Not Coming to Provence This Year?

No problem! I'll bring a little Provence to you!  First, visit my incredible sponsor, Authentic Provence. There you can browse to your heart's content and find ... well, authentically Provençal furnishings and building materials for your home and garden. This is your go to source for the bones of your Provençal look and ambience. 

To these strong neutrals you can add your own glorious Provençal paint colors from Annie Sloan Chalk Paints, then be sure to add lots of linens and wonderful prints in les couleurs et esprit de provence

from Annie Sloan's chalk paints and fabrics selections

now this is a rooster I can get behind! the symbol of France,
the rooster is most often seen in a garish ceramic rendering
that will take over an entire room visually.. this handsome
fellow could quietly crow in dignified grace!

gorgeous French tableware from Authentic Provence

the sunny colors of Provence! this gate available

even the old authentic roof tiles of Provence can be found

just another pretty Provençal mas :)  this is actually the Bastide de Couvent

the classic "hex" tommettes that are so Provençal are available

Now to bring colors into your Provençal decor, go quickly to Annie Sloan and find the nearest dealer to you. There you will learn how to create wonderful finishes in those incredible foggy grays, taupes, linens, creams, and blues and how to get those fabulous chalky finishes. You'll learn to distress and then wax your furniture... I've really fallen hard for this line!
