Haute couture The cobbled streets of Saint-Germain-des-Prés were once home to Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir. But these days it’s more about fashion than philosophy. No wonder, then, that your textile-savvy host chose to make this district her home. The large, high-ceilinged rooms house brightly coloured furnishings, and the dining is a melange of vintage and modern pieces, with glass-panelled doors leading into the sitting room. Here you can curl up by the fireplace with a tome on interiors, or gaze beyond the windows onto the scenery of the park below. The sartorialist A career in the textile industry – and the plentiful travel that comes with it – have been invaluable inspirations for your host’s eclectic decor. When at home, she likes to entertain in her dining room or head out to one of the many arthouse cinemas in the neighbourhood. Made to measure Past this Haussmannian home’s outer-layer is an antique toy rocking horse, modern art, ornate fireplaces and bright stitches of colour – from the cherry-red desk, and the orange cabinet. The monochromatic kitchen is well-proportioned – well-suited for entertaining – but if cooking isn’t your bag, pick up à la mode French cuisine from famous La Grande Epicerie de Paris, just down the road. But no matter where you seek satiation, the calming master bedroom is sure to appeal when it’s time to retire.
