Every year, Chanel is always my favorite.  
Now, I just want to say, I love this fufu pink dress below. Imagine how many *hours* were spent making all of those ruffles? Also, did you know the model is the daughter of Johnny Depp/Vanessa Paradis? It seems the children of celebrities are all getting modeling gigs.

Meyer Lemon Tart

One of the things I love most about living in California is the ability to walk out to our garden and pick fresh citrus during the middle of Winter!
We have a Meyer lemon tree and it is *wonderful*.

Wall Mounted Faucets in the Powder Room

For my regular readers, you may have noticed that I have not written about our French farmhouse building progress in a while.  This is mainly because there was delay after delay and I was becoming very unexcited about the whole thing.  No one seemed to be in a hurry, so why should I?

Well things have finally progressed, ground has moved, etc. It is quite boring to post pictures of concrete and framing.  So instead, let's look at wall mounted faucets for the powder room.

A Christopher Peacock Kitchen and Ice Box Hardware

Let's talk about kitchens.
I have to make some choices regarding my entire kitchen soon.  I have actually saved these pictures for months but decided to turn to them again recently as the housing project moves along.
We went to the Christopher Peacock showroom and I fell in love with the scullery kitchen. 
I really liked the kitchen hood.

Easy Hike in Switzerland in the Bernese Oberland

For those of you that regularly follow my blog, you may know that I visited Switzerland in the Fall of 2016.  I have not yet had a chance to write about my trip because I love writing about Fall and Christmas decorating. 
Now, though, in the middle of Winter, I thought it would be a perfect time to write about my trip!

Pretty Decor is BACK in 2017

Let's talk about some design trends coming back for 2017, specifically, the return of pretty decor.
Pretty is timeless and never goes out of style. Pretty is soft, soothing, feminine. Pretty is not bold, jarring, or unsettling.
I predict we will be seeing the return of more pretty traditional decor this year.  In a year when people feel uncertain about the future, people will be looking for comfort and coziness in their homes.  They want to feel safe. But it is 2017, so it will be pretty traditional decor - with a twist!
