“I don’t care about style anymore, in a way I hate style, I hate design. It’s about life, and generosity.”
~ Joseph Dirand

In Paris’ Seventh Arrondissement, French architect Joseph Dirand created a home for his family inspired by the simplicity of 17th-century Italian interiors with grayed stucco walls and the inherent natural beauty of marble and wood. With artwork from the likes of Cy Twombly and Irving Penn, Dirand incorporates furnishings from Le Corbusier, Serge Mouille and Oscar Niemeyer that are modern classics and arguably works of art in themselves.

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).
