A Dream Parisian Pied-a-terre

Fashion
Fashion designer L’Wren Scott and Mick Jagger’s glamorous left bank Paris pied-a-terre was featured in the May issue of Vogue. 
Adorned with elegant artwork, crystal chandeliers, oriental rugs covering herringbone flooring, high ceilings and windows draped with silk taffetta, designed by Scott herself.

The guest room features a painting by Francesco Clemente.  The curtains were dyed by the same silk manufacturer Scott uses to create her taffeta evening dresses.
Among a display of silver candlesticks and mirrors is a painting by Gabriel Jagger of his sister, Georgia.
The Art Deco bath is by Lalique, made in 1926 for a house in Paris.  Jagger purchased the ensemble at auction in the 1970’s and packed it away. The glass doors are patterned with fountains of bubbles, floor and wall tiles, a mirrored bathtub and cabinets, and plaque tiles depicting leaping koi.
Treasures that sit on a vanity in the bath.
The entrance hall. Warhol’s 1972 Mao print hangs above a Tristan Auer bench that Scott had upholstered in her own silk-velvet fabric. A L’Wren Scott bag in coral crocodile is perched on top, and a Persian lacquered vase found at a Paris flea market stands beside it.

The low, curved sofa in the drawing room is covered in cream bouclé tweed from the forties that “has the air of a vintage Balenciaga suit.” She found it in a store on the Rue de Lille.
Above a André Arbus dresser, hangs a watercolor of rose petals in concentric circles by Jade Jagger.
Resting on a 1930’s table by André Arbusa in the drawing room, is a rare medieval wooden carving of Saint Martin on a horse, rescued, Scott told Vogue, from Jagger’s château in the Loire. “The piece was sitting there in a niche above the chapel door, and someone had painted him blue. So I took him down and sent him to a restorer recommended by the Louvre.” Damien Hirst’s “Dots” hangs in the background.
A Warhol portrait of a young Mick Jagger hangs in her study, which is stacked with fashion-history and art books.
L’Wren Scott and an Andy Warhol print of John Giorno in the 1963 film Sleep.
I have no words… this room takes my breath away!  The custom Christophe Delcourt dining table, surrounded by gray lacquered chairs {the same chair sits in the guest room}.
A pair of masquerade masks rest on a collection of fashion and art books in the library.
Multiple gilded mirrors hang in the rose coloured hallway. 
How do you feel about the rose colour?

    I love every inch of this apartment but that curved sofa, just too much!! (I really did feel my heart start to race as soon as I laid eyes on it-I know I need help!-LOL!)
    Absolutely stunning!

    I love the rose colored hall way. The apartment is so pretty and yet modern. I hope they actually get to live there a bit not just a day or two. Mick was very good on Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago. I also like that it is so light filled as Paris can be very grey in winter.
