Hello and Happy Weekend!
I’m enjoying a beautiful day…golden California sunshine against a cloudless bright blue sky and temperatures in the mid 80’s. Although it’s mid November, it hasn’t been cold enough yet, to wear my cozy cable knit nor my merino wool sweaters. And lately, I’ve been dreaming of owning a small vacation home perhaps on the East coast…where four seasons truly exist.
I spent a wonderful morning out with my darling husband which is quite rare. We visited a favorite cafe and I ate my first slice of pumpkin pie of the holiday season. And I’ve been downright undisciplined in my consumption of egg nog (more on this later).
Later tonight, we’ll snuggle on the sofa and watch Veronica Lake in the film noir classic, This Gun for Hire. I find weekends filled with simple and lovely pleasures are the most leisured and relaxing.
I wish you a wonderful weekend filled with joy. Cheers!

“I think the house is a very intimate place, it reveals a part of our personality. Most of the furniture comes from my family, or that of my husband, they tell a story: ours,” as former model and interior designer Malin Persson shared with writer Chloé Dalibon.
Built in 1908, Persson and her Italian husband made extensive renovations to their light-filled and spacious home located near the sea in Southern Sweden. Although renovations lasted nearly 3 years, they kept some charming and lush details that captivated their hearts such as the ceilings, doors, and staircase.
