Flowers From the Heart

We Heart Roses

Happy Summer!  With two trips to up to Maine and back this week, we’re looking forward to a quiet weekend moving our belongings back into our house (yes, our construction project is finally DONE!)  And hopefully, if the weather cooperates, you’ll find us outside escaping paint and varnish fumes enjoying a garden full of blooms…

Poised and Pretty

Have you discovered Styling yet?  It’s an Australian online magazine created by the amazingly talented Coty Farquhar featuring homes, fashion and artists from around the world.  We were thrilled to see My French Country Home‘s Sharon Santoni as a contributor and photographer in this month’s issue and can only dream to have a back yard like the one she profiles in its pages.  Then again, we don’t live in a chateau in Normandy!

Sadly, we won’t be shopping Maison et Objet this week as we’re getting ready to show our own Spring/Summer 2010 collection here in New York.  Not only will we miss seeing the latest and greatest in home decor trends, but we won’t have a chance to visit our friends and their lovely country homes.  While their gardens aren’t as pretty in late January as they are in early summer, there’s something so peaceful about their unstructured elegance that they are beautiful in any season.  Here’s looking forward to a bountiful season of blossoms!
