the whole world, or at the least the world we all live in, is buzzing about marie anne oudejans jaipur apartment in the new ad. I blogged about it this week/ read here. marie-anne has designed some other amazing places. one being the bar palladio at the Narain Niwas Palace Hotel. now it’s unlikely that i’ll ever get to visit marie-anne’s apartment, but we all can visit the bar palladio.

the bar palladio is owned by barbara miolini, a swiss-italian ex-pat who wanted to introduce an italian-style lounge in her adopted home. barbara asked marie- anne to create the magic that makes this place so wonderful. 

there are s0me formulas that resonate between anne-maries apartment and the bar- stripes, tented ceilings, hand painted chinoiserie, treillage, and batiks. the biggest difference is the color palette. the apartment in bold blue and red, the bar is a bit softer with pretty pastels. 

there are some similarities and a few differences, but one thing for sure is they are both beautiful!
