Take a little shabby, a soupçon of French country and a touch of cottage and you have Courtney Allison's style. Based in California's wine country, she loves the unexpected mix of rustic and elegant through romantic florals, vintage fabrics and a lot of neutral colors. Courtney is a blogger, the former editor of Romantic Homes Magazine, and the author of her first book, newly-released "French Country Cottage".

Belgrave Roll Top Desk

With nooks and crannies and lots of little drawers for tucking treasures into - this vintage-inspired, dainty roll-top desk is perfection in a small space. There’s enough room on the pullout desk for writing - and a locking drawer - not to mention a roll-down cover to tuck everything neatly out of sight when not in use. This desk is big on charm but small in size which makes it perfect for an attic room or hallway where space is at a premium. My favorite things might be rustic vintage pine and delightful finish - and all of those cute little cubbies and drawers.

Emil Antique Leaner Mirror

Mirrors are always perfect pieces to add to a room. They add depth, reflect light and can be tucked into the darkest of corners and bring a bit of pizzazz. The thing I love about it is that rustic, vintage industrial vibe. It's perfect for mixing with something more refined or enjoying in a beautiful, vintage-inspired space.

Avignon Tufted Back Chair

Comfort is key when choosing a piece such as a chair or sofa. And second to nothing is style. I love something petite and charming and am a huge fan of this dainty tufted chair. Tucked by the fireplace, in the corner or paired in a seating group, it is comfy and beautiful in a living room or bedroom.

Ticking Stripe Pillowcase Pair

Vintage-inspired ticking pillowcases are sweet for adding that feeling of nostalgia to your room. I love the dainty crocheted edging and old-style monogram embroidery. They remind me of something I would find at a flea market. And available in two colors, these are perfect for adding to a guest bedroom, cozy attic room or even tucking into your own bed stylings.

Majestic on the Road Giclée

When I was a little girl, I loved taking riding lessons and dreamed of being a cowgirl one day. I have always been enamored with vintage equestrian artwork - those old moody paintings with charming silhouettes of horses. I love this one above the fireplace and also on the wall by the stairs.

Andalucia Rug

A rug adds so much texture and dimension to a room - and for me, vintage rugs grab my heart and run away with it. So this vintage-inspired rug had me at "hello". With soft muted tones and vintage design, it is perfect for adding warmth underfoot and a whole lot of beautiful subtle vintage inspired style.

Rennes Embroidered Pillow

I love anything that is detailed but not over the top. This pillow is an absolute dream. The delicate embroidery and details add warmth and texture, while the color is neutral making it a perfect addition in any room.

Rive Gauche 3 Drawer Chest

I fell in love with the French country sensibilities of this piece the minute I saw it. An abundance of space in the roomy drawers and curves galore create a beautiful focal point - and that hand-rubbed paint finish is perfection on a piece that looks like it is 150 years old. I adore it doubling as a nightstand or as a sideboard or chest in a room.
