happy monday everyone! today i have some more of the gorgeous interiors from a country home in france – in may ways this space is exactly what you would expect to find in a small village in the heart of french farmland – but further exploration reveals that this house has a lovely balance between the expected and the unexpected – between traditional/classic farmhouse decor and a totally modern sensibility! – i hope that you are able to find inspiration and comfort as you view this post, as thats what i experienced while in this space.
one thing i particularly love is that the wood in the house has many different depths of color and texture. i normally don’t fall for light wood, but in this case i think it brings a sense of modern rustic to the space – and another interesting thing about this wood im told is that it never really ages – it is not treated or stained to look like this, but it retains a light fresh milled look to it – very unusual dont you think?
how amazing is this table – it anchors the center of this very open floor plan and is beautiful just as a focal point – not even considering the kicking dinner parties you could have tucked away up here – dining on wine, cheese and rabbit pate
love love love this old metal tub – which now stores extra linens and pillows for the house – an the open case clock hanging casually on the wall behind it – i usually find clocks like this pretty stuffy but this one is so cool looking – ill be keeping my eye out for something similar i have a great spot in my apt for one!
hummm… doesnt this bottle lamp look familiar – looks like it was just as stylish 30 years ago!
im a total sucker for impromptu still lifes! the light here was just too good to pass up!
