Fanny Millet and David, Andrea 8, Adam 5 years old

Fanny is one of those people who made us want to start The Socialite Family. She is an old friend, and the idea of the magazine was born from watching her. How does she manage to create such an original and authentic setting? Where does she hunt for antiques? With a busy family and professional life, Fanny found time to tell The Socialite Family a few of her secrets and inspirations. Their interior is creative and original: it looks like no other. There are Swedish wallpaper in the corridor, sheepskin rugs on the floors and carpeting that sets the tone for the whole interior. No items is there by chance. Whether heirloom or the result of bargain-hunting, the furniture is carefully chosen. There is an almost intellectual bent in the choices of these two aesthetes, who approach daily life as if it were an art of living. With their preference for going against the tides and trends of decorative fashion, their apartment is one of our favourite places.

Fanny, how did you choose the style of this space?

Fanny

We wanted very thick carpeting and when we chose Bordeaux as a colour, a somewhat seventies style was unavoidable.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Fanny

In the landscape and in nature when I am on holiday, in magazines and books when I am working.

Do you have a favourite contemporary design period?

Fanny

The Le Corbusier years, the seventies for foam furniture, the Memphis movement years.

What do you lack in your home?

Fanny

Interior shutters in the living room, to match the time when the building was designed, and I need plants, wood, raw materials, but I don’t lack objects.

Is it easy to reconcile family life with a beautiful interior?

Fanny

We have few breakables; I dont like to hoard things so I’m always throwing things away and I buy very little.

Did David help with the decoration? How about the children?

Fanny

Of course, David and I did everything together. I would not want to impose a style on him. The children chose the colours for their rooms; Andrea’s brief was a room in gold, and they often place their own works on the walls!

What would the room of your craziest dreams be?

Fanny

A Japanese bathroom entirely in wood, including the bathtub.

What is the cheap purchase of which you are the most proud?

Fanny

A painting by Pierre Seinturier, a very talented young artist.

Could you recommend a restaurant in Paris or elsewhere?

Fanny

In my quarter, Caffè Stern for breakfast, Frenchie to go in for all occasions and Workshop Issey for dinner.
