some of you might remember alice naylor-leyland’s english countryside home that was recently published in architectural digest. i did a post on it/ see here. alice has fantastic style…it’s old school meets fantasy. she loves color, she loves pattern, she loves pretty things. did a tour of her house for christmas. not a surprise, it’s a christmas fantasy. enjoy the tour….and i have a feeling her house with or without decoration, always feels like christmas. 

isn’t it refreshing seeing a young lady today that loves tradition and pretty things? i think so.
