It’s the first day of Advent, so let’s check out these adorable Advent calendars by Nouveau Designs, one focusing on Brooklyn and the other depicting Amsterdam. The only thing that would make these sweeter would be if they were filled with chocolates!
Here’s a thought — how about merging the above aesthetic and Advent theme with the Anthropologie 2010 calendar? You’d have a village of 24 buildings, and the door to one building would open on each day of Advent. The whole installation could be placed beneath a Christmas tree, with a Lionel train going around it. Who wants to try this?
