Mood Board Contest: Destination Paris/Milan by Paola Thomas
Paris! Milan! What time do we leave, Paola? If some of your daydreams include visions of you lounging in your plush city abode in a European city, this entry may make you long for that lifestyle even more. My apologies in advance for that. :)
Name: Paola Thomas
Occupation: Part-time online retailer
Blog/website: mirrormirror.typepad.com and mirrormirrorontheweb.co.uk
Location: Seattle, Washington
Theme: Destination Paris/Milan
Inspirations: An apartment in a Continental European city (I?ve been particularly inspired recently by Vanessa Bruno?s Parisian apartment, featured in a recent Elle Decor); fruit sorbets and cocktails, Hotel Costes compilation CDs; Laduree macaroons; the vibe of the Ile Saint Louis in Paris or the Piazza San Babila in Milan; mid-century modern curves.
Design notes: It?s the scheme for my living room in Seattle ! Thanks for giving me just the incentive to work on it. See my blog for further commentary including a ?soundtrack? to the mood board and links to some of my inspirations.
Thank you for entering the decor8/Amy Butler mood board contest, Paola! I’ll post as many entries as I can fit in today, and then that’s it, the contest will wrap up and tomorrow we’ll all get to vote for our new winners. Yeah!
