There's no secret that I love a good Parisian themed home. Throw in some unique and amazing art, the ever popular gilded mirror some amazing millwork and for a twist, some artistically designed furniture and voila you've got some major eye candy!
Last week I decided to take a trip with my girls to the Art Gallery of Ontario, it was way overdue and I figured my eldest should be old enough to appreciate art in various forms right? Well sort of; she found it exciting running in the open spaces like she was in a gymnasium.
and although that was not the plan I had in mind, she did absolutely give me joy when she chose a lovely Warhol Print from the shop to take home.
As for me, I thoroughly enjoyed every bit - the Picasso pieces and photography capturing the aftermath of nuclear explosion were simply breathtaking and were some of my favorites.
I will most likely be taking a single trip again soon, you'll probably find me - pastry & coffee in hand (a la Holly Golightlyin Breakfast at Tiffany's) staring at Antigonous in the storm by Joseph Wright of Derby, this moody piece is absolutely a fav!
Lately I've been in this Art Deco phase, structures and lines and fancy 20's & 30's style. Art was absolutely beautiful back then and to me the typography has always caught my eye. Take a look at some of my fav inspirational pics... Enjoy!
