To me, a pied-à-terre should be a little fantasy, a taste of another life that makes you feel special when you’re there. This client lived in a large suburban home, so I took their city pied-à-terre somewhere more romantic, making the most of the sunlight that pours in every window. The glamour of Hollywood became the inspiration for this study in neutrals. Every room glows, as if you were in a movie. 12 years later, the owners haven’t changed a thing. But, then, with the best fantasies, you never do.
