The Real Thing

French country has been  a popular decorating style for a number of years now.  With its understated simplicity and warmth it is easy to live with and can be interpreted in many ways.  When I think of the real thing, however, I return to this wonderful house in Provence which we called home for a month.

  12. Looks magical and I love the tree trunk supporting the bathroom sink!

  13. Wonderful house…beautiful restful colours. Love the white covers on the chairs…ready for me to spill my wine or black coffee! We arrived in France with a great deal of white things…we had never seen fly shit in our lives but soon our white things were covered in black dots. The house is very like our way of living except that you could fit our house into yours about 3 or 4 times:)

    1. Lucky us….we missed the fly shit!

  14. It looks very cozy and welcoming! 🙂 What a lovely house.

  15. It looks wonderful, but I don’t think I could live permanently with that style.

    1. For a month, it was great though we did miss our bathroom!
