Just a quick few pics since some of the furniture and the curtains have arrived! LL wants the sofa recovered in a brown velvet with nailheads all around. I’ll miss the pink but it’s ripped and really does need a lift. I want a valance over the window, maybe I can convince her. As for the curtains, they are sheers with velvet applique and the anchors are 3 silk panels in one. Still need tons of stuff. Seems it’s always the same whether it’s a mansion or a tiny apartment!
You don’t ALWAYS have to go to Paris…there are TONS of fantastic things everywhere in the US too. Today I took clients shopping and found enough to furnish a Chateau! Here are some of the beauties I saw and some I may go back for. If you like any let me know and I’ll nab it for you, for God sake! I can’t take them all!
All the booty from Paris is en route. Most of it is for one of the apartments i’m working on that i showed you below. Here are some of the things at the port awaiting entree~it’s painted and ready to be dressed!
Of course, I’m not saying that New York’s fleamarkets don’t have a certain charm if you look close….there are plenty of treasures
Well, my hopes for blogging were dashed as I didn’t have a spare moment to myself and when I did, it was to crash face down and dream of the incomprehensible beauty I’d seen that day. It’s weird how Paris never dissapoints….everywhere you go there’s some surprise around the corner. I must have taken over 1000 pictures! I’ve only been back for a couple of days and my plate is overflowing so I am off to bed, but just HAD to blog if only for a mili sec! bonne nuit!
