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.

I have a confession. I have a slight obsession with mirrors. And the obsession doesn’t care if they are vintage or new — or new, but look vintage. Those beautiful, light-bouncing pretties that add to a … Continue reading
