A while ago I started to feature a small series on here called A La Maison with pictures of people’s spaces. The first space features besides my own was O + J. Part of the reason I did this is that I love discovering people’s homes (in a non-creepy way). I feel like what someone surrounds themselves with at home can say so much about a person. It’s intriguing to see what people you adore choose to surround themselves with in their own little space.
Valérie is a French photographer, and her nest is the coolest I’ve seen in this city.
Valérie’s home up in Paris’s 19th district is refreshingly cozy. It’s hidden away in an interior courtyard, an escape from the Parisian streets.
As you walk in, a mint green SMEG fridge radiates with the vintage knick-knacks, perfectly toned enamel kitchenware and floral motifs. Her stunning wooden kitchen table is tucked between vintage school chairs (one of my dream déco choices). The large industrial windows that open to a small terrace out front are lined with books, framed photographs and succulents. Don’t even get me started on her bathtub.
The living space has a wall of bricks, which I just drool over every time I walk in. It’s simple, so beautiful and seems effortless. I could feel stepping in the front door that someone creative dwelled here.
Interiors can be so inspiring. Valérie’s will always be in my memory as the perfect cozy space with the perfect color tones and objects placed effortlessly. Something as simple as stacked magazines at Valérie’s are a statement in decoration.
