In addition to her love for fashion, Lisa Perry also has a great passion for interior design. Anyone who knows her as a fashion designer knows that she inspires her collections on 1960s icons like André Courrèges and Pierre Cardin, but her residences also have a similar Pop Art look. Her holiday home in the south of France is a wonderful example of this.
How did Lisa Perry and her husband Richard end up with a house on the Côte d'Azur? It all started during the last presidential elections in the United States. Perry is a democrat at heart and promised to leave the country if Hillary Clinton didn't win. No sooner said than done, because it was Trump who won and Perry who left the US. Lisa Perry grew up in Chicago but has had a love affair with everything French since she was a teenager. So, it was quite obvious that she would one day move to France. The couple found an almost finished, fully furnished modernist villa in Villefranche-sur-Mer with a breathtaking view of the bay of Villefranche.
Perry’s love of fashion and furniture from the sixties led her to French furniture designer Pierre Paulin. She wanted a complete Paulin environment for her living and dining rooms. Some of the pieces Perry has of him – she has about 20 – had never gone into production, such as the custom-made table in the dining room with swivel chairs and the chandelier that hangs gracefully above it. The floor that was used in the room is a limestone from Limra. The master bathroom has an Agape bath that overlooks the pool and the bay behind it. Perry chose a Noisette Fleury marble for the floor.
And it didn’t end here. Lisa Perry even founded her own company ‘Lisa Perry Homes’ early 2019. So, we are already looking forward to many more exquisite interior designs from her!
