My friend Gabrielle lives in a gorgeous renovated chateau near Versailles, France. This is just one elegant corner of her home, which is filled with character and an artful blend of modern items with antiques. I'll be photographing her chateau soon for a magazine feature.
Gabrielle is a former antiques dealer, with superb styling skills. The coral on a Napoleon III stand was a gift from me. The nacre fish inside the antique globe is from the same period. The framed 19th-century plant examples are from a French pharmacy.
