♥ if it's not baroque, don't fix it.

all marie antoinette images via we heart it.

at schumacher, we sell a gorgeously ornate
printed fabric & wallcovering called go baroque.
i am obsessed with it.
it would make the perfect accent wall in a powder room
or the most glamorous tied back draperies in the entryway of
a fabulous closet.

please excuse the horrible lighting in these images!

..anyway, it got me thinking about what it would be like
to live like a modern day marie antoinette.
how would the ornate, over the top embellishments
that she surrounded herself with in versailles be translated
into a modern gal's apartment of today?

the answer to this question can be answered
in a single luxurious word: brocade.

brocade home is a home furnishings brand
created by lisa versacio for restoration hardware.
bursting at the seams with ultra–feminine,
marie antoinette–inspired furniture, this online shop
carries home accessories, wallcovering, headboards and bedding
so utterly eye pleasing, it will have you saying, "let them eat cake!"
to anyone who objects to you re.doing your entire bedroom in it.
here is a peak at some of my favorite vignettes:

i love the damask print duvet covers and the ornamental wall art,
the curvature of the furniture and the sleek elegance
that the pieces bring to each room.
i would wear it if i could!

i mean, the colors alone will have you losing your head
(pardon the bad joke, marie antoinette..)

and the furniture pieces are so bold and dramatic
that they demand to be noticed and worshipped.
thankfully, i am a humble servant to all things fashionable.
