In honor of 2Modern’s recent trip to Paris, the hip publishing house Thames & Hudson has graciously offered up the recent title “New Paris Style” as a prize in this contest giveaway! It’s an absolutely intoxicating blend of twenty-seven properties (photographed exclusively for this book) of the homes of creative, talented Parisian musicians, fashion designers, interior designers, filmmakers, artists and more.
Along with getting a taste of these individual worlds, you also get a sense of the varied and eclectic city, because these homes are spread across Paris’ arrondissements like the Left Bank, the Marais and Belleville and 13th. I flipped through it myself — it’s honestly soooo full of inspiring, eclectic spaces with a modern style, all with a hint (or more) of glamour. LOTS of ideas in this book for borrowing for your own space.
Homes include those of creative director Jean-Christophe Aumas, interior designers Pierre Yovanovitch and Florence Baudoux, fashion designer Corrado de Biase, jewelry designer Martha Bedoya, antiques dealer Florence Lopez, product designers Ora-Ïto and Victoria Wilmotte, illustrator Jean-Philippe Delhomme and actor and singer Marc Lavoine. It was written by the talented French writer Danielle Miller and shot by famed photographer Richard Powers.
There are THREE copies being awarded to winners of this contest! What you do: If you’ve been to Paris — tell us your favorite spot to enjoy Paris design and style.
