John Derian

While on Cape Cod last week, I was able to finally stop in the John Derian store in Provincetown.I had looked for it last year on my annual beach pilgrimage but couldn't find it! The saleswoman told me they only put up the sign this year -good thing! Still not the easiest place to find, down a small street behind some bushes, but the store did not disappoint with so much to see (in such a small space!). Stage right from the doorway were what we come to expect from John Derian, the decoupage! I love the poufs under the table too!And more decoupage -I loved this collection of sea-botanicals.
These charming little tumblers were towards the rear of the store -perfect for a tablesetting at the beach!I was so tempted to get one of these ostrich feather dusters and live out my french maid fantasies ( just kidding!!!)There was a selection of Cire Trudon candles hiding in the back of the store. I just LOVED the 'trianon' scent - maybe i'll pick one up in Paris next month when Heather and I pay a visit.I've always loved these busts that they make, I just wish they came in the muliple scents (like trianon!).The bedding was all so cozy, I could have taken a nap right then and there!The store was so adorable I could have happily bought everything inside. I had to be content with a decoupage tray of antique stamps and a small notebook to use while in Paris for sketching. I also picked up a nice tote bag with Derian's logo on it for my groceries. If you are in Ptown, it's worth a visit and of course so are the New York stores. Tell them ArchitectDesign sent you (and ignore the looks of utter confusion!).

I dare say, if I found that shop, I think I would never leave. My family would be outside saying things like, Mom is never going to leave...That last wall of artwork is so fun.....I love it.

I love the mix of patterns in the bedding. I don't think I would have wanted to leave either.

I didn't want to leave -I actually visited the shop 3 times during my week in Provincetown! It was a bit hard to find but that made it all the more rewarding!

Stefan-I have been collecting his decoupage for years and always visit his store in NYC. I even had the chance to meet and chat with him last time I was in New York.
