a oui roundup: my french table

by Grace Bonney

i’m sorry, it’s friday and my brain is fried so please forgive the terrible pun in this post’s title. i think the heat is starting to melt my brain and puns seem like a good idea today. to counteract the heat i’ve been watching movies and clips online of amelie, trying to imagine what life would be somewhere beautiful, cool, and with a constant dreamy breeze. so i thought i’d build a tiny roundup of things that would live on my amelie-inspired french table. even if none of these items ever live in my home, i still like to close my eyes and imagine bringing bread to the table in a market bag and then eating brioche off of one of nathalie lete’s painted plates. au revoir!
