A Week in Provence

I recently headed for Provence on a sourcing trip/mini holiday as this particular part of the world had been a recommend by a great friend.  Travelling via Lille, collecting some brocante along the way and also a chance to check this venue for the upcoming annual Brocante Market there.
Then I made my way South to a beautiful spot near Cassis in Provence - the charming Relais de Magdeleine Hotel was to be my sanctuary for a few days. As always with the Relais Chateaux collection, the hotel did not fail to provide a pleasurable and inspirational stay. For all those that love staying in beautiful
historical buildings with inspiring interiors look no further. Whilst my experience does not extend beyond France from sourcing trips I can only imagine that the rest of the International collection will be lovely.

 After a little local explore to source some vintage pieces to bring back with me I settled down to enjoy some fabulous wine from the local region - Domaine Du Paternal vinyard and reflected on the fabulous inspirations I had gleaned for an upcoming decoration project - with the brief "restore two drawing rooms of a Sussex country period manor house to their original state with Provencial inspiration".

I am now back in the UK armed with ideas and pieces to fulfill my assignment.
