Well Noted.jpgA Home in Paris: Interiors + Inspiration (Flammarion, $35), a new book by French journalist and art historian Catherine Synave with photography by Guillaume de Laubier, offers readers a peek inside 34 Parisian dwellings—ranging from classic (think gilded moldings and iron-framed doors) to contemporary (former garages or warehouses converted for residential use). This broad spectrum of interiors draws inspiration from both the classic French decorative tradition and the freshest Parisian home designs. Modern interiors incorporate mod Tulip chairs, geometric Calder-esque mobiles, and vibrant-hued polycarbonate dining sets. A passion for collecting comes to the fore through taxidermy, tribal arts, Slavic textile motifs, 1950s’ domestic design pieces, or expertly grouped photographs. Guillaume de Laubier leads us into the private realm of the Parisian design elite, chez Jacques Garcia, Vanessa Bruno, Jacques Grange, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Pierre et Gilles, or the late fashion muse Loulou de la Falaise. His photographs capture sleek Scandinavian lines, traditionalist opulence, modernist curves, and exotic accents, documenting each unique interior with flair.
