Welcome to the ALL NEW French Country Fridays, new and improved but still a place to celebrate the charm of French inspired decor!
We’ve updated our format, added in some guests to keep the French inspiration fresh and exciting! We’ll also be sharing some of our favorite French products, perhaps a beloved French Country Inn as a decor aspiration (even if you’re not traveling yet) and there will be other surprises from time to time… 🙂
As always, we have a great round up of posts to help you Frenchify your Fridays!

Let’s take a look at the French goodness this week!
• Featured this week •
Patina Farm, also known as Velvet & Linen by Brooke Giannetti has long been known to those of us who love French decor and architecture. Located in beautiful Ojai, California, Brooke & her husband architect Steve are inspired by European country homes and decorate with antiques juxtaposed with new details.
Sharon Santoni of My French Country Home shares everything from beautiful floral arrangements cut from her gardens and more. Read about her life in the the French countryside, French food, antiques and her family life outside of Normandy.

This Molinard Creme 24 moisturizer literally puts a smile on my face every day! It’s a blend of sweet almond oil and lemon extracts and the scent is heavenly!! I’d probably use it just for scent, even it it wasn’t such a great cream, but it is. Use it on hands, body, face, or anywhere that needs a bit of extra moisture.
I’m crushing big time on this delicious Baies candle from Diptyque. I first experienced the delightful aroma in a charming French shop and I just had to get it. Now it sits in my family room and I love the scent, even, so subtly, when it’s not lit.
I didn’t necessarily set out to pick all scented products this week, but I’m very driven by lovely aromas. Hermès Eau de Citron Noir is my current fave cologne and it takes me back to a trip to France every time I smell it. This one is unisex but I wouldn’t share it with anyone. I want every drop!
