Twenty new projects by master Parisian interior designer Jacques Grange redefine his visionary talent. Over the course of his fifty-year career, Jacques Grange has designed homes for the world's most respected collectors, artists, designers, and tastemakers, including Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, François Pinault, Robert Agostinelli, Valentino, Israel Englander, Stavros Niarchos, Terry and Jean de Gunzburg, Lauren and Andres Santo Domingo, Aerin Lauder, Per Skarstedt, and HRH the Princess of Hanover. His classical training at Paris's École Boulle and École Camondo, his early experience with the French design legend Henri Samuel, and his passion for contemporary art have resulted in a uniquely discerning approach to interior design that has lasting appeal. Grange's seemingly natural, "non-designed" aesthetic--at once simple and sophisticated, lavish and comfortable--is revealed through his unusual way of grouping objects, masterful combinations of materials and colors, and an unparalleled sense of style and attention to detail. This essential volume illustrates Grange's wide-ranging inspirations and exquisite taste through twenty new residential projects in Europe and America, from a luxury hôtel particulier in Paris to a chic beachside cabana in Comporta, Portugal, and a mid-century modern house in Los Angeles. Texts and interviews by Parisian gallerist Pierre Passebon delineate Grange's approach to design and decoration, and provide insight into the evolution of taste in collecting and decorating. All-new, previously unpublished photography by François Halard captures these singular projects with profound sensibility.

Somewhere between dating and eternal bliss lies a secret world of glamour, opulence, decadence and the real amorous adventures of the haut monde. Paris is a sexy, sinful romantic playground—and what could be more thrilling than to be an American girl let loose in the City of Lights? Alexandra Ward is a Sorbonne student with a fabulous French boyfriend who's just gone AWOL and a growing love affair with all things Parisian. She realizes her new life a la Francais feels entirely like play-acting—in a good way. But what happens when a playful flirtation with the CEO of an international luxury conglomerate turns into not just a "dejeuner"—lunch— at the Ritz, but diving for canary diamonds in the famous swimming pool of the Hotel Ritz? And when that same Master of the Monde (who just happens to be married, bien sur) asks Alexandra to be something more than a date but something, well, different than a girlfriend? French Trysts is about slipping into a new life like it's a couture suit, about the thrill of seeing what really goes on behind the gated Hotel Particuliers of the rich and famous Bon Ton de Paris, about the power of sex and the redemption of true romance. Praise for Kirsten Lobe's Paris Hangover: "A witty mousse."—Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean "Wickedly entertaining."—Chicago Tribune "Decadent, sexy."—Frederic Beigbeder, author of 99 Francs and L'égoïste romantique
