Design: Love, Laugh, Lavender.

One of the most inspiring parts of my travel in France was a cozy little place called La Maison Douce. It has charm oozing from its old chipped painted surfaces. I fell in love with the soft calming hues of lavender and earthy green paired with crisp white linens. The breakfast room was almost completely white with hints of black and gold. I got the sense that every detail was carefully considered. Everything had its purpose and place. There was a simplistic natural elegance; a feeling that you were home but still far away from all the craziness of life. I felt so grounded and at peace with my surroundings. Even the morning breakfast of freshly squeezed orange juice, toasted baguette, sliced cheese, yogurt, dried fruit and nuts, assorted jams and honey, and french pressed coffee gave the impression of ease but was filled with love and care. It was the absolute perfect blending of textures, colors, sounds, smells, and tastes to make my senses feel truely relaxed and on vacation.
