Dessin Fournir ShowroomI made a trip to one of my favorite shops yesterday, the Dessin Fournir shop in the Arts Building. Their beautiful furniture line is inspired by classical European design but interpreted with sleek, transitional forms. Everything is bench made and artisan crafted; everything is simply gorgeous. I usually can't take my eyes off their stunning, almost sculptural dining room tables but their new spring installation had all my attention. Soft white and cream upholstered pieces juxtaposed a bold, Matisse inspired wall of blue and white. The effect was dazzling. As much as I loved the vignette, I knew that if I tried to replicate the wall at home it would look like a bad school project. Too bad--"I'm ready for a dose of bold", I mused. Two stops later Clarence House came to my rescue when I spied a David Hicks pattern called The Vase. Of course, I was drawn to the larger than life navy and white pattern- it's a bold and chic choice, that felt just right to me.
Are you feeling bold in any of your rooms?
