{live here, eat that} old school

L: Brussels apartment of design Justine Glanfield, via Milk.|R: Apple cardamon cakes by Tartelette.

Today I am showing you a little combination that totally fits my mood of the moment – nostalgia for my childhood Septembers. Going back to school with my sharpened pencils, the old wooden desks in the classroom…and the smell of my mom’s apple cakes baking in the oven while I was doing my homework. This lovely house is the Brussels home of Justine Glanfield, designer of a children clothing line called Cotton & Milk. I am loving the old-school, vintage feel around the house – the furniture and textiles that Justine picked are simply perfect for this old house that they renovated.

And nothing like an good old apple cake, right? Like this apple cardamom mini cake by Helene at Tartelette.

I grew up in a region of France where apples are king, and some days all of our meals would include apples in one form or another, and I can’t wait to try her version of the old-school apple cake.
