Asian Antiques Enhance Home of Legendary Designer

Who doesn’t love a peek inside the home of a celebrity? We certainly do, so it was a pleasure to see this Architectural Digest piece on the Asian-inspired home decor of legendary fashion designer Valentino. The design icon shared a glimpse inside his palatial French chateau, which he has filled with all things Asian, from European chinoiserie ceramics to Chinese antiquities.

Valentino is shown standing in his renovated dovecote, a former pigeon house which he remodeled and decorated to be a sumptuous retreat.


In addition to the obviously gorgeous wall hangings and art, we love the one-of-a-kind metal railings, the velvet furnishings, and the lovely occasional tables.

The winter garden holds even more Asian antiques, and the profusion of floral patterns and motifs, combined with lots of natural light, really do create a garden-like ambiance.

Designers, what do you think of this interior design style? Whether you’re looking for antique furnishings or new accessories for your next Hartford interior design project, come visit us at DesignSourceCT.
