I've been to Provence many years ago. I was very inspired by the cuisine and the whole atmosphere of the region. It is dotted with restaurants, antique shops, wineries and beautiful colorful homes. What I remember the most was the color palette. Tablecloths are vivid and usually are red, yellow(gold) and blue. The dishes are just as vibrant. I bought a few tablecloths for myself and family members. At the moment my house is being renovated except for my veranda. I finally decided to take all my souvenirs out and dress up my table. Guess what? I cant find the tablecloth I was keeping all these years. Anyway I'm going back to Provence at the end of August and it will give me an excuse to go shopping and find new ones. This is the look I was trying to create:
Here is a picture of a typical linen shop in Provence. I love the intense colors:
I am participating in Tablescape Thursday.
Susan is the hostess of this wonderful meme. You can visit her at : Between naps on the porch and see what she has in store this week. It is breathtaking! There are also other participants that are also super talented in the art of table dressing. Have a look by clicking on the icon:
