As most of you know well, Maison K is an oasis of neutral and natural colors; white, ivory, chocolate, beige, silver, gold, etcetera, etcetera!  But that doesn't mean I don't love color.  The Abaca Ikat pillows in our recent news letter are black and ivory with a splash of red.  And hence the inspiration for these red delights…

Pictured above, a fab vitrine from the Best Dressed Windows in all the World (according to me) - the one and only Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. Here, featuring an Oscar de la Renta gown and Miu Miu fur.  Ooh la la!

The most delectable, edible red - strawberries, or "les fraises."  This precious dessert of kiwi, strawberries and whipped cream was the sweet finale following an exquisite luncheon with a billion dollar view from the Jules Verne Restaurant in the Eiffel Tower.  Quelle magnifique!

Following lunch, find your way to Maison de Baccarat  - to peruse their dazzling crystal and fascinating museum which exhibits gorgeous works of the past. Pictured here, they teamed up with another iconic French establishment, Deyrolle, whose exquisite birds and other creatures brought extra awe and beauty to the presentations.  Make sure to take tea in The Crystal Room.

Now, way south of Paris on the Cote d'Azur in Cap d'Antibes - this night view was taken at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, truly one of the most extraordinary historic hotels and locations in the world.

On a wildly different note, but extraordinary all the same, Burning Man 2011 featured a phenomenal, giant, articulated metal octopus complete with fire show, escorted by these amazing seashores…

Calling Mother Nature, are these wild flowers really for real??? Yes, growing in the fields surrounding the ancient Arundel Castle near Slindon, England.

Well, we know someone else who is very fond of red...Monsieur Louboutin please stand up!

Visiting Cafe Gitane at The Jane in New York is like a mini French holiday.  The grand room is beautifully lit with the light from the river and space charmingly propped.  Cozy in!

Red Hot RED II coming soon ~
