WOULD YOU BET IT IS PARIS?

When an interior designer decorates her own home in Paris, the result is always as peculiar as personal. The most fashionable decorator in France, Emilie Bonaventure, showed us in her Parisian flat.


Emilie Bonaventure – founder of the be-attitude agency in 2005 – is all that and her projects prove it to perfection. She is an interior architect, designer, decorator and contemporary art expert, passionate about fashion and gastronomy.

Located in the 9th arrondissement, on the famous street des Martyrs in the district of Montmartre, Emilie Bonaventure’s apartment is his personal refuge but until recently it was also his office. Here, she used to work with her team, particularly in the dining room where the Rose Bakery Team Room concept was born, for example, in the Le Bon Marché store. Today Emilie has an office outside her house, just a few meters from her bright and typically Parisian apartment that has a wooden floor, moldings and fireplaces.

Emilie studied art history at the school of the Louvre and the decor of her home reflects her taste for discipline and especially for objects. “An object is a part of itself, a piece of its own puzzle,” he says. Each element of his apartment tells a story and many were found in the flea market of Saint-Ouen (on the outskirts of Paris). Furniture from the 40s, 50s and 60s coexist with contemporary works of art.

In general, Emilie designs colorful creations with many contrasts. On the contrary, it privileged in its home the neutral tones like the Wimborne White of Farrow & Ball that is combined with some brown and black touches. In the room, he chose pieces from different periods – such as Geoffrey Harcourt’s chair and the neon work of the artist Eric Michel – but with the same types of colors. In the dining room where the table is by Angelo Mangiarotti, the chairs are from the 50’s and the brass lamp dates from the 70’s, the David Hicks wallpaper for Au Fil des Couleurs stands out.

Totally black and gray, the kitchen adorned with works by Pierre Soulages is one of the key spaces. Emilie loves to cook, a passion that was born from her childhood, because her parents own restaurants. “When I was eight, I was fortunate enough to eat with chef Marc Veyrat. I never forgot this experience. The mixture of curiosity, imagination, creativity and professionalism that characterizes it has become a true example for me, a way of thinking. ”

The chromatic palette of the bedroom refers to the living room and provides a peaceful feeling. Interested in people in their everyday universe and their relationship with objects in their environment, Emilie Bonaventure always seeks to generate new ideas to give life to spaces with style.

LE MARIE CELESTE

LE MARIE CELESTE GASTRO-PUB

03The Bar: “Le Marie Celeste gastro-pub in the Marais has top-notch cocktails and great food, all done with a slight Nordic twist.”

The Drink: “Ask for a glass of crisp Domaine Labet Savagnin, a great white from their strong list of small, biodynamic French wines.”

The Bottle to Bring Back: “Chartreuse M.O.F. It was co-created by a sommelier and is not available in the States. Mix it with a cold-brew coffee and you’ve got a crazy good caffeine cocktail!

“You have to commit,” he said firmly, as he described the process that determined the character of his new collection. “It was finished in summer, the look was done, the image was there three weeks before Christmas.”

ROLAND MOURET F/W 2015 PARIS FASHION WEEK RTW

“The collection is for a woman who uses words, both for their poetry and their violence,” explained Mouret backstage. “And in music, I am attracted to people who don’t hesitate to open their mouths.”

CARVEN F/W 2015 PARIS FASHION WEEK RTW

“Make it electric,” said new designer Adrien Caillaudaud. “She is a nice Parisienne, but now we want to give her a nice twist, to electrolyze her.”

PACO RABANNE F/W 2015 PARIS FASHION WEEK RTW

Julien Dossena has done it again. His fall/winter 2015 show for Paco Rabanne was another considered, sporty chic lineup that put an accent on new volumes, impressive fabric developments and novel disk dress updates.

BALMAIN F/W 2015 PARIS FASHION WEEK RTW

Ostensibly this show was meant to be a celebration of Paris as a global melting pot of cultures, races and religions. A cosmopolitan capital city that embraces all and refuses nothing.

LEMAIRE F/W 2015 PARIS FASHION WEEK RTW

At Lemaire, rebranded last January to sole moniker of its eponymous founder, it was so. The work of Christophe Lemaire, its languidly ascetic purity, always eschewed any blatant displays, removed sentimentality and promoted a form of restraint. That was still the case, evident in the way an overcoat enveloped the silhouette or in the restrained palette of urban neutrals, in black, blues and creams.

CEDRIC CHARLIER F/W 2015 PARIS FASHION WEEK RTW

At Cédric Charlier’s show on Wednesday, the designer had one of the chicest actresses of her generation sitting in the front row. Charlotte Rampling, with her hooded gaze that gave nothing away, took in the designer’s colorful and sporty collection and was the first to congratulate Charlier backstage afterwards.

“I was looking to create a pure and sporty line that defined a silhouette that is active and ergonomic. A shape that fits with our times,” said Charlier about his intent for fall/winter 2015 offering.

YANG LI F/W 2015 PARIS FASHION WEEK RTW

“Tension,” said (apparently utterly un-tense) Yang Li after his Fall show: “It was absolutely about tension.” Tension is a positive force? “You have to destroy to create.” Ah, that old chestnut. Then what was he destroying today? “Well, with my hands, in the lineup, I was destroying the clothes.”

“I find beautiful what happens after.”

DRIES VAN NOTEN F/W 2015 PARIS FASHION WEEK RTW

The first outfit and the last told the story of Dries Van Noten’s exquisite new collection. “Grounded glamour” was his theme, and from the moment Lia Pavlova stepped out on the runway (it truly qualified for that designation, stretching the entirety of a magnificent salon in the Hôtel de Ville), Van Noten’s intentions were clear—and his aim was true.

“It was all different woman,” said Van Noten after the show.

EACH X OTHER F/W 2015 PARIS FASHION WEEK RTW

“Music is liquid architecture; architecture is frozen music.” Continuing Goethe’s thought, you could posit that fashion is the stopgap that puts architecture back in movement. For their first show in Paris, Each x Other chose the Palais de Tokyo’s Yoyo. In this perfect backdrop for the art-meets-fashion brand founded by Jenny Mannerheim and Ilan Delouis, the words of Robert Montgomery blazed out from the back wall.

DÉVASTÉE F/W 2015 PARIS FASHION WEEK RTW

What stood out on the Devastée runway today is how well Ophelie Klere and François Alary know fabric. The devoré pattern of an intarsia knit, with Monster Munch-like smiley faces in a minute houndstooth standing out on a cream background, made that eminently clear. A monochrome palette highlighted textures just exactly, while the happy gloom of their motifs traced their way throughout.

“Je suis un sauvage et je connais pas d’autre façon de vivre,” sing-sang a childish voice with lines picked from chief Si’ahl’s 1854 address. Unlike previous seasons, there was a raw intensity here that belied the levity of models padding around barefoot.
