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.
