French Country Collage

I’ve been looking at some French Country decorating books as sometimes Shabby chic & French Country seem to overlap. I’m trying to learn more of how to differentiate them, Distressed pieces, muted colors. I guess Shabby Chic is more romantic, French Country more rustic and more about bringing the outdoors in. This special blog posted a French Country collage.

I just adore it! The colors are perfect. It’s clean & crisp yet very welcoming. Featured is our French Planters.

I’m thinking this home can have this:

In other areas of the home. Birds, nests, cages seem to be mainstays in both French Country & Shabby Chic decorating. Any clear, cut way to differentiate the two?

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.
