Based on Pantone’s report, people now choose longevity over colors.  ‘Less is more’ mindset is becoming increasingly important to consumers prioritizing value and functionality.   Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, said:”Imbued with strength and personality, colors for Autumn/Winter 2020/2021 encourage our ongoing desire for unique self-expression through creative and unusual visual statements that stand out.”

So here are top 10 fashion colors:

Lee Radziwill’s Chic Paris’s Pied-à-terre

Couple of days ago, i wrote about Lee Radzwill’s (March 3rd 1933–Feb. 15th 2019)New York apartment.   You can click here to read the story.    Lee Radzwill is a former European princess and actress, socialite, interior decorator, sister of the late Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (1994).  She  owned properties in New York, London and Paris.  Each home really reflects her personalities as a style icon.  Today, I am going to show you her Paris pied-à-terre, her love at first sight.   Overlooking  Avenue Montaigne with a view of the Eiffel Tower, the home was originally decorated by Christian Liaigre,  it is perhaps one of the most iconic Parisian abodes of the 20th century.  Her Paris home was featured three times on magazines, Vogue in 2003,  ELLE Decor in 2009 and Times in 2013 and it had being evolved each time.

We can see the style in her Paris apartment is very different from her New York home. As herself said of her New York apartment :” but it’s extremely full. So it’s wonderful to have the contrast [in Paris] of having it totally Zen, totally peaceful. In what other city do you find doves outside your window…”   All of the furniture in her Paris home is clean-lined, yet there are gilded antique mirrors, gilded coffee tables, floral upholstery ,tons of artworks and books and a lot of detailed soft touches.  Her interiors are just like the way she dressed—modern , elegant and chic, yes American chic.

Obviously, pink is her favorite color.  With a large amount of creams and whites in the back ground,  mixed patterns of stripes, chinoiserie played off with pink on the sofa..  It is just such an elegant and peaceful place you want to wind down.

Again, pink, stripe pattern, plant artworks, florals, neutrals for the  background and the sunshines… I would love to just sit here for the whole day watching doves flying by.
