It's March 1 and I'm still raving about what I saw in Paris in late January. Favorite patterns debuted at Maison include the following from Pierre Frey:
"Dauphine" from Pierre Frey
A wide striped effect results from "Dauphine's" embroidered rows of branch coral motifs alternating with leopard spot patterns on a neutral linen ground. The color is on trend, while the combo of animal and botanical motifs merges two of the most popular trends of the last several seasons.
"Empire" from Pierre Frey
"Brunch" from Pierre Frey
Both of the above are cotton prints—my personal faves because of the clarity and whimsey of their design. Davidemedri, from Cesena, Italy, uses traditional Byzantine mosaic techniques to create breathtaking bling including a handmade mirror-tile console table (3,500 euros), and mirror-tile mirrors (1,150 euros).

Oops. How did he get in here? Federer is actually my favorite tennis player, but you have to admit Nadal looks good.
