Love this bedroom....

{image from here}

I adore this bedroom designed by Nathalie Vingot Mei, a French interior decorator based in Aix en Provence.

Such a gorgeous chambre with everything that I love.....old floor tiles, toile de jouy bed coverings, hot air balloon and a fabulous antique basket.Tout est parfait!

A demain mes amis,

  1. Really gorgeous! So rustic! You can imagine french windows where the light is coming from, opening out onto an orchard! Bliss! Have a good week x

  2. I can see why you like it! I used to live in the South of France and can easily imagine the scent of lavender coming through the window and the sound of the cicadas and crickets.
    Take care

  3. Stunning Leeann and I so love that red fabric on the bed head... just beautiful. x

  4. oh me too! can just imagine how lovely it is, and probably smells like sunshine and lavender : )


  5. It's very sweet. I like the hot air balloon and the pretty fabrics the most :)

  6. I could move right in ...

    let's catch up!

  7. I love the little single bed tucked in the corner. How cozy.

  8. Red, red, red!!! Sweet and hot color. Perfect, full of style and chic! LOVE it!! Have a great week!!! Bela.

  9. Hi Leeann, I would like a bedroom like this for my children....That bed is a dream xx

  10. Hi Leeann,

    Such a sweet little bedroom here and I am sure that the wee child would be very happy here.
    I love the way the light is coming from the window.

    Happy week

  11. What I have noticed, what makes the French beds look so cool is that there is no box spring. Here in the states you would be looked upon as insane if you offered your guest a bed with only a mattress and no box spring. But, it does make the bed look so charming and simple.

  12. I love it sooo much! The wall color is lovely, and everything in the room just compliments each other!

  13. Hi Leeann, Love this bedroom also....i am a bit of a lover of french toile in reds and creams....take care Amanda

  14. Gorgeous bedroom, I just love it.

  15. You are right, it is simply stunning.

  16. So enchanting,love the
    elegant simplicity of
    this room..
    so sweet:))

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

I first tried this in Provence and loved the combination of the lavender and the honey.

For those of you that have seen the movie it's complicated you will recall that Merryl Streep made it for Steve Martin and it really looked great.

By using honey as opposed to sugar you end up with icecream that is deliciously creamy and the smoothest ice cream you've ever tasted.

Be warned, though - there is a caveat...this ice cream will not freeze as well as homemade ice cream usually does. For those of you who like your ice cream hard freeze the ice cream overnight to make it scoopable, instead of the standard two to three hours after churning


1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup dried lavender
4 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream


1. Bring the milk, cream, honey, and lavender to a gentle boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

2. Remove from the heat and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and let cool a bit.

3.In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg yolks, then gradually add som…

a good idea..

Bonjour from a sunny but chilly SW France,

Hope that you had a nice weekend. We spent yesterday afternoon at a furniture auction but I will tell you more about that later in the week.

Last weekend we bought a lot of wine cases as we thought that they would make good storage, as shown in the photo above.

I particularly liked the idea of making a set of drawers with them or perhaps even a serving tray like this.

We have quite a few boxes and wine box ends so any ideas that you have would be gratefully received...
Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

French Food Friday.....

This week we are taking a break from the skinny theme, and indulging in some healthy pears with some also very healthy chocolate....

About Poires Belle Hélène

This classic French recipe were invented Paris in the 19th century and were named after an opera by Offenbach. What a romantic introduction for this French dessert par excellence, a true classic, found in at least half of the restaurants of the Hexagone. It only takes a few minutes to assemble this dish if you use ready-made ingredients; it is actually not much longer to prepare half of them from scratch (the poached pears and the melted chocolate). You can even make crème Chantilly and toasted flaked almonds for a deluxe version on very special occasions.

About Poires William liqueur

A pear flavoured liqueur. Liqueur is a class of spirit that is usually sweet and often served after dinner. It is produced by either mixing or redistilling spirits with natural ingredients such as fruits, plants, flowers, or chocolate. Sugar must be at…
