The Edit: Our Paris Editor’s Holiday Wishlist 2018

While we’re getting ready for a festive month, in some cities the first snowfall has already been celebrated, and morning coffee is being taken more and more often under the covers, even though I just discovered a pretty café in my neighbourhood.

Here in Paris the days are fading rapidly, but we are enjoying some pretty romantic sunsets while walking longing La Seine.

Avenue Montaigne already sparkles in gold, while the Champs Elysées is in red. Shop Windows are filled with fairy lights and garlands.

Christmas preparations will soon be quite intensive, and while you can find thousands of gifts ideas for your dear ones, here is a wishlist of beautiful things for your own self-care.

STRANGE to be writing this message on the very last day of the year, as when many of these photos were taken, the month of December stretched out like a long and languid dream.

The Last Magical Holiday Inspiration for December 2018

IN THESE LAST DAYS before Christmas, the city sidewalks are filled with last-minute shoppers, merry with the flush of cava and happy to be jostled about by the elbows and shopping bags of grandmothers with arms filled with gifts, and couples hoping to surprise one another with their thoughtfulness. Everywhere, there seems to be a feeling of good cheer.

Ven House, an Eighteenth-Century Country House in Somerset

FEW THINGS can conjure up the holiday spirit more than a perfectly decorated home and Ven House, the early-Georgian mansion built for a wealthy lawyer (who went bankrupt in the process) in the countryside near the Somerset village of Milborne Port, is exactly that.

Holiday Tabletop Inspiration

We live in a world so addicted to speed and noise, I realize every day that everything we do is in such a hurry. At work I observe clients always in a hurry. On the streets (with the exception of the Rive Gauche side of Paris where time seems to stand still) there is a rythme frenetique, as the locals say.

Christmastime in London

When we first moved to Spain three years ago, one of the only things that we lamented was that around the holiday season, the city just didn’t seem very festive. There was the usual carousel and a few smaller decorated trees here and there, but over all, the shops and streets never really got into the holiday spirit like they do in the UK.

Dana is a fragile dreamer, they say, arriving in Paris four years ago, for love, and the city has been constantly changing her life since then. Hers is a world of books, (Marguerite Duras, Simone de Beauvoir, Anne Berest), expos, long walks sur les quais de Seine, pink skies, fine wine and peonies.
