Online shop owner Tracey Leber’s motto of “Seeking life’s inspirations” is more than just a theme for her blog. It’s a philosophy that carries her on regular trips to France, where she strolls the flea markets and antiques shops of Paris, Provence and Normandy seeking treasures for her home-decor store, FrenchLarkspur.com.
The store’s virtual shelves showcase items such as well-loved table linens, sheet music, century-old apothecary bottles and beautifully hand-scripted letters. She keeps a few special pieces for her headquarters in the Chicago-area home she shares with husband Steve and their three children. She layered on age in her eight-year-old home using crown molding, antique chandeliers, architectural salvage, family heirlooms and a welcoming palette that’s mostly white, which serves as a backdrop to a melding of Scandinavian and French styles. “I like the fact that vintage items make my home more unique,” Tracey says.
