In the dining room of this Tulsa home, the original plasterwork sets an elegant tone. Painted panels above the doors add French country charm that is enhanced by the bespoke gilded cornices on the window treatments.
Presided over by an imposing buffet, the dining room has an antique French farm table and candlelit chandelier. Wallpaper made to mimic barn siding is the perfect rustic complement to the antique blue painted chairs and buffet in this kitchen. See more of the same kitchen in the next slide.
The backsplash is an antique fireback found at the Paris flea market. In the breakfast room, a banquette utilizes the area near the windows.

An antique tole chandelier illuminates the space while garden prints decorate the walls. Before a trip to England, the owner of this home asked Faudree what she should buy for the house.
Her collection now adorns the walls of the guest bedroom. The blue-and-white toile on the chairs and ottoman is a beautiful complement to the blue-grey walls and the gingham draperies. White leather wing chairs look stately in the master bedroom. Striped silk pillows that match the window treatments soften the look. Faudree often adds timeless grace to a room with blooming plants or cut flowers. Faudree placed his signature touch on the house with the toile in this bedroom.
Here, the fabric drapes extravagantly from a Louis XVI-style bed. The highlight of the small guest bedroom is the lit clos enclosed bed that is wrapped like a gift box in red toile. Curtains draw to create a cozy little nook. Walls in the master bedroom are painted green to play up the country feeling, while an antique light fixture adds wholesome charm. In the master bedroom, an oversized wing chair in blue toile is pulled up next to the fireplace. Faudree says, "The mix in the girl's bedroom shown here is more about pattern than collectibles.
Pink toile on the little chair and bed curtains mixes with stripes on the wall, a hand-painted floral design on the commode, and florals on the lamp and lampshade. Start with a pivotal fabric, then mix other patterns of different scales from the same color family. An old-time tub and the portraits hung above it give this bath a hint of frontier flair.
