Après-Midi Recap

Joanie Osburn, Paris – May 2024

Joanie Osburn

Joanie Osburn is an award-winning interior designer, artist, and photographer based in San Francisco, CA. She holds a BA in Humanities from the University of California at Berkeley, a degree in Interior Design and Color from the Rudolph Schaeffer School of Design, San Francisco, and studied painting, photography, and sculpture in Paris and Cal Arts Los Angeles. Whew! That’s a lot of credentials!

Her art is exhibited in galleries and museums across the US, and interior design projects are featured in magazines, newspapers, and books, including the Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Washington Post, House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Sunset Books, and Architectural Digest. Not a bad list!

Café Society: Time Suspended, the Cafes & Bistros of Paris is her book about the Parisian café as an integral part of the city’s daily life no matter the weather, the time of day or year, the mood or the neighborhood. It is the spirit of the café, the dance of the waiters, the camaraderie of the patrons, the perpetual movement and joy, that brings Joanie to share a dollop of history, a shot of insight, and a boatload of images that celebrate the Paris café as a cultural heritage worth celebrating and preserving.

Joanie made a presentation as an interview by her friend, Luke, and spoke about the book, her experience and café life in Paris. Everyone loves the Paris café and you’ll love hearing all about it. Be sure to see the photos below and watch the video.
