Shall we tick off the list? It’s French. It has colour and personality not to mention the amazing art. It’s part Art Deco, part mid century and perhaps a touch of 70s. It has incredible attention to detail (check out the ceiling in the entrance hall). It’s chic. It’s sophisticated but not at all stuffy. It has books, shelves and shelves of books. It’s fabulous. It’s by CSLB Studio.
Some Parisian fabulousness from architecture duo Gaëlle Cuisy and Karine Martin of GplusK. When space is at a premium, these ladies know just what to do, and with a modern aesthetic and a dash of colour.
An amazing collection of artifacts and sculpture, an oh so chic apartment, a stunning Eiffel Tower view and not one but eight de rigueur Chandigarh Chairs by Pierre Jeanneret. Serious case of envy on my part. I wish I was the collector who lives in this stylish abode. Appartement Rivoli by CSLB Studio.

While I anxiously await the project that never seems like it is going to happen (the creation of a library in my third floor unused space), I can only hold back pangs of jealousy when I come across projects like this by Sophie Lallias of Atelier Sofi(A). She created a bedroom and library and left a narrow staircase to access the rest of the apartment. 3.5 metre high bookcases allow for maximum use of a very small space and the result is TONS of book storage, a workspace and a cozy bedroom. (That’s Farrow& Ball’s Tessela wallpaper in the hallway and Cole & Sons Woods & Stars in the bedroom…and these photos are by Benoit Alazard)
Check out another project of Sophie’s here
Haussmannian architecture, signature furniture pieces and a foyer now converted to a library full of books. Just about ticks all the boxes for my perfect Paris apartment. I think I’ll be moving in to this Alma Marceau residence by Studio CMP.
