French indulgence

It's Bastille Day, and much like everyone uses Saint Patrick’s Day as an excuse to finish work early and start drinking, Bastille Day gives you the excuse to indulge in copious amounts of wine, cheese, croissants and even perhaps the occasional escargot. It’s also the chance to indulge in some beautiful French interior design. When it comes to a sense of style, the French certainly seem to possess it in bulk and these examples from French interior designers Pierre Emmanuel Martin and Stephane Garotin, which blend everything from medieval to modern, demonstrate.
