Quirky, Cute and Colourful

I have a bit of a thing for all things French and I’m always a sucker for bookshelves so I just love this colourful apartment in Nimes, France – the town where Denim orginated!!


This home belongs to artist couple Myriam and Dominique who decided to escape the busyness of Paris and moved to a large apartment in the city of Nîmes, France.



The apartment with high ceilings and large windows is situated in a building that was constructed in 1835. The large space makes it possible to move freely, to entertain friends and for their two children to play. Most of the rooms are decorated with a multitude of colour. The Scandinavian antique chairs in the living room were dressed in floral fabrics from Robert Le Heros and a wall of the passage is covered with a strip of wallpaper with trompe l’oeil effect (by Deborah Bowness for The Collection). The wallpaper in the guest room walls was torn off and the owners so liked the effect that they left the walls bare.


The master bedroom is the one contrasting room to the rest of the apartment where the neutral palette is used to create a peaceful and calming retreat.

She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
