sometimes an email falls into my inbox that makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world. this weekend, that was an email from french designer emma cassi. not only is emma incredibly talented and a phenomenal artist- she happens to live in what has now become my new dream home. based in london, emma works as both as jewelry designer and interior stylist; her skills as an interior stylist are wonderfully apparent from even a brief viewing of her home photos, but when i dove into them a bit more deeply i was blown away by the subtle details around the house: artfully composed vignettes, small groupings of objects and toys and a wonderful ability to add color in just the right place. normally we share two sneak peeks on monday but i had a hard time editing emma’s photos past a few dozen so i decided to focus entirely on her home today. i’m going to go unpack and settle into my temporary los angeles home at the elan hotel and get ready for tomorrow’s meetup. until then, i hope you’ll enjoy emma’s home as much as i did (how cute is her son anton in that last photo?). as always, you can click here for full sized and extra images of emma’s beautiful home. thank you again to emma for sharing her incredible home with us!
I live in south west London, near Richmond park, on a lovely street with antique shops (Dining room and Tobias & Angel). We moved to this flat about 3 years ago- It is all white so it is great to use as studio for photos (my husband is a photographer). My little boy’s toys are everywhere and the decoration is changing all the time… Most of the furniture is from France from family or antique shops. I also have a collection of Astier de Villatte, Tsé-Tsé and vintage pottery that I use for photo shoots. I love the fact that the living room is big and bright with 3 big windows- I have just hung a curtain in the room to create my office corner. My son Anton’s bedroom is a really fun space full of vintage books and toys, collections of animals and cars (new and old) and colorful pieces of furniture. We find all the vintage things while we are on holidays (like the Japanese paintings) or back at home in Dijon, Burgundy. One last thing about our home: I fell in love with the balcony and the living room right away: they’re bright and large so I can work at home while my son is at nursery school. Currently I’m selling my jewelery at Designer’s Guild and H.P France, Goldie in Tokyo and my online boutique right here.
