This seems to me to be an odd time for a one-hour special on Paris Interiors, but HGTV's program guide lists Homes of Paris as airing Monday, April 16 at 12 p.m. Mississippi-born textile connoisseur Lisa Fine's sumptuous 7th-arrondissement flat is supposed to be featured during the special, so I care about getting the date right. As the images above show, Fine is inspired by India's embroidery, silks, and lush colors -- pink with orange, a few hits of pistachio-green -- as well as Turkish and Moroccan styles.

That is a strange time! I would like to see her apartment though. Do you know what other homes will be featured?

Hey Courtney: The guest room was her closet! I loved it. My own closet is decked out similarly -- though not as luxuriously.

Thanks again for the lovely blog,
Terry
