From McMansion To French Country Cottage

I love this home, which was featured in the February issue of D Home. Dallas designer Martha Sweezey took a large “builder’s special”, with oak cabinetry, monochromatic paint schemes, basic light fixtures, etc. (otherwise known as a McMansion), and turned it into a beautiful home with designer touches and a French country feel.

    I love the grouping of pictures with the plates. Incorporating different shapes always makes for an interesting design element in a room. Bookshelves are also one of my favorite things to decorate.

    I love the look and feel of this cottage. Very open and airy. The French country look always gives off a sense of elegance and this place is no exception.
    Really like the choice of woods within a few of the pictures, gives it that natural feel. Very nicely done!

    As a French Country Lover and Interior Designer, thank you for sharing these inspiring photos. The subtle elegance illuminates throughout the house and I admire that it was not over done which is a little hard to do because most French Country Lovers (including myself) love to collect!

    joyfully,

    I love the green color on the walls in the first photo. I’m looking for a light soft green to paint my living and dining room and that looks perfect. Can you tell me what color that it?
