Macau trực tuyến Baccaratjean cocteau is rad

I wrote about Jean Cocteau's Milly-la-Forêt maison a little over a year and a half ago, but when I found these beautiful images I couldn't help but write about it again. Madeline Castaing, one of the premier decorators of the 20th century, assisted with the design. And I'm mad for it. Leopard walls, a tufted canopied bed, art and art supplies everywhere... it's perfect. The horn chair reminds me of a post I wrote for Coveted Home earlier this week (Coveted Home is a super cool boutique and design studio in KC where I now work, though it feels more like play :). Would you ever upholster your walls in an animal print? I totally would. Especially if I could do it in this Scalamandre number! Dream big.

chez jean cocteau



Above is eccentric artist/poet Jean Cocteau’s Milly-la-Forêt maison. My knowledge of Mr. Cocteau is limited (I do know that the man liked to hold professional meetings in his bedroom, where he would lay in bed and smoke opium...), but I would love to find out more. His home, which opened to the public this summer, houses original sketches by Proust and Picasso in addition to portraits by Warhol and Man Ray. Cocteau insisted that Madeleine Castaing decorate his home, hence the bold leopard wallpaper (which I think is divine!). Katie and Jane don’t know it yet, but I think a Matchbook field trip to Milly-la-Forêt is in order :)

(P.S. - did you know that Jean Cocteau is one of Miles Redd's favorite artists?)

mad for madeleine



I spent most of Saturday night paging through Emily Evans Eerdmans’ new book, “The World of Madeleine Castaing.” Dear readers, I am now obsessed with this incredibly inventive 20th century decorator! The book is set to release on October 26, but for those of you who are like me and hate to wait, there are plenty of ways to get your Madeleine Castaing fix now. First, I’d recommend checking out this fascinating article RE: Ms. Castaing written by New York interior designer David Netto for the Wall Street Journal. Then, I’d (strongly) suggest browsing through the online catalog of Sotheby’s 2004 Madeleine Castaing auction. I’m rather devastated that her home is not in tact anymore as I would have loved to visit it... looking on the bright side, I guess now we can view her possessions from the comfort of our own homes! One of my favorite pieces that was auctioned off are the quirky copper tiebacks in the shape of a woman's arm. Don’t they remind you of the curtain tiebacks Hervé Pierre has in his home? Ahh, I just can’t wait to talk more about the book-- I think we can all learn a little from Madeleine!

charlotte moss on madeleine castaing



I just came across this smart interview with Charlotte Moss on Emily Evans Eerdmans’ blog... it was such a treat to read. Emily speaks with Charlotte about Madeleine Castaing, the renowned 20th century French designer who has largely influenced Ms. Moss’ design aesthetic. Emily literally wrote the book on Madeleine Castaing-- it’s due in stores later this month. Charlotte tells Emily that the chair above is a reproduction of one of Castaing’s creations; the pair of opaline “cachepots” came from Castaing’s personal estate. Can you imagine? This interview makes me very excited for the publication of The World of Madeleine Castaing... only three more weeks!
