Carouge is a small artisan suburb of Geneva -To this day, the city of Carouge has retained its Mediterranean-like atmosphere. Its bustling streets and many shaded squares invite one to stroll.
Trendy boutiques, antiques and curios dealers, restaurants and bistros ensure a warm and congenial ambience.
The pretty streets, with the houses painted in a hue of beautiful shades have given me fantastic inspiration for some forthcoming interior design and furniture painting projects.

As I wondered along some of the quaint streets, I had a chance to look inside a couple of antique/vintage furniture shops - one full of French mirrors and another crammed with vintage pieces – more inspiration and I also purchased a French Stockman Mannequin – becoming increasingly difficult to source, as well as a French Leather Vintage Club Chair and a lovely Vintage Trunk/Pirates Chest and more

I will be returning to Geneva after Xmas to undertake an Interior Design Project
