A renovated apartment in Paris

Posted on Wed, 7 Nov 2018 by KiM

This apartment, located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris (Les Invalides), had not been renovated for many decades. Much in this space was unsalvageable, but in the end designer Véronique Cotrel was able to maintain some of the jaw-dropping features – parquet floors, moldings, fireplaces. The kitchen became the heart of the home, with most of the appliances hidden from view, and a long bench built to emphasize and make use of the beautiful wall of windows. The result is a dreamy home for a family.

What an absolute pleasure to see a beautifully crafted home that looks like actual humans live in it! So many published spaces have had the life sucked out of them with overstyling and austere minimalism. It is SO refreshing and feels authentic to see the accumulation of real life show up on the mantel and to see evidence of a kitchen that actually gets used. Isle Crawford and her team would be proud of this designer who has managed to create a space that enhances our humanity rather then stifles it. Well done Veronique Cotrel and well done DTI for finding it and sharing it.

Beautiful marriage of old architecture and modern design that is livable and not over the top modern.
