Jan./Feb. Veranda

There’s a great article in the new Veranda magazine about Charles Spada, a Boston-based designer and his centuries old house in Normandy and how he renovated it.

All I can say is, WOW!

He has an amazing collection of engravings.

I love how he added the leopard print to the antique sofa. It gives an updated feel to this centuries old beauty and keeps the furnishings fresh amongst all the antiques.
Country French designer, Charles Faudree, uses animal prints in a lot of his interiors for accent and  has designed a couple animal print fabrics for Vervain.

Love the faded grays. Look at that awesome iron chandy in the mirror’s reflection.

Nice contrast of the painted chairs with the rich warm color of the table.

I’m always on the lookout for interesting articles on French Country decorating and this one did not disappoint.
Happy Decorating,
