Blue is for Biennale

Louis XV commode from the Biennale des Antiquaires, PARIS
I fell in love with the blue decoration on this piece~ which was shown in the recent biennale in Paris.  The combination of the rich blue lacquer with the gilded chinoiserie and the ormulu mounts is sensational!

Dean Farris Interior Design, Naples
While there is no blue shown in this previous apartment of mine, this image for me evokes a mood of living in Paris, or near Paris~
with the pair topiary trees, the tufted settee a la Madeline Castaing, and the unusual baroque style wine table under the crystal chandelier.  Notice my curtains are tied back here.  One can see the spirit of Autumn here~ and tomorrow is October first!  Enjoy!  DF *****
