Provence living room

Another one of my very favorite images…I was surprised to realize that

its from the same home as the lit à la polonaise in the previous post…

but from a different source…

sofa detail

Love the fawn tones of the linen…

the heavy simplicity of fabric and form…

Provence living room with interesting ceiling

Furniture in the room a blend of Italian and Provençal furniture from 18th and

19th century. Notice the distinctive architectural elements:  baroque styled

doorway and bookcase, the unique plaster arched ceiling supported by beams.

The doorway feature was modeled after the 18th century Venetian bookcase…

providing a lovely symmetry, height and color to either side of the fireplace…

garden elements

More garden elements inside add to the informal ease of the space…

Antique Biot pot… originally used to store olive oil…here…a pair of

glass cloches on twin tables behind couch…Venetian gondolier lantern…
