I was thoroughly excited and very honored when I was asked to attend the unveiling of Legendary Italian Designer Paola Navone’s Exclusive collection of home décor items including tabletop, furniture, lighting and accessories at Crate and Barrel. Before I made my way to the Yorkdale Mall, where the unveiling of the collection was being presented, I took time to learn what I could about Paola Navone. The result of this research…I have a new ‘design idol’. This creative and innovative woman has contributed to the design world with an uncomplicated freshness and open minded respect for design from the past. I learned that she was the pioneer of shabby chic. Seeing the vast array of designs which she has created, I realized she is not a woman who will be defined by a particular style or niche…I love that. I am proud to share a cheeky refusal for being pegged for a particular ‘style’ or ‘look’ as something I may have in common with Paola.
