bohemian beauty.

I love the undone quality of this villa. A holiday villa, it lacks pretension and exudes character – exactly how a holiday home should be.

Vernacular elements – white washed walls, shuttered windows and beamed ceilings – set the scene. Then inside, a charming mix of provincial, art deco and midcentury pieces and objet have been brought together. With the exception of the sofa and Bouroullec armchair and ottoman, everything has been sourced second hand. From the brocantes of Paris, to local flea markets and antique shops, an array of wonderful pieces cohabit – pieces by Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Guariche (chairs and lighting), and Eero Saarinen Tulip chairs and tables.


I could happily spend my summer here; what about you?

    Gorgeous! Love this decoration and this photographs. The style is fresh and simple, but so stylish. I don’t like the stairs (seems something I would fall from… I won’t trust them) and Mao’s portrait (I feel like its out of place).
    I would LOVE to be there.

      it’s the simplicity that works so well, doesn’t it, and each piece works alone as well as together. I love the groupings of things. so glad you like it too, and lovely to have your comments. Jane

    This type of decor makes a very relaxing atmosphere for a holiday,,uncluttered and apparently effortless. But so much trouble put in to finding the right piece of furniture or ornament.
