What I saw in… Concarneau.

Concarneau, France. One of the largest fishing ports in France – it’s only fitting that I lead off today’s post with this brilliant print by an local artist named Valérie Le Roux. Brilliant in every sense. The orange-red was practically jumping out of the wall when I first caught sight of it. Love her illustrative style, what do you think?

 

… I couldn’t get enough of French white lace curtains. Saw them everywhere in France and I have to say, they have really grown on me. And so is the color blue…

 

… just the most charming crêpe stand tugged away in a corner on a cul de sac. Sea green counter with black and white chalkboard/handwriting is too lovely for words.

 

… and of course, more crêpe related graphics! Don’t you just love this? Couldn’t pass this one up. She looks so sweet… with the red and white polka dot tablecloth in the background? Yeah, pretty awesome.

 

… I did say my new favorite color is blue, right? We walked by so many private residences. It was amazing to see them “from behind” so to speak. Look at the one below with their garden out back. A bit unkept, but isn’t that the true beauty though?
