Chair and Ottoman--Before and After!

BEFORE

AFTER
The fabric and trim selection was made to bring out the blue accents in the room. I added contrasting yellow trim and a very short box pleat skirt to give a little extra detail to the pieces.

Shop Til You Drop: The Paris Flea Markets

Traditional, modern, handcrafted, machine made...you name it and it can be found in Paris at the flea markets! There was so much to see that I forgot to take pictures! I did manage to squeeze a few items into my suitcase to bring home: 2 prints, 2 bedside stools and a set of antique measuring cups!

Graffiti: Paris Style!


This is the alley style entrance to the Marche Vernaison at Les Puces de Paris--the notorious flea markets in Paris! The colorful graffiti turned the harsh security shutter into something more interesting to look at!

My very colorful daughter poses with some black and white graffiti! I love the contrast!
