A beautiful new decorating book arrived in the mail about a week ago
from Jacqueline deMontravel
the editor of Romantic Homes magazine.

It's titled "HERS'
and is all about the spaces in a home that are for Her or
for bringing a touch of femininity to the masculine spaces.
Since I love Romantic Homes magazine
I knew that a book by Jacqueline would be filled with beautiful rooms
and gorgeous decorating.
When I first picked it up at the post office,
I thumbed through it quickly on my way out and
I was in love right away.
I could hardly wait to delve further into it!

Later that evening, I read through page after page of beautiful inspiration
and I found lots of ideas and tips for decorating rooms in my own home.

I love this room and loved the grooved knotty pine walls
and loving the grays and louis chair in this photo.

The spaces in HERS include the outdoors and the
garden photos are absolutely gorgeous.

Those slipcovers and the wire cloche...

Of course love this- so elegant and French.

Gorgeous red striped chairs with cabbage roses pillows...

and this mirror...

So many gorgeous inspiring photos and details in this beautiful
HERS is available for purchase at HERE
and my friend Janet at Shabby Fufu is giving a way a copy of this book
at her blog this week
I just might be hosting a giveaway shortly as well! ;) so stay tuned!

Thank you Jacqueline deMontravel for this wonderful inspiring book!

  16. Hi Courtney,

    Here I am, nearly a full year later, and I finally found this beautiful post you did on HERS. It's such a beauty, I was so grateful to have little snippets of our home & garden included (your picture #1, and #5). Your blog is so wonderfully inspiring, and your home beautiful! I've had such a very good time reading thru some of your posts, and you've inspired me to spruce up a few things around chez moi. xo Lidy
