I ran across an article recently about a "lost apartment" that had been left unopened since WWII. Apparently the owner had left the apartment sometime during the war and never returned. The apartment was left completely untouched for decades. Recently it was opened and the findings are incredible! Can you imagine being one of the people who were part of discovering the contents of the apartment? It would be like stumbling upon indian ruins in a cave or finding a lost treasure I imaging. Like a time capsule opened after years of waiting.
This apartment would have been an antique goldmine for me.
Isn't that old Mickey Mouse awesome?
I loved reading about this unopened paris apaertment because French country decor is one of my favorite styles and something that influences my designs a lot. I love French-style antiques and the easiness that is brought on by the French country style. I love the mis of neutrals, linen, rustic wood and gold that is so common in French decor.
