When Personal and Professional Collide

As many of you know, I grew up in the Southwest and thus my love for all things Pendleton--it probably started with that Pendleton baby blanket from my grand mother who worked in the gift shop of the Bright Angel Lodge.  Pendleton has always been a part of my life.

I also happen to be an avid Francophile.  I love anything French.  And when these two worlds collide, even better!  I usually refer to my decorating style at home "Southwestern Frenchie."

Part of my French obsession is with Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin and their collective children. 
This is Lou Doillon.  She is Jane Birkin's daughter and Charlotte Gainsbourg's half-sister.  Lou has acted in various films and now she is pursuing a music career as well.  Her musical style reminds me a bit of her mother's and Patti Smith's.  She's really great.

Here is her instagram photo she posted on Friday after wrapping up a small tour with her band. 

And how about that!  She's sitting on Pendleton's Chief Joseph blanket in antique rose (a retired color).

Merci beaucoup Lou for sharing with your followers what's in your suitcase and for taking your very own Pendleton out on the road.  E venez a Portland s'il vous plait!
