damn you french people!!!

how do they do it so well? how do they combine function and style effortlessly? i'll bet you could hand them a steaming pile of crap and they would fashion it into a scarf or a painting. i'm not saying i love all of the spaces below, i don't. but come on!! style..meet practicality. and does it seem to you that they probably scoff at the idea of an interior decorator? instead knowing in their innately arrogant way that they simply don't need one.
