Steal This Look: A Bath Inspired by Hermes

Issue 70 · Renovation and Reclamation · April 30, 2013

French designer Marianne Evennou is all about color clashes, the kind that work in an unexpectedly harmonious fashion.

Her latest project is an artists' home in the 20th arrondissement of Paris, an area also referred to as the "Parisian countryside" for its remote, relaxed vibe. Each room retains a modernist appeal with washes of teal in the hallway, lime green in the dining room, blue-gray in the kitchen, and the bath in a deep terra cotta orange. Pair that orange with green marble tile and traditional fixtures and fittings to recreate the look (see our sources below). To see the rest of the house, visit Marianne Evennou.
