If you are looking for inspiration look inside an ultra-chic Paris home and get inspired for your next renovation.
Mathilde Favier-Meyer, Christian Dior’s bubbly global VIP director has always received decorating advice from some, particularly esteemed sources, but when she come across with a stunning duplex in the French capital’s ultratony 16th arrondissement, she was determined to forgo professional help.
“I didn’t care whether there were errors of taste—I just wanted it to reflect who I am,” she explains. That meant interiors that were less formal and more functional for her and her teenage children, Héloïse and Carlo Agostinelli. “Since my youth, I’ve been accustomed to living in places that had immense charm but were rather heavy,” the executive continues. “This apartment is a reaction against all that. For example, I no longer host big dinners as in the past. Now I prefer to entertain small groups of friends in the kitchen.”
