Eclectic Alix Thomsen

2 months ago by

There are certain spaces that, upon entering, just make sense. Whether or not you understand how they came to be perfectly put together with interesting items, objects, and belongings scattered about seems irrelevant amid the furniture and decor you could have sworn you saw somewhere in a dream. Alix Thomsen has one of these spaces. The perfect balance of eclectic charm and understated elegance which exist seamlessly amongst the quintessential Parisian detailing – tall white walls, crown molding, herringbone floors…

Perhaps it’s Alix’s background that has afforded her the ability to build such an engaging space. Beginning with her eponymous clothing label and then spiraling into a full blown interior career, which impressively includes designing Paris’ Hotel Du Temps, visual design (and the execution of said design) seems to be engrained in her.

Even beyond the colorful bookshelves, large leather couch, and stained decorative mirrors, it’s the quirky details that make Alix’s home truly something special. Like a surfboard wearing a headdress and an Empire State Building model – I have no doubt that her young daughter Blanche, with whom she shares her home, will tell stories of these details well into adulthood.
