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. Helene Aumont’s spaces invite a kind of French-California languor. Her eclectic mixture of contemporary clean designs, carefully selected art and antiques and opulent but subtle fabrics bespeaks a European nonchalance. Her art is to invite contemplation by having the most appropriate furnishings placed in just the right spot.
