At the risk of boring you all to death with yet another post about David Collins and Spanish Architectural Digest….I’ll put a slightly different spin on this one. Suffice to say though, I got my fix of both this month. My heart almost stopped when I saw the spread on the latest incarnation of Collins’ London abode. Okay, so back to the spin. The apartment, as expected, has a fabulous assortment of art. One piece in particular seemed quite familiar and then I realised that the same piece is in another of my all time favorite apartments, the Boston residence of designer Frank Roop. The piece I’m referring to is “La Folie” by photographer Didier Massard. There is something a little romantic, and also a little eerie about it – like most of his work. A quick browse through his website and I’m in love!

Didier Massard’s latest book was released late last year and is available on Amazon. It’s definitely going on my wish list – along with a few of his photographs!
