Style Council in Paris: The Crystal Room

While in Paris we dined at one of the most elegant and spectacular restaurants in the world, The Crystal Room within the historic walls of the Baccarat Museum. Along with the stunning decor, impeccable  service  and superbly prepared French feast  we were treated to a private after hours tour of the museum. Cèst Magnific!

Everything is done in style here: A crystal chandelier submerged in water

Inspiration in the Alleys of Saint-Oien

Bonsoir mauvais garçons from the outskirts of Paris! Style Council explores the famous Paris flea market of Saint-Oien, visiting the most sought after area in the Marche de Puces, Paul Bert, where we experienced artistic vignettes of everything from 18th century fashion to full bodied Ibex taxidermy.  So inspired... Being around such spectacular items has brought our design perspective to the next level. 

One of our favorite outfits and stalls!

Much Ado at the Pompidou

We witnessed an inspiring exhibit of the worlds most amazing pop-artist (second only to Warhol), Roy Lichtenstein at the Pompidou in Paris. Lichtenstein had a way of reinterpreting the emotional nature of great art and viewing from a distance with an eye that was always critical, but never cynical. Using almost solely primary colors, black lines, and Ben-Day dots he created some of the most recognizable images in modern art.
Amazing how he could evoke such a sense of emotion, context, and relatability despite his mathematical and mechanical painting style.
Arguably his most famous series includes beautiful women in distressed scenarios with glamorous make-up and sophisticated hairstyles... Perfect inspiration for a creative hair exploration!
