Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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.

Simultaneously published in French as Sous les toits de Paris, Flammarion, S.A. Paris, 2018.

The book jacket unfolds into a mood board poster to inspire readers to infuse their homes with Parisian chic and elegance.
