French Friday #2

Welcome to French Friday where I post anything French, weather home decor, craft, recipe, experience or even French lesson.

***

I couldn't decide which theme I like for my living room. Paris or French Riviera. But my heart takes me more to the side of Riviera but still wants the elegance of Paris. 
Lately, blue is the color catches my attention. The dominant color I thought when I think of Cote d'azur where we first lived.. I'd love the sea blue, with a little beach-y accents (love beach. It is where Jon proposed to me), but I also want the French feel. Until I saw this photo from Pinterest.  


At first I was in denial that blue-ish is a boy-ish color. I gave a deep thought for it. Blue isn't so bad. This color will represent our significant time in the Riviera.
so I present to you my inspiration...

I'll call it Blue Paris





Since we already got this curtain to match the colors. Shades of soft blue and sable sand.

Got this curtain from JCpenny's clearance section. Proudly hanging in our living room.


And this souvenir painting we bought from Nice.



What is your dream theme for your living room?
