Jean Demachy has been the creator and publisher of French Elle Decor for 10 years.
Francois Baudot has written many books on fashion and style and is the French Elle Decor journalist specializing in style.
These two books celebrate French interior design. Ypma shows how interior decoration in Paris has evolved over three centuries to create what he feels can easily be identified as a Paris interior, "a rich and vibrant fusion that combines the collective contribution of historical precedent with the dynamism of a desire to be modern." His book is replete with color photographs that detail the special features of the Paris interior, from Chinoiserie to Art Deco. Elle Decor uses a wealth of color photographs to present domestic interiors throughout France, including the often-overlooked areas of the Atlantic seacoast and the French Alps. The book reviews the details that typify each style and ends by showing the interiors of homes belonging to various interior and fashion designers, including Yves Saint Laurent, Kenzo, Andrie Putnam, and Philippe Stark. Purchase both books for large interior design collections.
