GUCCI OPEN HOUSE / At home with Coralie Jouhier

‘Home is a place where you can be you. It should be full of good energy.’ So says chef Coralie Jouhier, who shares an apartment in the 11th arrondissement of Paris with her partner Daquisiline Gomis. The couple run a pair of Afro-vegan eateries, where home, work and play are closely intertwined. Here, Coralie and Daquisiline wear new-season Gucci and share a glimpse of the home they have built together. Photography by Hill and Aubrey. Styling by Tati Cotliar.

‘The 11th is a nice neighbourhood with lots of independent shops and a local grocery store.

My restaurant, Le Tricycle, is not too far from here, too. The restaurant has become an extension of my house. Our kitchen at home is small, but it’s an OK size for Paris. I have a good view, so I like to cook and look out of the window, especially when there’s blue sky.’

‘My partner and I are citizens of the world. I’m from the Caribbean and Daqui is from Senegal and Guinea-Bissau – so we each bring our own culture, feelings and energy to our space.

We’ve moved around a lot. We lived in Japan for a bit – they have the best food. I think we ate six lunches a day. When you move, you try and take a little bit of the good energy from that country and create something cool and new.’

‘I started painting five years ago and it’s started to become a second passion.

At first I did really small pieces, but I want to do bigger pieces inspired by Australian art. I’d like to make more time for it, but at the moment I just do it when I feel like it. I find it really peaceful and it brings colour to the house.’

‘My dream is to live in a hot place again, maybe in the Caribbean or Africa.

I’m a comfy girl; I like the simple life: good music, good food. One day I’d like to live in an open house with no doors. I’d have a beautiful garden with lots of fruit and veggies and an outside kitchen. And a stream. Can I have a stream?’
