French Modern Decor - ohhhhh noooooo!

I don't have the names of the boutiques that had these displays - I forgot to take pix of the signs and tried to snap these on the sly as not to mortify my fellow travelers! A colleague that has been on assignment in France has commented that IKEA modern decor is the norm in the homes that she has been to visit.

NOTICE the hot pink dresser tucked into the corner? The only nod that I've seen towards what I expect of French decor were a few painted pieces of reproduction antiques painted in these hues. And the arrangements were all very, very far from what I want in my home. Statement pieces and clean lines... I'll keep searching for the France we love, maybe next time I'll find the right town with the right stores!
