A Paris Home That Is Hidden In Plain Sight


Is this door amazing or what???
It the 5 years to get the building permit for this unusual home.


It is covered with ferns that are specially fed.



Say you have just robbed a museum, 
or pulled off the Great Train Robbery.

Wouldn't this be a great place to lay low
 while hiding in plain sight?

Can you believe this was built in 2008?
What took so long for it to hit the 'Times'?



Read NYT article here. It's short.

  2. Now that's a handi-cap door.

    Very unsusal way to hide.
    Can't figure out what kind of bottles those are.

  4. There is no way my husband can see this! He would do this to my house. He is already researching tall evergreens to screen out the neighbors. This is romantic in Paris, ridiculous in Suburbia.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
