Gorgeous and Green on the Road: France!
This summer we went to France for the second time, and I have to say, it still doesn't disappoint. Here are a few photos of interest from the trip. Lots of yummy beach time, food and of course, DESIGN that interested me.
If you get the chance, have lunch at the restaurant in the Paris Gare du Nord Train Station. It is absolutely beautiful. This is just the ceiling.
We spent the bulk of our time on the coast of France, near Marseille and Cassis. Beautiful clear mediterranean waters, and lots of sun. This location was one of the calanques or "coves" in the mountains created by the sea. at the National Park. There is plenty of hiking and even mountain climbing to do here. You can also just lay out and take a nap.
We stopped for some chill time at a little cafe on the water in Marseille. Great place for a dip or a late lunch and aperitif.
Lots of love in France.
I always enjoy visiting the little restaurants in museums (a favorite being the Smithsonian Art Museum's cafe for tea service when I was a kid). We stopped in to the tea room at the Louvre and had lunch and of course this special chocolate bomb of a desert shaped like the museum's pyramid.
Once of my favorite pieces of art/artifact at the Louvre.
For our last dinner in Paris a friend recommended Le Servan. A lovely meal.
I didn't create any floral designs while I was there, but I did wear plenty of florals. :)
