After living in the heart of Paris for several years, designer David Jimenez spent 2 years searching for a country home for weekend retreats. He ended finding a place so beautiful it brings tears to my eyes. It is an expansive 8-room private apartment in a centuries-old manor house on the grounds of a 16th century château near the village of Saintines, on hour north of Paris. It is decorated in classical David style – filled with layer upon layer of the most beautiful antiques and textiles and lighting. (Photos via Veranda, by Xavier Bejot)
He recently launched a book, Parisian by Design, published by Rizzoli who kindly sent me a copy and this is a MUST HAVE book. Featuring several of his design projects and sooo much more, I devoured it in an afternoon and was quite smitten with it. There is a photo of the castle and its moat that alone is worth every cent this book is being offered for. (Find it on Amazon here)
What a treat for a Tuesday! Lovely, interesting place. Thanks for sharing
Thank you Kim for finding yet another bookmark
Stunning! Love his style and antiques! Wonder if he would like to work in Alabama!
Adore everything. Give me stuff, stuff, and more stuff. Could be lost for days in there studying all the details.
