I have always been a romantic at heart.

It starts with my love of vintage pieces and their stories—those intricately flowered trinkets that hold a memory and simple touches that create a moment on a table or nightstand. I believe in a lifestyle that involves flowers, chandeliers and celebrating every day.

My blog, French Country Cottage, has allowed me to indulge my romantic side and share what I love and what inspires me. To me, a romantic-inspired life embraces nostalgia, but feels fresh and current at the same time. It is one that delights in your favorite things and everyday occasions as much as the special ones. Romantic style tells your story and encourages you to live life beautifully decorated.

You might notice that we have a new look. In the October issue, you’ll find that same romantic charm and style you have come to love, mixed with simple beauty and elegance.

We’ve got you covered, from tours of charming homes to travel and favorite romantic escapes to tips for creating your dream style, ideas for entertaining and much, much more. I’m so excited about our updated and inviting Romantic Homes, and I’m looking forward to sharing more of what I love and what inspires me with you.

Welcome to the new Romantic Homes! We’re so glad that you’re here.
