Hibernation Season....

Although I am always sad to leave the long warm days of summer behind by this time of year I am more than pleased to get my blankets down from on top of my wardrobe, snuggle up and take full advantage of the lazy days of the hibernation season .... for those of you not quite ready, here are some lovely textiles to make the transition a little easier...

Geodesic Artic dome with a cob house inside.....

Geodesic Artic dome with a cob house inside

I love this 2 in one house, a geodesic dome with a cob house inside, and that view...

The house belongs to the Hjertefølgers and their 4 children, who moved in, in 2013. The geodesic dome protects the cob house and the inner garden from the elements. The inner cob home will always be okay as long as it is kept dry.

The home of..... Moon Juice's Amanda Chantal bacon

The home of Moon juice founder Amanda Chantal Bacon

What I love about Amanda Chantal Bacons L.A house is well....  pretty much everything. Its warm and relaxed, with mostly relaxing neutral tones but just enough colour to keep it interesting.

I am always excited to see pictures of the homes of what I would call 'successful hippies'. I guess this pride stems from watching films as a teenager where the 'alternative' character ends up conforming, becoming popular and bagging the bland jock character.  Yawn!

If you aren't aware of Amanda and her wonderful brand Moon Juice then you can check out her site here and her previous home featured on Moon to Moon here.

I love these lamps. My father always said they were 'student' lampshades but I love the big moon shapes glowing with a warm low watt bulb inside.

Camellas-Lloret: French Elegance

"We feel like where you live is where you should get your things—they should be authentic," Moore says of how they thrifted accents for the home from the area.

The above pictures are all from a May feature in Architectural digest and I don't know about you but after seeng these stunning Images of the stunning French house, was left wanting to learn a little more abut this calm, rustic home. A little google search quickly satisfied my thirst for more.

The beautiful home 18th Century home is situated in the centre of Montréal, a picturesque village in the Languedoc region of France and has been lovingly restored by its current owners Annie and Colin Moore

"tucked away on a medieval hilltop village in the languedoc, camellas-lloret Is a love project by annie and colin moore, who met on a train leaving paris in 1982.  together they dreamed of creating a place to celebrate and share the pleasures of french life with friends and travellers.  thirty years, three kids, and many adventures later they fell for this classic 18th-century house in an unspoiled corner of the south of france and camellas-lloret was born."

So the good news about this stunning home is that it also serves as a Bed and Breakfast. Below are some more photos from Camellas-Lloret's webpage
