Work

Spring is around the corner…(and so is my 40th birthday) and a major sweeping change is underway here.  I’ve recently been hired to take over the helm of the events department of a big luxury brand  in Paris. I’m super proud and excited, but of course it means saying goodbye to my design company.

There were many ups and downs in my adventure as an entrepreneur designer, and though I’m eager to turn the page and start off on a new chapter of my career, saying goodbye is always bittersweet.

I invite you to continue to follow me on my new Tumblr and of course Twitter !!

Love Josh

It’s all about the details….Here are some detail shots from a Paris pied-à-terre I’m working on now. The project has an open deadline, so the project has become a real laboratory of detail where I’m able to create a pretty complex collage of materials, and as the time passes, there are always new fresh seasonal flowers everywhere, (even in the bathroom I’m painting…)

It’s a real Indian summer here in Paris and the dahlias are in still full bloom in the most fiery autumn colors.  I took this picture yesterday in a residential project I’m finishing.  The sun was streaming through the open window and the interior just seemed like a painting.

The dahlias were placed on an amazing hand painted Moroccan side table with a very cool antique style cup I got from the Benaki Museum in Athens, and a vintage Fornasetti opera tray….all new favorites for the new season.

I made something really vibrant, really flowery, and really PINK for our Swiss friends who opened the After The Rain Spa in Paris this summer…..

I recently collaborated with some cool people to give the Motorvillage – Fiat/Alfa Romeo/Lancia/Maserati showroom on the Champs-Elysées a glamorous makeover for summer…. It was especially great to work with David Rager, as ususal, who creates killer graphics….the project was produced by the super crew at Artdicted ,  and Rafael from Plan-8 produced a series of really hot Kenneth Anger inspired video pieces.

Just recently, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to redesign the interiors and gardens of the 12th century Château du Suquet to create a stunning event space for our client L’Elysées Biarritz/Club du Cercle during the 64th International Film Festival.

The project included the design of five distinct spaces in the château: the gardens, the bar/lounge, a private salon, an interior courtyard, and a roof terrace with a sweeping view of the city and the bay.

We created an eccentrically patterned interior in a bold color scheme using custom built furniture mixed with select antiques and curiosities.

The thoughtful design was strong and flexible enough to allow eleven days of a variety of events such as press junkets, luncheons, Canal+ broadcasts, photo shoots, film premieres private dinners and late night dance parties to operate smoothly and in a chic, casual comfort.

Voted “Best Villa in Cannes” by 20minutes, the château was THE hot spot in Cannes during the festival, and the events were covered by noteworthy press including Vogue Paris, GQ, Le Blog Du Festival, Glamour, L’Officiel, Jalouse, Be, and Aufeminin.fr
