New York Fairy Tale

My favorite line from Peter Pan...I believe..I believe..I love fairy tales, in my waking hours, I replay images of times gone by when my sons would sneak by the fireplace in hope to get a glimpse of Santa. At this hour, my house is filled with youth, my sons, their college friends, my french cousin and her girlfriend, every room slept in, every sofa slept in...all these years gone in a flash, wonderful years. I have an incredibly busy week ahead with job site visits, meetings and design presentation for a 7000 sq/ft loft on Christmas Eve!

I am stopping the clock just for a moment to live for a few minutes in a fairy tale world offered to us by Tiffany's. I live in a world of books, books the library, my bedroom, dining room, kitchen, living room, halls, family room. I treasure every book, every written page...thank you Tiffany for creating the most wonderful world of fairy tales in the land of the written page.

Enjoy the Season, Francine


  1. Thank you for sharing this Francine! Absolutely stunning and fairy tale like.
    I hope that you are having a wonderful and festive holiday season.

  2. I love these images and your thoughts! Mine have just come home from school as well with full bags of laundry, raiding the fridge at midnight and last night reminiscing how I evidently never had good hiding spots for the presents. My youngest is just 11 and doesn't want to admit she no longer believes - so sweet! Off to Santa's workshop where I have days of work ahead of me!

  3. Vraiment sublime. Super post! Tres Joyeuses Fetes pleines d'enfants et d'amis. Yes time flies. Sigh...

  10. Dear Francine, what a warm and charming picture you paint of your home this holiday week... I can just feel the excitement and energy having all your kids home creates... and a presentation on Christmas Eve?? you are indeed superdesigner!

    Thanks for the peek in the gorgeous Tiffany's window, always creative and stunning!

  11. Merry, merry Christmas and, of course, a Joyeux Noël. You truly one of my all time favorites, which of course I have proclaimed publicly chez moi. It has been such a pleasure getting to know you.

    Thank you again for your visits and most of all for your superb post.

    This post is charming. Yes, let's believe. . .

  12. Francine sending all my best wishes for a successful presentation tomorrow. Your house sounds wonderfully busy and even more great memories are in the process of being created. Nothing compares to those memories however of when our children were small, especially at Christmas. Very fun to see what Tiffany's created so magically out of pages of books. Definitely a fairy tale in the making.

    Joyeux Noel to you and your entire family.
