~farmhouse love...in france...~

Happy Wednesday everyone!!


 I came across this incredible inspiration
and could NOT wait to show you all!


this home is such a dream....

I'm so glad I found it ~ it was just the
inspiration I needed today :)

can I just say, I love that door.....the doorknob
the little thingy hanging from it...? (don't have
the foggiest what the proper name for that would
be...???;) )

and the sheer simplicity of the room....ahhhhh...


let's start on the outside & count the ways we love thee....


 darling little "french" doors greet you
wood beams throughout the home...

I really love the teensy bit of sage green
here & there on the wood trim


now here's some all wood steps....
what do you think?  I'm kinda likin it....
since it's up against the pale walls & light green
trim....it works, no?


can you even imagine finding a house
around here with those amazing wood beams?
the terracotta floors look nice...
wouldn't you say?
I like the bit of color mixed in too....oh did
I say that in my outside voice?
shhhh...I'm just sayin'.....


more natural wood here as well...
here's the other side of the room...
the coffee table is so gorgeous up close....


moving into the kitchen....
so very french with the white & blue

the cabinet doors...
the gooseneck faucet....
the tiles....
the aqua blue conservatory....
the beams!!
sheesh....love it all....



this kind of home makes my heart beat just
a wee bit faster....
seriously..
I'm so glad I'm with similar company..;)

here's another peek at the bedroom and
looks like some more stairs heading up to
an attic....
hey...they moved the thingy ma bobber
on the doorknob!
"thingy ma bobber ~ my daughter's fav word"


it must be a fairly spacious master suite...
here's the other side of the room

OK....this picture is what makes my heart race....
LOOK at those adorable chairs...
and the darling little shades on the windows


have you ever noticed in a lot of the french homes
and european homes in general, they don't frame in
the windows?  with decorative trim ya' know?
or half the time don't use baseboard molding??


moving along....the office ~
um..love it.

just love it ....
the pale colors, the ticking fabric on the loveseat...
and the little pop of natural wood mixed in...

what beautiful radiators throughout the home...
and 
 look at the tile baseboards....I'm liking that
a lot!


well there you go.....some big-time
french inspiration to start your day....

hope it's a great one!!


off to my sewing machine &
a new movie to watch....

Phantom of the Opera...
on dvd....

xoxo,



Shellagh

all the rooms are very tastefully done, however, the things i like most were the organization and cleanliness, the bedside table was a cute one with a little drawer for personal items and lots of space down there for keeping other things, the kitchen is also very beautifully done and i liked the side bar a lot, very impressive looking chest it was

Burlap Luxe said...

Ok Shellagh girl,
these pictures are choking the life out of me, with my own hands around my own throat gasping for air with a passion to move right in. Would you not want to live in one or all the rooms.

Thank you for the inspiration in the photo's posted. I think I have been inspired to recreate a little from it.
The chair has a pillow in it that I sewed from an Italian mattlesse coverlet, on the real cheap. I made two of them extra from fabric from an old coverlet and it is zipped in with a feather pillow for that relaxed feel and look when it is messed up!

see you soon girl!

Thanks for the look.

nice home!

Kathy said...

Houses in France really looked so romantic and classy because France is such a romantic country. What I like most here in your farmhouse is the vintage design in every parts of your home from stairs to the sofa, everything. I'm a fan of vintage and shabby chic thing that's why my home is kinda vintage too from the bed, the sofa to the tile(s) (Clearwater). But the tile flooring (Tampa) of my entire home has the most vintage look because those are mosaic tiles. And I love it so much!
