DIY, European Country Style & Modern French Country Inspired Interiors

My handy husband and I transformed a neglected fixer upper to a modern European Country beauty entirely ourselves (with a sense of humor firmly in place!) My better half  is a dynamo who can build or fix ANYTHING, and we’re at it again this time in a Georgian style home.

Peaceful Lifestyle, White Interiors & European Inspired Everything Are Favorites!

I also share personal reflections about faith and chronic illness (autoimmune, Crohn’s, and BRCA+ genetic mutation). As a previvor, I opted for a prophylactic mastectomy and hysterectomy to lower my cancer risk.

Our living room has a very simple, serene, spare, rustic yet elegant European country feel. More frugality evidence here, which is consistent with French Country inspired interiors! Little side table with the lamp? Picked it up at a garage sale for a buck…certainly a score indeed!

French Farmhouse Decor Inspiration is Ever Flowing

My fondness for European-inspired white interiors and timeless and tranquil beautiful home decor as well as European country and French farmhouse everything is hard to miss. In my spare time, find me painting an abstract seascape, baking deliciousness (mostly G-free), or composing at the piano.

Some folks didn’t believe me when I wrote about our statement wall DIY; however, it’s all true. We planked this statement wall in 3 hours, and it was by far the easiest DIY in the whole house. Read more about our master bedroom with STIKWOOD Hamptons.

Significance of Ballet Slippers?

In case you wondered, the photo below is a favorite snapped of a ballerina I styled. While I collect dead pointe shoes and danced as a sugar plum fairy in 6th grade, ballet was NEVER my strong point. However, pointe shoes remind me of strength and a fierce work ethic–qualities I admire.
