A duo of high-profile tastemakers invites readers inside fifteen homes that are infused with the blend of vintage-contemporary style that is the essence of Parisian chic.
Style icon Ines de la Fressange and globetrotting dilettante Marin Montagut share a uniquely Parisian sensibility for interiors that combine a variety of design traditions into a harmonious living space. The authors take readers inside fifteen Parisian apartments_including their own_ that demonstrate how to imbue a home with a sense of well-being through a mix of vintage and contemporary styles. Each owner is passionate about home decor_whether in a studio, loft, or duplex_and they continually evolve their interior with new treasures uncovered in flea markets, on their travels, at design fairs, or in artisanal workshops.
Natural materials_wood, wicker, bamboo, cotton, and linen_create warmth and personality. Vintage suitcases, vegetable crates, and jewel- toned pharmaceutical jars transform into charming storage containers. Embroidered cushions, terrariums, and fresh flowers enliven a room with pops of color. Collages, original art, or humble objects displayed in a series add a signature style to each residence.
With extensive photographs, watercolor illustrations, and practical advice on the indispensable objects that incarnate each maison , this exquisite volume is rich in inspiration for creating Parisian chic at home.
