Francais Anyone?

Over the last few months, I've found myself gazing longingly through my rose colored glasses at French chateaus, furniture and tapestry much like the ones in this post.  Now, it took me a long time to figure out how someone who loves clean lines and uncomplicated design could be so infatuated with French design.  The answer to this is, I have no clue.  Its funny but honestly at this point I have to agree that opposites do attract.  One of the things I discovered though is that French design is so vast as far as the periods and styles of design. For instance, some of the French Provencial furniture combines clean lines and elaborate design so I totally love this style.  On the other hand French Rococo is very ornate and dramatic so you have to really like this style to be able to live with it everyday.  Over all I think French design is the stuff! Well, don't take my word for it, check it out.
