My husband calls me a hoarder, I call myself a passionate collector. He’s not convinced. I think I can learn something from Ariane Dalle and the way she lives with her treasures in a stylized and surprisingly uncluttered manner. The design director of fabric houses Manuel Canovas and Larsen lives in a modest, 850 square foot apartment in Paris, which means each of her collections are thoughtfully displayed. Dhotis from India are sewn into curtains, antique fencing masks are hung as art, small straw bags are hung as decor next to a bed, and vintage French ceramics line the top of a kitchen shelf . . . so seemingly effortlessly chic.

It’s absolutely wonderful how she arranges everything, I love the details!
What a beautiful home! Passionate collector indeed <3
I love this. How cool is she?
So in love with the rustic look. Details are everything, and she’s nailed it. ENVY!!!!
In comparison, I can only do tiny crafts and DIY. Haha
There is definitely a distinction between hoarder and passionate collector (although I myself have been called both!). As someone who loves lots of stuff, I’m impressed by this creative use of space.
Oh wow… I could also be a passionate collector !
I love how everything is displayed. Hoarder goals 😉
STUNNING!!! I love how the French just do interior design so well. My husband’s family has a lot of antiques and his father is the decorator in his family, owning collections of beautiful Greek statues, paintings and furniture. My husband unfortunately has not inherited the passion, but I’ve vowed to keep it up!
THIS WAS JAW-DROPPING.
love the pops of green!
I love how beautiful everything looks!
Wonderful inspiration here!!! Do you know the name of the color of the bold pink wall??? The one with the large Fab mirror? Moving and looking for the perfect wall color to highlight my global collections.
