French designer Elizabeth Garouste got her start 50 years ago by creating costumes for productions by her friend the playwright and director Jean-Michel Ribes, now head of the Théâtre du Rond-Point in Paris. According to the designer, “I kept up the costuming for years. But I always wanted to do what I do now.”
The grand salon, where Garouste receives friends and displays her work, is set in a 19th-century building, once a mirror workshop, which opens onto a cobblestone terrace. Its decor is amazingly bold and beautiful, surrounded by art furniture.
Her kitchen is filled with color being on the furniture or even on the tiles through the setting. The yellow drawers are absolutely amazing and stand as the life of this room, being almost playful. Again, art is surrounding the kitchen, which gives a great artsy vibe around it.
Garouste’s living room is filled with drawings, masks, and sculptures. This completes absolutely the design identity of the designer that loves art and design. Her home and studio stand together in the name of art, completing her design look.
Elizabeth Garouste shares her Paris live-work space with a series of fantastical new furnishings that she will show at New York’s Ralph Pucci gallery in May. Make sure you don’t miss Elizabeth Garouste‘s exhibition!
