You all must know that I cannot possibly imagine living in a home without the benefit of having something beautiful to look at and inspire by way of its furniture.

New Hermes Store in Paris is Ultra Modern Luxury

Left Bank Hermes Store in Paris is Ultra Modern Luxury. Retail Remedy: Is it possible to outdo a classic? Hermés on the rue St. Honoré is my favorite luxury store in Paris. Hermés opened a new shop on the Left Bank in December, and it is a stunner.They have lightened their approach with an airy, loft-like space on three levels housed in the former Art Noveau swimming pool of the Lutetia Hotel. At the entrance is a flower shop bursting with buoyant blooms by florist Baptiste Pitou.Then comes the most dramatic part of the shop: A sweeping staircase made of curved strips of ash wood. Walking down the grand staircase one feels like a decadent showgirl– all that's missing is a feathered head dress and the song A Pretty Girl…. playing.>>MORE: Paris

Most Stylish Blogger Award and 7 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Award Season Starts Early Thanks to Jewels from the Roving Stove . Plus, my picks for The Most Stylish Bloggers!Thank you, thank you to the gorgeous and talented Julie Anne Rhodes, aka Jewels from The Roving Stove for the Most Stylish Blogger Nomination!I'm more than flattered to get the thumbs up for constantly amusing you with the Impromptu Madness videos that Brad Boles and I have so much fun working on. If we had our own TV talk show (hint, hint out there), we would love to have YOU as our resident cooking expert!In lieu of an acceptance speech, part of the the Most Stylish Blogger nomination is to reveal seven things that you did not know about the stylish blogger. The other part of the award is to nominate seven other stylish bloggers.In no particular order, here are my nominations for the Most Stylish Bloggers:1. VagabondNycVintage clothing gurus Andrea Perrini & Naveed Hussain are the real deal when it comes to spot on fashion assessments. The two are like a walking fashion history book with a very stylized edge, and that's what makes editorialized vintage clothing shop and blog so distinctive. The VagabondNyc's are part of our Contributor team. 2. EyePreferParisRichard Nahem left New York for Paris and decided to do what he does best, go to the most divinely unique places and tell you about it! His customized walking tours of Paris are brought live to his blog. Richard is my oldest friend and a team Contributor. Oh, he also stretches a mean pair of shoes but that should have gone under things that you don't know about me. 3. IWantToBeHerAndrea Linnet does what we all secretly do. She sizes up a fab outfit, fantasizes about being that girl for a moment, but then she tells you where to get the goods. If Sybil was chic, she would live on I Want To Be Her! Andrea is the co-founder and former creative director of Lucky Magazine. 4. Humor ChicaleXsandro Palombo's daily society portrait blog is about as tongue in chic as an illustrated cartoon about fashion, style and all it's glamourous players could ever be! Highly addictive satire and very on the mark. 5. Marie ForleoI thought Marie was so spunky from taking her fitness classes at Crunch & find her upbeat, down-to-earth, girl power motivation to make each woman live rich, happy and hot totally inspiring!6. RedCarpet-FashionAwards.comCatherine Kallon has an outstanding photographic fashion memory, bar none! Do you want to know which celebrity wore what and where to get much of it, she's your girl!7. DoIHaveLipstickOnMyTeeth.comKim White is a make up artist who knows how to put the fun in beauty. Whether it's Mugshot Monday where beauty violators are brought to justice or her Bathroom Beauty videos, you'll get your gorgeous on and leave with a smile… and that's the best beauty bonus around.Honorary 7+. Julie Anne Rhodes, Jewels from The Roving Stove so shoot me, I'm nominating Julie Anne back! No only is she gorgeous, glam and totally the real deal but she's the downtown girl's Nigella Lawson without the finger licking.
