Blue and White French Country House

One of my favourite places to find photographs of cool interiors is The Telegraph Magazine. I can't bring myself to actually buy the newspaper cos the editorial usually makes me want to wail and gnash my teeth, so my patient parents collect all the magazines for me and hand over a stack every now and then. Which is where I came across the gorgeous French house belonging to the very chic sisters behind Bodie and Fou, a fabulous interiors online boutique (they also run a lovely blog). A little googling turned up some more pictures from Grand Designs Magazine.

All photos taken by Michael Paul for The Telegraph Magazine, and Christopher Tubbs for Grand Designs Magazine.

Obligatory blue shutters:

Love the contrast between the modern kitchen units and wooden vintage cabinet, plus the mismatched lighting:

The style is so simple, but it feels very lived in:

I like the photographs hidden away inside the kitchen cupboard, and the austerity of the wooden bench, tiled floor, black and white photography and Tord Boontje lampshade:

It's interesting how the two different publications styled this bedroom - which one do you prefer?

Awesome wall paper:

Cute rocking horse:

What do you think? Could you live here? I think I probably could - y'know, if you twisted my arm :-)
