An Elegant French Interior

Elegant French Home

This vintage cabinet is one of the few pieces in the home that Corey painted–she toned down the original bright yellow with three types of matte gray paint to give it an older-looking finish. Inside is a tableau of porcelain, seashells, antique paperback books, balls of twine, and other flea-market discoveries from across the South of France, all in shades of white or cream. 

For more on this elegant French interior, see ” The Patina of Time,” in the Victoria Classics French Cottage 2015 issue of Victoria magazine.
