We gather inspiration from everywhere: fashion, history, architecture, our travels, and of course, our interior design peers. There is one that stands out from the rest, French architect and interior designer, Joseph Dirand. His signature style can be found around the world in luxury hotels, restaurants, private residences, and couture boutiques. He is the ultimate master of balance: opulence and restraint, modern and classical, sensual yet cool.
We are constantly reaching for his new book, Interior, as a reference and also for assurance to design in the way that we love: a limited color palette in muted neutrals, layering textures and natural materials, and blending old and new. Every image is absolutely gorgeous, shot by his brother, photographer Adrien Dirand. His website portfolio is breathtaking as well and we loved peeking into his home in this video. We are truly inspired by his intense passion and deep commitment to his work and can’t wait to see what’s next on the horizon for Joseph Dirand.
