small street in the town of Belleme

I am so excited and ever-so-slightly-nervous to bring you this first in depth home decor video.    We shot the film a few weeks ago, and since there has been time spent  on editing and also pulling together some ideas for those of you who are inspired by the look.

The video is available on the My French Country Home You Tube channel.

I receive a lot of emails asking for advice on authentic French home decor, so I have created these mood boards for you, with links showing where to find everything.  Whenever possible I picked antique pieces.   As disclosure I’ll add that some of the links may earn me a commission … let’s say if that happens,  I can increase my budget for the next video!

We shot this video in the picture-perfect town of Belleme, about an hour from my house.   It was a cold day, but we received a warm welcome from Josiane Lenoir at the Hotel de Suhard and from several of the antique dealers in the town.  The day was spent first of all with Josiane, then a lovely lunch followed by some antique shopping – the dealers opening their doors just for us – happy days!

As you know, these videos are a new adventure for me and the blog, and I would love to have your feedback and your ideas for what else you would like to see.   The shooting calendar is already planned for the next couple of months but I’ll be open to ideas for later in the spring.   It’s amazing how much time and planning each film takes to arrange, shoot and edit, so I’d like to think that I’m showing you the stuff you most want to see!
