You might be wondering what is this 'Coté Sud' she is going on about?
It's a gorgeous French lifestyle journal focusing on interiors, travel, art and food.
I used to collect them though they cost a fortune in the US compared to here.
A perfect source of creative inspiration to dive into. Give it a look next time you see it. They are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. Plus there is a Coté Est, Coté Ouest and a Paris version.
Every spring they hold big fairs first in St.Tropez, then in Aix.
The fair/salon is like the magazine, full of color.
Rich pattern and texture.
In town but this scene reminded me so much of the magazine.
You can always depend on the most beautiful shades of azure blue in Coté Sud. All photos here down from the current issue.
Always lots of lush water views.
Interiors of Cobalt and turquoise. It must be refreshing to live here.
Endless infinity pools and of course the great wide sea to vicariously dive into.
Hi I'm Carol Gillott,
My Mom taught me watercolors at 5 and I'm still at it. Now I live on l'Ile Saint-Louis by the Seine. Do consider subscribing to my Paris letters and maps on Etsy. Enjoy a taste of Paris in your mailbox every month. Savor with hot chocolate and a croissant. I paint Paris dreams.
