Carolina Irving



I really flipped for the complex mix of exotic patterns in Carolina Irving's apartment, photographed by Francois Halard for Vogue, October 2006, as shown above top. So, I was thrilled to recently discover a detailed video of Irving's apartment featured on a French site called Interieurs. Here's the link: "Chez Carolina." One tedious thing: registration is required to view the video and the site is entirely in French, but if you like textiles, Indian block prints and globe-trotter chic, the extra time is worth the effort.

See also Carolina Irving Textiles.

The second image above is from Interieurs.

This apartment kind of follows your book theme of late, Carolin's got some serious shelving going on. Lovely apartment...makes me wish California had "pre-war" apartments, with beautiful architectural detailing and nice hardwood floors... blah if I see one more stucco prefab house I may wretch.

Frances, do you think it's been published somewhere other than American Vogue?
