Do you love starting the year off with fresh inspiration?
I am on a mission to obtain a French Country look in our kitchen!
Miss M and I have been talking about a new wreath for the front door and
 have yet to decide on a design!
I am thinking of creating one similar but hanging it on the pantry door!
Sounds like a good reason to go to Michael's! 

I can totally see this kitchen in a cape style home!
 What a fabulous design!
This kitchen alone would have sold the house to me!

NOW.....this could not be more stunning! 
Sunflowers are so often used in French Country, as is yellow ware! 
Although absolutely breathtaking, it's a little too big for me! 

An absolute favorite nook and cranny!

Architectural Digest is always a good reference for beautiful inspiration! 

This is perfect....wouldn't change a thing! 
This would be the kitchen I would choose! 

Don't you just love bench seating in the kitchen! 
It's also so much more interesting to incorporate mismatched chairs! 
A very intimate dining nook! Elegant, yet warm! 

This kitchen reminded me so very much of Miss Becky's kitchen in her beautiful log cabin.
 I have referenced Miss Becky in previous posts! 
Her husband was in charge of the Jackson Symphony and 
Miss Becky was one of my mother's best friends! 
They had a huge French Country kitchen very similar to this one! 
Love it all, especially the mix of organic fabrics!

I have been a huge fan of Nell Hill for years! This is one of her designs!
This is straight out of a Mississippi home in the Belhaven district! 
I had a good friend at the age of thirteen whose home was in this area.
We often met at his home, with a few other friends and 
his Mother (an elegant Southern Belle) 
served us pound cake and sweet iced tea!
I was in heaven! 

A lovely use of color!
It's calming, don't you think?
Who wouldn't be happy at the breakfast bar!

Pure Charm!
Our foyer in our first Texas home had wallpaper very similar to this! 

It's always good to think outside the box of the norm....like the round copper sink!
A fabulous kitchen to just hang out and have a glass of wine! 

I so hope you enjoyed this inspiration!
