French country details populate painted shelves. You’ll find many of these elements in American homes today. A cloche with natural elements, books facing backwards, a small plaster bust, colored glass bottles, and a vintage scale.

A view into the dining room reveals Old World architecture found throughout the French country cottage. White painted furniture and a worn rug soften a tile floor while a small chandelier adds a bit of bling.

Farm doors with blue and white gingham fabric at the windows line one wall of the laundry room. Wouldn’t it be fabulous to have this much storage space in the laundry room?

Duvets in blue and white ticking cover twin beds in a girl’s bedroom. Vaulted ceilings throughout the home create a feeling of spaciousness.
