Before I start, a quick reminder that my book and fragrance drawing and giveaway is still in full swing. don’t forget to enter your name here if you are interested!
First, a brief reminder that my book and perfume sample giveaway draw is still open. Every year, at the medieval conference in Kalamazoo, I attend a very civilized dinner at the home of a professor emeritus. He and his wife have spent over 50 years perfecting this home, and I think I can say it is one of the best curated, most beautiful homes I have ever had the pleasure to see. Unfortunately, this professor’s wife died suddenly a few years back, and every year since, I have feared that these polite, delicious dinners, filled with wonderful food and urbane conversation, will come to an end.
SO this year, I documented my favorite parts of the house by taking snapshots. This is not in any way a fragrance post, but it certainly has a lot to do with the art of living an aesthetically full life.
As you can see, the sitting room is very beautiful, the piece de resistance being a hand-painted Chinese screen that hangs above the couch.
My favorite room of all may be the kitchen, with its marble counters, hand built shelving, and interesting implements hung on the wall
some perfect coffee ends a perfect night
I almost forgot to mention:
I am afraid my snapshots haven’t done this beautiful home justice, and end up looking like a real estate ad, but I just had to document it anyway. I hope someday I too can create a home as beautiful as this.
here’s wishing you an aesthetically-pleasing day,
-La Bonne Vivante
