Oh French Essence…its my absolute favorite blog. Vicki Archer, the wonderful author, has this to say:
“I am an Australian writer who lives between London and Saint Rémy de Provence in southern France. I adore everything to do with life in France and especially the olive farm I call home. Born and raised in Australia, my first overseas trip to Paris at the age of ten sparked a passion for travel and adventure that has never ceased. In the last twenty years I have traveled extensively throughout France and become enamored with the French way of life. My first book, MY FRENCH LIFE, was published in 2006 and FRENCH ESSENCE, the second, in 2009. This blog is for those, like me, who are mad for fashion, interiors and all things French.”
Vicki is both an amazing author and has a great sense of the French people as well as their style. She recently renovated a house in Provence with her husband which has been incredible to watch the transformation of the home.
Through French Essence I have come to follow two other blogs,
Carla Coulson a photographer who is also based in Paris-she’s incredible.
and Renovating Italy the story of an Australian family that realized their dream to move to Italy and renovate a tumble down home.
