Favorite Books - The French Inspired Home

Hello everyone.  I hope your weekend is going well.  I just can't believe it is the middle of September already.  I am still working on my fall decor and a few small projects around the house.  I am into organizing all of my closets right now.  So it is one room at a time.  The basement will be my largest one to take on so that one I will be leave for last.  It is all part of simplifying life.

Today I wanted to share this beautiful book by Carolyn Westbrook, The French Inspired Home. It is full of so many romantic and inspiring images.  Delicate fabrics, worn furniture, lighting, patina and vintage accessories are just a few of the elements that will keep you engaged and captivated with each turn of a page.  I knew I would fall in love with this book the minute I saw the cover.

Painted furniture, crystal chandeliers and pearls draping on a concrete angel are some of the little unique details that make this book a favorite...   It is is a mix of glamour, elegance and romance.  Yet easy and comfortable.  Just the way I love my home to feel.

Here are a few of the books pages for you to enjoy.  I hope you like the tour....

Wishing you a lovely Sunday.  

Thank you for visiting me today.  It makes me truly happy to read your lovely comments.
