Caroline Tabet is a photographer and she currently lives in this lovely apartment located in the Achrafieh district of Beirut. She has been living here since 2007 and she was drowned by this location particularly because it’s very quiet. She also likes the views and the brightness of this area. The apartment has a very dynamic interior design. It’s very colorful and seems almost chaotic. It’s an artist’s apartment and this fact becomes obvious from the entrance.
The walls of the apartments are filled with beautiful artwork, some of them being photographs made by the owners while others are part of a collaborative project. Caroline’s career began in Paris and you can see many Parisian influences in her work. She decided to return to Lebanon to discover her origins and she really likes the challenges there. Everything is always changing and this is really inspiring, especially for a photographer.
Both Caroline and her husband are working from home most of the time. However, the apartment is really big and they each have their own space. They sometimes work together and they even have a common project. There are many unique elements in this apartment but the thing that the artist treasures most are her negatives and slides. There’s also a great library in there and lots of knick-knacks that make it personal. Even though they really like this apartment, Caroline and her husband plan to move in a smaller place that would allow them to be more flexible.Read an interview with Caroline and see more pictures on Freunde von freunden.
