Dedicated to simple decor ideas - especially in white! - inspiration for living simply, reusing what you have, and scouring for vintage or thrifted finds. Some of my own DIY projects described here too.

Ever since I saw the cover, and blogged about Josephine Ryan's French Home, I've been lusting after this chandelier, which I found at a local shop. Its rather interesting to me now, how some things can look so fabulous in a book, snapped by a photographer, and in France, of course, compared to one's 'standard apartment.'
Its quite large! So large, my hubby was walking into it while it hung in our living room apartment. (Sadly, he also started calling it a bee hive.) It really needs a high ceiling, or a light filled kitchen over a table so that it need not need to be turned on! Just like its pictured in the book. So I hum and haw if it will work on the patio, and if it should be placed on craigslist. Then I wonder if all would be better at least with candles, and perhaps a few crystals, like in the book, of course! What do you think?
As a sociologist, I have always been interested in how our we are affected by what surrounds us. Our home is so deeply personal, and has such potential to give us happiness, calm, and refuge. Home has become even more important to me since becoming a mother of 2. Currently, I adore homes that play with light, white, texture, nature and bits of colour.
These days blogging happens when my hubby is on holidays and get a sense of renewed energy and creativity to carry on.
