LEFOR-OPENO finally in my walls.


I was introduced to these amazing illustrators from the 50’s and 60’s

by my husband a while a go .

Marie-Claire Lefort and Marie-Francine Oppeneau

created incredible Posters, cards and other things

under the name of Lefor-Openo

I fell crazy in love as soon as I saw their great illustrations.

We looked everywhere for their commercial posters but they were so out of our budget.

Luckily I found a couple of reproductions in Tokyo few years ago, I wish I had bought more 🙁

I even got on a argument with my friend because we both wanted

the same posters.


Finally I framed them like 7 years later…..

We currently place this Noel illustration in our mantel

this added a final touch to our Christmas decor.


This other one we have in our kitchen by our breakfast nook.

Bela’s favorite since She loooves bread!

We also own 2 small original lithographs we got from Paris.

These are some more images for you to enjoy!

This one is Brigitte Bardot.
