I have been a fan of French country style for many years and the first few years I didn't own any French antiques and only a couple of English antiques. I decorated with mostly new furniture and accessories in French country style colors of brick reds, mustard yellows, sage greens and more when those colors were very popular. As time passed my taste and style changed. Not the French style of it, but the colors. I started leaning more towards neutrals and then adding in more blues, tans and soft greens and grays. I was very fortunate to travel to France three years ago on a brocante shopping trip and was able to ship home some purchases. I truly hope to go again some day, but will probably only buy things I can bring home on the plane. I have also found some wonderful French antiques right here in the states in antique shops, flea markets, Ebay and Etsy shops. You don't have to travel to France for some great finds.
This French buffet in the foyer is great for extra storage and I love the wood. This was found in Normandy in a large building filled with lots more goodies.
