She is a fashion legend, a model, face of Chanel, a muse who inspired Karl for years, an owner of her own fashion label and a woman who breathed second (and very successful) life into Roger Vivier shoe company. Yes, she is Ines de la Fressange.

And this is her apartment. Unique and chic just like the woman who lives there.  Not a sign of a typical Parisian grey. Instead we are greeted with a delightful and very feminine peony colours, a mix of modern and classic, Perspex and Victorian, art and kitsch and, of course, candles and a bunch of fresh flowers.

This is what I would definitely call “la vie en rose”. In every meaning of it..

  1. Color does kick inspiration on its sweet way. Paris can be so many tints all in one. From the hectically turquoise busy traffic circle to the ever so smoothly pink, behind the Eiffel Tower sunset.

    This city makes my heart sing... on and on. Ideas bounce. Canvas is filled, stroke by stroke.

  2. At a first glance this clash of colours can sound a little bit too baroque BUT I must say that it finally exudes a (so pretty) kind of "fruity / girly harmony" . . .
    ps: I warmly wish you a nice week end too Dear !!!

    à Bientôt, Antoine

  4. You've said it so well: la vie en rose! I'd like to buy her book, Parisian chic: a style guide by Ines de la Fressange, but for now it's just for pre-orders available.
