These are answers to the questions I frequently receive through contact notes and emails. If you do not find answers to your questions, shoot me an email at contact[at]frenchbydesignblog[dot]com or send me a note through the contact page.


  • What is your shop policy?

The shop policy is available here. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send us a note at contact@frenchbydesignblog.com. We are here to help!


  • Can I guest post on your blog and add a commercial link?

No, you cannot and never will be able to. Sponsored posts are clearly identified as such and sponsoring opportunities are available on this blog. However, I do not accept “sponsored guest posts” also known as “ghost-writer” posts.

I will not answer guest post writers’ requests and appreciate your understanding about this.


  • Can I repost your picture?

Yes, you can, as long as it’s NOT for commercial purposes and you link back to the frenchbydesignblog.com site. If you need to use more than 1 (one) French By Design copyrighted picture*, please send me a contact note so we can discuss usage details.

* For any commercial use of ANY of my pictures, please send me a contact note. Additional commercial usage fees will apply.


  • Can I send you products for review?

Yes, you can, but there is no guarantee of any sort that I will be blogging about your product. I only blog about products I like and always favor unique content in general. My rule is simple : if I can’t recommend a product to my personal friends, I won’t recommend it to my readers either.

Products gifted or provided for free to French By Design for review are noted with a c/o (courtesy of) mention at the bottom of the post. French By Design does not accept monetary payment for such posts, and any post that is sponsored [i.e where I received a monetary compensation] will be clearly noted as such.

Contact me for submissions at contact[at]frenchbydesignblog[dot]com.


  • Do you make money with links or brands you post about?

Yes, I do, and get paid occasionally with affiliates’ commissions and by brands through sponsored posts.

When I accept to do a sponsored post, it will always clearly be mentioned, in an effort to be transparent. However, I choose very carefully the brands and companies I work with on this blog, and the products I blog about are pieces I’d have in my own interior. Again, back to my simple rule: if I can’t recommend a product to my personal friends or use it myself, I won’t recommend it to my readers either.


  • What camera do you use?

I use a Canon EOS Rebel T7i.


  • I don’t see my comment. Why was my comment deleted?

Comments deemed inappropriate, including general or self-promotional spam, untruths, offensive statements, profanity or comments unrelated to the post topic will be deleted.
