Compiled with expertise and care by French interior designer Caroline Sarkozy
With breathtaking photos by respected architecture and interior design photographer Jean-François Jaussaud and informative descriptions by renowned French journalist Caroline Clavier
Home of Chanel to LVMH, Paris extends its style influence well beyond Fashion Week. By the time the renowned furniture trade show Maison et Objet opens its doors, the French fashion capital reveals itself to be a barometer of taste and aesthetics and a magnet for the who’s who of the interior design world. Caroline Sarkozy is one of the insiders who knows precisely how to lend apartments, houses, and lofts that “je ne sais quoi” factor. Sarkozy, who lives and works in Paris, has tremendous expertise and a unique, elegant style that is perfectly at home in luxurious interiors around the world. She grew up in the USA, the Middle East, and Africa, and together with French photographer Jean-François Jaussaud, she whisks us into the personal living spaces of the most beautiful arrondissements of Paris in the second edition of Living in Style Paris. From timeless, understated interiors and ornate, yet refined Art Deco apartments to spectacular dream oases at the city’s edge: captured in opulent pictures and carefully curated, this book provides an intimate look at the work of design greats such as Muriel Brandolini, Juan Montoya, Joseph Dirand, Christian Astuguevieille, Luis Laplace, Olivier Dwek and Chahan Minassian, Studio KO, and the exclusive hideaways in the metropolis on the Seine that are normally hidden away from prying eyes.
> As an interior designer, Caroline Sarkozy travels all around the world. She decorates the very private interiors of international clients to which she brings luxury, comfort and French elegance. Sarkozy, through her eclectic and never-ending curiosity, creates for her clients unique collections of objects and furniture. From a nomadic childhood, in the footsteps of a diplomatic stepfather, Caroline has acquired an acute taste for travel. She succeeds in combining charm and thoroughness, giving authenticity and personality to the homes she decorates. She dares to mix styles, textures and colors. With her degree from the Parsons School of Design in New York City, her collaboration with Andrée Putman has given her a recognition. Creating her own studio in 1998, CS Décoration in Paris, Sarkozy handles international projects, mixing her original creations with detailed and elegant interior design schemes.
