Paris Via New York, Part Deux





Remember the fantastic Parisian-inspired apartment of Hervé Pierre I posted about earlier this week?  Well my darlings, imagine my excitement when I stumbled across these images from House & Garden back in 2002 of the very same apartment!  The moment I saw the bed with its ostrich plumes I died and went to French heaven.  The place is brimming with Monsieur Pierre’s creative touches from the panels flanking the sofa (he painted them himself!) to the stunning, whimsical tarot card castle (yet another one of Pierre’s masterpieces—isn’t it magical?).

A bit of exciting news—I’ve been invited by the man himself to visit the Carolina Herrera studio and see where the magic happens!  I’m so excited I fear I may faint!  Thank you Monsieur Pierre, you are magnificent!

    Herve! How I love your stories—I can imagine you as a young man riding with Madame Carven in her beautiful car! I will email you with updates. Think I’m planning a trip to Manhattan in September. Not soon enough, but would love to see you! xx Katie
