Stephen Shubel's Parisian Pied-a-Tierre


Domino recently featured a spread on Stephen Shubel's
design studio in Sausalito which I really enjoyed reading
about and seeing. After seeing photos of his Pied-a-Tierre
in Paris, I'm pretty confident this was his inspiration for
the decor in his design studio. He literally wanted to take
a piece of Paris with him.

Above is the living area of his Paris Pied-a-Tierre and I
absolutely adore it! It has so much charater with different
found things and has a very cozy feeling at the same time.
Very beautiful.



I love the gilt mirros and I have a soft
spot for fabric that has writing on it.



The perfect place to lounge and have company.



A place for a cup of tea perhaps?

Here are photos of his design studio in Sausalito.
You can see that his inspiration does indeed come
from his little Paris flat.


This is one HUGE head!!



I always did love the drama of black and
white stripes. The stripes juxtaposed with
the silhouette pillow looks amazing.



A very cozy bedroom with
a cheetah rug no less.



Stephen Shubel is quite good with
decorating nooks and corners.



Here's another little nook.



And another!



The studio looks like a modern variation
of his Paris place. I can totally understand
why he would want to take his piece of Paris
back to California with him.


I thought this bathroom was just brilliant.
Very fun and classy at the same time.

So what do you think of Stephen Shubel's
Parisian Pied - a -Tierre? I totally fell in
love with it! Any takers?

All photos from Steven Shubel's site.

That bathroom looks like in a tent, what a bathroom anyway. The other picture are so pretty as usual :)

Alkemie, you would also love seeing his California house as featured in San Francisco Style, the book!

Oh lovely! I can see the inspiration. It is always a joy to stop by your place.

I think the bathroom is too big top for me but I love the leoprad carpet running from his stairs into the bedroom and all the varied gilt frames over the couch.

I clipped out that photo from this month's domino for a loft decor idea but had never seen the other angles- thanks Karen!

Each one of these photos are fabulous. Love the studio and the residence! How cool is the framed piece with a bunch of white collars?!

Love this style:)

Love,love the stripes!

I think that the striped bathroom is from one of the show-houses, and that the ceiling is actually flat!

I think you are absolutely right! It does look transported. Such great details.

Alkemie said...

I'm so glad you could all draw inspiration this post. I really enjoyed reading the article about Shubel in Domino which prompted more digging. I just thought his little Pied-a-tierre was so quintissentially French and very cute and cozy! The way he transported it back to California was neat too :)

Such a great mix of wild and refined. Read somewhere that the hedges on the terrace of design studio in Sausalito are actually walls of plastic greenery, created for privacy.

The bathroom is brilliant. The black and white is so simple but seems so elephant.
