Editor's Note: Today I am wearing a dress by Laundry and shoes by Giorgio Armani.
Happy Thursday everyone! Today we are having Dallas Day and bringing one of my favorite clients to Dallas to make final selections on upholstery and case goods. We have been gathering tear sheets and sitting on upholstery for over a year and have narrowed it down to certain sofas and certain chairs that we are considering. More and more my clients are wanting every piece of upholstery in the house to be extremely comfortable so it is very important to do the "test drive" sitting experience. I am looking forward to seeing what upholstery and case goods are the winners at the end of the day. Today I am talking about a great article in Traditional Home about a small Dallas house that the owner describes as "pa petite cherie"--she wanted to feel like a Parisian home. I think that she did a great job of accomplishing it with her designer and friend Michelle Nussbaumer. I hope you enjoy the article as much as I did. Have a great day! We are on the sunny side of the weekend which happens to be my birthday weekend! Hot Diggity Dog!
What a precious room with the Louis XVI chairs and the 1940's coffee table. The sofa is a similar style to one that Coco Chanel owned.
Here is the homeowner Francophile Robin Wilkes with her two precious dogs Oprah and Corkscrew.
What a beautiful antique console with the fun and furry ottoman beneath. The leopard print carpet is a tip of the hat to Chanel rival Else Schiaparelli.
Dining room was inspired by Brasserie Lipp in Paris with this beautiful painting ceiling! How much fun is that?!
What beautiful coloration in this master bedroom with the celadon and pale peach. So soothing and elegant!
The designer had an artist paint these billowing banana leaves on the wall in the powder room. What fun and drama!
Picture of the front of the house. I adore the blue door!
Another view of the master bedroom. This rug is incredible! Love Love it!
This guest room as hand broad textiles from Mexico. It is fashioned after a 1940's Christian Dior showroom in its coloration and feel.
What a wonderful moment with the accessories elevated on the lucite stands and the great piece of art!

Dinner last night was marinated chicken from Central Market and steamed zucchini.
This song brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. If I could have a second with my daddy I don't know what I would do. It would be heaven.
