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!
