French Villa

| Posted in Period Living |

This wonderful French villa is owned by a very good friends of mine – Janet and Ken Hamilton. 


It nestles in the wonderfully named medieval village of St Paul de Vence in Provence. And what a pleasure it was to stay there when doing this photoshoot - not really like work at all!

I want to show you the rest of this fabulous home in our Blog – but just for now, I picked this image to show simple Provencal styling at its best – and also the impact of symmetry.

Janet and Ken like to roll up their sleeves when it comes to creating a home and picked up much of the villa furniture in local Brocante’s before Ken restored the fabulous mirror and painted the table and chairs in Farrow and Ball ‘Downpipe’. What do you think of the balance and sense of symmetry... I reckon the gorgeous old plant stands and ferns add the perfect finishing touch.
