A Village Artist Lives Here...A French Home

 Burlap Luxe French Home

A home I imagine in a French village, and I
am the village artist.
 
 Raw natural French country-side pieces and objects,
inspire my home and my art in designs.

 My home that acts much like an art studio, where living is
in the art of creating.

 A room filled with objects and pieces, rustic in what I salvage.
Pieces that call out to be loved all over again.

 A Quite Room For This Designer Artist.

 A French Country-Side Basket.
French Champagne ready

 Cafe de Lyon

Rustic crate board I painted into rustic signs, with a French accent to each one. Now in my 
etsy shop,

 The Wine Region Of France
Champagne France

 Galvanized old buckets act as,
Champagne buckets.

 Entertaining 
French blown glasses, Fleur-de-lis flatware, and
my art in creating hand thrown rustic-rural French 
style pottery. I call my roadside pottery.

Yes, as live goes on.... 2017. January. The start. Plain. Down to the roots. Clearity. I love it. Your home is the mirror. The mirror to the songs of nature, spiced with the rustic and elegant style of France.
You never overdo these lines, you keep it calm and clear. You don´t have to hide behind loudness.
I wish you wonders in ths upcoming year. We we fill in, come waht may - in our own way. Huuugiiiies to you, my golden Doré, your friend Méa :))

Doré I so relate ... it is about living surrounded in what we envision beautiful to grace our everyday and feed our creativity. Your imagined French village artist home in California lifts your soul to create in your truly gifted style. Your pale palate is a blank canvas for the beauty you create in your art. I appreciate your friendship and your talent, please always keep inspiring us. Everyday I look around and feel graced by the pieces created by you that enrich our Philadelphia home.
xoxo,
Vera

Your decorating style brings about a sense of peace, calm and sheer loveliness! I just get lost in your photos and I love looking at them over and over again and wondering how I can create the same in my home.
Thanks for sharing Dore. You've brought pretty into my life today and it feels good.

hugs

Entering your home would certainly feel like you're stepping foot into a French cottage in the middle of a quaint village. Loving the peacefulness your French home exudes. The tall candelabra and iron lantern continue to be a favorite of mine!

Your home and artistic style are so rusticly divine. Such a gentle yet powerful presence in your creations. So very beautiful on every level. I hope you are having a wonderful January dear one and I send you many warm hugs.

champagne brunch sounds divine. and your signs are beautiful. i won't be surprised if your line gets picked up by a major retailer as your signature style is so well defined and harmonious. what are you serving for brunch on those gorgeous roadside plates? and did it take 7 years to scrub the finish off that naked wood side table? xox

Sundays are for blog hopping and coffee. I am always so happy to find your posts! The beautiful home you've created always makes me smile.

Oh, to have a home in France has always been my dream.

A place to create can happen in any room.

Happy Sunday to you sweet Dore.
