Stylist Nathalie Garcons's apartment in Paris















Famous stylist Nathalie Garcons apartment in Paris leaves nobody indifferent. Each detail in the interior has its own history. The decor can not but fascinates one with its courageous mixture of styles which, according to the designer, reminds her of the amazing city of Cannes and helps her fight prosiness. It is the stone staircase leading to the mezzanine that calls the tune in the interior, the narrow steps sending us to the architecture of the 17th century. The stained-glass windows were manufactured in 1925. The interior palette attracts one with rich colours chocolate, red and khaki. The black-toned parquet flooring is laid out with thick orange carpets. The huge velveteen sofa is decorated with various textiles some of them being handweaved on the basis of drawings which Nathalie has found in the archives of some textile works. Picked up on a flea market, the chairs of the 1930s are especially prominent among Nathalies other finds. The sideboard standing nearby has been repainted into the colour of red; the original Thai table has been cut out of the giant root of a tree. The headboard is adorned with a large patchwork leather panel. In the evening the dwelling lit by wavering candles resembles an isle of the past safe from the stream of time.
