Fil De Fer – Wiring Up Your Decor

Fil de fer, literally meaning Thread of Iron, is a prominent feature in French Country décor. It incorporates containers of all kinds made of iron, metal and wire (i.e., baskets, strainers, racks, trivets, etc.). However you describe it, it is a rustic yet elegant element in interior design.

La beauté de la Lavande

La beauté de la Lavande. The beauty of lavender. It can be enjoyed in fresh bouquets, dried arrangements and even in food. It is fragrant and colorful, delicate and soothing.

I love how it can be a simple decoration just by hanging it.

I recently ordered dried lavender from Dreamy Whites.

I was so excited when the box of two bundles came. I had the perfect spot in mind where I wanted to hang my newly acquired dried lavender. But first, I had to put my arrangement together. It consisted of a branch, two linen hearts I had made, twine and the lavender.

I made three bundles out the two lavender bundles I had received. Maria Carr from Dreamy Whites gives a large amount for only $12.00 each.

I Believe In Linen!

IBelieveInLinen@astrid.seI love the tag line on the latest catalog cover from Libeco Fabrics, “Believe In Linen.” Libeco is a leading manufacturer and distributor of Belgium linen. Like them, “I believe in Linen!” I not only believe in it, I love linen. It is my favorite fabric. It can add sophistication to a room while at the same time, exude a casual laissez-faire attitude.

Linen can be very affordable. You can find linen textiles at H&M Home and Ikea for very reasonable prices.

I even have linen in my own bedroom. I found the duvet and shams at Ikea. I inherited a cedar chest from my husband’s grandmother and it was full of linen pillow cases!
