Fabulous and french.....

{all images from here}

As soon as I saw these images, I knew that I needed to share them. They come from a French Textiles house called Destombes, who manufacture the most amazing range of French fabrics.

Love the oh so French ticking which when mixed with solid colours looks so chic. I love gray and purple together.

This photo caught my eye as I adore the ticking and love the attention to detail. I have a thing about freshly picked roses at present and the use of the candelabras looks stunning.

I have a thing about cupboards which are painted different colours inside as I think that it adds a little mystery to the object. This started when I first saw the black secretaire with the bright pink interior on the grange website.

Wishing you all a fabulous week, I am still working on "what" is going "where" in the new kitchen so that Mr FF can start building.

A demain,

  5. Hi Leeann
    Beautiful fabrics.. and i love that cupboard in the last pic too... Love to have something like this for my linen but don't have the space... Love all the grey in these pics.. so soothing and elegant ... Have a great day and thanks for the lovely comment.. xx Julie

  6. This is so French ... you are so right. I'm in Paris now and you see similar designs and colors in the design shops.

  7. That daybed is just divine. Looks like the perfect place to curl up with a good book.

  8. Love purples and greys (colors of my library)...I could just lounge in that day bed and forget about the word...

  9. Love all of it, especially the sofa with the canopy and the cupboard painted a different colour inside. I think that I might just be using that idea...thanks for the inspiration. XXXX
