Leah's Weathered French Villa Retreat

The last time I found myself in France I was a broke student with literally not a cent to my name. Needless to say, my dreams of spending leisurely days exploring old villas and relaxing in luxuriously textured rooms at night were not to be had. But if they were, that lovely place would have included all things understated, elegant, and serene.

I love to travel, but I rarely sleep anywhere as well as I do in my own bed which I think is due to the overly sterile and impersonal vibe of so many hotels. My dream escape would include an overall muted, nature- inspired palette to invite relaxation, but also layers of textures and interesting natural patinas to provide warmth, interest, and a bit of homey-ness.
