A Home in Paris - Interiors, Inspiration
|Series:||Flammarion a Home|
The notion of Parisian charm is ubiquitous, and the magic of the city's interior design is the gold standard. The quintessential Parisian home typically characterized as a top floor apartment in a Haussmannian building is inimitably chic with the most tasteful of details. And yet Guillaume de Laubier takes us behind closed doors inside the homes of the most respected designers and artists in the city, to discover the rich diversity of Parisian style. These interiors are rife with inspiration: from the radically kitsch design philosophy of Pierre & Gilles, to the powder-hued romanticism chez Vanessa Bruno, from the retro haven of Jean-Bernard Hebey's design temple, to Pierre Yovanovitch's contemporary chic apartment, and from Jacques Garcia's subtly reworked Empire interior, to Jacques Granges harmonious blend of period pieces in Colette's former apartment overlooking the Palais-Royal gardens. This book draws back the curtain on the world of Parisian interiors, and Guillaume de Laubier's photographs capture sleek Scandinavian lines, traditionalist opulence, modernist curves, and exotic accents, documenting each unique interior aesthetic with flair.
