DESCRIPTION

This beautifully illustrated book, a companion volume to the best-selling En passant par la demeure (published by Verba Volant in 2005), presents three new extraordinary residences decorated by noted French interior designer Jean-Loup Daraux. Located in the south of France, these homes showcase the designer's ability to create rich compositions—using timeless furniture, antiques, contemporary artwork, with great imagination in a blend of tradition and innovation. All the interiors in By the Light of the Sea resonate with the spirit the Mediterranean and are unmistakably French in design. The shabby chic of a converted garage, the elegance of a simple French farmhouse, and the relaxed atmosphere of a seaside cabanon are all captured in stunning photographs by Mario Ciampi. With his fascinating personal comments, Daraux provides insight into the well-balanced blend of stylistic influences that make each of the homes so sophisticated and enchanting.
