A Vintage French Baguette Cart and a Farrow & Ball Paint, Wood Planks, Entryway Makeover

I wanted to share this French baguette cart we just listed in our online shop along with a before and after of our entryway. 

This is the largest French baguette cart I have ever found. 

It would make a perfect laundry basket and or a basket to use to store extra linens in. 
You can find the cart in our online shop here.....

I also wanted to share a before and after of our entryway.
It used to be pretty much a solid red color.
We were lucky the wood planks were under the drywall.
The wood floors were also under the carpet. 

The entryway gets changed up all the time.  This is what it looks like right now. 
Here are a few different ways I have styled this space the past couple of years. 

We removed all of the drywall and the shutters.

I painted the walls in the entryway Farrow & Ball Cornforth White
The ceiling, trim, and door are painted Farrow & Ball All White.
I originally painted the floors Farrow & Ball Manor House Gray
They are now painted Farrow & Ball Ammonite
I am always amazed what a little bit of white paint can do to a space. 
I will be sharing some more before and afters on the blog.

Master Bathroom Makeover with Unlacquered Brass Rohl Faucets

We recently renovated our master bathroom.  We partnered with Rohl Faucets for our makeover.
I have used Rohl faucets throughout my home and love the timeless feel they add to a room. 
Rohl faucets are handcrafted in England and are made of high quality materials.

In our master bathroom I was hoping to achieve a European look. 
Rohl faucets will help add European charm to any room. 

I chose the unlacquered brass finish.  
Unlacquered brass is a living finish and will patina over time.
If you don't want the color to change, I would recommend the inca brass finish.
I personally love that the patina will change and the faucet will appear aged over time.

I love the cross handles on the Perrin & Rowe Georgian Era tub filler. 
The porcelain hot and cold covers on the handles give the faucet a timeless feel.

The  Unlacquered brass tub filler looks so pretty against the carrara marble subway tiles. 
The handheld shower is such a nice feature about the tub filler.

 The unlacquered brass is already starting to get a patina. 

The Perrin & Rowe Georgian Era Shower unit also has a hand shower along with the large beautiful shower head.

Era tub filler in our other bathroom.
I went with polished nickel in this bathroom.
The polished nickel is a protected finish and will not obtain a patina over time.

I really love both finishes.

Citrus Season In California and New French Farmhouse Finds In the Shop

I am trying really hard this year to get back into the swing of blogging.
I took such a long break it has been hard to start back up again.
I am not a writer so I find instagram to be an easier way to communicate.
However with the algorithm changes I want to try and start blogging again.
I thought I would share  a few images of the new French Farmhouse items I recently listed in our online shop.....
We are in the middle of citrus season here in California so every January I like to use citrus in my product pictures.   There will be lots of images with citrus. 

French bread boards are so fun to use around the house.

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
I hope to be back soon.
