Explore the French Riviera: Nice

Once an Italian beach town, Nice mixes Italian and French flavors. By 1860, it was a French city. Now, among sherbet-hued buildings and sun-soaked stone beaches, there is character everywhere. Sea salted buildings show their age beneath the color, pastel buildings glisten in the sunlight, and the bluest ocean fades into blue skies. Coined the Côte d’Azur, or ‘blue ocean’, the name couldn’t be more fitting with 300 days of sunshine per year. With year-round sun, Mediterranean Sea, and some of the best museums, Nice buzzes with a bright energy of quaint beach town and unbelievable light. On the to-do list: people-watch, lounge on the stone beaches of Nice, take in the Alps-to-Mediterranean surroundings, and admire the Crayola-colored buildings. WHAT TO DO:  • Catch the Sunset on Castle Hill • Get ice cream at Fennochio’s for a selection between 93 flavors!

Entrancing Entrances

Nothing welcomes guests quite like a bold doorway. A pop of mustard yellow, cyan or crimson demands attention. While rooms involve multiple elements to match, exteriors typically have few, making front doors the ideal place to make a statement with bold hues. Whether you give the door itself a vivid tint or dress up it’s surroundings with bright flowers or bold patterns, make your entrance seize attention. Since doors are commonly plain wood, bright and colorful doors grasp eyesight. These four entry palettes lure me in, like the vibrant pink door along a light, cream canvas. I particularly appreciate the Moroccan tile framing a distressed wood door. How would you customize your entryway? 1 / 2 / 3 / 4
