Flamant at Beadboard Upcountry

Last weekend, Tall Husband and I visited Beadboard UpCountry, the chic Euro-country boutique that's nestled in a beautifully restored bank building in historic Brenham, Texas. The owners, Peter and Maryanne, recently returned from a buying trip to Paris. In addition to wonderful items for the home, they now have limited editions of European design books. Who could resist such beautiful books? Not I! Featured here are a few shots of one of the books: "Flamant Home Interiors: Here and Elsewhere" (hardcover.)  Text by Raoul Buyle and Photography by Bart Van Leuven with English translation by Martin Lambert. (Amazon didn't have this book available when I checked this morning.)

If you aren't familiar with Flamant, it is a fabulous European company that sells lifestyle. One can walk into the Flamant store in Paris and walk out with paint, tableware, fresh flowers, furniture, name it; if it's chic and for the home or garden, Flamant has it. Whether you live in a house in Brussels, a Houston loft or a bastide in the south of France, they've got your style, which they describe as bourgeois-bohemian.

Note: Beadboard UpCountry has recently added contemporary designs that blend so well with their antiques and reproduction European style. Also, they are going green with their various clean-burning candles and decorative items made from recycled paper and metal.


  1. Hello, Annie! This all looks so familiar! I have Flamant at Copper Strawberry, and I import their wonderful aesthetic for the U.S. and Canada. I have been to this post many times!
    Kind regards,
