All things inspired and with a tad French Country and cottage included.
I am so excited to finally share an exciting project
I have been working on behind the scenes for awhile now.
A French Country Cottage inspired collection at Soft Surroundings.
Sometimes I pause and think a bit about where this blog all started…
that first post that went up. That first time I hit ‘Publish’ and felt all those butterflies in my stomach of a new adventure beginning. It was all a bit of unfolding and unraveling for awhile and
a whole lot of baby steps that added up to big ones as I found my footing and
became more comfortable sharing a piece of me here.
And sometimes in the midst of the regular work and the every day you are doing
something like an amazing collaboration opportunity with a company you love lands in your inbox.
I am so excited to share a French Country Cottage curated collection Soft Surroundings.
Where we started
Decor Cooperative is a collaboration with Soft Surroundings where we curated a few of their pieces that I love. They have a lot of pieces I love… so that was the easy part.
We narrowed the list down to 10 items- and yes, it was hard to do eliminate some of the things we loved.
And then . unfortunately, there were a lot of the items that I chose for my collection that had to be set aside for future additions due to a few supply issues-
so we scrambled a bit last minute and found a few new pieces
and ended up with 8 that we felt fit the look.
(and yes, the others are on the list to be added
and I can hardly wait to share those when they come in.)
We chose items that I already know and love and some new ones that were perfect
for a French Cottage and vintage loving heart.
Sharing just a peek at each piece today and more to come since there is a lot to share.
This is one of my favorites- it is such a charmer.
Dainty in size and big on details and character- this is something that you don’t find everyday.
Made in Italy and with the most beautiful vintage inspired finish-
and all of those little drawers and cubbies and pull out desk.
I absolutely love it-and I can’t wait to show you where it landed.
Seriously pretty and comfy- this chair has such pretty lines and details.
Like all that tufting and a flirty little skirt.
It is perfect for plopping next to the fireplace or tucked into a corner.
I thought of architectural salvage and old french doors when I saw this mirror.
Adding interest and beauty while bringing a burst of light to a room
and I love the vintage industrial feeling it has as well.
This is perfect for placing behind a sofa, in a corner or even in a decadent large bathroom.
Something I have been looking for for awhile now- vintage horse artwork.
I love those old oil paintings and vintage prints – and the noble beautiful horses
standing proud. I have placed in above the mantel and above the sideboard and it is such a charmer.
I love it in the smaller size tucked into a grouping as well.
Vintage-inspired ticking pillowcases are sweet for adding that feeling of nostalgia to your room.
I love the dainty crocheted edging and old-style monogram embroidery.
They remind me of something I would find at a flea market.
And available in two colors, these are perfect for adding to a guest bedroom, cozy attic room or even tucking into your own bed – love that crocheted edging.
I love anything that is detailed but not over the top.
This pillow is an absolute dream.
The delicate embroidery and details add warmth and texture, while the color is neutral making it a perfect addition in any room.
A rug adds so much texture and dimension to a room – and for me, vintage rugs grab my heart and run away with it. So this vintage-inspired rug had me at “hello”
With soft muted tones and vintage design, it is perfect for adding warmth underfoot and a whole lot of beautiful subtle vintage inspired color and style. Think in small sizes for layering or in large
for creating a charming seating area or underfoot in the bedroom.
Another of my absolute favorites- this chest is incredible.
I fell in love with the French country sensibilities of this piece the minute I saw it.
An abundance of space in the roomy drawers and curves galore create a beautiful focal point – and that hand-rubbed paint finish is perfection on a piece that looks like it is 150 years old.
I adore it doubling as a nightstand or as a sideboard or chest in a room.
So there you have the first of the collection! I hope that you like it and found something that speaks to you as well!!
I am so honored that Soft Surroundings asked me to collaborate with them
and curate a collection of things that speak to me and my style.
