Provencal style is all about raw, natural and pure Provence: lavender, peach, orange. Very creative, they stayed with their original simplicity and originality. Preserving is a motto of the people of Provence, in every way. It's so inspirational to go trough flee markets and village stores. They are so unique and different.

Vancouver's Main Street finds
Charming Main Street always beets a battle with Commercial Drive for that "coolest place in town". For me there is a significant difference. Main Street is as a piece of art itself, because every store and every cafe is enthusiastic and burning with one idea to be unique, original and sophisticated. And is so successful in that! Commercial Drive has its laid back and "comuna" feel on its own, and that energy is so unbeatable.
