I rarely buy magazines anymore, I just read them online, but I’m glad I picked up the latest issue of Vogue while I was traveling last week. Featured inside is the treasure-filled French country house of John Galliano and Alexis Roche photographed by François Halard. He worked on the interiors with Daniel Slowik, formerly at […]

British fashion designer Peter Copping mentioned to me a few months back that he and his French husband Rambert Rigaud were creating a home line named after their beloved 15th-century manor house in Normandy. La Carlière has just been featured in the Financial Times How to Spend It and it’s just as good as I suspected. The […]

One good thing to come out of quarantine is that we get to see more photos of people’s home since they have nothing else to Instagram. One of my longtime favorite accounts @lacarliere highlights the 15th & 17th century Normandy manor house belonging to @petercopping  @rambertfleurs and their two pretty Siamese cats. I had a […]

Tory Burch in Normandy

02 . 04 . 20

Make sure you pick up the March 2020 issue of The World of Interiors to see the chic Normandy home of Tory Burch. The manor actually belonged to her new French husband Pierre-Yves Roussel but left a lot to be desired so Tory turned to Robert Kime to help pull it together. I was a […]

I was sad when it was announced that Peter Copping would no longer be designing for Oscar de la Renta. It would be no longer running into him in New York. But I was also happy because I knew it meant that he and his partner Rambert Rigaud could return to their lives in France […]

Chic Normandy Retreat

08 . 05 . 15

While Peter Copping and his husband Rambert Rigaud sold their Paris apartment when Peter was appointed the artistic director of Oscar de la Renta in New York, they weren’t going to give up their Normandy retreat. You can see why from the new photos they’ve posted on Instagram. You may remember that I posted some photos from […]

Peter’s New Perch

05 . 21 . 15

The May 2015 issue of Vogue has a lovely feature on fashion designer Peter Copping who took over the helm at Oscar de la Renta last year. Copping and his partner Rambert Rigaud, an amazing florist, and their two cats have landed in the West Village after moving from Paris. They both have beautiful Instagram accounts […]

A French Folie

07 . 15 . 14

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Sally Perrin of Perrin Paris in her beautiful apartment designed by French interior designer Chahan Minassian. While I was there, she and her daughter Chloe told me about the family’s former house in Normandy. They loved it but decided to sell because they rarely used it after they moved […]

Thanks to a little tweet from Luxuo, I was alerted to the fact that French actress and style icon Catherine Deneuve is selling her house in Normandy, Chateau de Primard.  The 18th-century stunner an hour from Paris will set you back €3.9 Million ($5.5 Million) which seems like a bargain considering that it’s move in ready and […]

A French Feast

02 . 20 . 14

There is nothing I love more than finding a photo that leads you down the rabbit hole of discovery.  I came across an image of a French room that turned out to be from a Vogue Living Australia feature on French entertaining tips from cook and author Jane Webster.  Jane is Australian and visited France […]

While I was leafing through Dressing the Home this week, another home stopped me in my tracks.  It belonged to French fashion designer Marcel Marongiu.  The designer studied in Sweden and also has a Swedish mother which accounts for his the slightly Gustavian look to his Paris apartment and Normandy farmhouse. Both are filled with pieces […]
