sneak peek: sandrine place

by

when you walk down the streets of paris you see a sea of black, grey, navy, brown and maybe a dash of red.  street fashion tends to stick to a basic and classic color scheme.  hence, it’s exactly for this reason that i absolutely fell in love with the home of wonderfully creative french stylist, sandrine place. she’s not only not afraid of color, she knows how to have fun with it. i first came across her distinctive styling for anne hubert of la cerise sur le gateau, where she regularly collaborates with – equally as awesome – photographer coco amardeil (who shot the images for today’s peek!). for those of you in europe, you likely have seen sandrine’s styling work which regularly appears in marie claire maison or in the beautiful creative book series editions paumes.  enjoy the rest of the “sneak peek” below, and don’t miss more of coco’s beautiful images of sandrine’s home right here. {thanks sandrine and coco!} -anne

[above: A Colorful entrance! I love this entrance because there’s a mix of books, pictures children’s drawing…it’s an everyday place because we take of four shoes, sit on the bench when we come back from work, school, etc. it’s a very nice place to be, because it’s a big passage … The yellow color was a real necessity because it’s like sunshine when you come in the house! ]

The fireplace, is where we are as soon as the cold arrives. It’s a wonderful place where we are all together. On Sundays we may sit all day long on the eames chair looking at the fire! the fire place is the central place of the house!

I love that long bench on each side like so we can sit near the fire, and it looks like we are in the country.

The entire space is open in the house but when you are in the kitchen there is the main block where every things happens! We cook, we do the home work, we draw , chat with friends.  It’s very convivial. The table is from design by O .  I need pieces of very flashy colour in the house to rythme the space. I need to live with color even if all the walls are grey, and like that so I can add all the colour I want. The chairs and the lamp are vintage, I did the lampshade and the black furniture is old  furniture for desk.

The every day table place! I love the mix of flowers. This “table cloth” is an old one that used to be a curtain! I bought it in Sweden and i use it all the time. It’s very positive to have it on the table. The plates are all found in flea market but they all have flowers! And that’s me the back with my yellow shoes! I always need to have colors on me.
