A surprise in the kitchen

Fabulous French Friday. Is there such a thing? Well there is today because I had to share this delicious Haussmannian apartment in Paris by Studio Razavi Architecture. The bones are great, those white walls and floors the perfect foil for the covetable furniture and art collection but there's a surprise in the kitchen ... after the jump.

Triplex Victoires

It was a while back that Jo featured a few of the photos from this home, and when I stumbled across it on architect Laurent Bourgoiswebsite recently my heart melted and I thought it deserved a complete post. It is quite clear that I am becoming soft for traditional spaces that really highlight and celebrate original architectural details now that I finally have a home where I can celebrate in my way (adoring my wainscoting, curved ceilings, archways, leaded and stained glass windows). I don't really know what exactly it is about this house, only that it has a very magical quality to it. And its elegance is indescribable.

A library to envy

My third floor 'loft' room, since we moved in, was a feral cat rescue sanctuary/junk room and continues to be so as other projects around the house take priority. When I came across this library/garage space I nearly had a stoke. What an amazing space to hang out, enjoy peace and quiet and read a book. I would even consider taking up yoga if I could do it with all that room to move and those views! By Ziegler Antonin Architecte.

Sensual simplicity

If my last post had you averting your eyes in horror perhaps something more monochromatic, more soothing is in order. If you prefer your colour limited to discrete pops and not as a rollicking riot then this home on the Rue St Sauveur, Paris may be more to your liking. Sensual sophistication tempered by rustic chic and artisan industrial by Patricia Miyamoto Architecture.

Outdoor space on the roof

Can you imagine having this as your outdoor space? The landscaping and funiture are enough to blog me away, but throw in the most incredible views of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe and I'm having heart palpitations. By architect Charles Zana
