Who ever said that there was no such thing as a magic carpet ride?

Welcome to Marguerite's

Welcome to Marguerite’s

I get to take one every time I visit a unique home décor boutique in Cotignac Provence village! Marguerite’s boutique lures shopper’s inside with the petite sign at her front window ,”La vie est Belle.” This enticing front window display also shouts – get your Zen in gear! Various Buddha figures in all shapes and sizes, enchant with their ever present message of calmness and relaxation.

I love all of the polka dotted, red and white chicken figures. It would not be traditional Provence without chickens or Roosters to add to your shopping fun!  The shop’s outside terrace is decorated with benches, tables, stone statuary and ceramic wall plaques. Vineyard items, olive grove souvenirs and flighty geckos are found in the shop with recurrent themes. Wooden farm tables, silk poppy flowers, crystal and silver serving items decorate table tops. French linens and torchons (dish towels) are scattered all over with wine buckets and decanters.

The shop is a renovated 300 year old townhouse with red floor ”tomettes” (tiles), winding staircases and small tunnel like rooms. Duck when you enter and then hang on for that magic carpet ride that takes you to the near East and traditional Provence, as you step into each themed alcove of hand selected home décor!
