Elliott Barnes is one of the interior designers of AD100 for 2022 and we want to show you a little bit of his work. Stay with us and get to know more!
This home belongs to Hélène Nguyen-Ban and she is an art lover. For many days her and Elliott talked about art, family and togetherness, that is exactly what we are going to see here. This place is located in the French Alpes and needed to have the right architect, so Gérard Ravello stepped in. Together, they created a holistic home, where there is a unique connection between the interior and the exterior.
Now, let’s talk a little bit more about the house and it’s secrets. This is the dining room with dining table and chairs that were found in the flea market. Besides that, there is columnar sculpture by the hand of Pascale Marthine Tayou.
The kitchen has every single details from La Cornue, that includes the range, hood, and cabinetry.
According with Hélène and Elliott Barner, this is called the small saloon. Here we can see a Hans Wegner lounge chair, side by side with a Guillerme et Chambron sofa. There is also a Kerstin Olby chaise long and a judge’s chair by Piette Jeanneret and Le Corbusier.
This work of art takes our breath away, it has the hand of Benoit Huot and its over the main stair hall.
French Alpes Home
As we said before, Hélène is passionate about art and her collection of objects is from all over the world, but here, we can see objects from Japan, China and Korea in a vintage table from Guillerme et Chambron.
This is a very unique corner, with Pierre de Vals stone and pine. We might think that this spot belongs to the office!
Welcome to the primary bathroom, where Elliott Barnes place a William Holland tub and Astom Matthews fittings. Both showers belong to Volevatch.
After the primary bathroom, there the primary bedroom. Simple decoration and amazing views.
The children’s bedroom (one of them) has Dear fabric that covers the headboard. Once again, the snow is the main view here.
Now, get inside the children’s bathroom with sinks that belong to each children. This is an amazing idea for the kids!
The interior pool needed to be here as well! There is retractable floor covers the pool in order to create a multi-functional space.
The whine cellar features a Zhan Wang sculpture, with a view to the granite hillside.
Last, but the least, a view from the outside. Elliott Barns said that “Hélène likes to live with the works she collects almost in the way one would live with family portraits—everything has a connection and an emotional resonance,”. “Pieces move in and out, so the installation isn’t static. Like the house itself and the experiences it nurtures, the art feels alive.”
