Around this time of year, it seems that everyone is fleeing the frigid temperatures here in favour of aa warm escape or to their own cozy cottage escape. While I haven't been able to indulge in a small escape (can't really complain -I had my long break in December), I've enjoyed indulging in a little virtual escape through the beautiful book Modern Country by well known interior design writer Caroline Clifton-Mogg. Capturing beautiful cottages and country homes in France, this book shares some beautiful inspiration on how to marry rustic, country features and structures with clean modern design. Drawing from the archives of French magazines Cote Sud, Cote Est and Cote Ouest this beautiful book shares several stunning spaces from their archives and give a much needed little break from the wintry temperatures outside and a big dose of inspiring French laid back style.
