A Minimalist Yet Pretty Holiday Vibe In a San Francisco Home

I remember my eldest daughter's first Christmas. The day felt extra special and I couldn't wait to share all our family traditions with her, and create new ones too. The memories came flooding back when I read Si's blog French By Design last week. Si has been busy preparing her home for an extra special Christmas: her first born daughter, Inès will shortly return home from college for the first time to spend the holidays with them. Here are some snapshots from her beautiful home where Si plans to enjoy a "slower pace, PJ days, Netflix binging, laughing and holding random cake baking sessions" with her tribe. Sounds perfect to me!

Si's home is lovely at the best of times (see more pics here) - but I really love the additional festive touches, how about you?

Does it make anyone else feel like staining your floors black? I love the contrast with the white walls and how the floor makes everything 'pop' - very tempting indeed!

Take a peek at Si's blog French By Design and her book How The French Live for lots more inspiration!

Do you recall an extra special holiday / Christmas too?

Vi ses imorgen!

  1. Oh I absolutelyI love this home.So inviting and relaxed, a girl after my own heart. I'm going to pop over to her blog.
    Does anyone happen to know where the living room carpet is from? I am coveting that carpet.......Merry Christmas to all.

    1. Hi Bernadette, I love Si's home too! I'm afraid I'm not sure where the carpet is from but you can buy similar boucherouite rugs on Etsy if that helps :) Merry Christmas!

  2. Love the look of the black floors, but I am a blonde so it would just make me have to vacuum more often... And life is too short for that!
    Looks like a beautiful home, I will have a cup of tea and look at her blog now, and dream back to when I lived in San Francisco.
