Michel and Sally Perrin’s homes in Paris and LA

The superbly glamorous homes of Michel and Sally Perrin have graced the pages of Harper’s Bazaar in recent issues and are so stylish, I thought they were worthy of a blog post here. Michel Perrin, the French born CEO of the leather company Perrin Paris, comes from a long line of artisans. His great grandfather founded the family business making leather gloves in 1893. He is married to Sally and they have two daughters, Chloe and Emma.

Sally Perrin worked with interior designer Chahan Minassian, wanting something that was “modern but also harked back to an earlier European period of gilt and mirrors”. I think they did a great job.

Last year, the family moved to Los Angeles. Their new single-story Beverly Hills home, designed in 1950 by Victor Gruen, father of the American shopping mall, is a shrine to midcentury modern, the West Coast style du jour. “It’s quintessential L.A., lots of glass and light,” says Sally, 43. “If you sit in one room, you can see through the entire house…. I can spy on the girls.”
