I Spy: Vintage Paris Map

I always get a thrill seeing items we sell at Trocadero make appearances on other people's blogs. Welcome to our "I Spy" series.

Today's "I Spy" post is once again from La Dolce Vita. If Paloma ever visits Omaha, she will have to stop by Trocadero; we carry all of her favorite brands!

Paloma was recently interviewed on Pepper Design Blog and shared some of her design inspiration and guidelines:
Add personal touches. Your home should not look like a photo from a sterile catalog. It should have life and speak of you and your interests. If you like to travel, add a framed map.
To illustrate her point, Paloma featured a photograph of a room in her home, presumably her living room. I immediately noticed two things: that adorable dog and the vintage Paris map on the bottom left of the foursome of framed posters over her couch. Visitors of Trocadero will notice that we have the same map framed at the front of the store near the door and that we sell it unframed for $13.

PS: Framed or unframed, a vintage map of Paris makes a great gift for world travelers, history buffs and Francophiles alike.
