Maison et Objet 2013

Vendredi 18 Janvier 2013 Maison et Objet
My first visit to Maison et Objet and I was thrilled to bits. Just don't take the RER B and get off at Villepinte instead of the next stop Villepinte Exposition Parc especially when it's freezing cold ahem
I'll focus just on the stripes for this post of which there were MANY. These are from Toiles du Soleil in the Pyrenees.
Navy stripped bedding for a mini marinere.
And Versace striped table settings if you lean more towards Italia...
More from Les Toiles du Soleil
I admired/coveted this woman's stripey cabas and she admired my little Sonia stripey bag...
Quilted stripes plus roses from Harmony in Provence - loverly.
A stripey wall of baguettes = edible!
Vertical stripes also edible if you have a very long forchette
Stripes of champagne glasses at the elegant Fauchon concession at Maison et Objet.
Coming home after M et O, diagonal stripes of snow flakes falling and melting on contact. Not so today though...
Bonne Journee!


  1. C'est joli voir Paris sous la neige:-)
    I have more than my share here and now it's bitter cold getting more bitter as the week goes on..-3 F right now.
    Leg warmers and duvet stripes with all these layers:-)

      Really appreciate that brand, but my favorite stand in MO13 was the Brabbu sweet home appeal stand. Felt at home!

  10. Beautiful post! And you got snow, too. ;-)

    Love your water color stripes, and the photo of it all. The baguette wall looks rather fearsome. Makes me think of the good olde times, when ladies were expected to come in grande robe to dinner, and gentlemen to leave their swords at home.

  11. Oh I want that stripe and floral quilt.. its just my colors too!! :) What fun touring all these new places. Are you all snowed in now?

    1. We're slushed in here. But not because of the salt...
      Here salt goes on food not streets ahem

  12. Nice stripes--looks verrrrrrry cold!

  13. The photos are great - you are really cranking out beautiful shots lately!
    I love the last shot of Paris in the snow.

  14. Carol, you've chosen wonderful stripes, and I do admire those you've painted.

    Somehow, those baguette stripes have reminded me how long it's been since I tasted a baguette. NYC's versions are like those of Paris, but I bet I buy a baguette tomorrow.

    Thank you for the inspiration. No snow here yet. Forecast for a bit of snow tonight seems to have missed the boat. It's terribly cold though.


  15. oops, I meant to type that our local baguettes are not like those of Paris, no way. I did mean to type that I will most likely buy one tomorrow.



Love hearing from you
