Maison & Objet Paris – trends & colour – Part 1

This weekend, just outside of Paris I visited Maison & Objet for the second time this year. So where do I start? Many of you will know that Maison & Objet is one of the most important international design and decoration events in the calendar.  The latest collections by small designers and the major brands are on show and it is a huge show, with more than 85,000 trade visitors visiting its aisles over the 5-day event.

One of the themes I noticed was a lot of orange as an accent colour. Which ties in nicely with the colours that the fashion pack are predicting….

Will Orange be making its way into your home?

    Oooh! Your "orange" question is a very loaded one for me! An apparent 70's revival trend has had me very concerned. However, orange will indeed make it into my home. That, in spite of the fact that in New York City and in Louisiana in the 1970's, I lived with the depressing overuse of avocado, orange, shag carpets, and swag pendant electric cords on ceilings. (I did get one year of relief when we lived in London for a year. Chintz seemed to rule there, and that was far better. My mother says I am wrong + insists that avocado and orange was on BOTH sides of the "pond".) I swore off anything associated with that decade. In the past couple of years, though, some talented modern designers have shown me how to use those persecuted colors + designs — to make me WANT to use them again. I have a very cool 6'x 9' white shag area rug, a large piece of modern art that features the color orange…I own an avocado shirt that makes my skin look great…I guess the bottom line here is that the artful touch can probably make anything look great…By the way, I wish I had known about your blog sooner. I'm new to this "world". I love it!
