French Country Design

For some years now I've had a passion for French Country decorating!
It started with the purchase of our living room
furniture.
Green and sage small print gingham with cranberry red
plaid throw pillows.
(the plaid pillows have worn out so I need to replace them)
It started my whole love of French Country Decor.
Now, I'm trying to decide what curtains to make for our living room.
In fact, I've outgrown some of my decor and am ready
for a fresh look.
I still love the greens, reds, yellows all the colors of French Decor,
but I want different fabrics. I saw this look and I just love it
(courtesy of HGTV)
I'm so drawn to those colors, reds, black gingham and toile.
I thought maybe I would change it up completely and go with
blues, grays and taupe's
but I fear as my mom said
I would get bored of it quickly,
plus, it would mean spending too much money to do a
complete remodel.
I like those colors above, but there's not punch of color.
So will I get bored,
She may be right.
This is my living room now
With Fall/Winter around the corner I will be changing the curtains.
I'm also ready for a new area rug,
what do you think?
I will be rearranging the furniture to face our gas fireplace
as well.
Of course, our house is on the market, one more month
so before I do anything major,
it will be small changes until we see what happens with the
sell of our home.
In the meantime, I will search French country Decor on google
and see what inspirations I find!
