There are so many different things to love about French architecture, because it can have so many different styles. There's the Haussmannization of Paris, the Rococo period, the grandiose Baroque style of Versailles, the Gothic cathedrals, and then there's the simple little touches, like shutters on the outside of an ivy-covered cottage in Provence. Shutters are one of my absolute favorite aspects of a French town, and I can't resist taking photos of them. Here are some my favorite finds that I've taken pictures of around France:

Generally, I think shutters work best in the atmosphere of a small town. What is your favorite aspect of French architecture? Personally, I wouldn't mind one of those wrought-iron balconies, either...
