Pure Style













The French have it in spades don't they. When I say "it", I mean "It".

This integral sense of style that rarely puts a foot wrong. From modern to traditional, and all the parts in between, they put up the most amazing interpretations.

This amazing fit out of the Veuve Clicquot hotel in Reims blew my mind. The hall of mirrors (and we know the French do that well don't we), the graduated stair runner and the jaw dropping crystal. But by far my favourite detail is the black mosaics in the bathroom simply, but so perfectly, teamed with  classic gold fittings. Pure style.

COME ON! There is So much I love here. It feels like the home of a very refined artist. Think I'm going to have to post about the stairs, with that ombre runner that bleeds into the wall...so fantastical...
