Pied A Terre

I think featured collections that are sometimes unusual 
make a room very interesting. 
It often can give ones guests a peek into 
who the home owner really is 
and what he or she is about. 
It seems to me like the designer of this space, 
Stephan Shubel 
 has a great deal of clarity on this aspect of interior design.

This is a Paris Apartment featured in a design magazine back in 2005.
The image above would make a great painting I think.

as featured in Elle Decor  - April 2005
It is obvious to me that his work stands the test of time.
These images are taken 5 years ago, and many design blogs are featuring
items, finishes, and appointments that he used back in 2005.

Look at the pillow on the right...........
this is catching on like wild fire just now
in  furniture, home design, and the bloggie world.

Do you like his work?
Could you live here?

  1. long as I didn't have to dust! Love the collar collection!

  2. love the apartment. My Bichon Frise would love the view as well.


  3. Hi style,
    I like his work..


  4. Yes, love his work. Those rooms have so much personality and interest too them, which sets his work apart from many designers. You're right about that one image - it would make a great painting. Have a good weekend!

  5. That 3rd pic is fabulous. I have a Swedish watercolor (1940) of a similar room. Could work...not live there....great post Ms. Finberg...Thanks..K

  6. Mr. Shubel's work is wonderful and you're right... these rooms will be as current 10 years from now as they were 10 years ago, timeless.

  7. mais OUI ! And I am not for rooms going out of style every time the wind blows anyway...

  8. I like Stephan Shubel's work very much. To me there is a timelessness about it. He used the same type of divan's in his San Fransisco studio. I love his bedroom & floors in his fisherman's cottage. His aesthetic is very livable.

  9. please my friends......
    i must have been hallucinating or was really tired when i wrote this post.
    i initially said that these rooms were done 15 years ago----:-/
    excuse me, i can't seem to add.
    i have corrected the post.
    2005 was only 5 years ago!!!


  10. Oh, I could easily live in those rooms. I would write novels in them.

  11. Yes & yes! But given the rather petite surroundings MOTH would have to take his 6'6"/120kgs. elsewhere to live. I can see tears there as he tries to negotiate his way around this gorgeous space. And anyways there doesn't appear to be a flat screen to watch the Game!
    Millie ^_^

  12. I like the collars, 1900's who would have thought to do that.
    If you are awake this morning call me....

  13. Oh Renee,
    This is my kinda look ! ... and you are so right. That would make a good painting.
    I'm guilty of loving the grain sack cushions. I have quite a few of them.
    It is true though. This style will never go out of fashion. It is timeless, just how good decorating should be.
    P.S. I've aked your mum to place a virtual bet on a grey horse in The Derby for me !! Hehe. XXXX



Thanks for participating!!

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.

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.
