“New Paris interiors” book by Taschen due to be released in April 2008
Some of the city’s most interesting personalities have opened their doors for this breathtaking collection of resplendent homes—a true snapshot of Paris in the early 21st century
Living the life in the capital of class
The city of light is a place of persistent beauty, from the Tuileries gardens to the banks of the Seine to the heights of Montmartre. But the restrained palette of beige and stone painted by the city’s noble architecture may leave one wondering if Parisians are color-impaired. Fear not—for this new volume of Paris Interiors, Angelika Taschen has brought together a selection of apartments so astonishing, so surprising, and so inspiring that you very well might not know what hit you. Think texture, think dynamic space, think eclectic, think vivid colors—these interiors are packed floor to ceiling with new ideas, unexpected pleasures, and prime examples of 21st century living. Architect India Mahdavi, French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, auctioneer Simon de Pury, shoemaker Christian Louboutin, gallerists Philippe Jousse and Didier and Cleménce Krzentowski, fashion designer Rick Owens, and many more of the city’s most interesting personalities have opened their doors for this breathtaking collection of resplendent Parisian homes.
