Now that the season allows it we can start living more outdoor and what is best than having a few friends over for a simple lunch on a terrace, a patio, a balcony or if we are lucky to have it…in a garden.
This beautiful house in the South of France can give us some inspiration, even if we live in a much smaller place, we can be inspired by the mix of styles, the palette, the use of simple objects to create a vignette.
The whole house presents a neutral and soft palette with pale greys and off-whites, powdery tones that allow the greenery outside to shine through large windows and to diffuse the strong light of long summers.
Last year I visited Luberon region, in the south of France and I was enchanted by L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Avignon, Uzès and the numerous brocante and antiquarians in the region, not to mention the flea markets full of treasures. I am sure that in this house some objects were rescued from those places, and they mix so well with contemporary or more expensive pieces.
The classic Le Corbusier white leather chairs are produced by Cassina, the floor lamp is an original Serge Mouille. In the large living room there are also white linen sofas and XVIII century original decoration and antique accessories blending so well with contemporary style.

Beauty sometimes is very simple, old stones, ivy, perennials, no need for vibrant colors, just quiet and harmony.
