This is another guest post by my six years old son. Remember his first guest post 'dreamland' where he told you to go buy a new sofa?
Yesterday I had to fix one of his cars (mechanical skills come in handy when you're mother) and while I was doing that he was browsing my 'a place called home' board on Pinterest. He was fascinated by that top photo, which is taken in the home of French designer Jacqueline Morabito, in Saint-Paul de Vence, in the Provence. He loved the chair and the light in the room.
I understand the chair thing, but a six year-old thinking about the light in a room! What's that all about? He agreed to do another guest post, so I opened my most recent inspiration folder to let him browse. He picked the second photo for the same reasons and then he chose the title of the post.
Of course he has a message for you: Keep your homes bright and don't forget to buy white chairs!
You heard him people!
PS. The house, a 16th-century sheep barn, was reconstructed by Morabito and her late husband, architect Yves Bayard (1935-2008). See more photos by clicking on French by Design below. In August 2010, Karine of BODIE and FOU visited Morabito's shop in La Colle sur Loup and shared wonderful photos and a beautiful text.
