everyone loved the post i did of francois and betty catroux’s provence farm house/ see here, i thought i’d share some images of their paris apartment’s then and now.
obviously the provence farm house and these apartment’s are nothing alike, however, they are both neutral, rich with textures and detail, i can see many similarities that lie deep beneath, you can see the same hand and the same sensibility. the only difference is one is in the country- provence, these are in the city- paris.
architectural digest photographed francois’s paris apartment back in the 60’s and 70’s- i love the rich neutral furnishings, the clean modern occasional pieces, the asian influence, and of course all the greenery, the provence has the amazing green gardens, this apartment has all the green inside (love the plants in baskets- chic).
then we have francois and betty’s paris apartment now, photographed by the wsj, actually, kinda more of the same, however updated, more current, a bit more modern.
the catroux’s love neutrals, whether in the country or in the city, whether then or now- enjoy!
