Interior Inspirations with Anna French & the Maybach 57 Zeppelin

Interior Designer Spotlight: Anna French

Interior Designer Spotlight: Anna French

One of my favorite pattern makers for fabric and wallpapers is Anna French. She is originally from London but in the 1970s moved with her husband to Scotland. They lived in the top floor of a Victorian lace mill and that is when she decided to start making lace and the business began. Currently Anna French's lace, wallpapers, and fabrics are sold worldwide.

Her patterns have a very traditional feel but combine cutting edge trends to give you a very unique style that is perfect for almost any space. But enough of my rambling, here are some examples of her work (and yes, that is a metallic background on the patterns!):


Here are some samples of her gorgeous lace patterns:

Road Trip: the 2010 Maybach 57 Zeppelin

To put it as Top Gear(BBC) does, the Maybach Zeppelin is dictator-chic. This luxury touring car is yet again proof of why Mercedes really is the best at doing luxury. The 57 has a 'extended cab' creating room for your legs and luxury features such silver wine flutes, tv screens, custom wood work, and don't forget about the optional fragrance (scent) upgrade.  Everything about this car screams luxury, but don't think for one second this car doesn't haul....well it hauls - especially for such a large car.

If you pop the hood and check it out you will find a 6.0 liter Twin-turbocharged AMG-sourced V12. It has 640 hp, goes 0-100 is 4.9 seconds, and has a top speed of 177 mph.

Delicious. This lovely dictator-chic car can be yours for a mere base price of 406,000 euros or about $582,998 US dollars.
