Ten years ago, Vicki Archer bought and restored a seventeenth-century property in Saint-Remy-de-Provence, and told the story in her lushly gorgeous book, My French Life. Now, in collaboration again with photographer Carla Coulson, she shares her love of her current place of residence — Provence.

Her new book, French Essence, is definitely on my xmas wish list. Vicki — who also has

 a beautiful blog — knows how to pack a lifetime of beauty, ambience and inspiration into her stylish tomes.
