Helen Aumont Gives Us a Tour of Her Countryside Home | Pottery Barn


Where I Live
Helene Aumont Hello, my name is Helen Aumont and welcome to my home I’ve been here for fifteen years and the countryside
definitely was very appealing to me, it actually is very similar to Corsica, where I spent half of my childhood and the topography and the vegetation
is so similar, I just love the countryside. I’m a city girl, but I love to live in the country. what I loved was the old bones of the house, it really had charm and completely vernacular to this valley I think it will be a perfect place to raise a
family with young kids. My favorite room is actually the kitchen.
It has the function but it’s not an ultra modern kitchen, but it really
works and we can make a meal for sixteen people and make a small breakfast for four. I love my office inside the house because it’s a
very serene place where I’m still part of the house and still a little remote, and
I love the in this room and I love the colors we used for the walls and for the
draperies, it makes it really a very secluded area which is inside but outside of this world. We love to live on the veranda because of the California weather
which we are so lucky to have six months out of the year we basically live in this veranda, we have breakfast lunch dinners if it’s not too cold at night and the animals are, it’s their second home, and you are somehow inside the house but completely outside and protected
by those screen porch and you have such
a beautiful view of the garden. The master bedroom, because it is a large and it’s uh, a beautiful ambience for me, it’s uh a nice place to rest away from the busy world we live in. the concept of pottery barn is a great concept
everything is merchandise for you and it is at your fingertips, it’s all available, it’s color, by themes it’s just really clever, it’s hard to resist
in my family life is to be appreciative somehow of the beauty of imperfection. the beauty and the atmosphere of
a well-lived home where not everything needs to be perfect, and matching and being with the right nuances where sometimes the layering pieces catch your attention and you think oh, that’s odd, but it’s actually very
pleasing to the eye. Please visit www.potterybarn.com/whereilive

    @heleneherbinger Wow! Next question…What is a beautiful woman with a beautiful house and cat doing on You Tube? You should be sitting by the fire reading some Emerson or Whitman, or baking pies or crumpets, or tending the garden, or just sipping wine anywhere in your home or on the porch. lol Good God lady, you live a fantasy life. You Tube is so beneath you. I never expected you to post here. I'm truly honored. Thank you. Kiss Gravy for me.

    It's perfectly imperfect !! That's exactly how i also describe my style. All this nonsense that rooms have to flow. Flowing from one room to another every room matching . How bloody boring is that !!!

    The well-lived home is exactly the tradition of old New England families…warm, comfortable, elegant pieces that are allowed to show their age.

    That's right! "Odd, but, actually, very pleasing to the eyes"
    Beauty and elegance, really are found in simplicity!
