I didn’t know what to expect before seeing inside Clare Waight Keller’s Paris apartment. Her design style has evolved a long way since I first came across her work for British brand, Pringle, in 2010. Back then it was fairly minimal with innovative knitwear patterns in muted shades. Now as creative director of Chloé, she brings her own take on the feminine and bohemian style Chloé have become so well known for. The label is leading the pack with its 70s influenced collections, under her direction.
Her home in Paris reflects her love of geometric prints; with rugs, throws, parquet flooring, and even a patterned inlaid chest of drawers. The muted tones throughout create a calming backdrop to display her eclectic mix of vases, sculptures, books and prints. There’s something about the styling that brings to mind Picasso in his African Period, the tones, the masks. Everything appears as though it’s been hand-picked over time, from auctions, brocantes and travels around the world. It seems to come together in a way as only a designer knows how. The dining area is definitely my favourite space, it’s a little less busy and with all that light feels really fresh.
Did anyone else spot the Chloé bag in the bedroom?
