There is so much romance that surrounds all things French. From pretty ephemera and textiles, perfectly aged rusted iron and lovely tarnished silver to gorgeous scrolled fonts, beautifully detailed designs and ornate architectural details.

Many of these pieces may seem “imperfect” to some, but to me, it is these imperfections that I look for when purchasing pieces. I love the aged, time worn look.

Each individual piece has it’s own history and when brought together they create the perfect blend of warmth, interest and elegance.
