The French House in the media


Quite the thrill to be featured in the November 2016 edition of Country Style magazine! The French House did not stop at the front cover but continued over six pages inside! The styling by Tess Newman-Morris and photography by Lisa Cohen is nothing short of exquisite. Journalist Virginia Imhoff’s adds the words behind the photographs, describing the journey to create our slice of provincial France.  It will be hard to top this one!

Postcards chose us to feature in their March 6 episode, alongside one of our favourite stores in Daylesford, Manteau Noir. We were quite literally blown away when Rebecca Judd posted a photo on her standing in our kitchen on her Instagram account, only connecting us with about half a million followers! Here’s the link to the episode (scroll down until you see our segment):
