Luxury details in a Haussmannian apartment. Isn’t that what we all crave in our dream Parisian home? Located between Place de la Concorde and the Elysée Palace, this 230m2 home has a fresh contemporary look with that oh so French style. “Faubourg Saint-Honoré” by interior architects and designers Le Berre Vevaud.
You now what they say. First impressions matter and this wallpapered entry hall certainly makes a statement. Life’s too short for boring beige. Queen’s Gate Residence, London by Nebihe Cihan Studio.
“This Paris Apartment project was a total restoration. The idea was to focus on the swirl design of the entrance floor and build outwards, stretching the space beyond this initial focal point. Height and curves prevail. Whilst the project was to remain relaxed and comfortable, we introduced curated design design and art pieces. The place feels personal, authentic but quite grandiose in the reception areas.”
It’s as much about bold colour as it is about Parisian chic, personality as it is about style and panache. French finesse by Studio ALM .

A little jewel box of an apartment in Sydney’s Potts Point. Rich colours, an eclectic mix of furniture, surrounded by life’s treasures and mementos, of course a wall of books and to top it off an iconic view. Contemporary living in an Art Deco building done right. I want to move in. By Weir Phillips Architects.
