Why, hello! I hope you had a fabulous weekend?! Mine was so relaxing: the thing with having an injury (or torn calf muscle to be precise) means you can totally get away with putting your feet up and making your way through a pile of magazines, guilt-free – heaven! Today, I exchanged the analogue for online portfolios – specifically that of architect JeanCharlesThomas – and what a find it turned out to be! This fine specimen of an apartment in Paris was designed to ‘juxtapose lush materiality with sleek, edited lines’ as well as ‘highlight both masculine and feminine silhouettes with high contrast, architectural detail, an eye for improvised sophistication and effortless luxury.’ I think it’d be rude not to take a tour, don’t you?!
So elegant! And although, I’d usually plump for a more feminine touch, I almost want to reach in and touch the cool marble and sink into the sumptuous velvet (I love the decadence of using velvet in the dining area – and the cool colour combination!).
Is there anything that stands out to you?
