sneak peek: dorothée monestier of my little day

by anne

Dorothée Monestier is co-founder of My Little Day, a charming French online shop devoted to children’s birthdays (seriously adorable, with great styling). Dorothée loves a space with empty walls and smooth shapes and colors that mixes modern with a hint of vintage. In fact, her home in Boulogne-Billancourt, a peaceful yet urban suburb of Paris, provided the perfect backdrop for My Little Day’s latest shoot for their new “super kits,” which proved to be an interesting but worthy challenge that combined her three loves: her kids, home and job. Mille mercis to Melanie Rodriguez for the beautiful photographs, with art direction by Constance Gennari originally for The Socialite Family (don’t miss more inside this fabulous home there)! — Anne
