For 2012 ,we forecast a return to luxury...the type that reigned before the boom of the1980's,spelling scarcity,quality,pedigree,authenticity and class,"Rolls Royce" luxury .
To quote a famous New York socialite: " I want something original,special,beautiful,charming,and even precious..."
Return to Glam
"I predict a revival of sensuous, velvety 1930s-style glam. Upholstered furnishings will have curvy shapes because severe, supermodern minimalism is tired. People want to feel cozy and sexy." -MILLY DE CABROL
Philippe Starck 's design for Icon Brickell in downtown Miami is inspiring.
Marcel Wanders 'design for Mondrian

Talking about hip hotels,what about CitizenM
in Amsterdam ,the renovated Mondrian
in LA and the green The Nines

Soo gorgeous ! And innovative !
DARE TO BE INSPIRED!
" No matter how taste may change,the basics of good decorating remain the same.
We are talking about some place people live in,surrounded by things they like and that make them comfortable .
It's as simple as that."
KITCHEN AND BATH IDEAS
"... Flat out and plainly you could not do any better. Fabienne is precise, caring, and if there is a problem she will work it out with you and for you. You should have NO worries with her...
Fabienne has impeccable taste and if she suggests something, please DO consider it. I am from New England and I had to rethink color in Florida. Fabienne was patient with me until I GOT what she was trying to explain to me about color and the light in Florida, BUT she did not forget what I wanted.
Being in her business there are a lot of unscrupulous people that will try to take work away from others and to do that these people will say anything to get the business. Please consider Fabienne, as I said, you can do no better..."
