Even though Nichole of Corner French Cottage is just gearing up for this year’s Christmas decorating, the talented designer of French country interiors invited us to merrily tour her charming white home’s Christmas past. Beautiful French Country Christmas Decorating Inspiration awaits!
French Country Christmas Decorating Inspiration
If you love white on white decor, shabby chic simplicity, and French country goodness, I do believe these cozy moments of vintage and holiday happiness will tug at your heartstrings. In fact, this Illinois home’s tour has inspired me with all sorts of gorgeous ideas for holiday decor since the vignettes stay airy and fresh (as opposed to getting stuck in granny-land if you know what I mean). I wonder if being a young mom of a toddler gives Nichole a decorating advantage?
Let’s get to know Corner French Cottage!
What do you love about French country design?
“What I love the most about French country style is that it is timeless and inviting. It’s elegant, yet realistic. I love being able to hang a crystal chandelier over a vintage table that shows signs of age with its chipping layers of paint, topped with an old zinc bucket filled with beautiful blooms.”
A Love for French Inspired Beauty
What catches your eye at the flea market?
“I am always on the hunt for gilded mirrors or anything Florentine. Also, crystal chandeliers. I believe every room deserves one.”

Nesting Table Love
Tell us about your approach to decorating for Christmas.
“At Christmas time our living room is my favorite space in the house. We put up our main flocked tree, accompanied by a few other small ones throughout the room. Christmas scented candles fill the air. You will also hear classic Christmas music sung by, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Nat King Cole playing in the background. Curling up on our sofa under a chunky knit blanket, staring at the twinkling lights of the tree is where I spend most of my time in the winter months.”
