Fall Nesting With The Memories of Paris










Every September I take a trip to Paris for the experience of Paris in the Fall. I stroll the streets, I eat my favorite Laduree Macarons and I attend Mason & Object Paris. The temperatures are cool and the air is crisp. Over the years, I have down sized my spending. Well okay, when the dollar became weaker then the euro and I returned home to the USA with a Chanel Camel Cashmere Cape, only to find the same one at the Chanel in Chicago. So yes, I have learned to change my French spending spree ways. Now in the new economy, I go to take in the Paris Fall merchandising, the fashion, the people, to eat the food, sit at Bistros, and to travel home with my new found influences of nesting the french way.

I love Mason & Object Paris because it is a 360° vision of furniture, decoration, and every single aspect of the world of interior design. So how do I transform this adventure, this trip to the city of lights, and bring it home to the beach? While antique shopping at the Paris Flea market, I may select one fine French antique treasure that I bring home for a clients or my own beach house decor. Several years ago I selected a French door, which everyday my client opens like a fine gift from Paris. My own french beach house treasure, is a lovely sink with the flowers from Paris. Every evening and every morning, one awakes to the pleasures of water in the french flowered sink. You see I love fall nesting, with the memory and influences of Paris! Yes in Automne I begin to feel a bit Marie-Antoinettish.

Barbara, I found your beautiful blog via Kathe, whose work is featured in your publication. So glad I did, too.

My husband and I spent our tenth anniversary (way back when) in Paris in early November. It was the most beautiful Fall ever. Your images have taken me for a wonderful trek up Memory Lane. (LOVE the sink!) Thank you.
