A Return to Elegance?
The 2017 trend forecasts have been announced, and if what the prognosticators are saying comes true, we have French food and a return to elegant entertaining in store for us over the next year. (Down with the Mason jar, and up with the Baccarat!) But will this renewed appreciation for refinement find its way into the world of decorating? Will fine fabrics, shapely antique chairs, traditional wallpapers, sophisticated paint schemes, porcelain birds perched on gilded brackets, and dining tables appointed with linen cloths and silver candelabra- all seen here in fine form, courtesy of a sophisticated gentleman's Paris home- once again find favor with a larger audience? It might be a stretch, but it's certainly a nice thought to ponder.
