As you may recall, in Simone LeBlancâ€™s Kitchen Lookbook we hinted at her exclusive new collection of gift-toppers for Terrain (one of our favorite online shops for home and gardening goods) called Forest Floor. Well, weâ€™re finally spilling the beans and showing you the entire, amazing line. Itâ€™s perfect for the holidays no matter what you celebrateâ€”wintery, whimsical and totally wonderful. We asked the creator to tell us a little bit about what inspired her to create these lovely gift add-ons and hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
The Chalkboard: What inspired Forest Floor?
Simone LeBlanc: “My debut collection of holiday gift toppers is inspired by foraging and gathering from the forest floor.Â Woodsy and wintery, each topper is hand – crafted using preserved foliage, Belgian and French linen ribbon and natural jute. They are designed to be placed atop a hand wrapped package or simply, given as gifts themselves. The line debuted at TerrainÂ as part of the Simone LeBlanc Gifts & Goods Collection of handmade objects and accessories.”
TC: What are your favorite pieces in the collection?
SL: “The Frosted Wreath topper is one of my favorites because it’s a fairy tale take on the traditional Holiday wreath. It is inspired by the twinkling, starry night sky seen through the trees of a dense, woodsy forest. I also love the Winter Sunburst topper because it is so completely unique and handcrafted from distinct elements to create something I love. This piece is imbued with the feeling of a bright sunbeam filtering through the dark forest of trees on a chilly winterâ€™s dayâ€ť
