I hope everyone has a lovely and safe Thanksgiving. Let's all try to focus on the positive and believe that there are better days ahead.
Do you notice the silverware is placed facing down and the napkin is on the right? Very French - he is based in Paris.

|Matthew Monroe Bees - House Beautiful|
In his Charleston home, this interior designer places his Christmas tree in a blue and white Chinese fish bowl. He says it leaves more room for presents and elevates the tree making it look more grand. OK you smart people, this looks to be a cut tree and tree stands tend to have larger bases with wider legs. I would love to know how he secured the tree.

|From My Collection|
I posted before about how caftans have been a staple of tropical dressing for centuries and in South Florida for decades. Light, breezy, and chic, they work here morning, noon, and night. With the pandemic and staying at home more, they have become my wardrobe. I even sleep in one. I am wearing this one above right now. They are great as nightgowns, beach coverups, loungewear, and going out as well - I just add a pair of statement earrings, a straw bag, Jack Rogers sandals, and I am dressed for anywhere - things don't get too dressy here BTW. Venice and Sarasota are far more casual than Palm Beach.
I especially love the ones by Rujuta Sheth. Made of rayon, they are machine washable and you just hang them to dry. And they wear like iron. They are available on the website, and I have also purchased them from Madewell and Anthropologie - two of my favorite stores.
I bought a couple yesterday on Black Friday sales to add to my collection.
