“Every time we look behind the scenes in French kitchens, we discover an arsenal of new (and not-so-new) must-haves,” writes Margot. See a few of the things she’s coveting at 12 Favorites from the French Scullery.

Simple White Bedsheets

One of many good choices for simple white bedsheets is the Merci Milky White Cotton Fitted Sheet (available seasonally) and accompanying Milky White Cotton Flat Sheet (also available seasonally). For more options, see our post \10 Easy Pieces: Simple White Sheets.

“There is something inherently romantic about a copper kitchen sink. You can imagine washing dishes at the window of your French farmhouse kitchen and watching the copper develop a patina as generations are born and grow old,” writes Alexa. See 10 romantic copper sinks in this week’s 10 Easy Pieces post.

Margot is mesmerized by mobiles. She’s admiring sculptural pendant lights that take inspiration from Calder—and in many cases come with moving parts that dance in the breeze. See more in Trend Alert: The New Mobile Pendant Light, 12 Examples.
