Architecture and Design Library: French Country
by Barbara Buchholz (Author), Lisa Skolnik (Author)
French Country style is warm, comfortable and easy to live with. And, surprisingly, it works great in an open floor plan.
The May 2017 issue of Coastal Living carried the article Coastal Twenty 1997-2017 What’s Classic Now by Betsy Cribb and Ellen McGauley. In it they say; “The coast has its own elements of style – a library of looks woven through the homes that rise up from the shoreline. Here, we’ve celebrated 20 enduring design ideas that define today’s most beautiful beach houses.”

Take time to select exterior lighting that really enhances your home.
From the time you pull up to your home, your exterior lighting sets the tone. Modern or Contemporary to Beach, Rustic or Historic styles, your lighting reflects your personal style and taste.
What style is your home? Coordinate with the architecture.
Or add style and flair with the right lighting.
From traditional to eclectic, no matter what style you choose, coordinating your metal finishes can make all the difference in pulling a look together.
There are more choices than ever in metal finishes. Brass, bronze, chrome, nickel and stainless in bright polished or matte brushed finish, each sets its own style.
Then there are custom painted finishes to really personalize your look.
Ekena Millworks Ceiling CM19SP/162957 Ceiling Medallion painted and faux finished
I love the look of traditional plasterwork and millwork. Now, you can get the look of fragile plaster in molded polyurethane – lightweight, easy to install and surprisingly inexpensive! You can install a ceiling medallion as an architectural focal point to your dining room, entry, bedroom, even over a bath!
You really can get a ceiling medallion for under $10.00! Really!
