C’EST COOL #11 – CHRISTMAS

This week feels already like Christmas and I wanted to share with you some inspiration for the days to come. Christmas is my favorite holiday, I love spending time with my family, looking for the perfect gift, printing nice cards, thinking about our Christmas Eve menu, decorating my home with garlands, candles and wreaths. The big day always comes too quickly.

+ Candles to illuminate your evenings
The days are getting darker and darker and I like to light up some candles at the end of the afternoon. It is also traditional to do an Advent wreath with 4 candles each symbolizing a week before Christmas. You light them up as the weeks go by, one each sunday.

I love natural wreaths, wild or sophisticated, they always charm me.

+ Natural gift wrappings
I love brown paper for my wrapping with some branches or nice cards. Why not add a cute family photo ?

November Mood

NovemberMood-01

I know, we are december 1st and it’s a bit late to be sharing my november mood. But I think that it has a Christmas feel to it so it might be appropriate after all.
In november, I longed for comfort, coziness and “hygge” as they call it in Scandinavia. If I had a fireplace, I would spend my day getting warm by the fire, drinking tea. I decorated my home with furry throws, light candles at the end of the day, dressed my interior with winter branches and dreamed of snowy landscapes.
I hope this will inspire you as well.

PS : If you are near Bordeaux and you are looking for beautiful flowers, wreaths and festive decorations, I recommend you go to Acanthe in Libourne, where the eucalyptus came from. You will find designer furnitures, home decorations and textiles as well.

October Mood

AutumnMood-01

In october my living-room has taken its Fall colors : mustard, copper, coffee. It’s the time of the year when you start spending more time at home, sipping hot chocolate under a cosy blanket, lighting scented candles, redecorating small items to prepare your home for the cold months to come.
Here is a small selection for a warm Fall evening, I hope you’ll like it.
