Maison Auclair Smalls

I simply couldn't resist showing you some of the smaller items at my (once) secret source, Maison Auclair, in Naples. Judith Auclair is a genius at creating things for the home, which are at once chic, unusual, fantasy, and practical all at the same time ! I especially like these very Duquette inspired candlesticks, and the marvelous exuberant photograph frame. Considering her quality, the prices are quite reasonable, and each piece is one of a kind. Some are even signed by the artist. These lovely creations can also be found at the shop/studio of Laura Parsons, one of the top designers in Naples, and also a good friend of mine. Her design firm is called PureDesign of Naples, and is located in the elegant new Naples Bay Resort - located on the eastern end of Fifth Avenue South. Her windows face south into Naples Bay and Port Royal. Also, don't miss todays post from my friend James Andrew, about the house of Scalamandre', you are in for a fabulous treat ! These shell creations would be splendid in the room he designed. Have a great weekend, and enjoy the October weather ! DF
