balay ni marc jacobs

love the look of marc jacobs’ apartment in france. simple, very classic and rather masculine for a reknowned designer (one would probably expect an armani or versace kind of frivolous extravagance in fashion gods’ homes, which jacobs is not). and i love the playfulness of the photographs with marc jacobs in it. the apartment has a bit of retro furniture, which i currently am into, and evokes a mix french and manhattan-ish feel to it. i thought his house is intimate enough and stuff like this drives me mad wanting to eventually get our own place soon, one that we can dressup and design to our liking. especially since my list of wants for the home gets longer every time. hehehe
