I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend!
For me, this weekend was packed with many activities: work, photoshoot and styling days, dinners, new connections, and plenty of fun! It was just the sort of weekend I really needed to re-charge my battery and gain new inspiration. I find that because I primarily work from home, I (a) need to live comfortably and feel inspired in my space, but (b) once in awhile, need to get out and explore other places for a fresh view. But whether or not you work from home, your home ought to be your place of comfort...a place that welcomes you no matter how you feel, what kind of day you've had, or who comes to visit...
I find this home, located in St. Tropez, to be chalk full of just that! From the forgiving hardwood floors to the beautifully beamed ceilings, this neutral nest nestles and comforts its inhabitants. Inspired by the coleur de terre, meaning color of the earth/the land, it exudes serenity and a feeling of calm—don't you think?
While flipping through this 2004 issue of Coté Sud, what caught my attention about this home was not only the comfort of it all, but the classic ease of the decor, the natural flow of space, and the great details throughout...such as the outdoor living area, the large, rustic table that houses the t.v, (I don't know about you, but I prefer this a great deal more than the average built-in) the glass sliding door to/from the kitchen, and the divided sink areas, above. In this place, waking up in the morning, throwing open the puddled drapes, and heading to the bathroom for a quick morning shower wouldn't seem all that daunting, would it?
