The Socialite Family

consider The Socialite Family a French version of FvF – except focusing on families, of course. founder Constance Gennari started the website to share her true passion: “observing interior design through the eyes of a family, whether in Paris, New York or anywhere else in the world.”

Traditional values, more particularly, family values are becoming increasingly prevalent in today’s world. As young parents, we not only have a responsibility to provide a just and honest education to our children, but also to teach them to appreciate the better things in life, as any true epicurean would. Through the lenses of various photographers that irresistibly draw us into the world of these modern families, The Socialite Family mission us to imagine and inspire.

i like the latest feature of stylist Aurélie Lecuyer and her husband Jean-Christophe who lives in Nantes with their two little boys. the beautiful photographs are by Melanie Rodriguez.

Mamma’s Day

it’s mother’s day here on sunday. my mom is on a photography trip on the other side of the world where she will be gallivanting through the english countryside, so there will be no chance for me to lavish her with flowers and cups of tea. my mom doesn’t like eating sweet things – so no cake for mother’s day (i did not inherit that trait unfortunately.) we’ve recently had to overcome some difficulties as a family so mother’s day feels very significant to me this year. i feel that way more and more each day with my family.

so if there’s any chance she checks my blog while she’s away – love you mamma, dearest.

how fucking cool is my mom.
