p.s. i love you (more pretty finds)

here's a few more of maison21's scores from his recent trip to palm springs:thanks to recent posts by 3 of his must-read fellow bloggers: habitually chic, mrs. blandings and patricia gray, maison21 has rediscovered his love of yellow, so he's doing the living room of one of his current projects with framed hand-painted yellow silk chinoiserie wall panel accents (on dove-gray walls) and lots of yellow and white furniture and accessories (the electric yellow chairs from his last post are for the same room). the project is still taking shape and far from finished, but we will definitely post pictures when we're done (early summer 08, we hope- if the design gods are with us).

the above chic items above were found at m21's most favoritist vintage furniture resource ever in palm springs, the 111 antique mall (to find out all about it, read maison21's post here). we also scored some killer lucite lamps and a murano chandelier while at the 111, but they aren't ready for their blog debut just yet...

and though maison21 feels like a cheating spouse (or one of those texas polygamists), he's found another store in ps that he loves as much as the 111 (though it couldn't be more different), so stay tuned for a post on his new palm springs retail crush soon!

All of a sudden I am using a lot of yellow, too... I thought it was a reaction to living in Wales where it was bleak and grey much of the time!

meg, there is definitely a yellow zeitgeist in the air. living in southern california, i can assure you it's not a reaction to bleak and grey!

Hand-painted yellow chinoiserie panels, dove grey walls... now that sounds like the most pleasing combination! I'm going to walk around all afternoon repeating that in my best Jeremy Irons' accent.

Lucky client.

I too am drawn to yellow lately, but just a touch of it. Too much sets my nerves on edge and I get 70s flashbacks. I can't stand the KWID-esque over-the-top yellow & black & white movement. Makes me think of a birdcage or something. I like yellow to not even look deliberate. A a bowl of lemons there, a little yellow monogram on pillowcase. But that's just moi.
