French Home Tour

The sales pitch for this lovely French home says, "Set in natural peaceful surroundings with a panoramic view facing south . . . "

Even though this lovely bisque-yellow home with an inviting entrance is in France, it looks like one that could be nestled into an Arizona hill side.

Don't you love those two sets of French doors - gives a sense of openness to this narrow living/dining room. My grandmother, a proper NY woman, always told me you touches of red - just touches throughout your home. Guess the owner of this house knew that. Probably my favorite spot would be just outside those French doors - on that patio - overlooking the valley. Too bad I couldn't find a picture of that.

How embracing is this kitchen! Note her (assumably so) the copper pans hung to the left of the window. The typical French country kitchen isn't set up for aesthetics, but for practicality. Many French country kitchens have a large table - often in the center of the room. Obviously there's no room here, but plenty of counter space makes up for that.

Have a wonderful weekend! BTW - Melissa at The Inspired Room has a list of other beautiful things you just won't want to miss - along with this Hostess Gift: Apple Pie in a Jar - recipe which dd and I will make soon.
