I can’t quite put my finger on it. I think my love affair with all things French may have begun when I was younger when I watched Gene Kelly in ‘An American in Paris’.
Perhaps it was when I lost myself in Peter Mayle’s novel ‘A Year in Provence’ that I devoured many years ago.
Most certainly, my l’amour was made permanent when I took my first trip to Paris in 1998.
Whenever it happened, it happened, and my decorating style was forever altered. I can’t help myself ~ I’m a self professed Francophile.
Despite my love of traditional French decor, I do like to inject a little modern flair, and the new mirror and trellis pattern rug in the living room certainly help.
