Archive: Concentrated Style





Textile designer Dominique Kieffer's 60 square meter apartment in Paris is proof that elegant living doesn't need a lot of space. Located in a former hotel built in the 18th century, Dominique's home uses harmonious tones of browns, beiges, and deep violets to give visual continuity to the tiny space, while doubling up on the purpose of each room (such as using the entrance as a dining area) means that every inch of the apartment is used intelligently. Dominique's collection of paintings, engravings and sculpture contribute to its warm atmosphere of a 19th century artist's atelier, all enhanced with the use of her own fabric designs for the soft furnishings (sofa, bed, cushions, drapes). Inspiring and beautiful. Scanned from a late 90s edition of Marie Claire Maison.

This is far more "me" than the white interiors I so admire, but could not live with. I love all this texture, the charcoals and autumnal colours and the patina on everything.

Isn't it lovely? And I agree, Jane -- definitely very liveable. Actually, I tend to think of the all white interiors as perfect for summer homes ... what I'd do if I had a tiny cabin by the sea ...
