Au Revoir! I’m Off to Paris for Some Treasure Hunting!

It’s that time of year again to undertake one of my globe trotting excursions to unearth new treasures!  And what better destination then Paris, a metropolis flourishing with rich art, architecture and culture since the Renaissance of the late 15th century?  I will be scouring the Parisian flea markets and boutiques to collect unique antiques and vintage pieces for my upcoming sale on One Kings’s Lane on Wednesday, June 13th.  I’m a zealot for distinctive, rare finds and I thoroughly enjoy bringing them to others for their personal enjoyment.  I’ll be accumulating everything from decorative accessories such as vases and candle holders to textiles and artwork – all hand-selected by me. 

Make sure you mark your calendars for the sale on June 13th so you don’t miss out on some great European finds!  Below are some photos from my previous trips.  

Paris has flea markets galore!  I can’t wait to discover amazing antiques and vintage pieces to bring back!

I always stay in St. Germain while in Paris.  Le Comptoir is one of my favorite restaurants that is just around the corner from my hotel.
Paris is even more beautiful at night.  I love visiting the Eiffel Tower to see it in all of its glorious splendor!

Café Marly is another one of my favorite restaurants.  The food is amazing and the architecture is spectacular.  It’s right next to the Louvre where I enjoy admiring some of the world’s most celebrated artwork.  This restaurant allows me to enjoy artwork, architecture and food – all at the same time.  Incredible!

This photo was taken in one of my absolutely favorite places to enjoy a cocktail.  This bar is in the Hotel Plaza Athénée, a classic French hotel with a very modern bar.  The juxtaposition of the two aesthetics is such a pleasant surprise.  The hotel definitely outdid itself by creating such a modern feature within its classical environment.  Here I don’t mind actually spending $30.00 for a glass of champagne because I get to immerse myself in such stunning surroundings.


I’ll be posting an update about my trip and share some of the treasures I found in a couple of weeks so don’t forget to check backAu Revoir!

Styling Shoot for Kathy Kaehler’s Sunday Set-Up with Nick Carter

I love it when I’m called upon to do unique projects!  Even better?  When those projects are for clients who possess inspiring missions to help others!  In this case, that person is Kathy Kaehler, a trainer, spokesperson and author.  Kathy is one of Los Angeles’ most sought after personal trainers to the stars whose celebrity client roster includes Julia Roberts, Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Aniston and Claudia Schiffer, just to name a few.  Kathy also manages a successful website featuring the Sunday Set-Up Club whose mission is to “change the way America eats one kitchen at a time.”  And while Kathy is not a nutritionist or a dietitian, she is a mom who cooks.  She understands food and its importance in proper fueling the body to maintain a healthy lifestyle for her family, her Sunday Set-Up™ Club members and her celebrity clientele.  Her club gives busy parents tips and techniques to select, prep and store food each Sunday so they can quickly prepare healthy recipes throughout the week.  For this particular Sunday Set-Up project that is being featured on KTLA’s Hollyscoop show, Kathy partners with Nick Carter, best known as one of the Backstreet Boys, to show him and his girlfriend, Lauren, how to make daily meal prep more efficient to enable healthier lifestyles.

When people hear or say, “interior design,” they typically think of new construction or remodeling that requires interior design to transform spaces into comfortable, functional homes.  But that’s only part of it.  Just like this project illustrates, interior designers are a great resource to call on for styling photo shoots and media appearances.  I had a great time working with such an esteemed team of professionals and contributing to Kathy’s advocacy of healthy living! 

You can watch Sunday Set-Up this Sunday, April 22nd.  Check out http://www.hollyscoop.com/hollyscoop-tv-listings for listings and times.
