I don’t know how it started, this obsession with all things French . . .
It could be the excellence of French craftsmen or the inherent ability of every French person to create rooms that make your heart pound. Perhaps it is the color palette of the country, colors that gently remind me of beautiful morning skies in a delicious dream.
This last weekend I had the opportunity to take a trip to the wonderful Chateau Sonoma. This store imports most of its inventory from France. It can satisfy the hunger for all things French.
The photos below do not do justice to this inspiring place.
This display caught my attention. I loved the depth of the reflection in the mirror. It was as if layers and layers of beauty were opening upon another magical room in a world beyond.
This architectural piece was gorgeous in person. And the painted French metal bed next to it was creatively decorated with branches, lights, and paper flowers.
Along a wall near the back of the store were these amazing French menus. They were displayed in creamy white mattes. I won’t tell you how long I spent admiring all the different menus, but let me just say that my hubby is a saint.
Wishing you a Beautiful Weekend!
