We were sitting at the Paris airport last week, happily scrolling through all the pictures from our most recent buying trip and congratulating ourselves on our “best container yet.” (We’ve had a few of those!) Right then I happened to pick up one of my favorite French magazines, Art & Decoration, and literally gasped at the beauty of one of the homes featured. Sitting on the biggest plot of private land within the historic walls of Avignon, this luxurious B&B, La Divine Comedie, is beyond divine! If, on our many buying trips, we could ever gather up all the treasures that we find and put them in one place, we would dream that the house would look just like this!
Although we've never been to La Divine Comedie, we think these photos -- by Christophe Rouffio for Art & Decoration magazine -- speak beautifully for themselves.
This divine house has it all: A sumptuous garden, richly textured architectural elements, and a very elegant mix of antiques with just enough modern thrown in to keep it edgy, stylish and comfortable. To us, La Divine Comedie is the embodiment of continental style: A mix of modern and traditional style, filled with the kinds of treasures that draw us back to Europe over and over again in the search of similarly beautiful and rare, one-of-a-kinds.
Do you like the look? We may be able to help you! Our latest container, the one that's arriving next month, is filled with treasures that will give you the look:
We may not be able to recreate an 18th Century mansion from Avignon (although I'm sure somebody can!) but we're more than happy to help you find the furnishings! And if you're ever in Avignon, be sure to check out The Divine Comedie.
