I have to confess I am just not an autumn colors girl. There, I said it. Black & orange, black & brown, burnt orange & brown, rust & olive. Not only do I have crunchy dark autumn to deal with, but now Halloween is upon us with its very restricted palette:)
Which brings me to this lovely respite at Campagne Francaise: could there be a lighter, lovelier, springier or more feminine interpretation of our beloved Provencal* style than this? Are you with me?
like a watercolor, this living room is ready for teatime

dining room bathed in sunlight; Pierre Frey linen at the windows,
table found at the flea market at l'Isle sur la Sorgue then covered
with a sheet of zinc (love it!!)
soft and intimate atmosphere created by grey tones with white
and brightened with raspberry. upholstery by Pacific Compagnie
a little theatrical vignette of a screen
and a lampshade which
evoke the spirit of Venice and the 18th C.
love this original fireplace from the 30's in chinoiserie style;
Japanese tea cloth on the wall, Asian lamps with lavender shades and raku,
and that black chair against the almond green..fabulous!
