Inspiration: Noël en Provence








Select touches of magic and Christmas.

As we prepare for Christmas and are decorating our homes, there is an abundance of inspiration to look at... some homes have been carefully decorated, with no surface left amiss of at least a bit of Christmas, as where others are decorated in a more sparing manor, with few select touches for impact. This scalable home, Ansouis Castle located in Provence, adds magic with little, though creates a lot of feeling. Perhaps this is because the home itself, beautifully decorated throughout the year, is on the more decorative side of style, and with a few touches, looks Christmas ready. Aren't the candles throughout beautiful?

  4. What a spot Sarah and just adore the candles along the staircase. This place reminds me very much of a place we had lunch along the Amalfi Coast.........as usual when I travel, I want to more there! But then again, who wouldn't? Hope your holiday and gift wrapping preprations are going beautifully. I am sure a wrapped gift from you is divine. XO

  6. I've been saving that first image myself, Sarah. It's magical. And you are so right, the candles, lights and little touches here and there are more than enough to make this home ready for Christmas. :)
