Vintage and French Please

Vintage posters make me happy. Really, really happy. I’m especially fond of French or British vintage posters. There’s something about the colors and the subjects that pull me in.

Tournee du Chat Noir Avec Rodolptte Salis is one of my favorites. I have this canvas hanging in my living room. I love black cats and I love the French language {studied 3 years in high school} and I love the colors. Some people have told me that the cat looks possessed, lol. I just don’t see it.

Ball in the Moulin Rouge has a certain elegant feel to it. The original was painted around 1889 by Toulouse-Lautrec. May I have this dance s’il vous plait?

La Cote D’Azur is basically the French Riviera in English. This is probably a vintage travel promotion poster. It makes the French Riviera appear exciting—doesn’t it?

Oh my. This vintage picture just screams fashionable glamour and the French are definitely known for their high fashion. The artist Georges Barbier (1882 – 1932) gave new meaning to flamboyance with his portrayal of extravagant theater costumes of glittering rhinestones, towering headdresses and vast trains. Originally an illustrator for several prominent Paris fashion magazines, he revolutionized these publications into tools that defined women’s clothing styles. I feel a bit underdressed ;)

This vintage advertisement involves 3 of my favorite things:  chocolate, cats, and tea. I’m ready to buy whatever chocolate and tea they’re selling! I just love how cozy this ad appears. It has a warm feel to it {I think it’s the mother/daughter scene}. This photo would be fabulous in a dining room.

This painting makes me want to grab a chair at their table. I imagine these are friends and family all gathered for supper.  I can smell the cafe au lait and hear multiple conversations in French. This was painted by Jules-Alexandre Grun in 1913.

    I’ve been wanting to go to France for the longest time too! I love the pieces you picked out–the cat is one of my favorites too (and I don’t think he looks possessed either!)
