the windsor style



Good morning, dolls! I am just thrilled to share these photos of the Duke and the Duchess of Windsor’s Bois de Boulogne (a park in the 16th arrondissement of Paris) estate with you today. I scanned them in from the most fabulous book called “The Windsor Style” by fashion journalist Suzy Menkes (a very welcome addition to my library). I’ve always been curious as to what the interior of the Paris home of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor looked like... The couple was said to have moved into the estate after Maison Jansen, the legendary design firm, redecorated the home under the supervision of the Duchess. Isn’t it amazing? I only wish that it was still in tact so I could visit! I think I could write about seven more pages regarding the photos below, but I'll leave them open to your own interpretation. What do you think?

A classic style of interior decorating. The rooms look very elegant and cozy which fits the people who lived there. I love the picture with the bags in it and that of the hats as well.
