I've long admired designer L'Wren Scott for many different reasons - her impeccable taste, her classically chic personal style (with a small dose of rock n'roll), her flowing & shiny black tresses and of course her dresses. Did I mention her dresses? Classic silhouettes with architectural details and a touch of sexiness - her clothing radiates femininity and class. So I couldn't have been happier when I delved into this month's U.S. Vogue and discovered a feature on her home in France.
A former model (she's a lithe 6'3"), this celebrity stylist /creative director/costume designer (she did the costume design for Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut among other films) turned designer owns several homes including a Paris apartment on the left bank, which she shares with her longtime boyfriend, Mick Jagger. As someone with flawless taste and wild creativity, she eschewed the idea of using a decorator and did everything herself. The result: a glamorous and chic apartment with the right dose of color and eclectic accouterments that is the perfect reflection of Scott and her classic with a twist aesthetic. There are so many things to love about this pied-a-terre, but I'll let you judge for yourself. Enjoy!
|I love the scale and combination of the vintage light with the pink velvet bench and small Warhol painting.|
|My favorite part of her living room is probably the daybed. I've always dreamed about having one in my bedroom to relax and read on.|
|Scott's collection of antique mirrors is perfectly placed with a child's painting and collection of candlesticks.|
|The molding in this room and throughout the apartment adds so much to the overall aesthetic and gives it a sense of history and old world flair.|
|The piece above the desk is a Warhol portrait of Mick Jagger.|
|This hallway lined with gold & gilded mirrors is stunning. And the chevron pattern on the floors - wow!|
|A great example of how a vintage Suzani coverlet can look casual, but chic at the same time.|
|I love seeing the collections of objects different people have in their homes. Not sure exactly what these are (anyone know?), but I love the way they look grouped together.|
|The fact this room has what looks to be a Damien Hirst piece only feet away from an antique sculpture is brilliant. Mixing new with old, contemporary with vintage or antique is always the way I love to see homes decorated.|
