wow looking nice..its feel like a vintage design
Yes – hard to achieve with new construction! Thanks for reading. 🙂
French country is so romantic to me! Love everything about it. Thanks for the info on lavender. I’m really happy with ours, didn’t realize that it lasts year round but it’s still going strong and we’ve had a frigid winter so far!
I wish we had that climate in Chicagoland! So much to learn from the French approach to home. 🙂
Hi Michele! Definitely, I will fall in love with a blue and green collection! Aside from the fact that my favorite color is green and blue. I liked its cleanliness and arrangement. This kitchen is so organized and I wouldn’t even think of leaving them unclean!
I do appreciate the organization Desiree has carefully designed – you get the sense the kitchen will get even better with age! Thanks for reading. 🙂
Love this house! And especially love the idea of the unexpected airy woven dining chairs. I think I’m gonna be on the lookout for some of those! Even if they don’t all match perfectly😊Also enjoyed the video you shared with Erin Napier from Laurel, MS. I actually grew up in the small town right next door to Laurel…Hattiesburg, MS. I just discovered Erin within the last couple years. I keep planning to visit her mercantile store the next time I go home to visit family. I love her work and her ideas😊
That store is also on my list – that couple just exudes a goodness and warmth. Did you know they were contacted my HGTV and asked if they wanted to do a show just from someone seeing their wedding shoot in a magazine? Yep. Now that was amazing casting! Hope this finds you well, friend.
Wow! I did not know THAT’s how they were discovered…what a story! I bet it was Mississippi Magazine that their wedding pics were featured in…they have a wedding issue each year dedicated just to weddings of folks from MS. Thirty-two years ago (1988) when I got married, they had just started highlighting MS weddings, but it only consisted of a few pics in a small section of the magazine. Our photographer sent in some pics of weddings he had done, and they actually chose a pic from our wedding to feature.❤️ But we didn’t get a TV show from it… dangit! Ha! 😂
How cool is that? That is awesome! We were married in ’87 and were only legends in our own minds! xox
Hello! Wonderful article. 🙂 Do you have any idea what color her walls are? Her home is my inspiration for my renovation, but I can’t seem to find a wall color as creamy as hers. Please help!
Hi there. I’m pretty sure the walls are plaster and not painted. It’s hard to beat the glow of a gorgeous plaster wall!
Great Post. very informative, The idea you were discussed was fun and Keep sharing
Thanks so much for reading and taking time to visit here. 🙂
Hi there- Any info on the staircase newel post or any of the stair case parts??
You can direct any specific design questions to the homeowner/designer Desiree Ashworth on Instagram – she also has a shop called Beljar Home (@beljarhome on IG).
Do you know what the name and brand of the gray trim color and off white wall color ?
The trim is stained a custom grey/blue/green so we don’t have name to grab off the shelf. If you don’t have luck custom mixing your own stains, sometimes diluting a paint color with water (essentially making a glaze so the wood grain shows through) is an alternative. I have had success doing this with BM Revere Pewter. I believe the walls are plaster and not painted – warm white paint color ideas are here: https://www.hellolovelystudio.com/2020/05/7-gorgeous-warm-white-paint-colors-for-home-decor.html
Good morning! I really enjoyed your post this morning! I am getting ready to refresh our guest bedroom and I’ve been thinking of adding some blue/green I to the decor. This sealed the deal for me—although I will keep my beloved white as a base, I’m going to add in some blue/green. As always, thanks for the continued inspiration!
Yay! I love it when the timing is just right – thanks so much for tuning in, and happy weekend to you!
