Simple Pleasures

The fragrant aroma of baking (and the eating of said baking, too). The delectable pear tartlets were photographed by the wonderful Ellen Silverman.

Nine Days of Noël : Shimmer

A pretty and unusual take on decorating one's front door for the holidays — "c'est noël" spelled out in gilded papier maché letters. Scanned from a vintage copy of Marie Claire Maison.

Feminine and Fun

The pretty and spacious loft apartment of Odile Veillon is located in a beautiful former furniture workshop in Paris. When she first viewed the space, the entire loft was in poor shape and needed to be renovated from scratch — the oak flooring and the radiators were the only things that could be salvaged. But despite the daunting amount of work needed, it was the generous light from the south-facing windows, the high ceilings, the splendid courtyard view outside and the great neighborhood that sold Odile and her family on the space. After the labour of installing interior walls, a kitchen and a bathroom was done, a quiet and airy home was the happy result for all to enjoy. See more photos of Odile's loft here. Via Côté Maison.
