Our friends ordered this bean bag from Restoration Hardware, and love it. We’re in the market for one, and now that I’ve started looking at faux fur bean bags, it seems like it’s a real thing this season…West Elm, Pottery Barn….they all have them. This one from RH doesn’t have a slipcover you can take […]


Last year we were at a lovely rental in the Dordogne, the Chateau de la Bourlie, and the homeowner showed us one of his latest rental projects, Les Bories. We love the way he used inexpensive pallets to make very moveable furniture. Some were stacked to become extra bed platforms, some to make a coffee […]

hanging wall plant

I saw this felt wall planter at a doctor’s office recently, and thought–what a great idea to get one of these, or maybe just tell my urban green thumb friends–who have plants scattered around the house–about it.

I was in one of the most elegant antique stores I’ve ever been in, owned by the chicest French woman. There were lit scented candles (with no label on them) throughout the store, and it smelled amazing. I saw a boxed candle from Cire Truedon, which I know are outrageously priced, so I asked her […]
