{two lovely things : shades of blush & champagne}

. . . and it feels as if things were in a quiet lull, in that very small place in time just before everything happens at once, the calm before the storm; there are a few features that have been in the works for a while now, and some new interviews and at least three very enormous, extravagantly exciting projects still to come, but for now, amidst the peonies and candlelight, shall bask in the calm and in shades of blush and champagne before it all begins again . . .

. . . vogue recently ran a feature of the best summer homes from their archives, and since it has already been billowing with blossoms around here lately, simply could not resist adding a few more to the mix . . .

. . . and while on the topic of palm trees, came across the work of sonya khegay, a lifestyle, portrait and wedding photographer based in montenegro, on instagram the other day, and fell immediately in love with the breakfasts and blossoms and bright blue skies, and of course, the palm trees . . .

{at this moment | things : the importance of palm trees}

. . . my experience with palm trees extends from florida to barbados and st. lucia, but it has been a very long time since have seen another -- a situation that must be remedied at once, as there is something so very festive about them -- sandy beaches and reckless abandon, the sound of waves and romantic flings -- almost as if their very presence is the meaning of summertime . . .

. . . and it has been nearly and only one week since have been home, and it has already been the best week ever, for, while travel is always wonderful, being oceans apart is not, and being reunited once again with someone who loves you more than anything is everything.  Yesterday was a sunny, breezy Saturday, and we spent the day picnicking in the garden; and there were figs and elderflower pressé, fallen petals on the lush green grass and the sounds of birds, always birds, filling the air; we were barefoot and warm and happy.  And later that afternoon, roamed about the city and the romance of cobblestone streets, falling easily in step amidst the manicured lawns and glittering lakes with carelessly drifting swans; there would be a dinner reservation at a new restaurant and oysters, followed by a film [The Great Gatsby] at the cinema, and a leisurely walk home, still light, despite the late hour, in the late-May sunset . . .

hope you're having an impossibly romantic [long] weekend, and that it's beautiful where you are,

cool-classical
{décor inspiration | interior designer : jean-louis denoit, paris}

This week's décor inspiration is the work of Parisian architect & interior designer, Jean-Louis Deniot, whose style can be best described as new or cool classical, and who often references the designs of Adolph Loos for "exactness", Dorothy Draper for "the theatrical side to her design", Renzo Mongiardino for his "collector's spirit", and Peter Marino for "couture-style luxury".  Although a decidedly diverse mix of styles, there is a shared concept of design that is "synonymous with architectural environments, refinements, and a love of noble materials and objects" . . .

. . . recently came across the new collection from twigs & honey, and positively fell in love with every single beautiful piece, especially the apple blossom branch, above, and would most definitely wear any one of them on a regular day at the office, with skinny jeans & heels, and even for errands to supermarket or flower shops . . .

{HOW TO | the top fifteen best DIYs of the moment}

. . . lately, there has not been much time for DIY projects, but the last successful one involved the gold leafing of picture frames for the powder room and above the fireplace mantle, [which lead to getting a little carried away and a gold-leafed scanner], and so, for upcoming late-spring weekends after morning coffee : fifteen [15] of the best DIY projects from around the interwebs . . .

{style inspiration | at the office : the classic trench & a side ponytail}

. . . and it seems that everyone simply can not get enough of trench coats lately, with the spring weather changing with the moment, overcast skies one minute, and sunlit in cherry blossoms the next, and a classic trench for the office is always perfect, and even better when paired with a playful and slightly tousled side ponytail . . .

{p.s.} a shopping guide & would also look lovely with a side chignon

{home again & a brand new week}

On a Tuesday, that feels like a Monday, hello, hello!  -- for a day was lost to travel late Sunday night, and after yesterday's early morning arrival, it's home again, home again!  The time back, so far, has been spent in romance and along lakes and rolling hills, an afternoon picnic and treelined countryside drives . . .  And now, after over a month away, as you can imagine, there's much to catch up on, and so, it's back to work and a brand new week . . .

Hope you had a beautiful weekend and that your week is off to a perfect start, —Roséline xo

. . . and while on the topic, for those that do not have instagram, a few glimpses of the past days and weeks, of peonies and gilded galleries, coffee and macarons and fountains in hazy afternoon light, neo-classical architecture and saturday morning markets, and most of all, everything spilling over in pink blossoms like a fairytale . . .
