Ile de re colours

We have just returned - filled with inspiration from our travels around france.

Lots of lovely food and some interesting brocanting! 

I thought i would share with you some pictures of Ile de Re, one of my favourite places -we go back most years, it has similar light quality to st ives. Big skies, billowing drifts of wild fennel, and wonderful chalky coloured shutters on all of the buildings, which always inspire me for colours in our designs! 


the Island is a spit of land off the coast of La Rochelle, famed for its salt, oysters and little buttery yellow potatoes. Everyone cycles everywhere which is lovely and makes it blissfully quiet. 



the beautiful soft chalky paint colours of the shutters always a source of inspiration!
