behind the facade
hi guys, happy friday! the weekend is just about to start, full of infinite possibility. i plan to enjoy it took my first chunk and went thru some places my sister in law sent for me to look over. she wants to go to provence this summer with my parents. it’s beyond exciting and i never really indulged in looking through what’s available to rent but once i started it was like pandora’s box!
these images are all from one site, in one region, purefrance.com/provence-cote-azur. i could barely make it through this section and can only imagine what lies behind some of the other links i’ve yet to click.
suffice it to say i’m only too happy help hunt for the house but she’s pretty good at knowing what she wants. first and foremost is a pool for the kids.
what struck me about most of the houses and the grounds were how simple and opulent they were at the same time.
as some of you mentioned the other day, the negative space becomes its own thing
a little landscaping
of course gorgeous architecture doesn’t hurt
but somehow they’re still super simple
the lighter ones are just as pretty and inviting as the over the top
i’m not really a pool person but i ohh la la i can get into these!
so we’ll be there in august. if you’re going to be there let me know. we’ll be shopping the antiques markets and i hope to meet with some of my blog friends in the area.
jean’s second requirement is a good kitchen.
and outdoor dining area
of course i’m all about the bedrooms
i like how the decor is paris taken down a few notches
casual and relaxed, a mix of old and a little new
if you get a chance i recommend surfing on over to the website cause this is the tip of the iceberg, i don’t know, it was like fresh air for me
of course i’m just thrilled it’s happening and i’d be happy staying in the tree house! well, i do have to shut it down now so i’ll bid adieu and hopefully see you over the weekend. have a great night!
