California Cool in France

California Cool in France

I love reading the French design magazines — they always seem to be ahead of the game, making trends, not following them. So it's a surprise to find that, occasionally, French designers actually find inspiration from across the pond!

Such was the case with this gorgeous home, inspired by 1950's California modernism. The article doesn't reveal where in France it is, but the lush surroundings (and swimming pool) you'll see in the slideshow lead me to suspect it is somewhere in the south.

Filled with treasures from far-flung locales like Morocco and New York, and designed by architect Laurent Duplantier, the house has a warmth and coziness that only the French could bring to a Palm Springs style abode.
