"Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it."

—Roald Dahl

. . . and it can be said that autumn comes in shades of burnt orange, of sable, tartan and of gold . . . and so, a little inspiration for these blustery days, and for the leaves strewn on the walkways, for the nights that seem to come all too soon, but have, happily, already been diffused with the romance of firelight . . .

. . . ceilings painted as the sky, gilded archways and yards upon yards of silk drapery, golden chandeliers, and the most exquisite gowns, a whirl of embellishments, beading and lace, an intermingling of tulle and ballerina buns — here, in an enchanting glimpse backstage at dennis basso . . .

{shades of tiffany blue & the fondest farewell to summer}


by roséline


a-golden-light-hed
tiffany8

. . . every year, around this time, wistfully bid summer the fondest of all farewells, for the light has already changed in the early evening — a little more dusky, a little more golden, and mid-september sunsets have a deep coral hue more riotous than the pinks of august; and so, a long good-bye to august sunsets and warm ocean breezes, to afternoons on terraces and days at the beach, to long evening walks and rose bushes along the way, to rustling leaves, and most of all, to bare shoulders and legs and open-toed sandals . . .

. . . a late start today, and no weekend links is a sure sign that things are a little topsy-turvy around here -- and this week may be as sporadic as the last, or even more so -- and today is an electrician and dry cleaners kind of day, packed boxes and new suitcases and only five days left at this place, before a week in the countryside, and then a few more weeks of travel, [more on that later], but for now, a little early autumn inspiration . . .

{take me away № 37 | the extravagantly lovely silks of lyon}

Lyon -- the capital of lights, a fascinating destination of beguiling Renaissance architecture and renowned cuisine, a sea of history and a library of beloved crafts -- tucked in the Rhône-Alpes region of France, the city is situated between two well-known cities, Paris and Marseille. Home to 483,000 residents, also called Lyonnais, Lyon is considered to be one of the largest and most incredible cities in France . . .

Beyond its scale, it is also historically known for its importance in the weaving and production of beautiful, quality silks. Within its array of mansions, museums, shops and trailing cobblestone streets and quaint passageways, visitors will uncover far more than incredible Renaissance buildings and splendor -- one will uncover care, imaginations of visionaries, and the works of hands that have helped shaped history for the city, and truly, for France.

In fact, it is said that many of the passageways that remain in existence today are entirely unique to the city and were originally built for the silk weavers of yesteryear, for the weavers to be able to easily deliver goods between shops.

One can almost picture the bustling that would have taken place behind the scenes -- oh to be able to follow them -- as rich colours and textures would travel along, cascading past windows and doorways, and delivered into the hands of those who would no doubt transport them into the presence of Kings and Queens -- to be adored and adorned amidst great nobility for centuries and centuries . . .

{style inspiration | falling for fall : autumn layers}

white-layers

. . . and in the time of year where mornings are crisp and evenings are a little chilly, dressing for the weather is best in layers, weather in shades of white with knit sweaters and skinny jeans for late summer mornings, or chunky cable knits with city shorts for early autumn nights, and all-out layers of shearling and cashmere for when all the leaves have fallen . . .

. . . how it came to be nearly summer's end will forever remain an eternal mystery, but the light is already changing, and there have been mornings in jeans & belted trenches, instead of the usual bare legs and sheer tops, and soon the leaves will have all fallen, and when that time comes, you will find me wrapped in cashmere and sitting by the fire . . .

{décor inspiration : warm shades of pink for the cooler months}

. . . and despite the drizzly days and overcast skies recently, and the wintry days still to come, soon the wool tartan blankets will be unpacked from their winter hide-aways, but rather than paint the walls deep and sultry shades, am much more drawn to warm and elegant pinks, on ceilings and floors and crown canopies, and especially on velvet settees -- with the only difference being, perhaps, for the winter, may be the addition of a little leopard print . . .
