When I stumbled on photos of interior designer Brit Jones’ own French home in Texas, I may have gone into one those design freaky trances where you don’t come up for air for an hour. You know exactly what I mean. Those homes with a palette that speaks to you and that radiate undeniable grace. I’m a timeless and tranquil sort of peaceful home guru, so what a blessing the designer was on board to share her work and lovely newly built home with us! Timeless Country French House Tour to Inspire is more than just another collection of romantic French farmhouse photos. It has truly inspired me to begin designing something new, and maybe it will inspire your next building project or room makeover.

Timeless Country French House Tour
Seeing the rustic board and batten shutters brought a rush of emotion for me as I remembered our former French country manor house. My husband built our shutters, and they started out a blue like this before I painted them light grey years later. Oh the memories!

About That Showstopping French Sliding Barn Door…
The designer arrived at the perfect muted shade of French blue-green by custom mixing Annie Sloan chalk paints in the colors of: Duck Egg Blue, Old White, French Linen, and Coco. Do bear in mind Annie Sloan has changed the color formulations of several paint colors in the collection.
It’s always worth taking the time to find the perfect hue! Here is an example of a combination of 1 part Duck Egg Blue with 3 parts Old White:
Again, keep in mind that Annie Sloan recently updatedcolors! If you have not stopped in to your local brick and mortar stockist of Annie Sloan, do mosey on over. When I spent time interviewing a stockist this week at the shop near me, I learned about Annie Sloan Svenska Blue…oooooh, it’s a pretty new color you may love!
Imagine the possibilities mixing Svenska Blue with Annie Sloan’s whites!

Where to Find Reclaimed Chicago Brick
I learned about reclaimed Chicago brick (which is sliced so it can be used for tiling walls and floors) a couple of years ago because I thought it would be perfect on a wall in our fixer’s kitchen. Here’s the company I planned to use: Vintage Brick Salvage. Tell them I sent you!
