Can't decide which light to buy that would really shine over your dining room table? Why not look to Paris for inspiration? This French style Trio of Paris ceiling lights with fluted glass would look stunning. I love the idea of having three lights instead of one over my dining table and I could always serve a trio of desserts instead of one! Looking for other ideas? Why not take a look at my selection of gorgeous French style lighting?

How can I let this gorgeous wallpaper pass me by? It's the Rose Damask Paper Lace - Embossed Vinyl Wallcovering As Featured In Sex And The City 2 in Carrie's hotel boudoir. I have decided that it will be perfect in the bedroom. It has just the right colours that I have been looking for - black and silver - and up to the minute chic style. I've cleared the room of furniture and prepared the walls ready to begin the transformation. Now it would look stunning as a feature headboard but then again if I decorate the wall surrounding the fireplace it would look fabulous. What do you think I should do?

This French style reproduction mirror from Ayers And Graces is so enormous that I couldn't fit it all on one page! But oh look at the part that you can see...antiqued silver gilt, wooden construction with gesso detailing and quality bevelled edge glass. At approx 98" x 74". (8ft 2" x 6ft 2" or 245cm x 185cm) and with a frame width of approx 7 inches wide and 4 inches deep, it is not for the faint hearted. But if you are looking for something a little on the big side then it certainly must be worth looking into the rest of this lovely mirror!

|Pink musk rose in faux water|
|Amour French linen cushions|
|Porcelaine roses candle sconce|
The rose. Such a beautiful flower. I found these gorgeous rose themed items at An Angel At My Table. A pink musk rose with a sprig of gelder rose in faux water, amour French linen cushions (the design has been taken from a French archive design) and a candle sconce with porcelaine roses and a brass lily. This company has a fabulous collection of English and French furniture and accessories. I especially love the Louis XVI sofas. Why not pop over and take a look www.anangelatmytable.com

I love scented candles. They are a great present to give to someone you care about, a great present to receive and a great present to give to yourself! This Diptyque Pomander candle is a firm favourite with everyone that I know.

|Late 19th Century French bedroom chairs in old paint|
|Louis-Philippe armchair - deeply buttoned in linen. C1840|
|Pair of well carved late 19th Century French fauteuils|
I have chosen these five gorgeous French chairs to highlight just some of the beautiful things that can be found at Lorfords Antiques. I was looking for just one item of French furniture to write about but was totally spoilt for choice! Should I have chosen the 19th Century Louis XV bureau plat, the 18th Century French dropleaf farmhouse table or the brass framed French bistro mirror? But then again I do love these chairs. The trouble is that I want them all!
