When I peruse the images stored on my computer a reoccurring theme becomes increasingly obvious--french blue shutters. What I love to photograph are all the different shades of blue you see and how fantastic this particular color looks with the stone houses. We painted the front door of La Maisonnette a pretty blue/gray and have plans to paint all of the shutters the same color in the next few years. One project at a time though...
And speaking of the cottage, Simply the Sweet Life magazine featured our story in their most recent edition. We are so grateful they chose to feature our story (about La Maisonnette) in their magazine. It was fun for my husband and I to share our recommendations for the area as well as the story about how it all came to pass. If you're not yet tired of France-related posts here in Blogland, feel free to take a peek :)
p.s. does anyone know why blue is the preferred color of choice in France when it comes to doors, trim and shutters? Yes, it looks amazing from a color perspective, but is there a deeper meaning I wonder?
