When starting off with a plain room, I feel it is more important to add quality over quantity. I always want a piece to pull you into a space. I love when a guest is fascinated over a unique tapestry or interesting collection, it tells them something about your nature.

Temps Perdu

 

Screen Shot 2014-07-01 at 10.00.39 AMFascinated by the resonance of objects that others neglect and discard, Pascale Palun recycles them in her Vox Populi collection, turning the old house in Avignon that serves as her home and workplace into a Proustian sanctuary of memory-laden curious.  Screen Shot 2014-07-01 at 10.01.09 AMWalk through the home of Pascle Palun, it is possible to transverse three centuries in a single foot step. The wallpaper faded, and mottled, dates back to the building’s early history. And yet one has the peculiar feeling of inhabiting both past and future.

She does not “remake” them but rather stops the aging process before the object completely disintegrates. It is in the innate poetry that attracts her. What really interests me is how things have traversed time, she says. Everything has a history, a story, and that’s what drives my creativity.
