Back to our regular programming


Every time a chapter of your life, short or long, finished you feel its impacts. That is what makes living so exciting.

As my frequent travel run ended last night, I am getting back to my regular schedule. What this means for you is that:

  • You get more daily posts – more tips, more inspirations
  • I will have time to create instructional videos
  • I can participate more in the blogosphere.

There will be more posts on the amazing things I did or I saw plus my guides on better living in style. Stay tuned; it should be exciting.

Coming soon: an improved Web site

In the upcoming days / weeks, I will deploy:

  • a new signature for At Home with Kim Vallée – the time has come to get a real identity for my brand
  • a revised, more relevant category system
  • new features to get to my content

What type of tree?

I took the pictures last week at Peju, a small Provencal family-run winery in Napa Valley. Since I forgot to ask, does anyone know what type of tree this is?

    I can’t wait to see your new design. I’m been tapping my toe, waiting for my computer guy to switch mine over. So frustrating!

    You’re lucky to have “an uncle in the furniture business” as we say here.

    It is a Saucer Magnolia tree, also known as a “Tulip” tree. They are quite beautiful trees!
