“I find white cold and boring.”

TheRioYou retorna com a linda casa de praia da decoradora francesa Jaqueline Coumans, dona da Le Décor Français localizada na 72nd e Lexington Av.  A especialidade da designer é misturar tecidos e mobílias antigas, criando os mais variados ambientes. A decoração de sua casa em South Hamptons tem uma inspiração exótica de fauna & flora, com variados tons de lilás e azul. Sem medo da extravagância visual, a audacia dessa casa é de uma mulher com olhar hábil, que se identifica com a mistura de varias estampas e estilos. Todas os tecidos da casa são da loja dela. Em uma entrevista para o NY Social Diary, ela conta como aprecia o passar do tempo e as lembranças que seus pertences lhe trazem, “I think that new things are made to be with you for a long time—if you choose them well and if the quality is good, then you have accomplished something good.” Jacqueline acredita que o lar deveria representar o dono, e para alegrar o ambiente de sua casa, gosta de receber os amigos para jantar. “I love to entertain. I love people. I like the connection and I like hospitality. I like when people feel good here and they have a good time – it makes me feel really happy. I should have had a restaurant. But it’s not about food though, it’s about friends.” Como ja dizia Dona Canô, “Viver é muito bom, mas saber viver é melhor”.

TheRioYou returns with the beautiful beach house of Jacqueline Coumans, french decorator and owner of Le Décor Français located at 72nd e Lexington Av. The designer’s specialty is to mix fabrics and antiques, creating a wide range of ambiances. Her South Hamptons house is composed of exotic fauna & flora, with tonal variations of lilacs and blues. Without fearing lavish visual information, this home’s audacity is done by a woman with skillful eyes, that identifies with multi layerings of prints and styles. All of the fabrics used in the decor are from her store. In an interview for the NY Social Diary, she shares her appreciation of time and the memories of her belongings, “I think that new things are made to be with you for a long time—if you choose them well and if the quality is good, then you have accomplished something good.”. Jacqueline believes a home should be representative of the owner, and to enjoy her free time, she enjoys having friends over. “I love to entertain. I love people. I like the connection and I like hospitality. I like when people feel good here and they have a good time – it makes me feel really happy. I should have had a restaurant. But it’s not about food though, it’s about friends.” As Dona Canô (Caetano Veloso’s deceased mother) would say, “Existing is good, but knowing how to live is even better.”
