2164 32Good evening! It’s Amy from @maisondemings again! Being featured in the specialty issue French Cottage produced by @thecottagejournal was such an honor! I fell in love with French style when my husband and I were married in Provence and it is what continues to inspire us. Our tagline is “American Heritage, Provencal Elegance.” We feel like our style is a combination of our passion for the timeless elegance of the Cote d'Azure with the rugged simplicity of rural America. Be sure to check out @thecottagejournal’s stories where I am sharing more of our farm and inspiration. Thanks for letting me take over!
1713 18This is Amy from @maisondemings and I’m taking over @thecottagejournal’s IG feed today. When we were renovating our 1960’s home last year, we focused on the kitchen. We love entertaining and knew we would spend so much time in here as a family. We painted our cabinets and added French charm with a farmhouse sink, custom island, vintage chandelier and marble backsplash. My husband also made this French inspired cheese safe for me It is one of my favorite pieces that I know I’ll keep forever. I’m sharing the before of our kitchen in stories – it is such a transformation and I hope you will check it out!

2993 36Bonjour! Amy here from the blog and Instagram @maisondemings! I’m so excited to be taking over @thecottagejournal’s IG tomorrow. I had the honor of being featured in their specialty magazine, French Cottage, which hit newsstands about 3 weeks ago. This image is from our most recent trip to Provence. My husband and I love all things French and the name of our blog, Maison de Mings, is actually French for “House of Mings.” We live in rural America, but are always looking for ways to bring a bit of France to our country life ☺️I hope you will follow along tomorrow for some home décor inspiration! In stories, I’ll also be sharing some fun before/after’s of our recent renovation projects and some pretty pie baking tips. Au Revoir!
