French Elegance

I'm really loving vintage clocks and trunks. They just add a simple touch of Frenchness into a room.

These vintage clocks would look fabulous displayed up on a mantel, whether by themselves or with a cluster of vintage clocks collection.

This lovely romantic clock below can be found at lauraashley.com

I love everything about this vintage clock, from the faded and old look, the chipped cream and gray paint, the soft pink roses gracing the center, the French words, and the Greek numbers. I just simply adore this vintage piece.

I adore suitcases and trunks because they are such a lovely display and can house as a storage spot as well. Isn't this flower painted suitcase just adorable?

(I forgot where I found this image.)

And big trunks like the ones below can be used creatively as a sturdy coffee table.

(Find these lovely trunks at Great Room Decor.)

(I think I found this at one of my reading bloglist. I can't quite remember.)
