A Very Special Cannes House

I love this vignette from the Cinema Villa in Cannes, which changes its decor and scenery every year! Also each room is stylized in a diffrent way, it's a crazy place to be in... Below is my fave room: Mid-Centyury modern meets Tribal Art. Very glamorous! Click on image to view real large. Torn from "Maison Française" magazine, April-May '09 issue. Enjoy! -Beautymist.
