Isabelle Stanislas: Designing Spaces, Drawing Emotions

The renowned Paris-based architect and interior designer debuts a monograph capturing her signature warm, elegantly modern aesthetic.

Isabelle Stanislas’s interiors nod to historical sources while exuding a refreshing contemporary style. Known for her knack for subtly interweaving art, landscaping, architecture, and materials, she has been regularly called upon by private homeowners and luxury houses such as Cartier and Hermès since founding her firm in 2000. Most recently, the designer was tapped by the French president to breathe new life into the Élysée Palace—skyrocketing her prestige even further.
From architecture and construction to interior design and bespoke furniture, this highly anticipated monograph explores the impressive breadth of Stanislas’s creative approach through twelve diverse properties. Defined by precision, minimalism, and a unique take on French style, the designer’s modus operandi emerges from the pages of this dazzling volume. Specially commissioned photographs take readers on a journey from Paris to London to Portugal. Complete with insightful texts that unpack each project and Stanislas’s artistic universe, this book is a must-have addition to the libraries of design masters and aficionados alike.

"When you’ve worked on the Élysée Palace and had your own creations featured in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, it would seem that the sky’s the limit. And in the case of designer Isabelle Stanislas, that is indeed the case. This fall the decorator is out with a publication that gathers all the softly-lit style of her French-inflected interiors. (She’s also on the cusp of releasing a fragrance, as if she weren’t busy enough.) For those in the market for a new book, expect parquet flooring, warm neutrals, and impressive pieces of art. That, and gorgeous furniture as far as the eye can see." —ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST

"In this monograph, Isabelle Stanislas, a designer with clients as illustrious as Cartier, Hermès, and the French president, makes a case for historical preservation, restraint, and ease." —ELLE DECOR
