What is it about Paris and Parisian design that so many of us are drawn to? Perhaps it’s the magical feeling of that utterly sophisticated city – you can’t help but fall in love with it. Parisian design is as classic as it gets. Like that little black dress, it’s always in style and doesn’t become dated.
After visiting the Castle of Versailles, I was thinking about how amazing it is that centuries later it is still beautiful and continues to resonate with today’s aesthetics. And while I don’t believe everyone’s home should look like the Castle of Versailles, there are elements that we can incorporate into home design and adapt to today’s world, and to your personal sense of style. Whether it be a gilded mirror, a Louis XIV chair or a bit of brocade, these richly ornate touches can add a great deal of sophistication to any space.
