beautiful books

During the last couple of weeks, I've had the pleasure of spending some time with two beautiful French-themed books. Got to love the library!

I had been meaning to check out Vicki Archer's lovely book French Essence for a while. I have been following her gorgeous blog, of the same name, for a long time, and I always enjoy reading about her life in France, and seeing the exquisite images she posts. While looking through French Essence, I found myself transported to life in Provence, thanks to phenomenal photos by Carla Coulson, along with Vicki Archer's delicious words. It was a journey of sensual delight, as you can see.

The other book I got out was another I had seen online, and had been meaning to look at. It was pure eye candy. I'm talking about Paris in Color by Nichole Robertson. I loved the book's theme of having each chapter be about a different colour. Also, I really enjoyed the way some elements, like doors, Vespas, and chairs, are repeated throughout the book, while other images are unique.

Both books were such a joy to look at. Next on my reading list will be Vicki Archer's other book, My French Life. I'm sure it will be equally as delightful.

Lovely images and you will adore 'My French Life'. I own it and it is an inspiration for all things french and lovely.
