Pleasing to the Senses








Olive branches, stone, wash, linen, wood, paper, to name a few.

A soft palette of creams, beige, and bits of metallic, makes for an inviting and soothing entrance. Beyond that, see the beautiful, patinaed stone flooring that feels so cool and refreshing to the foot, so appealing to the eye, and wonderful to the touch...Wouldn't it be nice to come home to? Soft, grainy linens, perfect for sleep, soothing bath products from Coté Bastide, perfect for baths, and paper, just to admire...I love a good mix of surfaces, the clean lined against the heavily textured, the old, weathered and worn. Bits of olive leaves complete the look, and add a shimmer of life to the space. I would love to spend a relaxing weekend here, wouldn't you? Are you a texture person, also?

  6. Beautiful images (as always) Sarah. Hard to not want to live in that house. I can almost smell the fresh and well ironed sheets. Sigh....

  9. White linens... nothing better than getting into a bed with white linens after a hot bath/shower (and freshly shaved/moisturized legs!!). It's like sleeping on a cream puff!
