A home in Paris : interiors inspiration by Guillaume de Laubier( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in French and English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
"The notion of Parisian charm is ubiquitous, and the magic of the city's interior design is the gold standard. Guillaume de Laubier takes us behind closed doors, inside the homes of the most respected designers and artists in the city, to discover the rich diversity of Parisian style. These interiors are rife with inspiration : from the radically kitsch design philosophy of Pierre & Gilles, to the powder-hued romanticism chez Vanessa Bruno, from the retro haven of Jean-Bernard Hebey's temple to industrial design, to Pierre Yovanovitch's contemporary chic apartment or Jacques Garcia's subtly reworked Empire interior. This book draws back the curtain on the world of Parisian interiors, and Guillaume de Laubier's photographs capture sleek Scandinavian lines, traditionalist opulence, modernist curves, and exotic accents, documenting each unique interior aesthetic with flair."--
