Marie Christophe’s wirework mannequins have always been an inspiration to me, as you can see in my new collection of floral fashion dress forms.  She made these for Musee de la Mode, Paris in 1998  — can it really have been that long ago? 

The peacock strutted for Chanel; the giraffe loped for Issey Miyake; the swan swanned for Jean-Paul Gaultier; the hare hopped for Yohji Yamamoto; the ostrich sashayed for Christian Lacroix; and the rooster crowed only for Comme des Garcon. Magnifique!

Mannequins have become my mantra – this one’s wearing a collar/necklace made of porcelain flowers.
This work by Marie Christophe is Picasso-esque, and it’s one of my all-time favorites.

My Floral Fashions …My creative process starts with flowers.

Serving Up High Fashion Florals
These runway-ready ready sculptures, inspired by all things femme and French.
 For some it takes a lifetime to find their passion, but my love of flowers was always there.  I always looked to nature  and fashion for inspiration!

Love grows best in little houses…

As soon as I saw the half-acre empty lot, where donkeys, alpacas and horses were living, I knew that it would be my lavender field.

 In September 2019, I set about the planting, with the idea to turn the charming A-frame barn in front of it, into my lovely  little flower shed where I dry all my lavender and flowers from my garden.

My flower shed is the heart of the garden, where I dream up all the ways to bring its magic out into the world and share this pleasure with all of you.

My latest projects are adorning antique dress forms with dried flowers.
My shop is filled with bespoke finds from Europe that are just waiting to come into your home.
I travel the globe looking for unique curiosities and unusually beautiful objects, lighting, and textiles from around the world to incorporate into the rooms I style and design for my clients.
My business revolves around providing one-of-a-kind commissions from the artists I represent from Europe showcased in the renovated, light-filled casita on my property.  Items range from  delicate and sparkly sculptural lamps and chandeliers, textiles to wonky dinnerware and serving pieces.

Adam & Viktoria’s luxurious and richly adorned velvet pillows in vibrant jewel tone colorways are always guests at my gatherings.

Invite these gorgeous pillows to your table.

Fall refresh is here!

In the dining room, the sparkling light of Marie Christophe’s wirework and crystal chandeliers make the season magic — and spark the dinner conversation. So very chic! So very French!
