3 Paris Apartments (that could be houses) for your viewing pleasure this Friday. When going through some of our tear sheets this past week, we were surprised that among the homes we loved, we bookmarked not one, not two, but three apartments from the City of Lights. Just had to share. Can't wait to help some of our clients incorporate some of this Parisian sophistication into their homes.
1. Stefano Pilati’s Eclectic Paris Duplex. The fashion designer (creative director of Italian menswear brand Ermenegildo Zegna) brings iconoclastic panache to his duplex in the heart of Paris. From: Architectural Digest, March 2013.
This could be a great study color...
Don't miss the black and white paneling...
This photo has been highly pinned, check out those bookshelves!
2. An Art-Filled Apartment in Paris's Marais district. For close to 25 years, decorative-arts dealers Laurence and Patrick Seguin have championed the work of a handful of French modernists. The couple’s home is a tribute to their shared passion. From: Architectural Digest, May 2013.
Love the large, white windows and the hardwoods, look close, we love that pattern.
Another shot of those hardwoods here...
Yes, this is a Parisian apartment, these pictures above are from the entire first floor space. Always good to look at the real thing when someone tells us they want a French-inspired home...
3. A truly unique apartment by the talented Isabelle Stanislas and Leiko Oshima of the French design firm SO-AN. This thoroughly contemporary space, located on Rue Le Notre, is surrounded by spectacular views beginning with an impressive view of the Eiffel Tower (see below). From: The D Pages Blog.
Look close for the view of the Eiffel Tower. Notice the brass/gold light.
Gray floors, our favorite!
Inspired and in love with our job,
