Last fall, I set out to Provence, France with collaborators, kindred spirits and the talents behind Lynette Boyle Photography and Amanda Vidmar Designs to be inspired by a new environment and see what art we released. Honored to see the result published on Magnolia Rouge today! The goal was to be creatively energized and challenged to trust our instincts and each other in order to produce something unique and inspiring. France culture and style resonates for all 3 of us, so it was a natural destination for a romantic, natural, yet sophisticated design. Based on the overall design concept, I brought table top pieces, taper candles and paper goods as a base for the design. Amanda of Amanda Vidmar Designs shipped a few blooms for the base of her floral vision from Holland. Everything else was sourced locally in Provence. We exchanged a few emails with the hosts of Villa Aurenjo and they were the most gracious hosts. Some of my favorite images as well as more about the experience below. Please see our full list of vendor credits at the bottom of this post and don’t miss the full feature on Magnolia Rouge.
Although we left much up to chance, we saw this as part of the fun. Growth isn’t born out of comfort and we collectively love to push ourselves in our work. It also ensured our design would be reflective of the Provence area and season – truly authentic, yet still reflective of our style. Upon arrival, we had half a day to source the rest of the pieces we needed to complete the design. The morning was spent at a local farmers market where we purchased local hellebores, mushrooms and wine for our table. Next was a walk around the town of Orange to forage foliage for Amanda’s floral arrangements. The furniture was sourced from the Villa and desserts from a local patisserie. Our real French couple were locals and accepting of our request just an hour before we were set to begin shooting.
