We recently painted the whole main floor of our house a fresh coat of gallery white. I can’t tell you what a difference it makes – with everything all tidy, with this beautiful clean palette. The windows are open, brunch has been served and here is a whole afternoon with a house that feels calm and bellies that are full.
We served up some French lentils ( care of Oh She Glows cookbook), bagels, smoked salmon, simple salad, quiche, mango and peach punch… and peanut butter chocolate ice cream cake for dessert.
I love my mom. And can’t wait to be one.
Whether it reminds you of your granny, of dresses from when you were three or of hundreds of years of royals, velvet is a fabric that lends pomp and circumstance to whatever it touches. A bit romantic, a bit old-fashioned, always a little bit sensual, I love the way that velvet can class-up any piece of furniture, or an outfit. When well-chosen, it’s dreamy and elevated, mysterious or regal. My favourites are lushly- upholstered slipper chairs and headboards, a nice roll-armed sofa, or in more unexpected places…

how dreamy is this New Orleans abode? I’d move here in a heart beat.
