Beautiful traditional inspiration from France today. Clockwise, from top left: French Home by Josephine Ryan, Hilary Robertson and Claire Richardson, Ryland Peters and Small; The Art of French Country Living by Jean Naudin and Colette Gouvion, Hachette Illustrated; A French Country Home: Style and Entertaining by Jocelyne Sibuet, Catherine Deydier Guillaume De Laubier, Flammarion; Really Rural by Marie-France Boyer, Thames and Hudson.
I've just discovered the wonderful Passementerie blog, and I'm now wishing I could be spending my afternoon in a warm Paris café, dreamily watching the world go by. For now, though, it's back outside into the Canadian cold and snow ... brrrrr!
A country look in a Paris home. The chairs were originally from a Chinese school.
Minimalist dining. Sycamore benches and tables by John Pawson, lamp by Philippe Starck.
Groovy 1960's style dining in a converted warehouse space.
