Exterior Inspiration

I love how the tones of the surroundings are gradually pulled into the casual interior of this holiday home in Ardèche, in the South of France.  The tone of the surrounding red terracotta roofs are picked up in the painted surround of the outdoor pool.  'ETE' (been) stands against the pools wall, in a deeper saturated tone. Finally, the interior utlizies the same soft taupes and vibrant corals, reinforcing to, when in doubt, look to your surroundings to draw tonal and textural inspiration. It doesn't hurt when your surroundings are in the south of France. Images via Cote Maison.
