Hello, my name is Margot.

Welcome to my journal of stories about decorating and design, personal style and designing a creative career in the digital era. Oh, and there'll be some chocolate and gin, too.

30 Times a Room Was Made Better By This Awesome Element

30 Times a Room Was Made Better By This Awesome Element

Some designers say every room needs a bit of black. I agree with that wholeheartedly but in particular when that black comes in the form of a brindle French bulldog. But even a fawn or cream or pied Frenchie absolutely makes a room in my books. These little bat-eared clowns with there snorts and snores and cuddles and gremlin-like charm fill me with the warm fuzzies. One in particular has been a holder of my heart for close to 15 years. So, in honour of the almighty Frenchie I bring you this feature on the very best element for any room.

Sources: I swore I would never do this as a blogger, but here's the deal: I can't do the copying and pasting and linking to every source shown here because, well, just because. I know, I suck. Most images can be found on my Frenchies Pinterest board. Click here and you can then click through the pin to get the source. If you don't find the image there then it's one of my own images.
