I love to do vignettes of collections in my home and am quite fond of taking photos of collections in friends homes and, of course, Pinterest has become a mood board and one can make files and not have to house stacks of clippings…oh wait I still do that! This will be the first in a series of groupings of interesting items. Thursdays are, after all, looking at unusual homes and gardens.
How perfect is this arrangement….all blending in a grey blue tone and topping a radiator cover, simple but elegant, perfect scale and drawing your attention to the space. Notice the gold switch plate simple touches like that make all the difference in a finished room setting. Antique vessals along with a wonderful beautifully framed Pochoir, a French illustraton. I collect Pochoir illustrations and have many in my home. This piece was a gift from me to the stylist owners of the rest of this collection featured in their Master bedroom. It was a treasure that I purchased several years ago at the always fascinating Randolph Street Market (mark your calendars the next Market is on Saturday and Sunday, October 29 and 30 http://www.randolphstreetmarket.com).
A charming book was published by Thames & Hudson in 2015 on the art of Pochoir, it is a mesmerizing read. (ISBN 978-0-500-23939-1)
I’ll share my Pochoir collection with you as we go through the upcoming weeks.
