let’s get together


morning guys, happy wednesday.  i hope your week has been good so far.

the past couple days i’ve been putting the france trip together. there’s so much info it’s mind boggling. one country, one region, even one town can take a lifetime! since i’m going back in august i thought it would be fun to explore a bit more than i can do this month (it’s just a week), and thought maybe you’d like to go too if you’re free. i’m putting something together for somewhere between august 23 and sept 5th. more soon on that.

i took some of your great advice and will incorporate it into the itinerary. i’ll check out eze, beaulieu villefranche and st paul de-vence…anything else?

we’re meeting up with vicki monday, planning’s in the works with corey and melanie. ny friend kate married a frenchman and they live in nice. he happens to be an antiquing guru and she’s going to show us around the warehouses and haunts her hubby keeps under wraps. i also got in touch with another fantastic blogger who was at the roundup in paris about a year ago when we all met.

in the meantime i’m going through our shopping list. my client wants to keep it simple and live minimally here in her sweet retreat. below is the apartment:

and these were some of the images she sent for inspiration:

ok well it’s getting way late, not morning here anymore…have a great day!

    I really hope you will have permission to share your clients apartment once you are finished! It will be amazing! And, my heart wishes painfully, that I could be right on your heels as you go on the shopping adventures and then bring it all beautifully together!
