An intimate look inside the boldly designed spaces of Isabelle d’Ornano’s life, from the personal to the professional

Isabelle d’Ornano, cofounder of the French skin care brand Sisley, has created places in her life as unique as they are exceptional. For the first time, Isabelle d’Ornano opens the doors to her personal, family, and professional spaces—from the heart of a Paris apartment to a country house and genuine paradise in nature—in this beautiful, richly illustrated book. This intimate journey goes to London and ends in Paris in the headquarters of Sisley, which she created with her husband, Hubert d’Ornano.

In each of these places, the magic encompassing the luxurious and the spectacular introduces us to the artists and personalities whose friendships bookmark the milestones of Isabelle d’Ornano’s life. Here, beauty reigns and lives through collages, paintings, watercolors, and sculptures, and even on cushions adorned with messages embroidered by Isabelle d’Ornano. Punctuated by Isabelle d’Ornano’s words and mantras, this book is a formidable source of inspiration for decoration enthusiasts and for those attracted to the contrasts, boldness, and talent of Isabelle d’Ornano’s life.


A French beauty magnate’s homes are opulent yet homey –and packed with mementos . . . The newly released Isabelle D’Ornano: What a Beautiful World!  celebrates the octogenarian’s more-is-more décor style.
