At Home in Saint-Paul de Vence with a French Architect

July 19, 2013

The late architect Yves Bayard, who designed the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nice, reconstructed a 16th-century sheep barn with his wife, designer Jacqueline Morabito, in the town of Saint-Paul de Vence (home to the Fondation Maeght). We like the ad hoc window treatments: pieces of fabric casually tacked to the window frames.
