Marie-Gabrielle is a friend of us. She had been looking for a flat for an entire year before finding the one, right bank, in a very popular neighbourhood of Paris. She rethought the whole place out and turned it into a very elegant flat. Marie-Gabrielle knows what she wants and finds it: a Knoll table (not the usual one with marble top, no, one of those rare ones with a wooden top), household utensils made out of wood and silk from Merci, a big mirror for her kitchen, but only if it was piqued, etc. etc. She now hankers for a linen maid who would iron and fold her laundry by the rulebook... I guess Marie-Gabrielle just has the lifestyle standards her surname deserves!

The courtyard. All photos by Clarisse Demory, except the bedroom and the table with apples by Marie-Gabrielle.
