Interior designer David Jimenez has lived and worked in Paris for years, where he s celebrated for his distinctive and sophisticated interiors. With a classic and modern style, Jimenez creates the type of chic French-influenced interiors that so many of us aspire to. And in these pages he imparts ideas and inspiration for how we can design our own space with French flair. Organised by project, the book features Jimenez s interiors in France (including his own incredible pied-a-terre on Ile Saint-Louis as well as his new fixer-upper chateau north of Paris) as well as the United States. From grand nineteenth-century Parisian apartments to more contemporary spaces in New York and San Francisco, Jimenez shows us how to create elegant and romantic spaces by layering in art and books, textures and colours, along with distinctive antiques and our own collections. The last part of the book contains an elegant how-to section sharing Jimenez s secrets and tips for decorating in the French style, including: Essential French Colors, Modern French style, and How To Hang Art along with tips for designing a small apartment, creating chic arrangements, and finding the best antiques and materials. Also included is a source section of Jimenez s favourite Paris and New York flea markets, antique dealers, and art galleries. With stunning photography and inspiring texts, Decorate as the Parisians Do is a dream for style Francophiles, or anyone looking to artfully decorate their home, wherever they may live.
