So, a scheme for the main room was just coming together in my mind when I finally got round to reading this month’s Elle Deco and saw the most gorgeous Parisian apartment featured on the cover and inside.
It didn’t surprise me in the slightest that such a chic, sexy, elegant apartment should belong to Vanessa Bruno, one of my very most favourite designers (oh, if only I were thinner and richer) who is known for her chic, sexy, elegant clothes.
I love everything about this space – the eclectic mix of modern and formal furniture, the mid-century modern touches, the inspired use of pastel highlights (anyone else really liking that mix of pale lavender, celery green and dusky pink?), the way she arranges her shelves, the big glass pot of unused candles, even the red beady thingy on the wall. And it’s all in the Marais – lucky, lucky, lucky woman.
So now I’m humming and haaing again. This too shall be added to the inspiration file and I shall see what percolates through.
