January in Paris?! YES!!!!!!

We're BAAACK!!!!!!!!!!!! In Paris, at La Carrotte our home away from home,
in this fabulous city. Why January?
Because of this. This apartement is fabulous anytime. But this week is Maison et Object the design and home decor market of Europe and it overlaps one day with fashion week. AND....The second year of the DECO OFF, the design walk with 50 showrooms throughout the city opening their doors to show off and compare with each other as to who has the "au courrant" styles in textiles, furniture and other design accroutrements. (google deco off paris)
We are here, your roving reporters sucking up champagne and macaroons the size of hockey pucks for you, our readers!!!!!!
More to come!!!!!!!!! For more views of this fabulous apartement, see our Feb 2010 blog " La Carrotte".
