Without a trace of doubt France has given the world some of the best interior designers. Very few of them however are architects. I have found in my life that architects are often better served paired up with a designer. Jean Louis Deniot is a one-man band who produces Mozart symphonies with Wagnerian sound sized talent. I have his book and occasionally pour over it to admire his finely tuned finishes and zest for mix. Notice here that he mirrored the ceilings’ molding in his custom carpet. Candy pop shades bring youth to the seriousness of this rooms’ bones. Symmetry is offset by one chair alone and patterns are echoed in the shapes and lines of the furniture. His grace is making rigorous research and execution look effortless. As a child brought up in Paris I am also a big advocate for a mirror over a mantle and a chandelier in a Living Room. In the gilded age of over stimulation I would like to champion taking out television screens from family rooms. Bring back conversation and observation, challenge your child, feed your mind.
