Carol Neily’s Lyon Hideaway

by Grace Bonney

last month, carol of basic french (a fantastic shop for all things french) let us take a sneak peek into her recently renovated french country home. after looking through her incredible photos, i think we all wanted to pack up and move in with carol and her lovely daughters. but now i’m ready to pack a second bag because carol was gracious enough to share even more home photos- this time of her french city home. carol’s french city apartment is located in lyon, in a neighborhood full of chic stores, galleries, antique shops, upholsterers, and world-class artisans. aside from living my dream life, carol live in a home full of incredible antiques and contemporary pieces from groups like objet de curiosite and local lyon shops. i instantly fell in love with the beautiful coral prints, created by carol’s friend, isabelle grange. several of the pieces in carol’s home can be found at basic french if you’re looking to recreate the look and feel of carol’s home, so feel free to check out the shop here or shoot carol a line here (just click “contact”). in the meantime, i hope you’ll enjoy carol’s beautiful french apartment as much as i did. [thanks, again to carol for sharing her second home with us. all photos were taken by carol and photographer ellen silverman] as always, you can click here for full-sized, an additional, photos of carol’s beautiful french apartment.
