Lanvin Lives On

Did you know that fashion designer Jeanne Lanvin’s grandson is an interior designer in Moscow?  Neither did I until yesterday.  I love when creativity runs in a family.  I also love that Jean-Yves Lanvin’s apartment isn’t as over the top as I’ve come to expect from Russian design but I guess that’s because he’s French.  You can see more of it as well as an interview here.  He also has a website which is unfortunately all in Russian but you can still look at the photos! Enjoy!

    What a great find! I adore that red daybed! It makes such a strong statement in that room.

    I’ll take a look at the site.

    By the way, take a look at my post today. It’s about Natalie Portman’s house! I wonder what you’d think about the house! It’s not what you’d expect for her.

    Have a great Tuesday! 🙂

    Fabulous find, Heather. This is why we love you! My favorite thing in my closet is a vintage couture Lanvin fur coat, found @ an antiques maket on Paris. The lable reads “JEANNE LANVIN” and has the customer’s account number penciled on the back. I can’t believe I’m so lucky to have it! The history of the house and Jeanne Lanvin makes it one of my favorite surviving houses…so lovely to see her legacy here! XO Jeanne

    Hi, I read Russian, and unfortunately they are saying much beyond selling French style furniture in Moscow. So you’re not missing much.

    Thanks for an amazing post 🙂 His apartment is so NOT typically Russian. It makes me very very happy.

    Love this Heather, thanks for sharing!

    Funny, I just saw some of that lipstick blot art at Macy’s yesterday and was determined to try my hand at making one myself one of these days. It’s fascinating how universal art is.
    Cheers and best wishes for a wonderful and fulfilling 2011.

    I love the paint color that was chosen for the walls and moldings. White-on-white, done well, is so chic and far from boring. Thank you for the inspiration. Off to find the perfect shades of white (any tips?)…

    I Love, Love, Love the two “personalities” occupying the same room space. The designer has created a more formal and classical converasation space with the fireplace as the focal point. I am loving the bold striped chairs and the colors. The shapes of the furniture are more fluid and organic in nature, more feminine. In contrast, the more casual and contemporary space has as its focal point the flat screen T.V and the furniture definately feels more masculine. The pallette is more subdued and relaxed. Great ideas!!
