Simple Pleasures

Something to look forward to every autumn — the amazing variety of colours and shapes of gourds, squash and pumpkins.

Quiet Style in The Netherlands

Located in the town of Alphen aan den Rijn in the Netherlands, the airy semi-detached villa of Anita and her family is designed to be a calm retreat from the stresses of the day. I love the little vignettes everywhere — so pretty. More here on vtwonen.

An Eclectic Madrid Loft

Admiring the stunning Madrid loft of Manolo Yllera, the renowned Spanish interior photographer. Love the great mix of industrial and vintage finds, all beautifully set off by the roughly textured white background. What an eye. More here on Trendland.

Happy weekend! Hope it's a lovely one. Looking forward to a fairly leisurely one here —apple pancakes for brunch are the most ambitious plans at the moment. Enjoy your own.

French Style, Simply

Interior designer Jacqueline Morabito's elegantly pared-down 18th century home in St-Paul-de-Vence, Provence is a perfect reflection of her design philosophy — one of harmony, balance, and a respectful reference to the past. Her space is a seamless blend of antiques, contemporary classics and Morabito's own designs as well. Beautiful. More here on The Telegraph.

Moments of Beauty

It's at this time of year that I really begin to notice the soft light at dusk, as the days grow gradually shorter. A bittersweet farewell to summer, but a welcome to the warm rituals of autumn, too.
