House Tour: The Rest of Downstairs

This may sound weird, but I think my favorite space in my house is the downstairs hallway/entryway. A lot of my favorite items are here, and I think this space represents my style better than any other room. Colorful, eclectic, modern, filled with art, and a touch of mid-century and Chinoiserie style.





I also really love the downstairs powder room. It has great little built-in shelves that are the perfect spot to display my collection of French and Italian knick-knacks. About half of them are souvenirs from my trips abroad and the other half are gift from my mom.

Add This to the Bucket List

Did you know you can rent chateaus (castles) in France?! Like big, fairytale looking ones. I stumbled across the site yesterday and I am hooked. The prices aren’t unreasonable either. For example, the Chateau de Marie in the Champagne region sleeps 32 people and only costs about $30 per person per night!! Who wants to join me in pretending to be French royalty for a week?!
