Interior Design Inspiration: Provence Style in Provo, Utah

Ive fallen in love. With a house.

Beautiful French Nordic living room of Desiree of Decor de Provence

Just when you think you’ve seen every beautiful home between Cali and Bali on the web, a gem with a French accent in Utah is revealed on a talented photographer’s blog.

Ashlee Raubach does incredible architectural photography in addition to portraits.

The new European (beachy!) inspired home belongs to designer/blogger Desiree, whose blog decor de provence is as breathtaking as her home.

Attention to detail, Bouvet hardware, authentic period light fixtures, and creamy white rocked my world. Add to that: dreamy blues and greens and a natural vibe where everything is impeccable without shouting or showing off.

The stone exterior is exquisite, and the symmetry…omg…DIVINE.

{BTW, the initial vision we had for our present home was a one-and-a-half story European stone cottage (not unlike the center section of this stunning home). Since our builder insisted we must blend with the other two-story homes in the neighborhood, the little cottage evolved into something a little less charming than our vision…still working on it.}

The Ashworth’s romantic inspiring home proves clean, airy, and spare can read WARM. It provides more than a few fabulous architectural ideas as we dream about our next construction project!

Thank you, Ashlee and Desiree for graciously sharing a peek at this lovely home.

    Honestly I could have gushed for pages more (i.e. your grey stained/painted doors and trim? genius!). I'm a dreamer! So fun to find common ground–thx for reading!
