definitely make you see your home and decor in a whole new light. It will give you ideas, encouragement, and confidence to create a space you love and that feels like home.
You can purchase your own copy of French Accents (affiliate link) and enjoy the wonderful photography along with the tips and advice Anita has to share. You won’t be disappointed!
I’ve been doing some updates and redecorating this week, adding some fall touches to our home. Plaid and pumpkins are in the mix and as I look around I see a bit of French style here and there!
How about you? Are you decorating for fall? Do you use pumpkins for fall decor or have you jumped on the plaid bandwagon? How about French style? Do you incorporate it into your home?
