Summer Whimsy

It’s officially summer! We’re in the mood for some whimsy. How ’bout this amazing decorative floor finish designed by Christina & Meg at Christina Murphy Interiors – painted by the uber talented Christopher Rollinson?

That Christina Murphy floor (a showstopper!)  is reminiscent of the bronze “Ginkgo” motif furniture designed by ’60s French artists and husband-wife team, Francois-Xavier & Claude Lalanne. Currently, there’s a Lalanne exhibit in Paris at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs – wishing we could just  jet over there to take a peek! Not a Paris museum exhibit, but a couple snapshots of the Ginkgo style by Lalanne…
