Today's post is all about countryside. Relax and project yourself into a warm mediterranean one of your choice, like a small village in Provence, a cottage in Tuscany or a retreat in a greek island. Think of stone and unrefined woods, rattan and linen, aged pieces of furniture, items once used now forgotten, souvenirs of past times and today's basic accents; a book, a hat and a vase to put the freshly cut summer blooms. Such places desire simplicity and provide protection. They keep you away from the harsh sun by putting you right inside their shady and soft hug. What is not to love about this carefree style?
