A Chic Parisian Apartment

Two designers Gilles & Boissier live in this very stylish apartment in Paris….I love how they mixed classic and contemporary elements together and how everything seems to just work together!!!. They didn’t stop at mixing contemporary and classic styles but they even mixed designer’s items with stuff found at flea markets…. By doing so they made the apartment feel so personal…. so them!!!


Christmas Card Display Idea

Wouldn’t it be sweet to have breakfast under a cloud of warm holiday wishes?

House & Garden featured this display of cards, from Arper Clerkenwell in London. This installation is “made up from dozens of cards with pictures of Arper’s furniture designs, logos, and product description”, but I thought it would be a great idea to make as part of your Christmas decorations…. you could make it with holiday cards and fishing wire….I think if they are packed away carefully, those hanging garlands would be easy to add to year after year….Love the idea of seeing streams of cards grow and grow over the years 🙂

Book Of the Week: How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

There is something truly magical about Christmas stories… My kids just love reading them over and over again…. This story, in particular, is a favorite …. maybe because they are Dr.Suess fans or maybe because they just love the movie so much!!!…who knows!!!


Dr. Suess writes a whimsical Christmas tale in his word-play style that everyone always enjoys…..The Grinch hates Christmas and wants to stop it from coming. So he forms a devious plan: to impersonate Santa Claus and steal Christmas presents. But to his amazement, he did not stop Christmas from coming!….. He realizes something new. That maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. That maybe Christmas . . . perhaps . . . means a little bit more!


The Love Affair Between Anna Wintour And Fur!

Winter always makes me think of fur… well that and hot chocolate of course!!! But mostly fur!!! 😉

And whenever I think of fur I think of Anna Wintour because let me tell you, no one does winter chic better than Wintour!… here are my favorites throughout the years (notice the 1st and last pictures are of the same fur coat… I had to put it twice because it looked so good on her!)


Laight Street Loft by DHD Architecture

I am in love with the white painted brick, the white beams, and the black floors…. I mean what a combination right?. A lot of people may see a black and white combination as cold and maybe a bit boring but I think that in this setting it makes perfect sense because it provides a blank canvas for art… It allows the art as well as the furnishings to breath and stands out…. Love it!
