A Dreamy Vintage-inspired Family Home on the French Riviera

Bonjour! Yes, you've guessed it, we're off to France today. Not IRL of course (although that would've been nice, don't you think?) - but right here on the blog. Jessica, her husband and their two children Cara and Maya live in a beautiful home on the French Riviera. Decorated in calming neutrals, the house is a sea of cool white and cream, punctuated with rattan and wood for warmth. Vintage furniture and art help to add a relaxed vibe throughout - and the perfect base from which to explore Cannes, St Tropez, Nice and Monaco. Bienvenue chez Jessica! 

I'd do a house swap in an instant - how about you? 

There are so many beautiful ideas to feel inspired by too - I love the childrens' room in particular (that bunkbed and shared desk!). 

Is there anything that stood out to you?

Shall we take a peek at a few other French homes today? Here are some VERY inspiring blasts from the past: 

I hope you enjoyed today's France-inspired post as much as I did. All this talk has made me dream of having Moules frites for lunch! Mmmm! 

After an international week, perhaps I'll return tomorrow with a Scandinavian tour - we'll see! Sending hugs until then!

  1. My favourite detail is the shelving unit (with the fish tank) squeezed behind the kitchen unit and the wall perpendicular to it. I love such nooks and I wonder if this one was created on purpose. Sadly, I don't any nooks like that in my home.
    I saw in another house tour a wall that had a very shallow rectangular opening (way to narrow to accommodate books so the owner built a little frame into it and a few shelves and they filled them with white column candles of various heights. It was very pretty, I wish I could remember where I saw it.

    1. I love your eye for detail Alena. Thank you for pointing this out!

  2. This is a beautiful home. I love the gentle use of color.

    Alena, my husband teases me that we bought our house because I fell in love with the built in shelves. He may be right!

    1. Haha, I actually did not see your comment in March but I found it accidentally two months later (May 11, 2022). There is nothing wrong with knowing you what you love and going for it. I bought a house as soon as I saw the huge backyard with trees (for my dogs). :-)
