The home of..... Moon Juice's Amanda Chantal bacon

The home of Moon juice founder Amanda Chantal Bacon

What I love about Amanda Chantal Bacons L.A house is well....  pretty much everything. Its warm and relaxed, with mostly relaxing neutral tones but just enough colour to keep it interesting.

I am always excited to see pictures of the homes of what I would call 'successful hippies'. I guess this pride stems from watching films as a teenager where the 'alternative' character ends up conforming, becoming popular and bagging the bland jock character.  Yawn!

If you aren't aware of Amanda and her wonderful brand Moon Juice then you can check out her site here and her previous home featured on Moon to Moon here.

I love these lamps. My father always said they were 'student' lampshades but I love the big moon shapes glowing with a warm low watt bulb inside.

Camellas-Lloret: French Elegance



"We feel like where you live is where you should get your things—they should be authentic," Moore says of how they thrifted accents for the home from the area.




The above pictures are all from a May feature in Architectural digest and I don't know about you but after seeng these stunning Images of the stunning French house, was left wanting to learn a little more abut this calm, rustic home. A little google search quickly satisfied my thirst for more.

The beautiful home 18th Century home is situated in the centre of MontrĂ©al, a picturesque village in the Languedoc region of France and has been lovingly restored by its current owners Annie and Colin Moore

"tucked away on a medieval hilltop village in the languedoc, camellas-lloret Is a love project by annie and colin moore, who met on a train leaving paris in 1982.  together they dreamed of creating a place to celebrate and share the pleasures of french life with friends and travellers.  thirty years, three kids, and many adventures later they fell for this classic 18th-century house in an unspoiled corner of the south of france and camellas-lloret was born."


So the good news about this stunning home is that it also serves as a Bed and Breakfast. Below are some more photos from Camellas-Lloret's webpage

Sourcing : Semikah Rugs


it was little surprise to me when I read Semikah's 'about' page to find out that photographer Carly Page was one of the ladies behind Semikah. The photography was actually the first thing that drew my attention to Semikah Textiles. Although there are loads of beautiful images on their webpage of the stunning rugs I really loved the vibe of the pictures of them sourcing the rugs and meeting the makers, maybe because like many others, I would consider this to be my absolute dream job!!

The Nooks....







I have just found this beautiful calm home via the website Nooks. All the homes on the site might be for sale - for the right price ...


I love the mixture of contemporary and traditional in this home, and although it is very tidy, little areas such as the skirting board in the hall could do with a scrub..... which makes me feel better about my own.
