Opening of Festival de Cannes 2012

“Cannes belongs to each and every one of us who, year after year, from wherever we are and in our own individual way, contributes towards creating it step by step. It is only by constantly analyzing the Festival, adapting its function and encouraging debate about it that we will continue to make it the very best it can be. Cannes must be open to new ideas, while remaining faithful to its past, of course. Diversity can only enrich it. That´s what makes the Festival de Cannes our festival.” - Thierry Frémaux

A Grand Parisian Bathroom

Interior designer and author of a dozen books on design, the Texas Betty Lou Philips is defined as an ambassador of 'good taste to the French'.

Like millions of other Americans, 
Betty Lou Phillips shares a fascination for France and all it represents. A renowned interior designer and best-selling, award-winning author, Phillips excels at translating the secrets of French design for savvy American tastes. Her ten French and Italian design books have collectively sold nearly a half million copies.

An antique chandelier, a burnished cast-iron tub, silver decor, and a vintage pharmacy cabinet give the bathroom in designer Betty Lou Philips's home its luxurious French style.

Swathed in Carrara marble and aglow under a 19th-century chandelier hanging from the 11-foot-high ceiling, the guest bathroom in designer Betty Lou Phillips's French-style Dallas house was inspired by baths in five-star luxury hotel suites. Monsieur and Madame "mats" are inlaid mosaics.

Her immaculate taste and passion for all thing French are clearly beautiful.  To purchase Betty Lou Philips's books, please visit her website here.

What's your workspace like?

The workspace for professionals nowadays may not necessarily be at a well-organized desk with post-its on the wall and super neat arrangements surrounding it.  Since young, I find it easy to get ideas and study at the dining table or couch.  It's just that my energy flow and creativity doesn't come through at a study or office desk!

My workspace is always at the dining table.  My beautiful carved, wooden dining table with fresh flowers and work spread.  It's spontaneous, my energy and ideas flow, and I love how there is no pressure but yet work is being produced.  I have sold my office desk as it doesn't have any purpose.

I'm so glad to learn that Garance Doré does the same!  Great minds think alike?  Share with us about your workspace at the comments or email us at info@lestyle.org.
