Let Nature Shine
Simple is often best when decorating with fresh greenery. Courtney Allison of French Country Cottage likes to showcase the beauty of Mother Nature’s creations rather than embellishing them with over- the-top store-bought decor. One suggestion: Adorn a wall-hung wreath with quiet elegance, as she does, by tying on a single ribbon bow in a soft color. Courtney’s new book, French Country Cottage, is filled with similar ideas and romantic interpretations of French country style (available at Amazon.com).
