It seems like perhaps this has turned into a biyearly blog. Here are my excuses: projects are busy, we moved, I spend too much time with my dog. There are still some things I’d like to share with you though.
For example, I would love to show you our new apartment, but there is the whole matter of the cobblers children never having any shoes. Our living room is currently missing (in no particular order) lamps, art, pillows and the final decisions on multiple chairs. I obviously enjoy the process so I’m in no real rush to make decisions, but eventually I will have photos for you.
We are however (in an effort to please Mike) attempting to decide on a piece of art for above our sofa. I proposed some lovely paintings. Those were countered with some vague suggestion of “golf art” and that was shot down. I know you don’t need an answer for why, but I would like to point out that I am an extremely nice wife who already has as more golf art than your average clubhouse. So here we sit. If I had my way I would happily throw up a Paule Marrot for the time being and call it a day, but even these have been rebuffed.
If you’re even remotely interested in design (which I hope you are otherwise you’re probably awfully bored here) you’ve certainly seen your fair share of Marrot designs over the years. They are sort of a Where’s Waldo of shelter magazines, always popping up from magazine pages or Instagram feeds, and while I don’t always subscribe to overly popular art for the fear that it can quickly turn into over-done art, I still love a good Marrot print.
So, while I will not be hanging one over my sofa anytime soon, I was delighted to see that Anthropologie is currently selling a collection of Paule Marrot pieces. I am particularly smitten with this water carafe and these glasses which are perfect for summer and would also look lovely sitting on a tray in a guest bedroom.
If you are interested in the game of Where’s Waldo, here are a few of my favorites.
These two get a little tricky (hint: it’s not just the art).
And if you’d like to just stare at some of my favorite prints, scroll away.
