This beautifully illustrated book, a companion volume to the best-selling En passant par la demeure (published by Verba Volant in 2005), presents three new extraordinary residences decorated by noted French interior designer Jean-Loup Daraux. Located in the south of France, these homes showcase the designer's ability to create rich compositions with a combination of ageless furniture, antiques, contemporary artwork, and imaginative finishings- that synthesise tradition and innovation. All the spaces in By the Light of the Sea resonate with the spirit the Mediterranean and are unmistakably French by design. The elegance of a simple French farmhouse, the chic of a converted warehouse, and the allure of a seaside home are all captured in stunning photographs by Mario Ciampi. Anecdotal essays by Daraux provide insight into the balanced blend of stylistic influences that make each of the homes so sophisticated and enchanting.
