South of France Farm House

A nifty farm house in the south of France showcases industrial materials and lots of old wood.  I'm really getting into corrugated tin right now, especially when it's patinated like this wall treatment. The juxtaposition of industrial and the wood in this space is fantastic.  Simply old world with a spin!

Farm House Style

Heading out to the country today to check on the construction progress of my farm house.  Stay tuned for photos.  In the meantime here are some images from my "farm house" files.  Happy Friday!

A Collage Studio

I'm always fascinated by the environments people work and live in, especially people that are in the creative industry.  This space is where Gail Rieke creates her collages made from natural found objects.  Her collage trunk wall is so beautiful!

Gallery Walls

I still love an amazing eclectic gallery wall!  I'll always have one in my home.

California Dream

Ellen's and Portia's California ranch house is perfection!  It's nice to see that they both have amazing taste when it comes to furnishing their Hidden Valley retreat.  Mid 20th Century French furniture combined with Early American furniture is nicely balanced beneath the exposed beamed rooms.  Elle Decor...Great article!

Perfect Pot

I am completely obsessed with Virginie Besengez pottery!  Her work is perfection and I hope one day and can throw as good as her.  She says " I am inspired by the urban landscapes around me, the architecture of the North and by the austere aesthetic of Flemish still-life.  I like plain clay  monochrome compositions.  I shape my pieces and accumulate them according to an imaginary plan, to create installations in search of the perfect balance."
