Burlap Luxe Salvage French Home

Salvage French Home

"The Love Of Beauty" 

Rarely, will a piece make it into my home
 before I give it a paint finish.
 French Iron Lantern

Salvaged from a Malibu seaside home 
remodeling job.
I had my sights on this spirited piece,
finding comfort in pieces with
history and age.
 Washed By The Salted Breeze

"Gracious it sits as a side table lamp, 
lighting pieces with country French style."
 A Mix Of Antique European Style

"I love the mix of pieces that curate a style of
 relaxed rustic French".

 Ticking And French Linen

Old and rural a fabric of choice
 Rustic Paint Finishes

I love creating heartbreaking old finishes.
 French Shutter

Naturally weathered and will be refinished in
a paler patina of what I call old.

Latest rose wreath art piece made of cartapesta, salvage wood, 
garden wire, and paints adding a French feel to this 
art piece.

Hand sculpted roses, leaves and twigs in cartapesta mounted on
layers of salvage rustic woods and vintage wire mesh that spoke to me 

Created In Rustic Decay

Artistically created with heart and soul.

 Vintage Dictionary Ephemera
Three main classes of garden roses.

Beautiful examples of your style and timeless mood. Like you, I'll never tire of painting junk white and reviving the castoffs. Time for me to get into the studio and create fall and holiday magic. xox

Beautiful, Dore. I love everything you have created here. xoox

I am slowly working on my table. Not much to report other than, I found out it was covered with tons of latex paint. I put it outside and the summer heat almost melted it, and it ended up being easier to scrap off and tear off than sand off. Funny... It looked like plastic... The two sides of the table were done differently. One has such a pretty gray color... the other revealed wood stain... Not worried... I will make it work...

Doré, so full of thought. Nothing loud in this French spirit home, just grace - does not take much, no showing off, but the effect is even stronger.
Style written by a hand so gifted, creating an atmophere, that breathes pure beauty. And like the heart of it all, your heavenly creation, so much care in all you do! You can feel your caring and all your devotion just by looking at these pictures. And yes, the salvaged pieces you brought to life, I know so much, how this feels.
Wonderful is your world!
I hug you, my dear Doré, have magical days - your friend Méa :))

Doré a visit to your home and etsy store calms ... embraced by your paler shades of faux and created faded palate. Your talent is impressive and your latest art pieces are delightful.

You make me want to pick up my paint brush and get busy! I have so many frames and chairs to finish painting and your post was the push I needed.

Dore, your beautiful style will forever be my favorite Rustic French style.

Beautiful patina! That lantern is a treasure. I can't resist old iron pieces.
Happy weekend, Dore.

Dear Dore, well, where do I begin? Firstly, I suppose I should apologize for my hiatus..I have been terrible these past few months about posting to my own blog, let alone visiting anyone else's! So glad I am here to see what magic you have created, and breathe in the fresh air you supply! I love the Iron lantern! such grace! Everything you touch seems to turn to gold...well white, rustic gold that is. I have been so busy these past months with family, and health issues for both my husband, and myself. I am back in full swing now, creating an entire new set of OZ characters! They were so much fun, come see when you have a minute! As always sweet lady, such beauty you have created, timeless treasures are new again within your heart, and hands. xoxo Christel

Your creativity never ceases to inspire me. I've tried to emulate your painted finishes with little success and unfortunately i haven't your wonderful flare for styling. Bisous.
