……………Thank You Nikole……………

I The first time I saw the amazing work by Nikole Herriott was on her blog and I came across this fantastic cookie tutorial. Nikole works together with her father who lives 4600 km apart and they send each other packages…would you like to read more about this special relation, click here



Of course I had to invite Nikole for a Let's Get Personal tour, but I invited her at the same time as Grace from D*S and luckily for me Nikole had enough images to share some special corners of her home with us. I just love her home and believe her decorating and style are from a different world, truly trendsetting and new! {Images by Celine Kim and Nikole Herriott}
