My name is Cynthia and I love interior design, architecture, antiques, all things vintage, all things British (a tried and true Anglophile), a love of things that are time worn and hold secrets of days gone by. I love animals and try to respect their place in our world. I enjoying talking about the most beautiful places in the world, some exotic, some in our own neck of the woods. I love family and friends, music and movies. And most importantly, I love talking about these things with a daily dose of humor because I love to laugh and we all deserve to. So come on...let's go for a stroll.

A Time To Share - Welcome Guest Blogger, Design Shuffle

It is the holidays, and Cynthia is tired! Just when I thought I wouldn't get a beautiful post together for you great readers out there, the girls at Design Shuffle reached out to me in the nick of time. So without further adieu, enjoy!

Hi, my name is Joanna, and I am a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, the go-to source for all things interior design. I spend my days writing about design topics and sharing inspired decorating ideas. What’s not to love about looking at beautiful images like those below all day? Thanks to A Love of the Past for letting me share!
We’ve been having a love affair lately with all things French. From pastel-hued macaroons on the table to gorgeous inspired rooms, the French know how to create a warm and inviting space with just a hint of formality. Take a look at the lovely French-inspired spaces we found in our travels around the web. Enjoy!
French Decor
An ornately carved upholstered headboard is the center of attention in this very French bedroom.

Roses and stripes are the order of the day in this feminine room. The big stripe on the chaise gives it a flirty look.
French Decor
A canopied bed with upholstered headboard gives this bedroom design its stately appearance. Two identical bedside cabinets flank the bed and add to the room’s formal tone.
French Decor
This lovely bath is a decadent example of over-the-top luxury. A large soaking tub beckons us to take a dip. Here, overnight guests definitely get a taste of "oh, so French" style!

Another example of luxury, this bath promises a spa-like bathing experience. Just imagine having this space all to yourself.
French Decor
A humble French farmhouse is full of bathroom design ideas and plays host to a casual bathroom with a cast iron tub and a natural stone vessel sink.
French Decor
This French provincial kitchen is as beautiful as it is welcoming. Small stools invite family and friends to take a seat while the cook works culinary magic. This room inspires many interior design ideas.
French Decor
A very French living space is as formal as it is lovely. The sensuous curves of the ornately carved furnishings play off the formality of the rest of the room. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

Why are beds so grand? They are as if queens and kings are the ones who will use. I like the old-looking furniture yet there is class.
