Survey says...

This was a fun survey!  Thanks to all who participated! Many responders had multiple design styles, which I love. I can't decide on one style myself. Too many things appeal to me.

So here are the results for around the country.

24% Traditional              
9%   Tuscan                    
29% French Country
20% Modern Country
27% Farmhouse/Rustic
29% Cottage
7%   Coastal/Beach
4%   Shabby Chic
4%   Romantic
2%   Modern/Minimalist
2%   Botanical
2%   Victorian
2%   Eclectic

The most popular were Cottage and French Country with Farmhouse/Rustic a close second.
Not Surprising!

Rustic Art

I've always loved photography and have been gradually incorporating it into my shop offerings. I have a ton of photos on file from floral, landscape and our trip to France.

Ranunculus - Paris Flower Market

It's been exciting to experiment with these photos in photoshop - adding effects and textures.

Red Market Pear

A collection of my photos have been professionally printed on canvas and then I mount them on wood and a frame we make in our shop.

Faded Pink Rose

Stained, painted and distressed, they are a great addition to your farmhouse decor.

Charolais Cow, France

French Cottage - Semur-en-Auxois
They are currently featured in a 5x5 canvas size with a 7 1/2" square frame.  Besides the printing (in the US), these are handmade by us in the US in our NY studio :) Discounts for multiples will apply!
Find them on our website HERE or Etsy shop HERE.
