Tis the season of...

Chers Amis de L’Ecole du Bon Gout, Bonjour !

Like it or not the summer is history and “Old Man Winter” is knocking at the door! So with the earlier nightfall and naturally less time spent outdoors, we have more indoor activities and seasonal winter treats. 

One of my favorite winter treats is the increased use of candle light, in chandeliers, wall sconces as well as in candlesticks. Sometimes when I am up before dawn, I light even just one candle in my bedroom while I drink my chocolate chaud . This sets a new comfy mood and tone to welcome the new day. 

With all the holiday celebrations of winter time of course comes the use of lots of candle light adding its magic glow to dinners both large and small. And don’t forget to light up all the candles you can on the night of the Winter Solstice, December the 21st, to make sure that the Sun gets the message to start giving us longer days and shorter nights!!

See following some photos illustrating candle magic to inspire you as well as a sampling of the extensive stock of antique lighting fixtures now in stock at Au Vieux Paris Antiques. If you can not come see in person, visit the web site at
