My Maison....My Home

My customers are often asking me what my home looks like after seeing my store. So I thought I would post a few pictures of my home and style of decorating which is French Country. I love color but not on the walls. I keep my walls pretty neutral, except in the dining room which is a bright yellow and then add punches of color here and there by way of furnishings and accessories. I love the French Country style which to me is rustic elegance. It's casual, cozy and warm! Living Room...... Kitchen and Dining Room...
and some favorite accessories...

Hello Bonjour....

Well this is my first attempt at blogging! It's been quite a year and a half for me. I retired from the Federal Government after 34 years and in October 2006, I started a new retail store called "French Vanilla Home and Garden". In July 2007 I launched my store's e-commerce website and now this....blogging! Who would have thought! Has it been challenging?....a bit, stressful?.... some days, rewarding?....most definitely! I love owning my own retail store, filling it with things I love and helping my customers find that perfect item or gift! I am enjoying this new phase of my life and look forward to learning new things, having new adventures and making new friends along the way!
