I have been asked how we chose the theme of white for our next edition of our French Box ….. what is it about white and French living?

I remember becoming aware of this when as a student I arrived in the South of France, and made my first friends.  They invited me  to their family properties.  This opened a whole new world to me.  Interior design was so different to anything I had seen growing up.   There was an effortless mixing of genres, a gentle colour palette and of course all of this helped by that special light in the south.

Since that time I have always been aware of the white around me, and always welcomed touches  to my own home.  Of course with four children, dogs and horses, an all-white look is not the obvious choice, but actually you don’t need to go all white to enjoy it.

I love white in the garden, and have always had white roses strategically planted.

… of course if you read me you’ll know about my obsession with antique white linens,   ……

or white soup tureens ….

or white china

or even white pumpkins!

And this is how we came to choose the theme for the next edition of My Stylish French Box.  We called it White Like May Blossom, because it will be shipped in May.  Inside (although of course I cannot reveal the details)  there will be products for you, something that smells divine, something old and everything will be quite beautiful.  I am very excited to share this box, it feels more personal to me than past boxes and I hope you will love each detail.

The boxes are being sold pretty fast but we still have some available, so if you’d like a touch of French-ness in your home this spring, just click HERE to purchase.
