Chic Chalet

This two year renovation project of a 1870 structure is the work of Beligian decorator Lionel Jadot and is located in the town of Megéve of the French Alps. Filled with treasures from all over the world and decorated with European elements, like the Bisazza tiled kitchen, this eclectic rustic home is the perfect winter hideaway.


Chanel Pre-Fall 2013

Was there a relationship in history as dramatic and emotional as the one between Queen Elizabeth and Mary Queen of Scots? Not according to Karl Lagerfeld, who was inspired by the ill-fated Queen of Scotland when creating his pre-fall collection for Chanel. Drop-waisted kilt-pleated coats, tartan and tweed jackets, and Elizabethan ruffled necklines came down the runway in the courtyard of Linlithgow Palace in Scotland. Coco Chanel actually had close ties to Scotland and learned about tweed and knitwear from Barrie Knitwear, which recently was acquired by Chanel. Bravo, Karl, on another utterly amazing spectacle!


DIY Felt Acorns

Ever since I experimented with needle felting earlier this year, I’ve been fascinated with the plethora of potential DIYs associated with this age-old technique. After spotting felted acorns at an adorable boutique in Carmel, I quickly discovered I couldn’t achieve the look with a felting needle (Honestly, fail!) Instead it required an easier method called wet felting which simply involves some hot, soapy water. Suffice to say, I’m obsessed and can’t wait to make a bevy of these felted knickknacks!

You’ll need:

  • wool roving
  • acorn caps
  • thread
  • drill
  • hot glue gun
  • dishwashing soap
  • 2 bowls
