An Aesthete's Dream: Saint Cloud Residence by Tristan Auer.... Photo © Yann Deret.

Located in the Parisian suburb of Saint Cloud (9.6 kilometres from the centre of Paris) one of the most exclusive and wealthiest residential areas in France with a rich history centered around the 14th century Château de Saint-Cloud which was once the residence of several French rulers - this family house has been meticulously renovated by atelier Tristan Auer and Wilson Associates, to reflect both the refined elegance that the area’s status demands and the owners’ eclectic taste in art while also providing a comfortable and adaptable environment in which to raise their small children.
Completed in October of 2016, lead designer Tristan Auer - whose previous work before heading his own eponymous studio in collaboration with Dallas-based interior design firm Wilson Associates includes designing boutiques for Cartier and interiors for the Hotel du Louvre and Hotel Les Baines - has managed to transform this three-story, 500 square-meter villa built in the early 20th century into a modern residence that combines a Belle Époque ambiance with a mid-century, minimalist aesthetic.
