INTERIOR DESIGN IN PARIS

The late French interior designer Henri Samuel helped American financier John Gutfreund and wife Susan design their Parisian pied-a-terre.  Architect Alain Ratnaud renovated the five floor townhouse, raising the ceilings and moving walls.  ENJOY!








To see more images and to read the history behind this home pick up your copy of the Jan/Feb 2011 issue of Veranda magazine.

Now for a little Christmas...




SO FAR THIS WEEK
See you soon,
Teresa

Oh my goodness, I am dying! This house is so beautiful. I'm especially in love with those windows in the very first image. It's my dream to have a home with windows like that one day!

Happy Holidays.

Oh - that Paris apartment is amazing. A bit more than a "foot on the ground"! The bedroom is the super deluxe version of a bedroom I'm currently designing for a 5 year old. Same style bed with draping, pink color palette. Oo la la!

I am so behind on my magazines. My new Veranda is still sitting on my coffee table unopened. I need more time in the day!!! The pied-a-tere is stunning as are the Christmas images. You never disappoint Teresa!

THAT is some pied-a-terre...I'd be happy with a studio apartment to rest my feet in Paris! By the way, my wrapping "station" is all over my dining room and we have company coming for dinner (hence, why I WISH I was more organized)!
