Maison and Objet Paris

Maison and Objet is the first interior trade show for 2010 and is often the first glimpse of trends. Here are some images and thoughts about what was on show.

Many of the fabric houses show their latest collections of fabrics and wallpapers, as shown above.

"Ethnic Chic" - Dreams of far-off places, a melting pot of world cultures, contemporary exoticism for a home that exudes the sensual charm of vibrant ethnic influences.
Charme” country home, family home …

Family home, holiday home etc. from the beaches of Normandy to the hills of Provence, snapshots of life with the soft perfume of nostalgia.

“inspiration jardin” continues to spread its influence in the home.
The home is cultivating its nature... A breath of fresh air and greenery for a return to a bucolic decorative spirit

Vintage Vogue Covers

I was looking for a present for my sister in law and thought some vintage posters may be an option. I came across these Vogue covers from 1910 - 1920. I love these images, they are graphic, colourful and very of the period, showing exotic clothes and places.
