a fashion designer's home

I first saw this interior over the summer when a friend of mine lent me her copy of Elle Decor Italia and I can't get it out of my mind. It's a gutsy, elegant space that is understandably not for everyone. 610x801_Quality97_650x854_Quality97_ad_Mispelaere_FR-00070_

 

It takes someone with a pretty clear vision of what they like to create a space like this. It belongs to fashion designer Yvan Mispelaere and is located in a former gym in Paris, France.

The kitchen is housed inside this black box which helps separate the living area from the dining area.

If you've seen the film than you know that the Italian villa (Villa Necchi Campiglio) where it was shot plays a starring role (some would even say scene-stealing.) Definitely worth a look if you haven't seen it.

What do you think of this loft?
