DECEMBER | Get in the MOOD

December is the month of lights (lighting candles to celebrate Santa Lucia) and Christmas, my fave day.
We don't need anything to be well but the ones we love (ourselves to begin!).
Getting old, I become more intimist and these are four simple things that I'm doing right now and get me in the mood of december:

- an hot spiced cup like this Spiced Chamomile Ginger Hot Toddy from Life and Style (detailed recipe and tips here) + many other seasonal inspiring recipes every week.

- my fave 2018 calendar (free! inscribe yourself to the newsletter, download it here and print it) thanks to the talented Vera of Paulsvera

- reading (again) The Fairy tales and Stories of H.C.Andersen - the real ones! sometimes cruel but mindful.

- peeking through the Instagram accounts of institutional places all over the world to look at Christmas adobes and events - like famous department stores (here Les Galeries Lafayette and Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche in Paris)

A sparkling hug! L.

Merano Chair | by Alex Gufler for TON




The Merano Chair combines the bottom design made of solid wood with harmonic shapes of bent plywood in the seat and backrest. Thanks to the production technology used, it is remarkably light and does not contain any screws or metal pieces. Available with a upholstered seat, it creates a set together with the bar stool and the Merano armchair.
