this week there’s been a theme to my posts. yes, of course the holidays are top of mind, but so is white, the color of winter and of snow.

my last post was on ivory rooms that evoke the holiday spirit. a few of the rooms that i featured were rooms from hubert de givenchy’s renaissance castle, chateau du jonchet, in the french country side.

all of hubert’s homes are favorites, i could move into any of them and never turn back. in my dreams, jonchet would be my winter home, and probably where i’d spend christmas. next year, you must come visit!

merry, merry everyone! i hope you enjoy christmas!
