FRENCH ACCENTS-A love story for all things

I am thrilled to bring a very very special book to you today! It’s like a love story… a brilliant storybook filled with ethereal French inspired images about the love of French Farmhouse Style! FRENCH ACCENTS is one of the most visually beautiful books I’ve read. Full of sublime images and common sense decorating… now that’s a combination! Written by one of my very best blogging friends, Anita Joyce, it captures her enthusiasm for French styling and love of home. Let’s take a peek at Anita’s first BEST SELLER decor book!

FRENCH ACCENTS-A love story for all things

See what I mean?  The images are beyond beautiful and full of powdery blues and purples and dusty grey’s… Anita’s signature colors. 

You know Anita from her popular blog CEDAR HILL FARMHOUSE. Where she shares her French infused decor, great decorating ideas and Texas common sense!

Her book makes me long for a French Farmhouse! That chair makes me swoon!


FRENCH ACCENTS’ chapters define French decor, tells us the best places to shop for French pieces, gives us down-to-earth advice about antique furniture as well as an easy guide for slipcovering French furniture! She shows us how to paint and distress and create the look of time worn furniture and shows us how to make some other fun French inspired pieces!

Her decor topics include tablescapes, kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms, bedroom and even breathtaking outdoor spaces!

I’ll keep other chapter topics a secret for you to happily discover when you buy her book!


I read her book before it was published and knew she had a best seller on her hands… a stunning best seller! It was my privilege to write a review for her book. Here what I had to say about it…


You can purchase FRENCH ACCENTS on the sidebar of CEDAR HILL FARMHOUSE. Click HERE.

If you live near or are going to Round Top this year, you can see Anita there. She is speaking and has a booth chocked full of French delights and of course she will be signing copies of her book!

Anita, I am so proud of you and so blessed to call you my friend! I knew your book would be a smashing success!!!!
