Patterns At Lafitte

Last summer, I took you with me to Lafitte, a mansion/castle in the South West of France where I spend a few weeks every year. This year, we are going to step into the rooms again, as I wanted to share with you some of the beautiful patterns that brighten up many of the rooms... Come in!
From top:
1. the cotton sheets in my room
2. the wallpaper in the stairs
3. bedspread in the master bedroom
4. a comfy chair in the main living room

How totally perfect.

Mary-Laure said...

DEBRA - and there's more to come!

J ELAINE - oh he always loves a comfy chair! And he's digging like crazy atop the bedspreads.

IF JANE - you are just too adorable, always.

I love this little glimpse into your french sojourn. For some reason I can't help but think of The Mysteries of Udolpho when I think of a house in the French countryside. Maybe because there's something so old world and antique about these exquisite patterns--they probably are antiques! You are staying in a castle, after all.

More pics, please. :-)

Dionne said...

Oh I wanna go! How lovely. I love all the colors, patterns and textures. Gorgeous!

J Elaine said...

I would like to ask the Oracle how he likes the French countryside and how he finds life in a chateau?

josephine said...

such pretty old-school patterns! hope you are enjoying paris.

Mary-Laure said...

JOANNA - there will be more pics in the days to come!
I've been wanting to read The Mysteries of Udolpho since I read Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey.

J ELAINE - Hi my doll! I'm having a wonderful time here at Laiftte. All I do is fetch the ball, sniff intensively, get in trouble with the neighbor's cat and play with the kids - except for one kid whom I met again today and whose limbs I wanted to bite into.
I can't wait to see you! Woof!

Sam said...

Thank you - you kind person for sharing! So lovely!

Ann said...

Lovely patterns, the last one is my favorite ... thanks for sharing.

Sammi said...

The sheets have the most awesome patterns

Mary-Laure said...

SAMMI - yes, it's a dream to sleep in them, I just love it!

J Elaine said...

Oh the age old rivalry between cat and dog. Hey, maybe Jean-Robert was a cat in a former life or maybe a rival ex-con?!

Jaimee said...

How lovely...thanks for bringing us in :)

Benjy said...

J ELAINE - I like your idea, doll. That kid gives out a bad vibe. I'm pretty sure I heard him Meow at me some time ago...

A World in a PAN said...

Familiar patters ... I wish I could be there!

Rebecca said...

That wallpaper is gorgeous! So bold and pretty. :)

Rachel Fox said...

I'm a bit of a pattern-free zone. You might just be stirring me to do something about that...

Mary-Laure said...

RACHEL - be bold! It really livens up a room...

Roxana said...

oh, these patterns make me go crazy! soooo lovely!
