{of birds & butterflies}

Completely charmed by Parisians Colette & Pierre’s Ceiling Bird . . . After a visit to the Château d’O in Normandy, Colette fell in love with a flock of ceiling birds that appeared to be holding up the crystal chandeliers in the Château, and immediately set off to recreate a similar effect with the help of an artist friend who was commissioned to paint the elegant bird in their Paris dining room.

The effect is magical.

Reminds me also of the stunning silver-leafed ceiling adorned with silk butterflies from an earlier post . . .
