Los Angeles April 24 Lecture: Madeleine Castaing and Le Style Malmaison

My first MC lecture!

Madeleine Castaing and Le Style Malmaison
While many were drumming to the beat of modernism, French antiquaire and decorator Madeleine Castaing created her own look that was a unique blend of Neoclassicism, Proustian Romanticism, and pure wit. EEE will discuss the elements of the Castaing style along with a look at her fellow traditionalists, including Emilio Terry and Charles de Beistegui, who found great inspiration in historical styles.

Friday, April 24th, 4:00 PM
Los Angeles Antiques Show
Barker Hangar at Santa Monica Air Center
$15 admission to show includes lecture

Wish I could be there.I am sure it will be delicious. Can you imagine having Madeleine Castaing and Rose Cummings over for dinner? There is no substitute for sheer genius and the nerve to show it.

I'm never in the right place at the right time. Sigh. Maybe next year.

I do hope you're going to treat us to an abridged version on your blog afterwards with lots of fantastic images like this one.

Please bring your lecture to New York City! Would love to learn more about Castaing. (I know she lined her hall with bamboo fishing poles.)

Well, my publisher might get cross if I give too much away before the book comes out (Fall 2010) BUT maybe I'll share a few delicious morsels!
