One of my favorite styles began during the 18th century in France. I love watching movies that highlight this period, such as The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Slipper and the Rose and Marie Antoinette (if for nothing else, than to admire the gorgeous costumes, set pieces, and European locations). This era, known as Rococo, has some of the most beautiful and elaborate designs ever conceived. From art to interior decor, fashion to furniture and food, the entire period completely inspires me! I love the soft yellows and pinks, the floral motifs and of course the exquisite dresses worn by the women of the time. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong age!
