It’s every American’s dream to wake up hearing the streets of Paris and feel time stand still. As the scent of freshly baked croissants linger through your window, you seem drawn to grab a bite before taking a long stroll through a nearby garden. If the vie de francaise has been calling your name as of late, you’re not alone. Maybe it’s the promise of sweet Summer romance, or the call to take an afternoon off and picnic in Forsyth Park. To bring the romance of Paris back home, we’ve put together a French-inspired contemporary master suite that aims to make the days grow longer and the nights to be full of nothing short of magic.

1. We set the tone to this posh Parisian suite with romantic lilac tones found in Noble and Wood’s Berlingot Wallpaper. Place behind the bed for a feature wall or use as a poppy dresser drawer liner in a vintage armoire.

2. It’s not French unless there’s crystal, and what better way to finish a master bedroom than with a stunning chandelier from Eloquence. Hanging the fixture over the bed allows for a lower drop height to add more drama.

3. Shed light by your bedside as you stay up late reading Les Miserables. With a feminine “swoop” swivel arm and white linen shade, the Koleman Swinger from Robert Abbey goes with virtually any space.

4. Keep the bedroom from getting too frumpy with clean, mid-century inspired bedside tables from West Elm. The white lacquer finish promises ultimate flexibility and the brass hardware adds a noticeable touch of class.

5. Keep your favorite eau de parfum on display with Anthropologie’s set of mirrored trays. These also make a great bedside accessory for reading glasses or jewelry.

6. Hedgehouse’s Lavender Heather Throw Pillow is the ultimate, versatile bed accessory. The striped linen is light and airy, and the tasseled zipper adds a perfect little detail to your pillowscape.

7. Simple geometric shapes let these Alexa Canisters shine on your bookshelf or console without adding clutter. Remove the top for an impromptu vase that holds lavender and other scents of Provence.

8. The piece de resistance, Eloquence’s Sophia Silver Two-Tone Bed is surely fit for French royalty. Top with linen bedding for the perfect lazy Sunday morning getaway.

Artist Spotlight: Sweet & Vicious

We can’t think of anyone better to showcase for the latest Artist Spotlight than the super talented team behind Sweet & Vicious. Written and styled by Libbie Summers with stunning photography by Chia Chong, Sweet & Vicious is all about whipping up wicked-sweet creations in your kitchen that feature daring culinary combinations to delight your taste buds. The hundreds of recipes, elixirs, and extracts throughout the book aren’t even the best part; just try and keep a straight face as Libbie shares the conception of each and every bite along her journey from fierce foodie to culinary producer.

For our Sweet & Vicious interior, we took inspiration from the bright and poppy photo behind Libbie’s Good and Plenty Cupcakes. The playful contrast between the bubblegum pink icing and daring black and white patterned blouse had us envisioning a young but fierce coming-of-age girl who’s not afraid to style her bedroom with a little punch. Following Libbie’s daring attitude, evident throughout the book (think Habanero Carrot Cake and Meatball Muffins), we curated interior elements that aren’t afraid to express a little personality.

Lovebird Lingo

We’re not sure why birds get all the love during this season, but it sure does lend to some great home decor and furnishings. Today we’ve put together some of our favorite bird items that will have your home chirping style in no time.

1. You may find yourself daydreaming next to this sparrow wallpaper by Hygge and West. The subtle pops of “almost green” can give just the right amount of color to a neutral room. Use this on a large wall (or all four) without having to worry about the space looking too busy.

2. Two lumps are always better than one with this Grapefruit Sugar Bowl. The lid comes off to reveal a blue ceramic spoon for your serving pleasure.

3. Show your love from the ground up with Anthropologie’s Conure Rug. With sizes ranging from 2.5′ round to 8′, you’re sure to have a place in your home for this beauty. We recommend anchoring it down with a comfy lounge chair in a reading nook or living room.

4. This little brass bird has just the space for your hand soap or jewelry. You could also use this vintage brass dish as a catch-all for keys by your front door.

5. Keep a lookout for swans this season; these birds are out to take the spotlight. Be the first to welcome these aviary trendsetters into your kitchen with this screen printed swan tea towel.

6. Place a bold pattern like on this graphic bird pillow to add some visual interest to a pair of club chairs or sofa. The neutral beige linen allows this to work in virtually any space.

7. We get a moody, “Alice in Wonderland” feeling from this beautifully illustrated Flights of Fancy Wallpaper. This pattern would be perfect to liven up a small space such as a guest bath or powder room.

8. What is a love nest without a cuckoo clock? This modern adaptation is made of laser cut wood pieces to give you that classic feel without all the weight. Place this guy in an open space such as a living room or front entry for all to see.

9. Cover the messy side of your fireplace with this birdcage fireplace screen from Katherine Barnwell. Let this gem really make a statement by painting your fireplace surround Benjamin Moore OC-117 Simply White.

10. Even if you’re known for your lightness of foot, this solid brass Wenge Bird of Prey Cane would look great taking residence in your umbrella stand or leaning near the front door.

11. Paule Marrot’s “Doves” piece can work in so many places of your home. Place behind the master bed for a romantic bird haven, on top of the fireplace mantle for a classical living space, or on its own in the dining room for a gentle conversation starter.
