Cove ceiling, limewashed walls, antique French linen in Provence farmhouse.

Saint Tropez home of French interior designer Jacqueline Morabito

as featured in the December 2003 Maison Cote Sud…

A timeless look, spare and neutral with strong architectural bones,

lime washed walls and rough beams, couches slip covered with French linen,

scant color reserved for extraordinary finds like antique painted screen.

Love the unfinished rough tablecloth and simple Gustavian chairs.

Simple curtains loosely strung across the window.

When more light is desired, she simply unfixes one side and lets the canvas drape.

I wonder if she’s changed the coffee table….

What would you switch out…what color would you paint the walls?

How would you dress the mantle?

This looks like the home of a hunter gatherer…

flea market frames and urns, grasses and foliage from the yard or long walks…

curtains hung to one side of the sun filled tall windows…
