drape detail

You can almost feel the weight of the old linen in this photo…

Voluminous swags casting from the ciel de lit

to form a lit à la polonaise

the tone on tone drapes caught in shadowy folds…

Bedding detail

Silky velvet quilt, casual striped, plain linen, arabesque patterned pillows…

piled on classic tufted linen French mattress…

worn limestone floor and faded fresco…


Lit a la polonaise

Would love to lift the master bedroom ceiling a few feet and

throw this up top…love that its neutral, rough, unshiny…

I know you’ve all seen this image but I thought you’d like to get a closer look…

Provence entryway

Perfection….

The arch of thick limestone walls in the hallowed entry hall of an

17th-18th century Provençal farmhouse…littered tools

of a French country life juxtaposed with antique sconces

and lantern, an incredible limestone floor…
