The iconic Vogue Italia editor, Franca Sozzani, who passed away in December of 2016, channeled her taste into many stunning residences. In this 19th century townhouse in Paris, she worked with her friend and architect Massimiliano Locatelli to revert the house from three apartments into a unified home and open the floorplan to allow more light onto the main floor (and the attic with a skylight). The original moldings were reproduced for a glorious traditional French foundation for which Sozzani applied her careful, reductive style. The floors were dyed black and the rooms filled with clean-lined, modern Italian and Scandinavian furniture with an emphasis on careful layering through the decoration. This stunning result is a true testament to her creative vision!
