design : french accents

I guess you can consider me a Francophile in a way. In November, whilst getting drinks with an old friend in London he told me that if he didn’t know me personally, he would assume I was some girl wearing a bright pink dress behind a laptop in the middle of the 6th arrondissement from the looks of my blog. The district that includes Saint-Germaine Abbey, Jardins du Luxembourg, Pont des Arts, and of course infamous educational institutions. I guess I’m one who enjoys the glamour of 5th avenue but the ease and je ne sais pas that Parians exude. So when I saw this Hamptons home on Elle, one that houses a New York family full of subtle French accents, nothing too over-the-top, I finally was able to imagine what my friend was trying to tell me.
