French Dressing - for the Bedroom!

Divine rustic linens of billowing drapes; the gentle patina of wood, stone and plaster; sparkling chandeliers and fine ruffled bedlinen create the sublimely romantic French bedroom.

My husband and I just had such an enjoyable time going through your inspiring post with our morning coffee. Even he was captivated by these images, and now understands what is meant by the phrase "romantic French bedroom". I see a redecorating project in our future, thanks to you and your beautiful blog!!!

Hello Glenda

What a magnificent post - the tones and shades are harmonious and welcoming. I have yet to meet a piece of linen I did not love. I adore bed linen, of the pure variety.

I have just spent a delicious twenty minutes scrolling back through your blog, loving the chalky textures and washed linens, and how carefully you edit your images so they work together in harmony. I keep you on RSS, always a pleasure!

Love the pictures! Especially the last from Tessa Francesca! A few years ago our house was featured in a style magazine, Tessa made the photoshoot. She is a young and very talented photographer.

Anna at the Doll House said...

I am quite overcome by these sensuous images. I can almost feel the softness of goose down amongst the voluptuous, frilled white bedlinen.


Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

All these images are just breathtaking, aren't they? The bed linens are simply luscious. I've never seen anything quite like that decorated bottle. You certainly do a wonderful job of providing respite from the ordinary! It's always such a treat to visit!
