Mind wandering weekend

Lately my mind often wanders about going to France, to places where time seems to stand still, driving through rolling hills suffused with warm orange light from the setting sun... Visiting small and charming villages, strolling through a market or climbing up to the highest point for a magnificent view. Then coming home to a wonderful, Provence style decorated space for moments of relaxing, reading books, eating outside and for refreshment in the pool. Yes, the memories and dreams are vividly popping up. As to give you an impression of my dream, the space would look something like this;) What were your mind wandering thoughts these past few days? Hope you're enjoying a pleasing end of the weekend!

  1. you read my mind today. Although, honestly, there isn't a day that goes by that I DON'T dream of being in France. *sigh* I'll go fill the void with a croissant now ;)

    Oh, that is so nice. Wouldn't mind spending a day or a week ... or maybe a whole month in that place. Cottage in France is on my future's agenda.

    PS. Anait's croissant comment above is simply too funny, haha

    My mind has been wandering to the same place! France and Provence in particular is one of my favourite places, it has a magic like nowhere else.

  4. I'm loving this heavenly spot! It looks perfect to stay in, and in the morning to have a lovely cup of coffee and greet the day.

  5. I'm often dreaming of France in summertime. You've described so well my idea of a Provence vacation and this is such a beautiful home. I hope you enjoyed your weekend, Christel! xoxo

  6. love the outdoor chairs, the easy style, the internal stone... the sunshine and light.

    i love France, but love Italy and Spain too.....

  7. Oh my mind often wanders to France. All throughout the year, actually :) Hope you had a wonderful weekend, Christel. Thanks for another gorgeous, inspiring post :) xoxo

  9. My mind wanders all over home decor these days--I always want to do a multitude of looks and have to reign it in...right now, it's beachy rustic.
