A French-Inspired Garden and Home by Judith Stringham

Romantic French Country Pink Peonies

Sunday, June 30, 2019


Romantic French country pink peonies are beloved early summer perennials that captivate gardeners, florists, brides, and flower lovers everywhere. With their overblown, blousy blooms, peonies add romance to any setting, including my post and beam French-inspired American country house.

Peonies are so well-loved and popular they are sold in local grocery stores which means those of us whose gardens do not include peonies can still enjoy them as bouquets in our homes.

Three large bouquets of peonies in my French-inspired country kitchen fill the room with their fragrance. 

Post-and-beam construction with a white limestone wall could be a house in Provence, France, but instead is a house in the countryside just minutes from the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas metroplex.

In addition to the house's architecture, French country style comes from a large gold-framed print of Ch√Ęteau de Chenonceau on the stone wall and a small white rectangular framed print of details of Pont Alexander III (bridge over the Seine) in Paris, France.

And, the pink peonies provide the finishing touch for French Country living.

The kitchen merges with the living room through an eight-foot wide opening which allows the peonies to be enjoyed from the living room also.

The peonies are beautiful from every angle in the house. 

When you come through the front door into the house, you see straight to the trees in the backyard through the sunspace windows. The outside comes inside through the sunspace breakfast area of the kitchen.

Remember... 

French Country is more than a

French Country is also a lifestyle that 
elevates the ordinary to the extraordinary. 

Romantic pink peonies ...
