Textile Treasures at ‘Paris Deco Off’

What better way to add color and style to a rainy, cold and grey day in Paris…by visiting Deco Off, an international textile event that takes place once a year in the interior design district on the left bank of Paris.

Global, Graphic and Tropical inspired patterns were among the most popular in many of the textile showrooms. Most featured embroidered accents, appliquรฉs and textured printing techniques.

Tile: Just love this multi-color herringbone tile floor from The Bon Marche in Paris. Nice alternative to just a black and white floor!

Texture: Perfect update to tones of neutrals when it comes to different wood and wood textures…dyed wood accent colors like this turquoise, indigo and marsala.

Turquoise: With the return of the blues (did they ever leave) Turquoise seems to be the universal tone of the season mixing well with Indigo on the cool side and its compliment Orange on the warm side.

Bold Colors are Back!

Bold…Blocking…and Beautiful!

Saturated color for the home is an upbeat option for those who are willing to give it a try!

Years ago bold color was considered “Chaotic” in the home because it was considered “Avonguard” and “Artsy”…but by today’s standards many of us love self expression and are drawn to what is different, especially because color is so personal and can define your style!!

A great way to introduce color into the home is by a few defining accent pieces that will give any space a bit of color personality!

Check out my current “color finds” from Maison & Objet in Paris and enjoy adding some color into your life!
