    As much as I love Pinterest and Instagram, nothing beats sitting in a cozy chair with my cup of tea, dreaming over a book chock full of design ideas and stunning vignettes. It’s truly a great escape. The images you have shared today from Courtney’s book are breathtaking…

    Thanks for making my morning!

  5. I’ve been following the French Country Cottage blog for quite some time and I never tire of the incredible images and exquisite vignettes. I could just move into Courtney’s dreamy greenhouse!

  6. I’ve always loved books and especially loved flowers. My mother had what you would call a black thumb, she killed every plant she ever owned! But, she was talented with the sewing machine and could whip up curtains and a bedspread faster than anyone I know. But it left me with a desire to have a home and yard filled with plants and flowers. The photo of the lilacs is breathtaking, the colors piercing in their intensity. It’s amazing how much pleasure can be derived from a cup of tea and a decorating book filled with these images!

  7. Oooh la la! So many pretties!

  20. Cate Quinn says:

    Long time ago I worked for a publisher and coffee table books were my absolute favourite. My husband’s uncle happened to be in charge of staff sales, so was always on the lookout for books for me. The selection he kept back for me where home interiors and flower arrangements. My collection before my children came along was proudly displayed for all my visitors to enjoy. I’d love this book to restart my collection, as my old books were damaged when we had leak in our attic.

    This is a truly beautiful book. Your opening paragraph made me smile. I am also moved by a beautiful scene or photo. I had fixate on how someone has put together a vignette or decorated a side table. Incidentally, I feel that way about your kitchen. Everything from the lights, countertops and cabinets are pure perfection. That is how I initially started following your blog. I saw your kitchen somewhere and had to learn more.

    1. Thank you Ruth! And that is lovely to hear… 🙂 It’s so funny when we look at others’ homes whom we wish to emulate and we forget that our own homes can inspire, as well.
