To French-born, New York–based Robert Couturier, any book about an interior decorator can read like an obituary. “It’s either boring—or deadly,” he says. His own monograph, Robert Couturier: Designing Paradises, out September 23 from Rizzoli, however, is a lively, personal affair, with a large section dedicated to his own home in Kent, Connecticut. The rest of the 224-page tome showcases just a few of Couturier’s most emblematic projects over 30 years, many done in his signature classical French style roughed up with a sense of humor (a jazzy piece of fabric, a surprising objet d’art). From a sprawling Mexican hacienda to a modern Manhattan apartment, the pages pay testament to Couturier’s aesthetic versatility—it ends up being anything but an epitaph.
