Guest Blogger: European Chic

For a change in pace and when possible, I thought it would be nice to have a Saturday guest blogger bring to us their thoughts on art, design, decoration and related fields.  Opening this series I’ve invited the terriblement fabuleuse European Chic, a Paris-based blog focused on lifestyle and interiors from Europe.  Please enjoy it and kindly send me your comments if you like the idea for the future.  Thanks!!

Home and Garden Fair – Hamburg, Germany


I want to share with you my recent trip to Hamburg, Germany to the Home & Garden fair.  This is a yearly event where a wide range of European design for the home and garden is shown and available for sale. Not one to shy away from a good field trip from my home in Paris, I enlisted help, ordered sunshine, recharged my trusty camera, and attended the Fair on a lovely summer day.

The styles on offer range from traditional country living to shabby chic and a little dose of modern living. I was intrigued by the delectable collections of very affordable mercury glass objects, the most beautiful show gardens in full bloom, enviable vintage Louis Vuitton suitcases and the range of cars in view … for young and not so young drivers.
Thanks so much to the lovely Richard for letting me share this trip with you.
Greetings from Paris!
