About Me

 
French Gray's founder Tracy Patten has always had a great passion and enthusiasm for period homes and vintage furniture, particularly French style distressed vintage furniture. Having undertaken the huge project that is currently her home she felt the time had come to direct her creative talents into a new venture, something that combined her love of period properties with her love for interior design.     

 

It was possibly serendipity itself that led Tracy to think about the amount of furniture that was being discarded and felt that it was such a travesty as vintage pieces are often so much better made than their modern counterparts.

 

French Gray: Serendipity itself

 

Tracy enrolled upon a course held by Annie Sloan, who makes the chalk paint, in how to paint furniture in a French style and then with that knowledge began to incorporate her own individual style and techniques to the pieces she worked on. 

 

Seeing the transformation of uninspiring vintage furniture morph into freshly elegant pieces gives Tracy such a sense of fulfilment, knowing that these pieces will go on to be loved and enjoyed for many more years to come.

Tracy has a workshop at her home in the beautiful countryside near the pretty market town of Bampton in Devon. Tracy's workshop isn't a shop but if you would like to visit and see the pieces she has for sale please contact her to arrange a mutually convenient time.
