French Country Inspired Interiors

As an admirer of timeless and tranquil design and a fan of all things related to home, I’m especially passionate about French country inspired interiors and European inspired design and projects which educate us about design, suggest creative possibilities, and introduce us to designers. My aim is to help you see the potential for peaceful and lovely interiors and supply the resources to get started.

Inside Our European Country Style Home With French Country Inspired Interiors

My handy husband and I live in a fixer upper with European Country interiors we’re transforming entirely ourselves DIY style with a sense of humor firmly in place! My better half  is a dynamo who can build or fix ANYTHING, and our two grown sons are still my world.

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

My happy places? Faith as well as family. I occasionally share personal reflections about health (I have BRCA+ genetic mutation and opted for a prophylactic mastectomy and hysterectomy to lower my cancer risk) as well as soulful reflections.

Sometimes the anti-cancer journey is manageable, and sometimes it’s a big ol’ mess….however, LOVE keeps making it all okay.

I am hopeless as a gardener so expanses of pea gravel are my friend. Organic gardening is certainly lovely indeed.

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!

We thought this kitchen would work just fine for the two of us emptynesters, but then our adult sons moved home mid-renovation! But there are certainly worst things than rubbing elbows with your favorites. Similar chairs HERE and Similar dining table HERE…certainly lovely indeed.

Significance of Ballet Slippers?

First, the photo below is a favorite snapped of a ballerina I styled. Second, I collect dead pointe shoes and danced as a sugar plum fairy in 6th grade…ballet was NEVER my strong point. Third, since I have hips and am not very flexible, the pointe shoes are rarely on these tootsies! Fourth, for me, pointe shoes represent feminine strength and a fierce work ethic–qualities I admire.
