Last weekend The Wall Street Journal ran the story, ‘Mad Maximalism’, in the Off Duty section and it confirmed something that I’d already suspected–I may wear minimalism-leaning clothing, but my house is decorated in a riot of patterned fabrics–and I’m not alone. No concrete floors, raw wood beams, or steel (except in the kitchen) here. I’m so obsessed that I bought the URL Palais-Home with thoughts of starting another blog.
But, there are a daunting number of great sites, magazines, and Instagram feeds already dedicated to “old-world sumptuousness.” @cabanamagazine, @aliceinherpalace, @markdsikes, @ladolcevitablog, @habituallychic, @theglampad, and @quintessence by my friend Stacey Bewkes are just the tip of an enormous iceberg.
