a keen eye for the eclectic.

without sounding too much like a brat, i’m really becoming disenchanted with a lot of the cookie-cutter looks out there right now. i think decor needs a little more eclectic oomph added, if you will — maybe mix things up a little bit with some unexpected pieces, especially vintage paired with new. one of the things i was most inspired by on my trip to europe was the distinct lack of anything expected. quirky, unusual collections are the norm over there, in an effortless pulled-together way. that’s one of the reasons i love the socialite family blog — it’s always inspiring to peek into the european interiors it shares.  for instance, this one in Le Vésinet, just a few kilometers away from Paris belonging to interior designer and flea market expert extraordinaire Marine Garnier, who brings her eye to one of france’s auction houses, Paisa where she curates American furniture designers from the ’50s to the ’70s. for the full tour of her amazing family home, visit the socialite family.
