Le Dans La Blog

July 18, 2011

Oh la lovely! It’s time to share the decor8 blog of the week once again, a tradition that I’ve held since 2006 as a way to share with my dear friends and readers all of the blogs that catch my eye that I think could be a great source of inspiration for each one of you as they are to me.

Le Dans La Blog

Today the tradition continues over five years later as I diligently update my blog of the week with the same passion and intention as before – to spread the love and play it forward because bloggers supporting bloggers, at least blogs we connect with and believe in, is important. This week, Le Dans La, is the featured blog and my my my I just love it. If you cannot read French, open the blog in Google Chrome and click “Translate” in the toolbar and you will have a better understanding of what Le Dans La is all about.

Le Dans La Blog

Le Dans La is written by Zooey, a French stylist and I just love her casual, fresh aesthetic, her home shots, outdoor photos and her darling child with the golden ringlets in her hair… And of course, how can one not love the gorgeous shoes that she co-designs and has made by hand in Mexico for women and children that she sells in her shop called Albert et Henriette, named after her grandparents who were linen merchants and in the millinery business. Her life in France reads as both idyllic and intriguing and combined with her gorgeous photography, well, I have to say Le Dans La is quite a fantastic little gem.

    I think I need to go download google chrome so I can translate this blog. I’ve been working on an outdated browser too long.
    Thank you for sharing such a pretty site!

    Thanks for sharing – Zooey’s blog is filled with such gorgeous images and colours! Beautiful. And I can even practise my supposed degree-level French, which is shamefully slipping away!

    Thanks for the tip! Yes, featuring a blog is a great way to share new ideas and “meet” new people. So is linking. I enjoy visiting my bloggerfriend’s favorites as much as I enjoy returning to my own “old” bloggerfriends. NOT linking is also a great way to exclude someone from a gang (usually friends who has met in real life). Their loss, isn’t it? Love the borderless internet. Thanks for sharing so generously.

    This is one of the first blogs I started following and I am hooked ever since. I love how she is able to show new interesting pictures of her home and kids in the same lovely color palette time and again. And by the way, I believe that is her son (not daughter)… ;)

    And I do agree with spreading the word if you find a nice blog… I always try to introduce a new blog or call it my favorite post of the week ;) And I am very happy you introduced me through the beautiful post of my home to your readers ;)

    Networking is the new black I tell you … ;)
