Our first stop was a romantic little shop that smelled like the lavender fields of Provence. Cote Jardin Antiques had just what the Countess ordered for a lazy afternoon in the garden.

With locations in both Washington D.C. and West Palm Beach, as well as a base in Provence, they have just the collection needed to set you up in a “maison secondaire” of your own. Through contacts in Paris and the South of France, Cote Jardin Antiques acquires unique French decorative pieces from all periods in history. Everything that we saw was delightfully charming, and the staff was warm and welcoming.

After a lot of window shopping and weaving in and out of shops we happened upon Lars Bolander’s Design firm. What a treat to be able to view his newest shipment. I have always been a fan of his work.DSC_2706

Lastly, we discovered “The Garden of Eden” at Mecox Home, Antiques and Design.  I was astounded at the floral design work that abounds here. Taking beautiful photographs was easy when the composition had been so thoughtfully preplanned.
