Prepare to Drool...French Décor Magazines Online!

Pin It!
maison du sud I don’t know about you, but I never tire of looking at anything related to décor or France! Make that décor in France and I am hooked! So today I want to share with you a few of my favorite French décor magazines that I have found online…and they are all free! It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak French, the pictures say it all! Take for example this wonderful salon from Campagne Décoration! (Click on any of the magazine titles to be taken to the full article and more beautiful photos!) I love that fireplace…and that mirror…and that chair…sigh!

campagne decoration1 Here’s another salon from Campagne Décoration. I love the elegant simplicity…and just look at that fabulous floor…je l’adore!

campagne chicLook closely…do you notice anything about this one from Le Journal des Femmes ? While we are working so hard to find or create authentic looking grain sack pillows complete with lots of French writing…their version is simple…and in English! lol Love the wall of cabinets…and such a pretty color!

tablescape This tablescape for Réveillon or Christmas Eve dinner made my heart stop! I have studied every inch of it! I love those topiaries in pots on the mantel and I want those chairs! lol You’ll find it in Arts & Décoration.

emag This is a great example of what the French call campagne (country) chic…their version of shabby chic! Look at those fabulous chairs and that cherub medallion on the wall! I found this in e mag Déco. Just click on this link to find a treasure trove of photos of this mas (farmhouse) near Aix in Provence!
jardinetmaison The plate lover in me is fascinated by this kitchen! I want to get into that hutch and check out their plates!! lol And look…there on the top shelf…some of those lionhead soup bowls I have been wanting! You can see more in  Mon Jardin & Ma Maison.

campagne decoration This kitchen reminds me of the one in the apartment where we stayed during my retirement trip to Provence! Ahhhh! See more of this lovely Provençal home in Campagne Décoration.

emag2 And look at those wonderful floors and those fabulous chairs! Hmmm…is my chair addiction showing? This one is also from e mag Déco.

emag1 I love the paint treatment on the walls…and check out that fabulous console table! You can see more of this home…er…château in e mag Déco.

emag3 Here’s a simple yet elegant chambre! And check out that mirror! Once again, see more at e mag Déco.

campagne decoration2Could you curl up in this reading nook on a rainy day…with a cup of thé and a madeleine? Check out this château at Campagne Décoration.

arts et decoration In fact, you can often find a virtual tour of a château in these magazines, such as this one that belonged to Madame de Staël…who is often called the first modern woman! It can be found at Art & Décoration.

Paris shop And what trip to France would be complete without doing a little shopping in Paris? This shop and more out of the way places in Paris can be found in Campagne Décoration. Hmmm…I am noting the address of this one! What excuse can I use to get my 10 year old grandson to agree to a stop at this one during our Paris trip this summer? Maybe they sell gargoyles!

  17. Lovely. I love the uncluttered nature of magazine photos. They are so restful with no radio and TV blazing.. just a chaise to rest on and some books to read with a pillow and cozy throw. Heaven!

  19. Debbie, Oh, my... the candle light Christmas eve dinner photo is magical! Wouldn't you love to have dinner there on Christmas eve?
    Also the reading nook caught my attention with the "cord cozies" on the lamps. So much nicer than bare cords showing. The photo of the shop front makes me wish it were here. Oh, look at that little chair with the rose colored seat!

  32. Debbie! I have missed you, my friend, and I am trying to visit while my time holds out on the server I'm using. I could move into any of these houses. I love English and French country... both elegant and a little shabby which I love.

    How are you??? I hope well. I wanted to be sure and get by to wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope to be back to regular blogging in the not too distant future. I am dealing with workmen, have had them in two houses. Can we say, "Cuckoo???" LOL!

    XO,

  53. I am so drooling over these magazines. So gorgeous it's unbelievable. The French really know how to decorate. In fact, I think they have elevated to art of living to a whole new (old) beautiful standard.
