Book Description

9 May 2008
The city of light is a place of persistent beauty, from the Tuileries gardens to the banks of the Seine to the heights of Montmartre. But the restrained palette of beige and stone painted by the city's noble architecture may leave one wondering if Parisians are color-impaired. Fear not - for in the second volume of "Paris Interiors", Angelika Taschen has brought together a selection of apartments so astonishing, so surprising, and so inspiring that you very well might not know what hit you. Think texture, think dynamic space, think eclectic, think vivid colors - these interiors are packed floor to ceiling with new ideas and unexpected pleasures. Designer duo Erwan & Ronan Bourellec, auctioneer Simon de Pury, shoemaker Christian Louboutin, gallerist Philippe Jousse, clothing designer Rick Owens, "French Vogue" editor Carine Roitfeld, and many more of the city's most interesting personalities have opened their doors for this breathtaking collection of resplendent Parisian homes.

I absolutely adore this book by Angelika Taschen & Ian Phillips. In the past, I bought so many interior decor books and when they arrive, they are not as good as they look and I get disappointed as I don't look at the books more than once. But I have to say this is one of the best books on the interior decoration. The best thing I like about this book is the variety. There are a great selection of taste, lifestyle and environment. The book is HUGE - it's a proper coffee table book, packed with colourful photos. The interior decor books are nothing without a good photographer. In her previous book "Paris Interiors", I thought the photographs were a bit too small. But here, the images are in new format -large, clear -making the justice to the rooms & capturing the owners' good taste, idiosyncracies, personalities and quirks. Every time I look at this book, I see something new in one of the houses described in this book. I can't help but daydream and imagine myself wandering around the rooms of the artists and writers who live in these great houses in that book. If you want to buy a copy of French interior decoration or Parisian decor book, search no more! This is the ultimate book to have on your shelf. I'd highly recommend this book and also its predecessor, "Paris Interiors".

1.0 out of 5 stars Real disappointment 19 July 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
For those familiar with the first Taschen Paris Interiors book, edited by Lisa Lovatt-Smith, this new version edited by Angelika Taschen will be a major disappointment. The first book is full of charm, colour, warmth and individuality and highly representative of Paris. This new book is harsh, colourless, placeless with no charm or wonder. I looked at it once and found nothing to interest or inspire me. It will go straight to a charity shop or book sale. This is a very strong review but the book is really not worth the relatively high price tag.

4.0 out of 5 stars How the other half lives... 20 May 2008
By T. Hickman - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm going to love poring over this book over and over again. It's impossible to look through it all at once, anyway, it's so big and the visual onslaught is overwhelming. Being a middle-class, Great Plains middle-aged person, I will never see these apartments and rooms myself, but it's fun to see how world-class artists, musicians, actors, directors, designers and financiers like to decorate their homes. Some of them, I swear, are compulsive collectors - stuff *everywhere*! Most are beautiful rooms, lending lots of ideas or at least daydreams for one's own home.

The photography is lovely; the text is in blocks of English, French, and German, so if you want to practice your French or German, this is a fun way to do it. If you're a Francophile, like me, it's entertaining and educational peering through those windows out to the Parisian sights.

My only complaint is how huge the book is; it's not a lap-book, that's for sure. It is definitely worth the money, in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than its New York companion 8 Feb 2011
By sergey - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A great book, featuring diverse and striking apartments of real (rich) Paris residents. I like it better than the New New York Interiors book, because the apartments featured here are less edgy and more cozy and livable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent showcase of Paris interiors 8 Oct 2008
By Samara Lima Menezes - Published on
This book is an excellent viewbook if you want to get a taste of contemporary Paris interiors. It has very modern, a bit more classic and very chic interiors as well. The photos are all full page and very well made, high quality. A fun book to flip through and get inspiration from!

I purchased this for my spouse who's an Architect. Great view of images and photography is one of my hobbies, so I enjoyed viewing the photos in the book
3.0 out of 5 stars Low profile interiors 30 Oct 2008
By Martini Ferruccio - Published on
I was very satisfied when I purchased New York Interiors and thought I would be very happy with this volume too.
But among all the interiors displayed there may be three of objective interest while the others seem as a vague kitsch parade of the owner's tastes.
If you are as me looking for good interior design ideas I'd say you can do without this book,while some solutions(not architectural,but of furnishing)might be funny or interesting they really don't give a good insight of what's going on in the design world as they seem more some kinds of weird "wunderkammer" than contemporary projects.
Buy this book if you like to fancy about Paris,the apartements owner's life and stuff,but let go if you are looking for inspiration.
Excuse me the bad enslish!
