Pied a Terre

Photography by Paul Costello

Pied a terre may suggest feet on the ground, but who says whimsy and elan can’t levitate a small space of under a thousand square feet into a delightfully livable illusion? Of course it helps when ceilings are high, architecture is handsomely detailed, and a grand little drawing room opens to the tiniest of patios. For Decorations Lucullus it wasn’t size that would dictate style, but the romance of playful scale.
