“i’m off to my country home in Provence. you know, paris is just so crowded and warm in the summer months, we simply must get away” — wouldn’t we all like to say that? i’d be very down with that. ouí. home life recently featured this paris couple’s rustic country retreat in arles, france and they had me dreaming of my own little summer escape. the things i love best about this pretty place are those terrazzo floors (so in again!) and its modern simplicity. linen slipcovers smashing in summer whites, black butterfly chairs, and even those vintage black leather folding chairs give this rustic pad a hip edge, that je nais se quoi — that quality that eludes description but the french are able to pull off so perfectly. to see the full tour of this beautiful french country home, visit home life.

  1. I like the living room. The folding chairs around the dining table look uncomfortable. The garden is lovely, and so is Arles.
    Even better than having a getaway in Provence is living full-time in the south of France. And not necessarily Provence. Languedoc is awfully beautiful and laid-back.

  2. It’s just so beautiful! I like the rustic because it reinforces my idea that your home can be cool even when the money you spend in it is limited.I know it’s not the case of this house, but I mean the concept. X

  3. For me that long trough sink in the bath with the rough cut wood countertops is the shizzle!

    On a different note, this is one of my life’s goals- to have 12 different homes around he world so when I retire I can spend every month in a different city.
