Grand tour. The Entry.




For new readers...I design this house...This is a Parisian style.....The century of the house, is a copy of what you would find around Paris in the 1700. 
I put my twist on it. So welcome and come in...


come in Zacky and Tommy!


Zacky follows Tommy and loves to charge him....He wants to play with him...Tommy always stays still even when charged...looking at him like "but ... what is wrong with you?".



The ceiling is Aqua blue...


I got this Chandelier at Lowes on line....Yep.

I could not find sconces anywhere  for cheap to match the Chandelier. 
I bought online at Home Depot, sconces, with the right style but silver.
I copied the Chandelier and painted the sconces with metallic copper paint and a brush....YeS!
You can do that!
The paint tubes from the craft store!
Antiqued them with brown paint....





My husband is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and spent a lot of time in China, where he got this beautiful picture.


The living room on the right...To be continued....

Sunflower paint color on the walls.

The floor is cobblestone placed in an Antique pattern ....Got it on clearance...Always take your time and shop early to get the best prices...
Got the lights early too...

BEautiful!! My last house that exact same "sunflower yellow", and I loved it because it brought the sunshine in. :) I love your double doors in the front, too. Thanks for sharing your entry.

Le Chateau des fleurs said...

I like the sunflower color. It is warm and very Southern France.
The house is French eclectic. Mix of Paris, Provence.
