A luxurious sweep of lavender flanks this very French hillside garden designed by Shellene Mueller. Stone boulders echo the rose- and vine-draped pillars above. French gardens "celebrate the senses," Shellene says. "You're visually stimulated, you're smelling lavender and thyme, there's interesting texture — all the senses are stimulated."
When Tara first started sourcing changing tables, she found herself less drawn to those with overly youth-specific styles, instead leaning towards classic pieces with adult appeal. She opted for an ultra-white changing table/dresser as well as a graphic, round geometric mirror. Once Lily gets older, the pair of pieces can be used for many different purposes in different areas of the home.

Lavender and grey are both easily influenced by other colors. When colored lights are used on a Christmas tree, it’s likely any ornaments, garland and surrounding elements will likely take on the coloring of the lightbulbs. To ensure the colors read more truly and more elegantly, it’s best to dress the tree with white lights.
