Bonpoint Inspiration

Bonpoint is one of my absolute favorite French stores… and although I can’t quite afford to dress Olivia in their beautiful and tres cher clothes like Suri Cruise and other celeb-babes, I am always inspired by the store designs and displays.

Their signature Vanuta Twilight wallpaper {available at anthropologie now here}

Painted tables and antique chandeliers

And I am so in love with these Turkish-Barak rugs in their perfect pastels. In fact, I try to get them to sell me one everytime I go to the store {I have a store in Dubai near me}

Even Olivia loves Bonpoint!

You may remember that Olivia’s painting in her bedroom is from Bonpoint~ See here and here!

mediterranean olive oil is so yummy and so beautiful. i went to a few shops while in nice… NICOLAS ALZIARI, which i love {and i also noticed it is sitting on the shelf in kitchen of the famous something’s gotta give hamptoms home…

and A L’OLIVIER, whose products & stores are impeccably designed…

compagnie de provence

i was introduced to SAVON de MARSEILLE by my sister a while ago {you can find it at boutiques in the states} but when i found it the other day in nice it was my first time in a COMPAGNIE de PROVENCE store…i was in heaven! not only is the colorful yet simple packaging so cute but the fragrances are delish. they add color & class to any kitchen or bathroom. love the rose in my powder bath {even my husband loves to wash his hands in there!}
