The Mill House

























A serene home has been created in a renovated mill. The stone structure, with its neutral palette and wood elements, evoke a timeless feel, while the mix of vintage and classic furnishings add style and comfort. What a warm and elegant place to call home.

Fab Frock Friday: Charlize Theron in Dior

 ***

 ***


For this week's edition of FFF, we have Charlize Theron wearing a pale pink assymetrical gown by Christian Dior, on the red carpet for the 2012 Golden Globe Awards ceremony.

She looks radiant as ever in this pale hue. There is something alluringly unexpected about the silhouette of this gown, and the soft pink shade keeps the look very subtle and elegant. I always love the designs from the house of Dior, and this dress is no exception.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Wedding Wednesday: Claire Pettibone Fall 2012


















Happy Wedding Wednesday!

I know I'm a little late in posting this, but I figure it is still Wednesday in much of the world, so it's all right.


I love the romantic, delicate lace gowns in this Fall 2012 bridal collection by Claire Pettibone. 


These gowns bring to mind lounging ladies in old paintings... the sort of beauties which inspired countless love poems....

How about building a simple shed, adding a glass-enclosed bedroom, in the woods, overlooking a beautiful lake? That is precisely what Avanto Architects and Linda Bergroth designed, for Kekkil√§ Garden in Finland. 

I'd love to spend the night in this lovely "garden shed", wouldn't you? Imagine the peaceful feeling of being surrounded by trees and water, and seeing stars overhead at night. It would be amazing!
