Pom Pom Napkins Won in My Petite Maison’s Giveaway: European Elegance, Casual American Style

. . . gastronomical perfection can be reached in these combinations:
one person dining alone, usually upon a couch or a hill side;
two people, of no matter what sex or age, dining in a good restaurant;
six people . . . dining in a good home.”

M. F. K. Fisher

When you win a spectacular giveaway like Tracy’s over at My Petite Maison, you have to try very hard to show off your winnings in the best light possible.

Pom Pom is a breathtaking high-end store in LA (and at Neiman Marcus, Horchow, Amazon, and you may get a deal on Ebay) stocking European-style textiles, home accessories, and antiques.   Owner Hilde Leiaghat has been featured in dozens of magazines such as O, Victoria, and House Beautiful.

My napkins retail $80 for four.   Ultra feminine, ruffled, yet made of heavy-woven pure white cotton for a lifetime of use.    Thanks, Tracey, I’d never be that extravagant for myself.

Luckily, I had the perfect chance to photograph them a few weeks ago.   My dear antiquariess friend Karina Gentinetta  lent me the prettiest chairs from her retail space in New York for a project I’m working on.   They were black with gold fabric when she found them.    Now, they’re fit for seating angels.

Natural fabric upholstery.   Rough nail heads.   Swedish finish in white.

Magic happens when the best things from great women come together.

Get a dose of casual Euro-US elegance decorating heaven with them:

Until next time, stay stabby!

Oh Sandy, I SO wanted those napkins! BUT knowing they went to you eases my jealousy a bit! Just kidding (about the jealousy, I really DID want to win the napkins!). I'm having a Romantic Prairie Style Photo Challenge. Stop by and think about sending me some pictures girl!

Thank you sweet Sandy! I became single in fall 2010 so what you have seen in the magazine were created togeter with my ex while we were still living together.
Now my "new" life has started and there are a lot of work to do on the house as well as the other buildings on the farm.
It´s just to roll up your sleeves and get to work ;)

Those are truly the loveliest napkins I have ever seen - so nice you won them; they are perfect for your dreamy streamside studio! I love Pom Pom! I won the huge Pom Pom laundry tote bag from Secret Garden's giveaway awhile back & I just adore it. I use it as my library book haul bag.. the ladies at the library thought I was wearing a dress when they saw it though.. I get lots of compliments on it. A gorgeous collage you have made.. keep taking those wonderful pictures! Love to visit here!
