As she savors the last few days of prebaby calm, Clara happily admits, “I’m excited for him to take over the space now.”
🛠 Do It Yourself
Simplify your palette Even though Clara and Luca have somewhat divergent styles, by using white and sandy hues through their home (except for a few key colorful accents), they achieve a visual unity.
Decorate with plants “Being quarantined here changed my relationship with my plants,” says Clara. “They were my little piece of the external world. I really loved gardening inside during that time, it was very soothing. I think it brings a lot to your life—it brightens the space in such a big way.”
Work with your architecture (if you can) To make Clara’s pink-tiled bathroom a little roomier, architect Laure Chouraqui, who helped her with the job, had the idea of building the shelves within the chimney. If you own your place—or are allowed to renovate—consider ways you can make the building’s architecture work for you.
