My favorite places, a house in Provence

In my weekly search for charming corners, I found this image, which is typical of a house old in french provence. Every detail of the room so poorly furnished has, however, a unique charm.

That tiled floor They have lost part of their color from both scrubbed and waxed, the walls whitewashed with a couple of paintings, without artistic value, but that says a lot about the personality of the inhabitants of the house.

He walnut chest, like the closet closet, show the inevitable marks of the passage of time, is what the restorers and antique dealers call the "patina of time", that patina that shows in the different parts of the same piece of furniture, where the layers of wax accumulated over the years, have darkened the wood.

And as a climax to such a wonderful stay, thonet chair. The oldest design chair in history, in my case one of my favorite seats, simple, familiar, comfortable. From what we see, we can imagine the rest of the room. An old high headboard bed with a hand-woven crochet bedspread or perhaps a headboard bed with a washed and waxed pine bedside table and a old longliner in a corner, near a bare window, which frames a wonderful landscape ... Let your imagination fly.

It is warm, radiant without overwhelming and combined with a lot of tones, not to mention that its complementary, blue, is one of the colors of this season. Beyond absurd superstitions I love that color and I recommend it in its softer versions to decorate rooms.
