Today is Pink Saturday. Do stop by Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound for links to other pink posts!
Today I take you to Petoskey, Michigan. Or, to be specific, highway 119, between Petoskey and Harbor Springs.
My favorite shop there is called Joie de Vie. Joie de Vie focuses on French country antiques and home accessories, with an inventory a tad too pricey for my blood, but not for my senses!
Of course, one of the most delightful things about visiting is just looking at their beautiful exterior!
I love the palette -- rich pink stucco walls, brilliant blue shutters, deep green ivy.
Those hot pink walls with antique lights are highlighted by the ivy that climbs wildly over the two stories. It reminds me of the buildings I saw while I was in France. I'd like to say that's why I love it so much, but I've loved this building and shop for many years!
The side of the building is a bright pink as well.
And there are enormous boxes overflowing with hot-pink impatiens.
The windows have laced curtains, difficult to see from outside, but I can tell you, they are equally lovely inside!
Here are a few other views! Enjoy!
