This was shot for Vogue sometime ago, think it was back in 2012 by the photographer Gili Oberto. For those of you who do not know who Lauren Santo Domingo is, shame on you, just kidding – she’s a contributing editor at Vogue and the founder of online retailer Moda Operandi, so as far as tastefulness goes, safe to say she has a good pedigree. It does not take a great leap of faith to understand why then her home in Paris gets a spread in Vogue.
So one of the main reasons why we decided to post these photos, yes, the walls are beautiful, et cetera, but it’s those damn floors we really love. As the old saying goes, wood floors like that, they just don’t make them like they used to.
The monochromatic colors of the walls and decor are easy going on the eye, which has something to do with the patterns of the darker shades, breaks up what could or might be unjustly harsh.
Love the little console hall table, designed to look like a Parisian townhouse standing on its own. Lovely home.
