“Go big or go home.” I do like that Texas saying, but I’d like to offer my own twist: “Go big WHILE at home.” With that in mind, I’m sure I’ll feel quite at home at a champagne book-signing at Madison after a bevy of Dallas lectures and events. Having visited Madison last year, I must report that I find it incredibly enchanting. It is the type of boutique where one needs time to loop around multiple times, all the while seeing new gorgeousness at every pass. I can’t wait to return.
If you are in the Dallas neighborhood, please visit. And for all, please enjoy these incredibly stylish images from Madison with a bit of my running commentary.
I very much agree with Madison on this: “Blue and white is timeless… but sometimes a little pink is necessary, too.”
Colorful croc, monsieur.
Love this non-menacing bull in a china shop.
So bubbly! This hand-blown glass sculpture looks like it could pop at any moment. Fun!
Gorgeous agate rocks in yummy colors!
L’objet blossom bowl.
Color, texture, shine!
Pretty nautical accents remind me of Newport.
Madison’s five tier dessert stand is for more than just petit fours. This one serves up heavenly bath bombs.
Let’s make opening bills as stylish as possible with these sleek Texas-made, hand-carved wooden letter openers.
Do you know what the most wonderful thing is about elephant statues? They symbolize success, good luck, wisdom and communication, AND it is entirely appropriate to sneak them into multiple rooms. Yes, little hot pink elephant, I’m looking at you.
Here’s lovely Madison in the dappled sunlight.
If these images whetted your appetite for more, I recommend following Madison on Facebook (or visiting www.madison214.com). You’ll find images which feature a modern, classic style, inspired by owners (and sisters) Kirsten Fitzgibbons and Kelli Ford. As interior designers they combine contemporary and classical elements to create livable and aesthetically beautiful spaces with a sense of the unexpected. In its twelfth year, Madison, is a store filled with tasteful findings from around the world, and often, from New York City’s Madison Avenue. I find Madison to be perfectly suited for gifting and decorating…as well as book-buying, of course. If you are in the Dallas area on October 9, please come say hello.
Many mercis, Kelli and Kirsten!
