Jean Godard House Tour

My mother lives in the wooded suburb of Michigan where we grew up. The last few years have been tough. Her house caught fire and needed major repairs.then her beloved husband Harvey Died in December. (We miss him so much.) As a small way to support her, we refreshed her home a bit, giving her family photos and a velvety bed to help her grow. It made me feel bright and soft for the next chapter. Look around…

Lag: block shop. pot: Le Creuset. Oven mittens: food 52. Vases and flowers: urban stems.

Favorite food: My husband and I used to cook, but now it’s just me, so I prefer oatmeal or avocado toast in the morning. Sometimes I cook my own dinner, usually just bread and cheese. I also make toast with bursin and sautéed mushrooms and it’s very tasty.

About Reliable Kitchen Appliances: In 1980 we were living in France with twin babies. Le Creuset dutch oven for $25. At the time, $25 was expensive. I make a lot of dishes with it: chicken cacciatore, onion soup, bouillabaisse, sausage ragu pasta… but after 30 years of constant use, the enamel started to peel off. So I called the company and they sent me a new one.

About photos of children and grandchildren: gallery wall Seeing my children lifts my spirits every day. Grandchildren are just adorable. I love the snapshots we took in Manzanita, Anton eating creme brulee, and Toby and me in Maine. Everyone looks so smiling. A friend came to visit me the other day and said, “You look like you’re really having fun with your grandchildren!”

At a friendly table: I often bring my laptop here so I can work while enjoying the view of the forest.good point round table That said, people can really squeeze in when they visit. I like the light silhouette even though it has a firm texture. I also like the beautiful color of the wood.and Chair’ The pop of color feels like a running theme throughout the home, making it cheerful yet elegant.

For pendant lamps: I love pendant lamp. It’s a small work of art. It’s very bright and the light is soft even when all lights are on. I had a hard time choosing the right color, but in the end, the white color was perfect.

About the night ritual: now i’m watching someone somewhere. The setting feels more rural than Michigan, where I live, but I appreciate that it’s set in the Midwest. The characters are always laughing, but they’re still dealing with real-life issues. Her daughter Lucy has this sofa and recommended it to me. Brown color gives a feeling of warmth and richness. The backrest cushions are comfortable, and the bench seat makes watching TV comfortable.

Favorite movie: My top 3 movies are new Irish movies quiet girl (I loved Bookthat too); father; and When Harry met Sallyof course!

In soft space: this rug That’s excellent. It has a raised circular pattern which is beautiful but very soft on the feet. And I love having flowers in my house. I always said that if I were a millionaire, there would be flowers in every room and new sheets every day.

About Harvey’s photo: there is a photo of my late husband Everywhere in the house, including the one on the mantel where I kiss him. The other is from our wedding day and has a picture of us smiling in our old kitchen. But pictures don’t make me sad. i like to see him He laments how good he could have been, but when he sees the picture he remembers it. There’s a saying that love and grief are twins, and it’s true. How lucky was I to have such a relationship?

About night owl tendencies: I often stay up late reading or watching TV shows in bed. When it’s finally midnight, Wardle is out, so I’m going to sleep starting at 12:01!

About life in Michigan: I enjoy having four seasons, but winter is a little too long. But we have beautiful autumn and beautiful spring. And there are many lakes. I drive by the lake every day. I loved raising my kids here. It felt like a small town here and the kids could go to the swimming club or ride their bikes to the library.
