    All fun and interesting. I’d have to do a lot of work on that chateau! I wonder what their heating bill is?

    1. I think if you take the same approach by lighting up but leave out the crystal and gilding, it will update your look with a more relaxed country feel. Think washed linen in light colors, light woods and chippy paint and patina, plus lots of organic bits in wood and rattan. The main thing is to use a lighter hand than you might have in the past – lighter colors, lots of neutrals (you can always use pop accent colors) and way fewer decorative accessories. One bold planter or vase instead of a collection of items that don’t relate. Hope that helps!
