My Maison, Mia Casa..

On this special day when our friends across the pond are celebrating Thanksgiving, others are celebrating Hanukkah (and some are even celebrating the unique Thanukkah (not to be seen again for another 79,000 years)) I thought I’d welcome you all into my house for a few festive nibbles and a couple of glass of something cold and classy to raise a toast to everlasting joy, happiness and all that’s good with the world!

    Every picture screams “exquisite taste”, “warmth”, “lovely family” … And your bathroom is my idea of the dream bathroom ! I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving either, but I’m soooo grateful that you’ve opened the doors to your lovely and creative world to me, a few months ago ! xxxxx

    Thank you for sharing! You have a lovely home. I found a French Pinot Noir (Tortoise Creek) that actually pairs well with seafood — I left it in the foyer for you. It is a gift for the hostess gift.

    Happy Thanksgiving! I’m finding this to be the first holiday I’m struggling with abroad, but it’s so heartwarming to see my friends sending well wishes! You have such a lovely home and I’m thankful you shared it with me today! XOXO – K

      I wrote a post a while ago on where the tiles come’s an amazing site with hundreds of options including designing your own..the post was called ‘Thing of Beauty 3’ or see if this link works..if all that fails, the website is called ‘Villa Lagoon Tiles’ and is visual/design heaven x

    Ahhhh, just home from hours of eating and drinking and playing. Lovely to see your beautiful home again-and SO nice to come home to my place so clean and quiet. This day I am thankful for my family and friends and my health (what there is left of it) Now, back to writing. Almost there…

        Clean, white, and clinical? Haha I think you might be talking about minimalists! I am quite a minimalist at heart but then most of the time, I want to be eclectic and fully surrounded by colors of all sorts.

    Wow, you’re bathroom IS classy. I’d feel like I’d have to be so careful to not make any splashes on the sink counter or mirror, though. Pretty and fancy shoes too!

    I so love all the images in your blogs. make me want to you know, decorate, get rid of the clutter (his) and replace it with tasteful object d’art πŸ˜‰

    • Maison Bentley Style

      I’ll replay that phrase back in my head..’tasteful object d’art’ not wasteful tat as my husband would say! (Not that he has any choice what so ever..and in fact he bought me the love heart!) x
