A grand marriage in Paris

Posted on Fri, 12 Apr 2024 by midcenturyjo

The apartment on Rue du Cirque in Paris’ chic 8th arrondissement by architectural designer Isabelle Stanislas is a marriage of style and substance, of bespoke and vintage. From its grand entrance hall to the sleek, modern kitchen its emphasis is on contemporary luxury living while celebrating the historical shell that contains it.

This renovation of a classic mid-century home in Los Angeles by And And And Studio is a masterclass in elevating a tired old building into a contemporary family home while respecting its design roots. A complete renovation saw the designers gut then rebuild. The result is light-filled and open plan with clean sleek surfaces. Indoors and out meet seamlessly allowing the family easy access to a fabulous pool area.

“This property is situated on the canals of Marina Del Rey and features ocean views on the top floor. The ambience is unique, and the home feels just like an Italian palazzo in the heart of Los Angeles. The home boasts 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, an elevator, sauna, and various living spaces and verandas. Playful, strong marbles were used throughout, alongside Italian-sourced lighting and special items found internationally and at local flea markets.”

“Art and Crafts meets Mid Century design in this characterful and homely house in North London. Beautiful timbers, terracotta flooring, handmade tiles and lime wash paint provide a calm backdrop to playful colours and prints; resulting in a home which is both uplifting and restful in equal measure.”

LA designer Gabrielle Aker “founded Aker Interiors with the innate belief that the spaces we inhabit greatly impact us. The power of beauty and the feeling of home is deeply consequential to the way we live, affecting our emotional, spiritual, & physical selves.” Interiors are highly personalized, a marriage of the client’s individuality and the studio’s eye for detail none more so than their stylish Chelsea project.
