The Romantic Home - book giveaway


One of my favorite homes featured in the book is a 1912 cottage located on a former dairy farm in coastal California. Everything in the living room, except the sofa, was found at flea markets. A soothing mix of greens and blues create a soothing vibe – perfect for a home just two miles from the Pacific Ocean.

In the dining room, a European antique chandelier presides over a farmhouse table, custom made to fit the space. The white sideboard was refinished with white chalk paint.

French doors lead from the living and dining areas into a light-filled family room featuring another vintage chandelier. Not surprisingly, the armchair was a flea market find and was covered in a linen grain sack that the owner found while on a trip to Paris.

What I love about The Romantic Home is the variety of houses featured. Fifi found a great assortment, from a high-rise condo to a countryside charmer. This next home is a circa 1881 Queen Anne Victorian located in Newport, Rhode Island. Surprisingly, the interiors are refreshingly modern yet romantic at the same time.

The Victorians loved using flowers and plants in their homes and this Rhode Island charmer follows the same biophilic approach to decorating. A maidenhair fern and pothos are paired with beautiful orchids for a stunningly romantic centerpiece. I now want to go to our nursery to get these same plants to recreate this little masterpiece.

The updated kitchen is not what you’d expect to see in a Victorian home, but it retains its romance through the use of plants and basket-style pendant lights.

A newer bed with a woven headboard in the master bedroom is paired with a beautiful, vintage Moroccan blanket that’s embellished with mirrored sequins. Pink and green striped pillows add color and levity to the room. I need to find a scalloped basket like the one seen at the foot of the bed. Isn’t it adorable?

Here’s a few more photos featuring romantic elements from other homes in the book. You’ll find oil paintings, antique furniture, and flowers throughout the pages.

Wearing its original green paint, a former apothecary cabinet was a treasured find that now serves as a sideboard in a Santa Ynez home.

Of course, you can’t think of romantic decorating without dreaming of soft ruffles, chippy furniture, faded florals, and furry friends.

  4. I have had the pleasure years ago to have Fifi take pictures of my home for Romantic Homes Magazine. I miss that magazine so much. She really knows how to capture the beauty in a home. She also is a pet whisper with how pets just gravitate towards her. Thanks for a chance at her new book. I know it is going to be spectacular. Hugs. Kris

  5. Another beautiful book by Fifi. I went on Amazon to browse more of the book. She had a picture of an Aphrodite vase that I recently bought that was similar. I had anticipated putting it outside when the weather got warmer but now I am thinking of displaying it in my house. Her ideas are so great. Thanks for show casing her new book.

  6. Love all the rooms, I’ve always been a fan of mixing old or shabby furniture with new, and anything with ruffles or fringe automatically seems to add some romance.

  7. This IS a romantic home! The white sofa with the precious blue checked chair along with most furnishings in white! The basket lights hanging over the island keep the open and casual feel of the kitchen ohhhh what’s not to love?

  13. Love the Victorian homes, especially when it still has the character.

    As always, stunning selection of images/ideas. I have been narrowing down my inbound newsletters/blogs (too much) but Town and Country Living will forever be coming into my mailbox. You do a wonder job Jennifer.

  14. Your blog was one of the first when I started reading decor blogs and it remains my favorite to this day. I love your cozy, non-pretentious style and of course, I’m a gardener so there’s also that aspect. There’s always something for me to look forward to each day. Thank you!

  15. OK, not gonna be shy… I want that book! 😂 And yes, that centerpiece makes me want to run out and buy some maidenhair fern!
    Her book reminds me how much I miss the magazine “Romantic Homes.”

  16. Love it all! The only thing close to being new in my home is my husband’s recliner 🫤. Hate those things. But I love him ☺️. Thanks for this opportunity.

  17. That mirror in the first picture and the ruffled velvet throw in the last picture have my heart fluttering. 🥰

  21. I adore looking at books which have so many lovely pictures. Thank you for the opportunity to win this book.

  22. Dream look, I’m keeping this post for inspiration. I’m seeing where I can tweak what I currently have as accessories. I believe I will do the Amazon pre-order.

  23. I LOVE seeing the different home styles. We built a “turn of the century” Queen Anne Victorian with a wrap around porch and 2 turrets. We moved in July 2003. We began construction in December 2001, by digging out the side of a hill for our 3 car garage, safe room and exercise area. The house is 4 stories, but only 2 can be seen from the front. The 4th story is a 6th bedroom in the “attic,” with a dormer on the back side of the house.

  24. Your home oozes comfort with all your romantic surroundings. Anyone would love to spend a night at your lovely home.

  25. This was so fun and I love each room. The apothecary cabinet is a stellar find : ) I love ruffles and black and white and I must say the blue and green living room is pretty. Oh and the woven headboard is amazing I wonder if someone made it? Thank you for the great find.

  26. I love Fifi O’Neil’s style. I own two of her books. I look through them often. This book looks beautiful. Thank you for sharing this post.

  27. Ooh, this book looks like it’s fabulous! I love the pictures you have featured and would love to win this book!

  28. The first time I heard about Fifi was from one of my magazines, which I believe was Country Living or maybe Southern Living, but I was hooked, line and sinker on her decor then. To have this book would just put the finishing touch on my love of her way of expressing herself in her surroundings. Please?

  29. I love there are old and new decor pieces within each photo. I see a future coffee table book to purchase. Thanks for sharing.

  30. Jennifer, thank you for continuing to include down-to-earth, realistic home beauty on your blog. The simplicity is restful and inspiring. Thank you also for your garden blog, it’s great to celebrate gardens!
