I just [...]

The ottoman coffee table

by Elsa Termenon on September 4, 2011

When we moved in to our house and started decorating we told ourselves we didn’t want a coffee table. We just wanted the space to be open to be able to lounge directly on the rug before the fire place. But as the months past we realized that we needed something. So we have been [...]

Due to the hurricane Irene hitting the East Coast this weekend we had not much choice but to have a weekend indoors. We stocked up on all the essentials on Friday, made sure the flashlights had batteries and then decided to take the opportunity to do some cooking and just relax in front of a [...]

I can not imagine a better way of ending my week than to spend the day at a flea market and to browse a few antique shops in the countryside. That’s exactly what we did today. We left Philadelphia this morning and headed for our favorite antique market in New Jersey – Golden Nugget Antique [...]

Dressing Room Make Over

by Elsa Termenon on June 8, 2011

Yesterday’s post about excessive shopping and our patterns of consumption made me continue to think about the subject. I though about how I could keep my habits under control and not feel like I want to run out and get things new new new, all the time. I easily get bored with what I’m wearing [...]

Decorate with Color

These days we’re doing a lot of furniture hunting and decorating at home, we’re still in the process of making our house a home.

The Souvenirs

by Elsa Termenon on May 19, 2011

I’m not much of a shopper when I’m traveling. I much more prefer to relax with a cup of coffee on a terrace watching people and soaking up the new atmosphere wherever I go. (India is an exception though… there I go bananas!). Anyway, I took two souvenirs back with me home from this trip [...]
