One way I know I should invest in something is if I can’t stop thinking about it. Last week when I was checking out antique and thrift shops with Amy, I happened to fall in love with an incredible print by Paule Marrot that was for sale at Terrain in Westport. The price tag was out of my range, but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Paule Marrot was a French painter and textile designer who produced an incredible amount of work from the 1920s to the 1950s. Her work is my idea of pattern perfection — it feels loose and natural and almost always focuses on nature. I’ve been torturing myself looking through the Paule Marrot editions at Natural Curiosities online, but I think the prices will keep me away for a while. If I ever stumble into some extra money (lottery tickets?), one of these big guys is going to be mine, stat. Natural Curiosities sells all of the Paule Marrot Editions, so if you’d like to find a retailer near you, click here for their retail list. You can also pick up the small yellow Marrot editions at Terrain online right here. xo, grace
