23 Jan Sunday Style in Seven – Alcira of The Nero Chronicles
I’m thrilled beyond words to have Alcira of The Nero Chronicles here today, sharing her
Style in Seven.
You can most certainly count me as one of this ladies most devoted fans.
Her blog is filled with eloquent reviews of all that’s stylish and her gift of the tongue never fails to impress.
If you’re not already a follower of Alcira’s, than I’m afraid you’re quite simply missing out on a little piece of blog heaven and I hope this piece gives you a small glimpse into the fabulous world of Nero.
And if you are already a huge fan as I am, than sit back and enjoy finding out a little more about this girl you already surely love.
Dearest Christine, I’m tickled pink to have been asked to contribute to your Sunday Style in Seven series. Seven is, after all, such a lovely number. And now without further ado, here are a few of the tidbits that express my style and make me tick.
I believe strongly in the power of natural curiosities and books to breathe life — still or otherwise — and layered charm into a space. When it comes to design, I always recommend choosing objects with the help of that dynamic duo, the heart and the gut.
Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer is a particular style icon of mine. Apart from being a stunning beauty, she oozes grace, poise and natural charm from every impeccable pore, and has apparently mastered the subtle art of going easy on the accessories.
Just look at her — she’s luminous yet understated, timeless and spunky. I also have the utmost respect for a cosmetics maven who doesn’t over-groom her eyebrows or go to town on her hair.
All Napoleonic complexes notwithstanding, I would like — just once — to conquer the world in this coat.
Nero likes her some design — a great deal of it, in fact. So trying to narrow down my signature decor style isn’t a truly viable option. I go in phases, lunar mostly.
These days I’m leaning towards the urban grace of Paris.
With a touch of edgy London cheek thrown in.
Foreign films are my guilty pleasure. They are the one elixir that allows me to travel and indulge in alternate experiences without leaving the creature comforts of home behind. I live for the next Netflixcapade.
Ambient scent is an essential part of my daily routine, much like an accompanying soundtrack to my space. As such, I believe fine candles are a welcome addition to a life well-lived. And luckily, like most things of quality, one is all you need.
This brilliant life is a fleeting and many-splendored thing, so go ahead, take the time to slow down for tea and dessert.
Merci Beaucoup Bijou for inviting me to luxuriate in your vie Boheme!
Thank you so much Alcira…you are style is inspiring.
