Gown and Fabric Design #2: Joséphine Bonaparte at Musée du Luxembourg, Paris

Here we see another of Joséphine’s wonderful gowns. This gown has beautiful floral custom designed pattern with needlework on a sheer fabric overlaying a solid. As the previous posts, the fabric reflects her love of flowers. This time her colors are more pastel. This gown is definitely more feminine. Plenty of inspiration here. Window treatments? Gorgeous! Note the piece in the background showing more of her paisley design.

Paire de Jardinières Livrée

 

 

Beautiful pair of jardinieres (plant stands) designed for Josephine. Notice the depiction of the humble blue English Cornflower.  This was her favorite flower. The bronze detail and the wood inlay are remarkable.  It’s fun to visualize the plants this pair would have held!
