The coolest apartments are always in Paris. This one is by Monaco interior architect team Humbert & Poyet. A stunningly simple fireplace, graphic artwork, classic furnishings by the likes of Eero Saarinen, Mies van der Rohe and Serge Mouille combined with tall ceilings and to-die-for moldings make this apartment in Le Marais a total dream.

Don't get me wrong. I love Haussmannian apartments. But stunning as they are they need a firm but deft design hand so that the contents are not overpowered by the almost saccharine sweet plaster embellishments, the commanding windows, the drool worthy floors. Sandra Benhamou is a story teller, a lover of light, of beautiful objects and furniture, a woman who embraces eclecticism. Hell, she runs with it but her style is clean, with attention to detail and a dash of humour.
