What's Courtney's story?

I am a mom, blogger and interior stylist and the girl behind the curtain at the blog French Country Cottage. I invite readers to step inside the renovation of my 1940s cottage and share in my romantic French-style, DIY designs and projects. I love a mix of elegant and rustic and believe that rooms don’t have to cost a fortune to be beautiful and comfortable.

Favorite part of planning a dinner party:

I love planning the decorations and table setting. Whether it’s a themed party or a casual get-together with a couple of friends. Creating a magical setting with linens, beautiful china, stemware and silverware is what I love most.

Three things that make my home happy:

The antique French armoire in my living room.
Gorgeous French chairs.
My grandmother’s Hollywood Regency sheaf of wheat table.
