The French attitude towards redecorating is relaxed. It's the distressed and peeling paint on everything from their homes to their furnishings showing off the imperfections that have taken on a little too much love.
Casting a reflection of smoky greyness with a softness of old when pieces get in its way.
Vignettes take on a dusky shadowing with depth and soul.
Vintage Mahogany and Zinc French Address Plaques....
In my etsy shop!
French pottery stacked high or standing alone. A slightly unevenness to this hand tossed
French "beurre" butter dish charms with village artistry; Less then sophisticated.
The artist does not know how treasured this piece is to me and how its rustic imperfections add.
Subtle and Harmonious
Simple pieces ease their way into my home.
Dramtically tarnished candlestick anchors the tone on tone.
French Chest Of Drawers
French chest taken from its natural raw finish to white with a hue of an undertone of grey to it; I painted and distressed.
I carefully thought this one out as to leave it in the natural or give it a paint technique that looked well lived; A finish that does not compete for attention with other pieces in the room.
An artist lives here and creates here.
Vintage 50-75 year old ox-hair paint brushes also can be found in my etsy shop.
"Joie de vintage"
I love the way my grandfathers studio brushes now rest in my hand and paint as he did.
