While flipping through an old Elle Decoration last night I was excited to find two pictures featuring the apartment of Marie-Anne Oudejans. I wish I could show you more, but I lost the other two magazines I owned that featured her entire apartment in a move. I'm sure fellow magazine lovers can commiserate with me over that loss. This is why magazines shouldn't and won't be replaced, as nothing is the same as being able to hold it in your hands.
This isn't an optical illusion, Marie really did swathe the entire room in a robin egg's blue shade, a theme that ran throughout her apartment. She draped her beds, walls, and windows with the same fabric she used for her dresses.
I love the various flea market pieces, and mix of rugs scattered across the floor.
For those of you that may not be familiar with Marie-Anne Oudejans, she was the original designer for Tocca. When her line came out in 1994 it was worn by all the supermodels and I desperately wanted a dress. They resurrected the original line a year or two ago but I really wish Oudejans would come out with something of her own again.
