An Exquisite French Country Home Tour

Things have been a little bit crazy here since I've come back from my recent trip overseas, but I know that I promised to share with you guys a couple of friend's homes in France, so today I have the most gorgeous home tour that I know you'll want to see!


french farmhouse

This home of my friend Tania is about an hour outside of Paris in the beautiful countryside of France. She is so talented in the art of design and an amazingly gifted artisan in everything that she touches! This several hundred year old home has her feminine touches throughout and yes...that painting is by Laurence Amelie, whose home I shared on a recent post.

Everything in her home either comes from a local brocante or has been lovingly sewn, painted or crafted by Tania.

antique french furniture

She has a way of combining shabby chic with coastal with true authentic French style.

french country home decor

The colors are softly muted in creams and grey with a bit of aqua and pale pink mixed in. I could stare at her exquisite vignettes for hours on end!

old french country farmhouse

Carefully curated collections, purchased over time and authentic old pieces, no reproductions here.

french country cottage

Just the perfect touches in this area where the old stone of the home glows under the skylight. I may have to "borrow" her idea of hanging a bit of drippy millinery from the chandelier.

She has a knack for bringing the outside garden elements inside which I love to do as well and have talked about HERE.

I'm in love with the old window used to display little bits and tiny treasures.

And the French grey paint with some pink peeking through.

Her studio reflects her personality.

Where can I find sofa slip covers like yours? Everything I find out there is very "non-elegant' and from places like surefit which really don't look too good.

Wow, how much fun you had! What a treat to have a friend who just has 'the knack' and lets you in to document it all. Are we going to get to see the garden?
