anything french...my new fascination.

so right now, i cannot get enough of french style, from fashion, to architecture, to interiors...everything french. there is just something terribly romantic, soft, sexy, luxurious and classic about french style.

image here.

don't these adorable clutches just seem so french? i adore these especially for spring. from garden club on etsy, via cardinal the color.

vibrant haute couture, christian lacroix dress, via cardinal the color.
this is a fabulous french site called "the collection", you'll LOVE it!

these next 5 lovely scenes via european antique market.

this light and airy space from fresh home.

towards spring, i'm feeling the need to lighten things up, with light paints, a bit of glam and polish, flowers, frills and of course a bit of france. i'm very much still an eclectic designer. i wouldn't want my whole house, or even an entire room, all in one style, french or not. but elements of french haute interiors are super fun. big chunky furniture, gilt mirrors, flowery patterns and vintage furniture and lighting. if i'm in france any time soon, it will be off to those fabulous flee markets i hear so much about.
so does french style move you? are you drawn to it in any way? tell me your french thoughts! enjoy! :)

Robin - the french just do it better (and that applies to more than one thing)
