Editor's Note: Today I am wearing dress shorts by Banana Republic, blouse by Ann Taylor, and shoes by Valentino.
Happy Tuesday everyone! It is the work horse day of the week--especially for me this week with the holiday weekend fast approaching. In my industry--every holiday starts the Friday before. It slightly drives me crazy because it squeezes my week down. I am not a huge holiday or vacation person. I truly am happiest when I am doing what I love so much--design. But I will go to the pool this weekend and I have a fabulous party on Friday night. Next Tuesday I will be raring to go after the 4 day weekend! Today I am featuring an incredible apartment on the Left Bank of Paris. Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world. I just cannot get enough of every aspect of the city. This apartment designed by Italian firm Studio Peregalli is sure to make you happy. Have a great day!
Oh my! What a glorious living room. This room--which is so large for Parisian standards--would be beautiful empty! The plaster work going around the room is a work of art in itself. Then comes the custom upholstery + antiques. If I was to define my personal style--please give me this room all day long and 5 times on Sunday! Every piece, fabric, detail is perfection.
Oh my--what a tiny but sumptuous dining room. Love the walls! Antique mirror with a hand-painted floral. Wow!! The roulette table was found at Fremontier. The antiques in the house were sourced from all over Paris.
What a beautiful end typed Parisian entry hall complete with gorgeous armories. I still love armories to be used in Entry Halls and other rooms for storage. The hand painted wallpaper and faux marble wainscoting are stunning!
What a purely lovely kitchen to wake up to in the morning! The tile used for the backsplash is 18th century Portuguese. The marble mantle is original to the house. I love the 17th century chairs slip covered. I actually love every detail in this room.
A guest room was converted into this darling library. I love how much furniture is in this small space--so cozy!
What a cheesy room with the fabricated walls and the draperies for the closet. How elegant is this?! And that ladder!!
This guest room features hand-painted fabric to go with 19th century Genoese mezzaro fabric. What lucky guests!
The floors in this master bath! And the 19th century lanterns that is copied by so many lighting dealers now. Beautiful. How special is using the 1760 rosewood-and-bronze-table for a dressing table. Love it!
A Master suite fit for a princess! The green and coral is so beautifully paired. The rug is based on a Madeleine Castaing drawing. How special is that?! Love, Love, love the soft green woodwork. Gorgeous!
