This is my new mantra for my life. Gardens, interiors… myself – all could benefit from striving for this without going beyond. I discovered the phrase will looking about for inspiration for my entry way and browsing French interiors online as a possibility. While I thought I had borrowed the phrase directly it turns out that my brain did some mental adjusting to the original “relaxed, luxurious, and often ramshackle” found in a Telegraph article (the video section). So I guess this is my very own interpretation but it fits well. It’s good to have a touchstone for reference to keep things on track. I look forward to spaces and experiences that are just that: relaxed, elegant, and slightly dilapidated.
