Green Doors and Shutters in France

Moody gray greens are my favorite color. In Provence I spotted this very particular green on front doors, shutters, lights and fences. “That’s my green,” I exclaimed to Greg! I painted the molding in my den Farrow & Ball’s Verte De Terre; which looks very similar. The gray undertones of the green pigment are gorgeous against stone. Below some snapshots of greens spotted around Provence.

Patchwork Landscape In Provence

I was hesitant about being pregnant and traveling abroad. I had been sick for the first 14 weeks and at the time of booking our trip I was barely eating anything more then soda crackers. My practical self told me I shouldn’t be wasting money when I had massive house renovation to deal with. With a long list of excuses I decided to book the trip anyway. France turned out to be a celebration of our life together and an experience we will remember for the rest of our lives. We are already planning a trip with baby (hopefully) for next May.

Greg and I loved France and Provence especially. The beautiful scenery and country roads captured us. Our first Sunday in Provence we spent the morning wandering through the antique stores and weekly market in L’Isle sur la Sorgue. From there we drove east with the top down in our rented convertible taking in the sweet smells of spring. We got lost and this is what we found—ancient villages, rolling hills and vistas of patchwork green fields.
