One of the main components of Helene Aumont’s design philosophy is quite simple:“The function of design is to enhance the lives of the people living in the house.”
This guiding principle, combined with Aumont’s inherent good taste, sets the stage for her stunning interior designs.
“The best design is that which does not blare its perfection. Impeccable design and taste do not equal perfection. Exquisite objects are, in their very nature, imperfect and the designer’s role should be to harmonize an interior around those objects, while keeping the sensibilities of the home’s owners at the forefront of design.”
Helene Aumont’s spaces invite a kind of French-California languor and her eclectic mixture of contemporary clean designs combined with carefully selected art and antiques combined with opulent but subtle fabrics bespeaks a European nonchalance. Important works of art invite contemplation by having the most appropriate furnishings placed in just the right spot.
“Houses must be lived in and a well-designed house begins when a designer listens closely to the practical needs and the wish lists of the clients,” Helene stresses.
A welcoming, artful disarray speaks to a new level of luxury—the luxury of having a home whose design and furnishings attest to the confidence and vision not only of the designer, but of the clients.
