As the weather gets cooler, I like to make my home cozier. Candles are a simple and beautiful way to bring in a little warmth.
Mercury glass is one of my favorite ways to brighten a room. Group them together in different shapes and sizes, and add a tea light for crystalline elegance!
A few of our favorite scented candles
Of course, the visual beauty of candles is only half the charm. Scent can play a big role in the feeling of a room, and the mood of the people in it. It can bring back fond memories, or calm you after a stressful day. For me, a great scent can make all the difference in the atmosphere of a room. We wanted to share our personal favorites:
Annette chose Marseilles Fig by Lafco. Sweet, yet warm and subtle, a great scent for any time of year. Robbie also chose a Lafco scent, Feu de Bois. Great for a cold night, this woody, smokey scent makes you feel like cuddling by the fire.
My favorite changes almost daily, but I am currently in love with Rosemary Eucalyptus by Lafco. It smells fresh, herbal, and sweetly invigorating. It is a smell that is joyful and happy, and full of memories.
So much more than art for your walls, each one of our intaglios tells a story. While going through our new arrivals, I rediscovered my love of ancient mythology. Mighty heroes, tragic muses, and powerful gods, what’s not to love?
From the tragedy of a lovelorn Aglaulus, turned to stone by the object of her affection, to the musical Apollo and his lyre. Each one, a wonderful conversation piece, and unique piece of art for your wall. It’s hard to choose a favorite!
Our shipment from the south of France has arrived, tout est très beau! A glimpse of the gorgeous pieces we’ve received:
My favorite corner of the store
The beautiful Sofia bed. Silver leaf over carved embellishments and upholstered in white linen fabric. We’ve dressed this one in gorgeous white Bella Notte bed linens. Floating overhead like two sweet dreams, a pair of antique crystal chandeliers. I get sleepy just looking at it! Fais de beaux rêves!
A variety of antique doors that make a lovely backdrop for any space.
A Louis XV style armchair, circa 1900, in it’s original aged white finish. The exposed burlap upholstery and ticking cushion give it an elegant charm.
And a sweet finishing touch, antique perfume bottles. Open them up and you can still catch a hint of the perfume that was once stored within, simply magical!
