Art Nouveau Inspiration

Lately I have been dreaming in Art Nouveau, I find all the curves and asymmetry so interesting to look at.  I would love to be able to go back and visit Bing's Pavillion at the  Paris exhibition of 1900, or be a guest at Victor Horta's home.  I guess I will just have to settle for looking at beautiful pictures and hope to get back to Paris and Brussels soon!
