Auctioning Charlotte Moss Collection

Are you a Charlotte Moss fan? Do you repeatedly flip through her books, drooling over glossy pages of French, English and early American antiques and wishing for rooms filled with layers of rich color, texture and fabrics? If so, you’re not alone. Quench your thirst with Charlotte’s eighth book, “Charlotte Moss: A Visual Life: Scrapbooks, Collages, and Inspiration.”

We all need inspiration to feed our on-going hunger for designing or collecting…whether it’s reading magazines, blogs or creating scrapbooks. Charlotte’s latest book reveals what inspires her to create her own lines of fabric, carpet, wallpaper and china…as well as what inspires other famous women when it comes to design and style. (Great interview here from House Beautiful!)
