Silver and Gold Leafing

How To….Rule your {French Country} Roost!!

French Country design stems from the countryside of France.  Styles include both rural farmhouse designs as well as grandeur chateaus. The style emits a rustic, warm and comfortable feeling. It is both graceful and inviting.

French Country style easily fits into elegant homes and country houses alike.

Taking inspiration from the rural farmhouses in the south of France, The Rooster is a wonderful concept in which to enhance the European character of your space. You can even take your queue for the paint palette straight from the feathers of the fowl itself.


Here are a few ideas on how you can get the rustic French Country look!


  • Saturated reds, brilliant yellows and rich blues lend themselves as a core color scheme of French Country Design. With the right colors, textures, furniture and accessories, you can decorate almost any home’s interior to make it look like French Country.



  • If you are not comfortable painting your walls in such vibrant colors. You can choose a more subtle yet equally stunning option of infusing these colors into your space with textiles, drinkware and tableware.


  • Pictures of other farm animals, such as pigs, cows, ducks and horses, are also typically found in the French Country side – so slide a few of these into your decorating scheme as well!



  •  Choose furniture with a rustic feel – slightly distressed and dark in color.




  • Don’t go overboard on the Rooster collection. Stick with a few pieces scattered throughout the room or grouped together to create an attractive display.




  •  Look for beautiful, rustic French Style Ceramics. With our without roosters!







You can take aspects from French Country design and modify it to suit your needs and the look you would like in your own home; whether you want a full on French Country theme or if you would prefer a more subtle approach using just a few items to suggest a little worldliness. We are here to help you take your home to the level you would prefer!


It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere!!!

The key to hosting a great cocktail party is that the host/hostess is relaxed. The host/hostess set the tone and the mood for the entire party. When you are having a good time, your guests will have a good time.

Before hosting a cocktail party, there are a few key factors I like to consider:

  • How many people will be attending?
  • How will you invite or notify your guests?
  • Will it be casual or formal?
  • Will the party be indoors or outdoors?
  • What type of food will be served?
  • What type of drinks will be served?
  • Will you request for your guests to bring anything?

The more prepared you are before the party, the more you will be able to relax and enjoy yourself as well. The easiest way to be prepared is to make sure you have all of your barware and accessories set up and ready to go. This makes it simple for you to make a drink for your guest or for them to make one for themselves.

Below are a few amazing bar accessories we carry in-store to help make your cocktail party one to remember!
