TWO LOVELY THINGS : freshly fallen snow and a tabletop straight out of a fairytale winter wonderland, with whites and creams and silvery hues, roses and glitter and bits of gold . . .

AT THIS IS GLAMOROUS : ENORMOUSLY EXCITING NEWS . . .

at this is glamorous : ENORMOUSLY EXCITING NEWS

SOME MAY REMEMBER references here & there over the past while, to two exciting things to come, and some have already found their way to the news through various channels in the past few days, but today, and at very long last, the first of these . . .

When TIG began there were two readers -- my sister and a close friend -- but it was not long until something amazing happened -- strangers wandered here, strangers who would become regular readers who began their mornings here with coffee, strangers who would become friends and confidantes and secret-keepers, advice-givers and well-wishers and who would become the very bones of this site, and many, many of these are still here since the very beginning.  There have also been extravagantly lovely contributors, love stories and a travel seriesinterviews and so much more, and there are not enough words for how much it all means, your stopping by all this time, and so, a million thank you's will have to do . . .

And also through it all, there has been one person who has never left my side, who has been supportive through the long hours and late nights, and has always, always been there through anything and everything.  Over the past year or so, we have begun collaborating here, at TIG, on a few projects, art direction and styling and [mostly his] beautiful photography, but even before that, over two years ago, we had begun working together on our biggest project yet, and since we are already quite inseparable, had thought we might as well [officially] work together as well, and so, here it is, at long last, our labour of love and grandest adventure yet --->

LAST YEAR'S TREE was a flurry of tartan ribbons and fairy lights.  This year, there may be leopard print, and there definitely will be gold, but after coming across the photo by stylist Selina Lake, somewhere, there simply must be pink . . .

HAPPILY STUMBLED ACROSS these enchanting backstage photographs by Billy Nava, backstage at Armani Privé in Paris Fall/Winter 2013 -- the soft and palest pinks and powdery blues and crystal-embellished snow whites could not be more perfect for holiday festivities and beautiful soirées . . .

Rachel A. Clingen Wedding And Event Design

PERHAPS A LITTLE CHILLY but exceptionally beautiful nonetheless, like a fairytale with snow queens and ice princesses -- isn't this table setting utterly enchanting?  A little cross country skiing after dinner, followed by après-ski, or perhaps, even better, sitting cosy in cable knits with champagne by fire . . .

"The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?"
—J. B. Priestley

{holiday inspiration | simple pleasures : coffee, little luxuries & the first snowfall}

. . . and while it has been much too warm for the first snowfall, our Christmas mood these days has us terribly excited for when [& if] it does happen, for the very silence of its fall, for the crackling the fire makes on cosy evenings, the way the scents of a million lit candles fill the room, the flickering of fairy lights, and the time spent amongst the garlands and golden tinsel with friends and family . . .

{design inspiration | collections : trunk locks by moynat, paris}

CAME ACROSS THIS COLLECTION of patented trunk locks this morning, by Moynat, one of the oldest French trunk-makers (1849) and one of the very first leather goods houses of its day.  Their first atelier was open in Paris by trunk-makers Octavie and François Coulembier.

THERE IS TWEED EVERYWHERE -- Harris Tweed on a notebook, wool tartan on chinoiserie chairs, and in the closet, even more so -- coats and blazers and pleated skirts, paired with warm knits and the softest cashmere, gold and nude, and best of all, with leopard and with lace . . .

{notes from the weekend, a recipe & a few lovely links}

SATURDAY NIGHT we held a dinner party for family—holiday chocolates and short bread and sparkling wine, lamb kofta was on the menu, a cheese and chorizo plate to start, and homemade ice cream sandwiches for dessert—and it was just so lovely to spend time catching up again, for it had been far too long.  And such evenings have a way of putting ine in a holiday mood, especially after last night's stop by holiday festivities in the square, glittery trees and carousels and drinks en plein air . . . simply can not wait for Christmastime in the city . . .

Happy, happy Monday! Hope you've had an extravagantly lovely weekend, and that your week is off to a perfect start, —Roséline xo

{site news | give-away : always for love & the winner is . . .}

HAD THE MOST LOVELIEST TIME reading through all of the beautiful thoughts on what you would do if you had time, in answer to the question posed for the most recent give-away.  There were wistful thoughts and new resolve, and wishes to spend more time practicing playing music and to write, for DIY and crafting projects and to just be creative in general, for sewing and cooking and painting and French lessons, photography and browsing art galleries and picnics in the park; others hoped for more time to be in the moment and to dream, and many wanted more time to read, to see more of friends and family who live far away; and it would also seem that many do not have the chance to spend enough time with husbands, what with work and children and life; but overwhelming, most wanted more time to travel . . .

{current trends : autumn style inspiration : the fedora hat}

On rainy autumn mornings, when a seemingly perfect outfit is lacking that little accessory to complete it, putting on a fedora hat in any neutral tone, from beige to marl grey, will do the job for you. Whether worn with a crisp white knit sweater, a pair of grey jeans and the statement tote bag for a chic nonchalant look, or with a tailored black blazer and an oversized blue shirt for a more structured ensemble, the fedora is an essential for fall . . .

{current trends : autumn style inspiration : the fedora hat}

Wear the classic grey fedora with a cashmere sweater by Burberry, and a marl grey tee.

THE IMAGE FOLDERS on the iMac have become insanely unruly, with mislabels and loose photos that never made it into their proper folders, and others that have gone missing and have proven nearly impossibly to find through regular searches.  This desktop chaos, however, also has its advantages, for in the search for a very specific folder of images from the summer, came across a few beautiful photos that had been saving over the past the few weeks . . .

THE LEAVES HAVE ALL turned golden and billowed off the trees, falling, falling and there is an undeniable crispness in the morning air, and not evening goes by without thought of a fire or candles lit, and there's just something a little romantic and cosy about the days now.  Yesterday [the entire week, in fact] was filled with work on an enormous project that have been working for the past two years or so now, and there is more inspiration here, before the week is through, but for now, shades of autumn in warm wood, faux fur, and umber . . .

{arts & culture | at the gallery : paintings by laurence amélie}
. . . came across some truly beautiful artwork by French artist Laurence Amélie, painted in an impressionist fashion, leaving free access to imagination, little brushstroke accidents and improvisations which go where one's conscience doesn't expect it to, but the subconscious delights. In the artist's words, "each canvas, receiving layers of colors and washes, ends up almost acquiring its soul." Whilst the paintings' visual delicacy delights the eye, their well thought out colour scheme makes them an incredible asset to an office or living room, perfectly combining with minimalist black & white interiors, and maximalist ones in beautiful gilded frames.
