Blanc En Blanc - Paris Interiors












Okay I admit I am a lover of all things French - fashion, fragrance, design, food, architecture, pastries, countryside ...the list goes on and on. What isn't there to love? This week I'm loving French interiors - I'm been lucky enough to stay with friends in some gorgeous Parisienne apartments complete with worn parquetry floors, high ceilings, wedding cake mouldings, wrough iron balconies, marble fireplaces and antique chandeliers. Furniture was a mix of old and new, antique and reproduction but the end results were always the same :- chic, stylish and effortless. The thing about French style is it's nonchalnce - nothing is too considered or too perfect. Prints are hung haphazardly or left sitting on the floor, collections of books and magazines are strewn around and odd collections of ornaments are grouped together. I need to loosen up a bit with my decorating style and  get a little more creative and a little less perfect!
