I am an unabashed francophile.
I love anything and everything french, well maybe not their politics...
Anyway, before Vera Bradley there was and is, Pierre Deux.
A brief history of Pierre Deux:
"In 1967, a shop opened in Greenwich Village in New York City that would soon bring the beauty of French Country decor to America. The shop was opened by two men: Pierre Le Vec, an American of French background, and Pierre Moulin, a native Frenchman. Their passion for French art de vivre and the French country way of life drove them to establish Pierre Deux as a name synonymous with French Country décor in America."
"Their antique furniture imported from the provinces sold well, but the curtains, pillows and fabrics they used to accent the furniture sold spectacularly."
I have loved their handbags for years and actually owned many. Unfortunately they couldn't compete ( in my mind) with the many, many different designs offered by Vera Bradley. But now that Vera Bradley is a bit overdone, ( I think) I find myself coming full circle back to Pierre Deux. Especially since I'm thinking that my new kitchen (fingers crossed) will be a bit french country!I think this pocketbook would be perfect as a neutral bag this summer.
I love patterned shades, where to start?
My ideal settee on a perfect rug, with THE best cushion and pillows...
