French Tinsel...

Silvery whites and soft blues dominate these rooms.  The Christmas decor that people from other countries display always leave me in awe.  It's the different perspective that fascinates me.  These photos are from a French Magazine, and what can I say...I'm hooked.
Knick nacks and furniture are strategically placed making the most welcoming environment.
It's like being in a museum and being captivated by the most beautiful painting.
You just can't help being in a trance-like state...
taking in every little detail.
To see how others will be dining on Christmas morning a world away.
To see how one designs a table with such elegant taste and intricate detail.
An anything but simple tree.  Stunning to say the least.
Pieces of bark cut into Christmas tree shapes and mercury glass to reflect the romantic glow of candles are touches of perfection.
Even the ornaments are extraordinary.  
 Down to every last detail this home is like a Christmas dream that any family would be happy to wake up to.
Pure Romance.
