Bright + Beautiful in Bordeaux

March 15, 2013

This week hasn’t exactly been bright (both literally and figuratively) but this lovely townhouse in Bordeaux, France instantly lifted my spirits and reminded me that it won’t always be puddles and clouds in my little world. Photographed beautifully by Julien Fernandez, this home simply must be the most charming and eclectic space that I ever did see! I absolutely love the way home owner Elodie mixed period pieces and portraits with mid century touches and quirky tidbits throughout. Did I mention that she renovated the previously dark and gloomy space from top to bottom? This petite townhouse is now bursting with personality and light, come and see…

I told you it was charming! And could the exterior be any more perfect? The perfect antidote for this blustery Ides of March. Hope you enjoyed this tour as much as I did and have a great weekend!

I think I totally pinned everything on the page! I love how they contrasted everything with the white walls.

Where do I start? I don’t know why, but I love that flamingo, and the brown and gold chairs really should be in my home. ;) Love this place!

It was the flamingo that first caught my eye, Janis, after Sadie’s artistic endeavours with my mom this week :)

Glad you all enjoyed this little French home…I could move in tomorrow, or tonight for that matter!

This house is so me!! I’m thrilled to see such an effortless mix of sleek contemporary and feminine vintage chic. It reminds me of my little Toronto apartment- bright and modern in the living room, while my bedroom is more cozy and girly with white sheets and the Ikea-equivalent to that bed frame. It’s nice to know I wasn’t *so* crazy with my design choices! Love! Thanks for sharing Lily!
