Mid-week Design Inspiration: French Country Living


I picked up a new design book that I love,love, love and would like to share a few photos with you. Caroline Clifton-Mogg wrote French Country Living and the photography was done by Christopher Drake. There is something magical about French country style. The subtle colors and rustic quality of the furniture, flooring, and walls make French country decorating so authentic and inviting. It makes me feel as though I have been transported back to a simpler time. French Country Living is one of those special books where every picture is amazing. I hope you enjoy this small sampling from the book...


Let's start in the bathroom, shall we? Isn't it dreamy? I love the recycled sideboard turned bathroom vanity and the long flowing curtains. I want that to be my bathroom and I have not even seen the tub.




The two-toned gray walls coupled with the swag appliques are so charming and so French. Tres chic!




The stone wall and open-beamed ceiling are the perfect backdrop for this beautiful, antique gray bookshelf.




Don't you just want to cuddle up on this chaise lounge with a good book?




A lovely armoire, with chicken wire in place of glass, in the palest shade of greenish-blue.




This dining room is so warm with the pale green hutch and the farm table.





I hope you enjoyed a few of the photos from French Country Living. There are many more beautiful photographs in the book.
