I can’t help it. Every time I think of Paris, I think of Marie Antoinette and the Revolution. In other words, I think of Paris as antique. The city itself has preserved it’s antiquities so well, that it is part of its character. Close your eyes and think of French interior design. What comes to mind? Baroque? Shabby Chic? Toile? Brocade? Le Tour Eiffel? It’s all vintage, if not antique, right? For me, it is about the art. Not the more modern art, but the classics – like Mona Lisa. And old maps and etchings. And black & white photos. I’m thinking about Paris alot lately. I can’t wait to go back to visit the Marché aux puce (flea markets) and Marché aux vieux papier (old paper market)!
