Romantic Seating, Frenchy Style

Linen slipcovers and needlepoint pillows.
A sweet ballet pink table...a ruffled lampshade
A white linen slipcover,
rusted urns with ivy,
bird cage and old books,
a victorian garden table...
When I sit in my chaise I dream of spots 
like those above...
they are from the new book
The French Inspired Home
by Carolyn Westbrook.
I am having a giveaway sponsored by Cicobooks.
To win a copy click here!
This is a little reminder with two new pictures
 from this marvelous book on French Decor. 


  1. Your chaise looks like a dreamy place to relax!

  2. Amy, These are all so beautiful...your chaise fits right in...are you sure that's not in the book? ;-)

    LOVE the pic of you and hubby on the cycle!


  3. Beautiful!!! Love the lampshade in the first pic. I will have to pick up that book for sure!!!

  4. Just found you from Savvy Southern Style great little read you have here. I had to tell you I met Carolyn at the Country Living Fair last weekend in Atlanta. Found her just as engaging as her writing style. Love the book! I was able to get an autographed copy while there.

  5. I would love to win the book...but if I don't, I think I will buy it anyway!!


  6. I love that round pink table at the top. I can just see it in red...

  7. That pink table between the two cozy chairs with all those luxurious pillows would make me very happy. I love your cozy chaise too with the slipcovers and the throw.


  8. Gorgeous photos!!! Love this look.

  9. Well I am now convinced that if I don't win it I will just HAVE to buy it! Thanks for sharing more pics! take care, Maryann

  10. Amy, I'm so glad to have met you in blog-land! Your site is gorgeous - that chaise lounge looks like the perfect place to either take a nap, or read that wonderful book you are giving away!!! Looking forward to seeing many more posts in the future!

  11. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment! Your blog is beautiful and I am now a follower! I am really loving the romantic french look!

  12. All are beautiful and romantic pictures. I LOVE your chaise! Thanks for sharing.

  13. I love the slip covered chairs with the large ruffle, right up my alley!

  14. These are the kind of furniture's that gives relaxation to both Body & mind, The comfort of it helps the body to relax, the beauty and work of furniture relaxes the Mind.

  15. I just clipped and pasted the first photo of this blog for my slipcover file and wished I had thought about gathered rather than pleated skirts for my two wing chairs but I was planning on making a second cover for each anyway. THEN I read that this photo is from the book I just WON on your giveaway! Can't wait to get it. One or two of the French decorator (coffee table) books I was telling you about are more formal and I like this style better. Oh...the chair on the left...the darker one? It looks very similar to the 25 meters of fabric I just bought in Hanoi for slipcovers. I'd better get busy!
