English Country Chic ...

I like to think that I am "French Country" which is funny ... because I am probably not.  But I love the look and do my best.  Then I am drawn to images such as these and I realize I must have a little "English Country" in my soul.

And let me tell you ... this is NOT Your Old Lady English Country ... Dig the railheads on floral!

Mix and Match Chairs ... and that was NO random mix and match!  Do you understand the thought process that must go into that relaxed look??  It's like the make-up you have to put on to achieve the Natural Look!

Warm. Fresh. Timeless. 

Crewel has always been a favorite of mine.  It brings Color, Texture and Life to linen!

Mixed with Red and White.  I love the very Perfect Randomness here!

A litte Fox in the Garden.  Yes, we had a "couple" of Fox's that lived in our front yard last Spring.  So this is particularly sweet.  They brought us gifts of dead mice every few days ... We appreciated the help and they were happy they had paid rent!

I know it's a little fuzzy ... taken with Don's i-phone.  I made him take it!!  I have to say little fox man was pretty content sunning in the front yard ... I saw no need to stir him up!!

Ever since being introduced to SeaGrass ... from a trip to the Ocean Reef Club and Joni at Cote de Texas, I am single handedly trying to bring Sea Grass into every home.  The texture is amazing and it is the perfect backdrop for Every type of fabric.

Maybe I just want to live in a place that I can plop my wingback in the Garden and never worry about it!

Lavender has made a comeback ... and Men are bowing down!!

I want some Antlers.  My Family is amused.  Don says we can have them when we own a ranch.  Now, as a coatrack ... maybe I can win this battle!!

Put your feet up, visit HERE, and enjoy the new line of fabrics and let's celebrate HOME!




  1. I am seeing so much more of this now. I like it in a pillow. A family of foxes live in my neighbors back yard. I love seeing them.

  2. It's NOT EASY to accomplish the looks here! The mixing of these prints is amazing!

  3. I love this look, it reminds me of my mother! I can see a little of it in my home, but Im not generally a 'floral' person. I love some of those fabrics. Im not sure if others have trouble seeing these images, but the 2nd image doesn't load on my end? Sorry to be difficult! It may just me. We have foxes all around us too- isn't their cry dumbfounding; especially in the middle of the night? Have a lovely day friend!

  4. I love big cabbage rose florals. I love foxes. Combine the two and I am all in! Lovely eye candy.

  5. I love the look of an English room....but after having a floral sofa I will never have one again. I got sick of it so fast...... I now have an off white sofa and I can change it as often as I want with new pillows!

  6. This look is to peaceful and comforting. I love the look but only in small doses for my home. Am I the only one who loves it but can pull it off without looking more shabby than chic.

  7. I love the look of florals on chintz, but I know I'd get tired of it quickly. Cheaper and better for me to just enjoy the photos!
