Oui, Paris!...and Italy...and Greece

So I have never heard of Italian designer Paola Navone until I read about her from the blog from one of my favorite stores, South of Market

I saw this image (orignally from Cote Maison), and I was sold.

Now I want to paint my Lyle chairs green!  (Green has always been my favorite color)  This Parisian apartment is perfection to me!  And, since I can do no short posts, here is the rest of her home here....as well as her home in Greece.

And that blue!  My second favorite color.

I am not a big fan of red...but she does it so well.

To die for!  The wall of blue vases, the red flowers, huge red chandelier and green chairs peeking around the corner...

Love the painted walls.

I don't recall ever seeing a sink like this.

Okay...ready for Greece?  (via Marie Claire Maison 

needs no words.

renewing our vows here, perhaps?  Can you imagine?

how inventive is that seating??
